We try our best to respond to questions within 1-3 business days, but please forgive us if we get busy! In the mean time, here are the answers to a few common questions:
How can I purchase one of these dolls?
Each one of our completed dolls is a work of art that takes a great deal of time and effort to create. It is very difficult to make enough to meet the demand! When we do have a completed doll, it is listed for purchase on the available babies page, though they generally sell pretty quick! Signing up for our newsletter is the best way to stay informed as to which dolls will be available at which times, and for how much.
If you are not lucky enough to snag one of Maria's original works, you can also arrange with another artist to have a kit painted to your taste. See my article discussing this process here: How to buy a silicone reborn doll.
How much do these dolls cost?
The prices for finished work vary a lot based on the size of the doll, the renown of the sculptor, the look of the kit, etc. For this reason we do not have a general list of prices for our dolls. The price of each piece will be sent and shared before it is made available for purchase.
Do you ship to ________?
Yes! I do all of my shipping via UPS and am able to ship to any location globally that UPS will deliver. Our company is located in the United States and is able to deliver domestically within 2-5 business days and internationally within 3-7 business days in most cases. International buyers should be aware that they will be responsible for customs fees and that shipping can sometimes be delayed by customs, especially around the holidays.
Can you take custom orders?
Unfortunately, Maria's schedule has become too crowded for custom orders! We try our best to provide a good selection of finished work as often as possible. But no custom orders will be accepted.
Do you allow payment plans?
Absolutely! Our store accepts long term payment plans through Shop Pay and other programs. If you cannot use our available payment methods for whatever reason, please let us know and we can discuss what accommodations we can make.
When will my doll ship?
If you have purchased a finished doll (already painted and ready to enjoy) then your doll will ship out within 2 business days of your order. If you've ordered one of our blank, unpainted kits, then the order will ship within 3 weeks of the order. The wait time is due to the blank kits being poured-on-demand, which means we don't make it until you order it!
Who are you and where are you located?
Check out our About Us page here. Our doll studio is located in Hendersonville, North Carolina in the eastern United States.
