Faster Shipping for Doll Orders

We are offering a shipping upgrade on doll orders. If you think UPS Ground shipping will be too slow, you can select to have your doll shipped by Priority mail.

The U.S. Postal Service has a holiday shipping calendar posted on their website. They list Dec 20 as the last day to ship by Priority mail to have a package delivered anywhere in the U.S. by Dec 25.

Read more about the USPS holiday mailing guidelines.

A Message from our Shipping Manager

"If you choose the Priority mail shipping upgrade on your doll order, I will personally take your package to the Post Office and ship it to you by Priority mail."

The cut-off date for the offer from the shipping manager is Wednesday night at midnight (Dec 19). So please get your orders in as soon as possible.

Acid Free Storage Boxes Have Arrived!

It has been a long wait, a very long wait, but the manufacturer finally got the production up and running again. And as promised, they immediately sent us a supply of the acid free textile storage boxes!

Some wonder why we just didn't use another manufacturer in the interim. The answer is because we trust that company. We've depended on their products for over 15 years. Their archival products are the best and are worth the wait.

When it comes to preserving your heirloom garments for the next generation, you want to use the best. There was a time when archival storage products of this high quality were only available to museums, historical societies, etc., but now, they are available to you too.

You will find the boxes very easy to assemble. They are large, roomy and strong! Use our Heirloom Naturals™ acid and lignin free, non-buffered tissue paper to wrap each item before placing it inside the box.

For more information on garment care and storage see our printable articles on the website.

The boxes are available individually or as an Heirloom Storage Kit. In addition to the box, the kit also includes a package of the Heirloom Naturals™ tissue paper plus a sample pack each of Forever New Fabric Care Wash and The Stain Remedy.

Order your acid free storage box today! They are in stock, ready to ship.
