Friends from Riverside, Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties and beyond: Do you pass "routinely" through Redlands on your travels?
Make Us a “regular” stop!
We are (finally!) OPEN at our NEW LOCATION inside SweetPea and Me Specialty Bakery (special-order, by appointment only) in the TriCity Shopping Center!!!! The phone (same number: 909-798-9313), email (email@example.com), internet (website and Facebook) and card-processing functions are all working and the door is unlocked for business. This shop will continue to be a "work-in-progress" for awhile, but we can certainly conduct sales while we work to redecorate--and refill our shelves, now that we again have a viable shipping address! We thank you for your patience during this move and for your ongoing support to keep us open--and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Having worked ourselves to exhaustion yesterday pulling our fabrics off the wall (don't worry--they will reappear here once we "finalize" our habitat arrangements!) and removing our store decals from the outside windows (they are toast--and a booger to pull off, although they did not fragment too much--it's OK we don't want to cover up the windows here!) at our old location, we are "relaxing" today (not really--we just dressed our new "Greeter"--the somewhat goofy Boxer Dog has won that honor for the time being--and s/he is outside our door with a newly printed, hopefully familiar-looking red, white and blue "Welcome" sign to help you find us)--and happily greeting more of you than we expected to find us so soon--you guys are awesome!
We are nominally open "regular hours" this first week of operation, EXCEPT we will be closed on both Tuesday, June 25, and Friday, June 28, to completely finish "evacuating" our old 6th Street Shop for the next tenant.
Of COURSE we brought along the Decorative Flags (now "guarded" by our plush Dogs!), Raggedy Ann and Andy and our 3-D Greeting Card Collections (both Swing and Pop-Up)!
THIS is the DISCOUNT COUPON now appearing inside the June issues of the Redlands Coupons Monthly, Highland Coupons Monthly and Yucaipa Coupons Monthly!
Many of these are delivered right to houses in these areas, but if you don't happen to receive one on your doorstep, never fear! We have a stack of them in store, so pick one up when you visit and take advantage of all the cool deals inside!
Our destination on an unsettled, semi-stormy Wednesday, May 22, was a hidden gem of desert solitude in the Providence Mountains within the East Mojave Preserve between I-40 and I-15 "on the way" to popular (and highly populated) venues like Las Vegas and the Colorado River! And yes, we did indeed get wet, but only a little before the rain showers moved on! There is something special about the desert during and immediately after rainfall and the area near Hole-in-the Wall Visitor Center and Campground was no exception on this day!
LOOK at all of the swag we have collected for our "Fantastic Spring" Customer Appreciation Gift Basket!
What do you think our chances of fitting it ALL into that basket are?
HA! We DID it!
Our "Fantastic Spring" Gift Basket is wrapped and ready (with ALL of the swag we showed above inside!), just sitting here waiting for more entries from you to WIN! We'll be taking those at least until we close this location at the end of May and maybe for a few days once we reopen over in TriCity Center, but one thing for sure, whoever scores this will have to fetch it from our new, location! Meanwhile be sure to get in here and get qualified!
We just dropped off this gift basket from Star Tulip Stuffies at Paulson Orthodontics!
It's our contribution to all of the awesome prizes Dr. Paulson is adding from a BUNCH of LOCAL BUSINESSES that will be awarded along with a FREE full treatment of Braces to the WINNER of his "Give Parents a Smile Contest", for which he is accepting nominations NOW!
We have not forgotten about our "Fantastic Spring" Customer Appreciation Gift Basket Drawing! We will be choosing a winner from among all of you hopeful entrants as soon as we move the cart holding that fabulous prize basket over to the new location in just a few more days...!
Hard to believe it's already time to think about Graduations (U of R has already had all of their ceremonies)!
For a keepsake salutation in honor of the occasion that will certainly make an impression, choose one of our 3-D PopUp Graduation Cards to recognize this major achievement!
Honoring a NEW GRADUATE with a Party--or just want to add some additional "Rah-rah" to honor the achievement?
Mark the location and/or the occasion with a cool House or Garden Size Decorative Graduation Flag!
When we selected our collection of nine different realistic Bunnies in the Myoni Collection from Aurora, we made a point of choosing ones with no reference to a specific holiday! We think Bunnies like these are in season anytime--especially for anyone who loves the real ones and/or collects plush versions. As we make way for Graduation "Stuff" in the coming days, these guys will simply "relocate" to our Barnyard Habitat where you will still be able to find them!
We recently added some beautiful Spring Plush Animals from Douglas!
Look for these in our Barnyard and Stable Habitats!
It is hard to believe that Star Tulip Stuffies, House of Fine Stuffed Animals has been open for over four years home again in Redlands, CA (we started here back in 2003 in the now-defunct old downtown Redlands Mall)!
We have lived and worked and been your neighbors in this area for more than 40 years! Star Tulip Stuffies was originally opened as a storefront in the Redlands Mall back in 2003. Since then a growing following of stuffed animal aficionados has managed to find, support and spread the word about us.
From the very beginning our intent has been to bring our customers the very best selection of the finest quality plush creatures we can find while keeping our prices as rational as we can.
We are all about choices; we like nothing better than to present several different companies’ version of the same animal because we have found that every designer will have a different take on that same critter. Thus, if you visit us, which we certainly hope to make you curious enough to do, you should not be surprised to find that, not only do we have an “unusual” creature, say a porcupine or an opossum, rendered in plush, but that we also will likely have four or five or even more styles from as many different manufacturers (with accompanying differences in sizes and prices!) of that individual kind of animal! This also means that while you will find respected and familiar names like Gund, Ganz, Douglas Cuddle Toy, Fiesta Toys, Aurora, Wild Republic, etc. on many of our products, we make a point of searching out quality companies less well known, especially in California, that you may only brush up against on a trip to the zoo or aquarium (we really love the educational kick provided by those extremely realistic representations!) or while traveling east of the Rocky Mountains (many retailers are simply unwilling to stand the cost of shipping some of these…)--or that are just outrageously esoteric (we have plush germs--in Petri dishes, no less--by GiantMicrobes and body parts--if I only had a brain--from I [Heart] Guts!
Our selection is so diverse (we are simply stuffed with “stuff”, but then “stuff” is what we do!) in order to keep track of everything we have resorted to arrangement by habitat! When you visit (by now you know you have to if you can…) you will eventually notice that our entire shop is suggestive of the interior and exterior of a gigantic fantastic playhouse or dollhouse. “Inside” live authentic Raggedy Ann and Andy, Sesame Street characters, etc. Also living the pampered “indoor” life are plush Cats and Teddy Bears “Outside” you will find our rather extensive collection of realistic Dog Breeds (this is a personal favorite category of ours, so if someone makes a decent version of a specific breed, we will try to have it for you!), Barnyard Animals, Horses, Frog and Turtle ponds, Forest critters, Desert animals, Birds, and creatures of Central and South America, Australia, Africa and Asia as well as an area devoted to Ocean life! There is even a section “inhabited” by the fantasmagorical creatures of the imagination including dragons, faeries, unicorns and the like!
About Our Name: The “Star Tulip” part of our name alludes to our other life as occasional botanists! “Star tulips” are members of a rather large genus, Calochortus, meaning “beautiful grass”, of native Californian lilies that includes species with enchanting common names like “butterfly” or “mariposa tulips” and “faerie lanterns”. The butterfly tulips have large goblet-shaped tulip-style flowers, often marked with spots and bobbing in the breeze above their cohabitating grasses like the insects they appear to mimic. The more diminutive faerie lanterns have closed flowers on slender overarched stems and could easily be imagined to light the nighttime activities of elfin woodland inhabitants. Our tiny namesakes open fully wide and close to the ground as if they were stars scattered across the forest floor! The alliteration of “Star Tulip” and “Stuffies” was just too tempting to pass up!
