Announcement   Welcome to Gallery Allee, home of Soft Hearts (TM) where you will find hand-sewn sock animals, and other gifts including hand-sewn doll clothes for Blythe, Pullip, and 25 cm, Obitsu brand dolls as well as miniature doll clothes for Ai, Petite Blythe, Little Pullip, and Little Dal dolls. I make all of my patterns and designs. Please take a look around the shop and view the available and the "sales" items for a sampling of completed projects. If you would like a custom order, please feel free to "convo" me. All of my work is unique, and I'll be happy to work with you on the specific item, color and theme.

I also love to make hand-sewn sock animals, and I have made several over the years. I do my best to give each one a unique personality.

I enjoy taking photographs of my pets. In particular, I love to photograph my little guinea pig, Biscuit, as she is quite a ham. She has her own Facebook page and a growing fan base. You can see her by searching for her name, Biscuit. Her photos are staged in various hand-made settings. Biscuit recently helped me to wrote a children's book in which she is the main character. The book is titled "Biscuit, The Humble and Loving Guinea Pig." Each chapter is a vignette that instructs children in how to become kind, responsible citizens. Biscuit recently released her second book, "Biscuit's ABC and 123 Book." It introduces children to the alphabet and the numbers 1 - 10. Biscuit's third book, "Biscuit Takes Care of her Puppy," is also available. It explains the responsibility of dog care to young children. All three books are very colorful and are filled with photos that children love.

Thank you for visiting Gallery Allee, and I hope you will stop by again.

Hello, I am Lauren Allee, and I wish to welcome you to Gallery Allee where I am launching my new product line, Soft Hearts. Soft Hearts, like my prior and other current artistic endeavors, focus on animal representations. However, whereas I typically use oil pastels to create bold, contemporary, realistic looking paintings of animals, Soft Hearts are constructed using new socks, new gloves, vintage buttons, trims, and threads that yield whimsical animal characters.

Each Soft Heart is a unique, one-of-a-kind sock and glove animal creation. Each is hand-sewn and has the trademark red heart emblazoned upon it. Vintage buttons are used for the eyes, noses, and clothing. The trims on the clothing are vintage as well. Like the Soft Hearts, their clothing is hand cut and hand-sewn.

Soft Hearts are toys, however, due to their delicate nature and their small parts, they present a choking hazard to children under three years of age. Soft Hearts make a lovely addition to either a sock animal collection, other doll collection, or decorator item. While Soft Hearts are most appropriate for individuals 3 years and older, they can be made baby-friendly. Just "convo" me with a custom request to meet your needs.

Each Soft Heart comes gift-wrapped in clear cellophane lined with colorful paper shred.

I hope you enjoy your visit to Gallery Allee.

Sincerely,

Lauren Allee

Shipping
Gallery Allee sends all Soft Hearts by United States mail. Except for holidays and Sundays, when the U.S. Postal Service is closed for business, Soft Hearts, if already made, ship within 24 hours of receipt of the buyer's full payment. Soft Hearts and other made-to-order items ship once within about one week of the order and upon buyer's approval of the finished product.

For deliveries within the United States, the shipping fee includes the current fee the U.S. Postal Service charges for delivery confirmation. This fee also provides shipping insurance in the event the item is lost or stolen in transit. Additional fees will apply for item(s) exceeding $50.00 in value. The cost is paid by the buyer.

In order to minimize the chance of damage to fragile items such as Soft Hearts plush animals,, Gallery Allee packs them in a properly sized shipping box.

Books take approximately 2-3 weeks to reach domestic locations and 6 - 8 weeks to ship outside the U.S.A. Each book is professionally published and shipped from an off-site publisher once payment for a publication is received by Gallery Allee. The shipping costs reflect standard shipping times. If expedited shipping is desired, the shipping cost will increase, and a shipping quote will be provided.

If the buyer wishes to ship by an alternate means, please advise Gallery Allee for assistance.

Buyer assumes all shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges

For returns, please advise Gallery Allee to make arrangements for shipping. Unless damaged in transit to the buyer, return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer. To be eligible for refund, returns must be made within 7 days of receiving the item(s) purchased. A refund (excluding all shipping costs) will be issued to the buyer. Returned items must be returned in their shipping container or other similar shipping container to prevent damage during the return transit. Tracking and delivery confirmation must be included to allow seller to verify and track the return.

If damage occurs in shipping an item to you, take a clear digital photograph of the package and of the damaged item, and send it by the Etsy "convo" system to galleryallee. For consideration, the digital photo is to be delivered within 2 days of receipt of your item.
