Today is Monday, December 10, 2018
We are OPEN until 6 PM
in Suite 101 in the Redlands Plaza at 330 6th Street in Downtown
We just took down our Sale Table and are in the process of reconfiguring it so we can bring you
a fun FREE series of "activities" (although you won't really have to do anything but show up if you want to!) that we will
preview with a special version just for Christmas this coming weekend! (Parents with school-age kids with an interest in nature--and
especially home-schoolers--watch for details about this--it
may be something you can easily incorporate into your children's courses of study...)
Meanwhile, we just added
a NEW Gift-with-Purchase Customer Reward to all of the "incentives" (DISCOUNTS, Gift drawings, et. al.) that you can
already take advantage of when you shop (LOCAL!) with us! It's not a moment too soon for the season! There are only 15
days left until Christmas--and we are not even done receiving new shipments of "stuff" for you!
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE on Caden Henderson's Teddy Bear Drive for kids stuck in Loma Linda
Children's Hospital over Christmas:
A LOT of our favorite stuffed animal lovers have stepped up to help Caden meet his goal of 250 Teddy
Bears for Loma Linda Childeren's Hospital this year, BUT my inside sources tell me that he is perilously close to NOT collecting
enough Bears! We still have plenty at special prices, so if you know someone who would love to help out by donating a Bear
or two at ANY of the collection locations, please LET THEM KNOW now! We only have about a week left to collect enough Bears!
Many thanks from us and Caden!
Seeing a frosting
of snow on our local mountains (we almost forgot how beautiful that is!) has inspired us to "harvest" the ripe red apples
from our display window and chase the fall sunflowers away until next year! It's time to get a more wintery scene in there
and see if we cannot attract some Ice Faeries and Friends for a holiday visit...
So if you do not immediately see us when
you come to visit, give a shout-out--we're likely working on getting that window prepared for them--and we'd love to be "interrupted"
to come out for a break to serve you!
Don't forget that besides our ongoing Discounts and Customer Rewards, SALES TAX is ALWAYS INCLUDED
in our prices--and we have holiday designs and colors of paper bags and tissue paper for our always-complimentary gift-bag
of an order we've been eagerly anticipating from Ganz did indeed arrive Thursday afternoon! We now have an additional
two BRAND NEW styles of Cats from Ganz's lush Heritage Collection, absolutely adorable seated Tabbies in yummy
Orange and stunning Grey!
There are a few items left to ship on this same order, including a couple more Cats--if Ganz receives
enough to fill the existing pieces on reserve orders! We're also anticipating some additions to our Crystal Ornament styles,
hopefully in plenty of time for Christmas!
All five of those huge boxes that arrived on Tuesday from Wild Republic are opened and representatives
of everything that shipped are on the shelves. We'll be posting images soon, but meanwhile besides adding some absolutely
fabulous new species of good-sized, really interesting Sharks and a new Humpback Whale to our Ocean
Habitat, along with installing a gorgeous new large laying White Tiger and Snow Leopard in "Asia", we've
filled in the perches in our Audubon Bird Tree (these are the cool plush birds that emit authentic calls when squeezed)!
AND we have the following
Caden Henderson is again
collecting Teddy Bears for the kids stuck in Loma Linda's Children's Hospital over the Christmas
holidays--and we get to help!
All of the drop-off sites, including
us, have Caden's Collection Boxes so we can accept your donated Teddy Bears any time between now and December 17! Scroll down
for all the information, including our offers on some SPECIAL TEDDY BEARS you can purchase from us at seriously reduced prices
to put into Caden's Collection Box!
Naturalist in your family or circle of friends? Should you ever be in need of a gift for said nature-lover, we want to remind
you all that, while our plush is cute and huggable, most of it is far more than mere toys! Our realistic and highly detailed
stuffed animals come from exactly the same suppliers who help stock the gift shops at Zoos, Museums, Aquaria, National and
State Parks and Monuments (except that we have a huge selection all in one place that you might otherwise have to search several
such venues to find)! Many are artistically lovely enough to display as home decor as well as to appreciate for their tactile
and visual comfort value! If you've never visited our shop, the need for a unique gift that reinforces an interest in and
appreciation for Nature (and maybe even serves as a concrete reminder of an awesome family experience visiting any institution
Do you have an established or b
--or even the great outdoors itself) could just be your perfect excuse
to come check us out--we promise you will be amazed!
Do remember to check out our gift choices before you do all of your shopping
at big-box and department stores with the cookie-cutter selections! We, like all of our Downtown small business colleagues,
go out of our way to bring you things you just won't find in the "usual" places! Find unique gifts (holiday and year-long)
for the most special friends and family members in your lives by shopping local!
Note: If you saw something on this
site a day or more ago and find it is no longer here (or
it appears this site has not been updated daily--we occasionally have issues with Earthlink's usually reliable
site builder!), check our Facebook address (link above)--there
is more "space" there to leave things up longer (and it usually works when the website is not available to us for editing),
so we try to do that in case anyone missed something here!
Just in time for your holiday shopping, our little present for you--a NEW Gift with Purchase
Gorgeous NEW styles of CATS from the
Ganz Heritage Collection have begun to arrive...!
OK, OK--you are right--this is NOT a Cat either!
With one or two notable exceptions, this being one of the better ones, plush German Shepherds available
right now just come up a little lame. The faces all seem not quite realistically credible for such a majestic dog! We made
a point of making room in the Ganz shipment for this well-executed version (the other great ones are made by Bocchetta Plush
in Australia--we have one laying style from them in stock..)!
Looks like our Greeter Cheetah is all
ready to work on those Elf duties...!
Star Tulip Stuffies
is pleased to again support Caden’s Bear Drive with the following SPECIAL OFFERS on Teddy Bears to be added to
year we will start by offering a choice between TWO Teddy Bears at
SPECIAL PRICES as indicated!
Spencer normally sells for $16-18, including tax, before any of our regular discounts, the
best of which would be about $2 off, so usually the lowest regular price for Spencer would be $14-16. HOWEVER, IF you
buy him and put him directly into Caden's Collection Box we will charge ONLY $12, including tax.
Bumbley sits on our Teddy Bear
shelf at the regular price of $23, incl. tax, best price with our usual discount, $20. It costs you ONLY $16,
incl. tax to add a Bumbly to Caden’s Collection Box.
(Spencer or Bumbley is still the regular price if he goes home with you)!
We will deduct an additional $2
from either Spencer’s or Bumbley’s special price if you spend $20 or more on ANYTHING ELSE at the same time
in our Shop (we WILL apply any coupon discount to regular-priced "stuff", too)!
We are happy to provide this "incentive" for you to help
Caden reach his goal of 250 Teddy Bears for kids at Loma Linda Children's Hospital by Christmas!
We reserve the right to substitute Teddy Bear styles
and/or special prices should we run out of either Spencer or Bumbley during this year’s Teddy Bear Drive!
**VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:**
If you would very much like to donate Spencer and/or Bumbley to Caden's Collection and live too
far away or simply cannot get to our Shop for any reason, PLEASE CONTACT US!
We can send you an email invoice for whatever Teddy
Bear(s) you choose to donate that you can pay through PayPal from your computer. PayPal accepts
your credit card information to apply directly and only to your purchase without us even being able to access it and sends
both you and us a receipt record of your transaction. You DO NOT HAVE TO BE A PayPal MEMBER to make a one-time payment; you
just "Use as a Guest", following the (EASY) prompts at the link to Paypal our email invoice will include! There is NO
SERVICE CHARGE to you to do this, just the cost of the Bear(s)!
A third back-up case of Spencer
is on its way from First and Main!
We have AGAIN run out of Bumbley,
but we should be receiving a couple more cases of him today or tomorrow from First and Main!
Caden's Collection Box is beginning
to fill--Teddy Bears are beginning to be visible near the top of that box! With several cases of Bumbleys and/or Spencers
recently arrived from First and Main your mission, should you decide to accept it, has been to help us to move as many
of them as we can keep putting onto that cart into Caden's Box--and you HAVE been! In fact, the Bumbley supply has dwindled
significantly--and we did indeed just order more!
First look at Christmas "Stuff" is
in our seasonal display area!
Oooooh! MORE Christmas "Stuff"...!
CHRISTMAS 3-D PopUp Cards are
A few examples of the two dozen or
so styles of Christmas Decorative Flags now in store!
THIS is the DISCOUNT COUPON now appearing inside the December issues of the Redlands
Coupons Monthly and Highland Coupons Monthly!
of these are delivered right to houses in these areas, but if you don't happen to receive one on your doorstep, never fear!
We have a stack of them in store, so pick one up when you visit and take advantage of all the cool deals inside!
We are SO excited to have just received
our VERY FIRST shipment from Bocchetta Plush direct from Queensland, Australia--complete with customs documents
affixed to the boxes!
Although from Italian origins, now that Bocchetta Plush has been based in Australia for around 15 years, we would
expect them to be quite expert at designing and producing plush versions of animals that inhabit their adopted home--and well
they do as you can see from the examples we chose, including a few representing some (actual, real) Aussie fauna we had never
heard of before! How cool is that!
Equally if not more impressive is the artistry with which the designers at Bocchetta have rendered certain specific
breeds of Cats and Dogs, some that are unavailable to us from US vendors! We are pleased to present these initial offerings
from both collections! We look forward to adding additional styles in the future!
Why not try our NEW SERVICE for your
next event with an animal (real or imagined) motif?
We do ask that you allow us at least 4-6 weeks ahead of your event to work with you for these functional
reasons imposed by the space-time continuum of the Universe:
all cases we will need to special-order the contents of your goodie bags (In the interest of diversity, we seldom if ever
keep more than a few pieces of any style of item on hand and almost certainly would not have desirable coordinating gift items
already in store.)
--There are a LOT of available choices
to mix and match among our many suppliers and you will want time to explore and think about exactly what you want once you
see some possibilities!
--We always check stock with our suppliers
to be sure they can ship what you select in a timely fashion and to allow you to decide among alternatives, if not.
--It can take up to two weeks for items to arrive once
we place an actual order from some of our best vendors, many of whom are on the east coast—and at least a few days for
us to assemble your favors.
