Minimum charge per doll is $50 + return shipping.
(including $20 per doll assessment fee which is credited toward work completed)

I must assess your doll in person in order to give you an exact cost. After assessment, I will email you a proposed restoration list for your approval. Then payment must be received in full before restoration begins (check or money order if in the US, bank transfer or money order if outside the US).  

Turn-Around Time: After payment is in my possession, I will email with the estimated return shipping week, generally about 4 - 6 weeks (turn-around time for re-roots may vary). 

I will then send you the USPS.com email when I print your return shipping label.

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. 

All transactions are final. In the rare case that a client may be unsatisfied, I thank you for the opportunity to offer a rework (only).

Please email me at RestorBabs@aol.com to make an appointment for your dolls.


I look forward to working with you!
