This is an adjustable white metal Kaiser doll stand. It is about 2 inches tall when fully retracted (as in the picture), and extends to about 3-1/2 inches. Most of my ornaments will fit in one of these stands. The second picture shows an example of an ornament displayed in a stand. (Please note that this listing is just for the stand--the chiropractor ornament is not included.)
Many of my ornaments get displayed on a tree at Christmas, and then live the rest of the year in one of these stands on someone's desk or mantel or bookcase or wherever. Others never get to the tree, but just get displayed in the stand. All of my people ornaments will fit in a stand, but for some of the odd shapes (especially the family ornaments, and the bride and groom) a stand from which they hang works a lot better.
For an ornament to be used as a gift, when you don't know for sure what the recipient is going to do with it, a stand is a great idea, because it increases the options.
If you order a stand at the same time you order ornaments, there is no additional shipping charge for the stand.
CHRISTMAS DELIVERY. Of course you'd like to know if your order is going to arrive before Christmas. I almost always ship in-stock items no later than the next business day, and the USPS says that "most" first class mail is delivered in three days. (You also have an option to purchase a priority shipping upgrade at checkout.) It seems quite likely, then, that you'll receive your order in four or five days, but I should point out that once I hand a package over to the USPS, I have no control over what they will or will not do with it.
$3.95 for one ornament, plus 65 cents for each additional ornament.
I send almost all of my orders by USPS First Class, and First Class postage rates are based solely on weight and not on distance. I charge $3.95 for the first ornament in an order (no matter where that order is going in the U.S.), and 65 cents each for additional ornaments. This will be calculated for you in your shopping cart, where you will also be given the opportunity to upgrade shipping to priority mail.
I always ship in-stock items within two business days, and usually before that. All orders are packed carefully and tightly, and shipped in sturdy boxes. Most of the boxes are new, but I occasionally use recycled boxes, if they’re in good condition, for some larger orders.
Returns & exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you’re not happy, I’m not happy. I post detailed pictures of my ornaments, describe them as accurately as I can, and answer any questions posed about them, but I know it’s still possible that in rare circumstances what you receive just isn’t what you were expecting. If that were to happen, and you weren't happy with your purchase, I would want you to return the ornament (in the same packaging in which I sent it—that’s important) within a few days, for a full refund or exchange, whichever you prefer.
I am very happy to personalize any ornament, at no extra charge, by writing a name, date, and/or whatever else you'd like on it. I also make all my people ornaments in several hair colors, and for most of the sports players, in different colored uniforms, and I am happy to offer these choices to my customers when they are available.
