#2) Spirits are just like people. When you purchase a haunted doll from me, it is an adoption. Give it some time, and lots of love, and you will get back exactly what you put into the relationship. Your experience will depend on many factors, I suggest researching haunted dolls and the phenomena surrounding them to be sure you are ready for the commitment. I can not and will not guarantee that your doll will "perform" for you.
#3) I am not responsible for any paranormal activity you may experience when you invite a spirit into your home. Please research prior to adoption.
I can hold dolls, jewelry, or anything for up to 6 weeks on Reserve.

If you need more time, or chance your mind, just email me. The most important factor, to me, is that the spirit and caregiver make the proper connection. If you are not feeling it, please UNRESERVE and give that spirit a chance to find the right connection.
No layaways or payment arrangements. We no longer do lay-away or payment arrangements as of 3/1/2017. However, we do reserve dolls for up to 6 weeks or longer, and we can also do custom orders
