Announcement   Welcome to my little dolly shop! I am very busy these days: please read my shop announcement for details below. Thank you!

HOLIDAY UPDATE (please read if you are interested in purchasing a dolly)

Thank you all so much for your amazing support and encouragement. Things have been swimmingly busy and I am so grateful to the kind words and love you all send my way! It has been a very busy few weeks and I am trying to keep on top of things. I am currently NOT taking custom orders but will again have custom spots in January.

the following dates and times are the last listings for the holiday season. Details on post December 1st shop operations follow. Thanks!

Dolls will be listed at the following dates/times:(etz)

Thursday November 26 at 2 pm
Friday November 27 at 2pm and 8pm
Saturday November 28 at 11am and 4pm
Monday November 30 at 12noon and 6pm

All dolls will be shipped December 1st.

I will be creating a "rush order" shipment listing which you can purchase along with a doll if you would like to pay extra for shipping within North America ONLY.
.

AFTER December 1st
there will be sporadic listings of dolls as they are made and you may continue to purchase the rush-order shipping if you like, but I am not sure how productive I will be at that time as I am working on gifts for family and friends. Customers WITHIN Ontario need not purchase rush order shipping as shipping within Ontario already includes expedited shipping, automatically. THANK YOU!!!

I will be closing up shop for the holidays DECEMBER 10, all orders will be shipped on or before December 10.

I have had such a fun time being a sleepless dolly maker the past little bit, but I look forward to a little break, some long walks and more reasonable snuggle-time with my family. I plan on doing 4 HUGE THANK YOU giveaways in the new year and hopefully unveiling some new designs and dolly lines, so please do keep updated and in touch via instagram @humbletoys and on facebook (www.facebook.com/humblehome) -- and hopefully here on etsy with the new "shop updates" thingy that I have yet to actually have time to look at and sort out.

Thank you thank you thank you!!
Much love
Anwen


*****important***** please do not purchase a RESERVED LISTING or CUSTOM LISTING item that states it is reserved for someone specific. If you would like to place a custom order please purchase a CUSTOM DOLL DOWN PAYMENT listing. Thank you. If there are no CUSTOM DOLL DOWN PAYMENT listings visible it means I am swamped with orders and please browse through the available dolls or check in on my facebook or convo me to see when I might be making more custom spots available. Thank you!!

What a treasure. I couldn't be more excited to give this beautiful doll to my daughter for her Birthday. She is going to love her, as I do.

What a darling! I have been wanting one of humbletoys "prairie girls" and can't believe this little one is mine. Her colors all blend together so well and her little face is so sweet. The craftsmanship is really high and also well enough made to withstand hours of play. I highly recommend this doll maker!

About

mess-making-extraordinaire

I love to make things.
Especially for creative, imaginative folk!

I am very good at making messes.

I LOVE to make dolls and quirkyness for *kids* of ALL ages!

I marvel at this wild world and am so grateful for the quiet life I get to live: I hope to share some of this joy, wonder and gratitude through my work. It's a little something I can do to help pay our bills and support the network of farms, makers and workers that we know and love.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
You can read about some of the process on my blog.

    I am a stay at home mama to four beautiful girls. I love making of all sorts and encouraging my kids to do the same! We like to sew and draw and paint and play outside, dancing, singing, pretending to garden and generally making messes.

Halo and Welcome! I hope you find some enJOYment browsing in my shop. You can see past and future etsy listings at my facebook page (www.facebook.com/humblehome) if you are interested.

I love using natural, upcycled/recyled and extra fun materials. I stuff most of my dolls and stuffies with poly-fill which is inexpensive and easy to work with - I can stuff custom orders with wool or other natural fibers upon request. I often have wool, cotton and hemp stuffing on hand - just ask!

I am in the process of really honing my collection and developing new designs and products over the next few months. Bear with me while I play! I love feedback, feel free to share any thoughts with me via facebook or convo here on etsy!

I am embarking on full-time crafting for the first time ever - which is really exciting and also very scary! Trying to make a living doing what I love. I really appreciate any social media support, blog love, facebook love etc, if you feel so inclined. Thanks!

I strive to share joy in my work and love to see and hear that what I make with my hands can bring a spark of joy into someone's heart.

Payment
I accept paypal currently. If you need to use an alternative form of payment, please let me know and we can try and work it out.

I ship ready-made items within 1-3 days of receipt of payment, generally. At some times there may be some delay. Please see delivery policy for more details.
Shipping
Shipping costs are listed with the item.
I will be shipping once or twice weekly, more frequently as time allows. If you need something urgently to be shipped, please let me know and I will do what I can for you, and can ship priority mail at an extra cost. Please let me know if you want priority shipping before you purchase and i can adjust the shipping cost, alternately i can create a shipping listing for you to purchase, afterwards.

I will ship international, upon request.

Due to increases in shipping costs the shipping prices listed do NOT include tracking or insurance. (Tracking is generally included within Canada, but not always).
If you would like to upgrade please let me know.

I cannot refund/reimburse for items lost in the mail. Let me know if you would like to upgrade and I can give you an estimation of the extra cost (usually about 10$ in north america) for the item(s) you are purchasing.
Refunds and Exchanges
I cannot refund/replace uninsured items lost in the mail. I have yet to have a problem with this (knock on wood!) but do please convo me if you suspect your item is lost and we can see if it can be resolved!

If you are unhappy with an item please contact me and hopefully we can work it out.

I will assess refunds and exchanges on a case by case basis.

I will not refund or exchange commissioned pieces.
Thanks!
Additional policies and FAQs
I love making and really get a lot of joy doing what I do. I strive for quality and hope you will enjoy my creations. I consider what I make "art" primarily, art that is intended for enjoyment and play. It is the buyers discretion as to whether something is suitable for a child to play with - for example some dolls have fleece hair which can be pulled apart if not played with gently, or some embellishments on the dolls (chain necklaces, beaded bits etc.) could be broken without care. I cannot refund or exchange items that are damaged through play. If there is a structural issue with your item upon receipt, please let me know.

To keep the dolls and creatures affordable and in line with my *way* of making (what really brings me joy!) the clothing and accessories are often left with unfinished hems and all kinds of scrappy goodness - this is intentional part of the style of the doll and my own making process. I also feel that it encourages creative play with kids - giving them a sense that things don't need to *perfect* - opening up possibilities for their own creativity to expand the dolly universe - creating their own clothes and scenes for play.

**all of my creations should be washed and cared for by hand. Dolls and stuffed animals etc. should be surface washed only and laid out to dry. They often include a wide mix of fibres that have different needs, but will all be just fine if you handwash. Machine wash at your own risk.

WHOLESALE AND CONSIGNMENT: Please contact me if you are interested in carrying any of our creations in your own physical shop! I have done some wholesale and consignment in the past and am interested in working with you to create one of a kind lines for your shop or providing some of my standard designs for you. I generally have a 1000$ minimum purchase policy, but convo me for details.

Please contact me if you would like more info or have any questions. Thank you!!
