The Restoration Process -
How does it work?
I look forward to working
Please ship your entire doll (as opposed to the head only). This is very important so I do not have to handle the head and hair.
Please send your dolls nude (no clothing or jewelry please!)
Please use: white
tissue and/or 1 - 2 pieces of bubble wrap, or other plain packaging paper
(nothing colored or printed)
Photos: Please take any desired 'before' photos before you ship your package.
If you would like to send more than 12 dolls together, please let me know.
*Please do not send payment with your
doll(s) unless we have already discussed the exact cost.*
If your name and/or email are on your package return address, I will do my best to notify you via email when your package is safely in my possession -- otherwise I may not be able to notify you until I have opened your package.
After I have had a chance to open your package, I will email you my assessment, and we will finalize, via email, your restoration list and total cost at that time. Please note that packages are opened on a first come - first served basis, so your patience is much appreciated!
I will then email you when
your payment arrives safely.
Turn-Around Time: When payment arrives I will give you an estimated return shipping date, generally about 4 - 6 weeks (turn-around time for re-roots and green treatments will vary). I will then confirm the actual shipping date via an email from usps.com when I print your return label information.
I treat every doll with great care, as if she were my own. While I do my best to return your dolls in a timely manner, I take great pride in my art work and in making sure that restorations are done carefully and correctly.
A rush order (one week turn around from the time payment is
received) may be possible.
Photos - I regret
that I am unable to take 'before' and 'after' photos of dolls.
($20 per doll assessment fee
which is credited toward work completed)
