Shop Terms & Layaway
Your dream reborn, beautifully made, affordably priced!
I sell highly realistic, premium quality custom reborn dolls + premade OOAK babies! Yes, I do accept layaway and payment plans on all custom or existing babies in my shop!
As of January 1, 2019 due to the rising costs of materials and my painting techniques and turnaround, I've made changes to my layaway plans and deposits and final value cost (adjusted accordingly.)
--Custom orders currently CLOSED--
4 slots will be open, when advertised. Or you can request to be put on the waiting list for the next available queue. It takes about 4-6 weeks to paint your doll, and an additional 1-2 mos for fully rooted babies (depending on thickness or style).
I charge $249 for deposit. This covers shipping cost and kit costs, as well as any customization stuffs (mohair, rooting needles, eyes, tummy plate). Deposits are non-refundable, only after the order has been confirmed and the kit has been ordered on my end (& the reborn process has begun).
Combi $1047-1197 (painted hair with rooted hair throughout the crown)
Painted hair $947-1047
Barely there hair painted hair $897-997 (I no longer sell baldies)
(variation includes $50 more in the category for eyes, $50 more for belly plate/torso)
These prices take effect April 2019. Any orders currently reserved in the queue are still honoring my old pricing.
I only offer sculpts I have IN STOCK. I have created over 400 babies & have a full portfolio on facebook.com/Rebornsweet & on my webpage www.rebornsweet.com. I have done prototypes by some of the top reborn sculptors like Ann Timmerman, Lorraine Yophi, Laura Lee Eagles, Olga Auer, Samantha Gregory, Lenka Hucinova, Iveta Eckertova, Angela Degner, Toby Morgan, Cathy Rowland, Bonnie Sieben, and companies like Puppen-Traumland, Macpherson Crafts, and Truborn. My business was also featured in GLOBE & MAIL (Dec 2015).
All my custom babies go home with a three piece outfit set, sleeper & handknit bonnet (and sometimes matching romper), pacifier (magnetized or modified depending on the doll/request), hair bow, blanket, birth certificate & the sculpt's signed authenticity sheet by artist.
I require the balance to be paid in full before shipping. Deposit on custom dolls is non-refundable after the order has begun. :D
Shipping is $45 for any baby in Canada; $60 US; $110-150+ (estimate) worldwide.
*** PROTOTYPES ***
I'm ecstatic to reveal that from now on, my prototype babies will all be listed at a set rate (just like my custom order babies) and be available first come first serve (as per custom order listings). They will remain one of a kind as well - no lookalikes. I've long since felt that the way in which prototype babies sell on Ebay and the like, while fair to buyers in a way (making it open to all who want to own) often means dolls sell for a very large cost to their moms with bidding wars. Not always of course, but at a certain quality the cost is so varied it can make it so that so few can actually purchase the finished baby (even after they've fallen in love with it). I've now set mine at a cap, to keep them both affordable AND special in their own right.
One of the things I set out to do with my babies, coming into the industry, was make it so that my babies could be affordable to all, while achieving the highest level of realism and joy to own. Because a prototype is a great honour and first of the sculpts in the market place, they do deserve to be priced higher. HOWEVER, I want to keep it reasonable. From now on, all my prototype babies will now be $1797 and instantly open for 3 mos layaway upon being listed. I will give lead time for each baby before it's put in shop as well. So buyer can choose to do 3 payments of $600 as well. Again keeping baby affordable but still special.
Prototypes will never be remade, I will not do a lookalike of baby either.
I'm absolutely thrilled to finally be able to do this. And eliminate Ebay much as possible (I will still list there but also for set pricing).
Prototype babies go home with the same layette as customs + a boutique knit hat and romper set, extra goodies, and a custom new baby photo album of all pictures taken of baby for its showcase.
*** LAYAWAY PLANS IN EFFECT (as of January 1st, 2019)
* For existing babies, they are available on a first come first serve basis. For layaway, the initial non-refundable deposit will be $249 to reserve with the remaining balance to be paid in 3 installments over 3 months. Any payments not received will result in forfeiture of all payments made and reborn will be resold, unless prior arrangements have been made.
*** FREE BABIES ***
YES! I give away FREE reborn babies on my FB page (/rebornsweet) Giveaways are on a quasi regular schedule and will be posted often with LOTS of lead time so everyone can participate and no one misses out. Dolls are given away by random draw (and not by request). Private messages asking for freebies WILL be ignored.
Thank you for being a fan and supporting my shop - it means the world to me! ♥
