Four new dolls on the virtual shelves...

Dear readers,

I have added four Kiki in the Meadow dolls today to my webshop.
Update: All four dolls have found a new home, thank you!

 As some of you know, new law consumer protection rules ("Button-Lösung") came into force 1st of August in Germany, you can read here more about it. While this certainly is of great help for customers, it is quite difficult for sellers to handle technically.

I am using Bigcartel as a shop window for the time being due to new law consumer protection rules in Germany. To not infringe any law, I will have to change quite a few things for my webshop first due to a large customer base in Germany.
If you would like to purchase an item, you are welcome to send an email to orders@frokenskicklig.com to reserve a product in the webshop. I will then get in touch with you regarding billing information, shipping options etc and send you an invoice. Please note that a purchase agreement comes into force first after you have received and paid the invoice. Emailing me for reservation does not commit to purchase.

If there is more than one person being interested in one of these dolls, I will draw the lucky one today or tomorrow who then will be able to purchase the item.

I am sorry for the inconvenience, but I am sure we´ll manage it that way until there is a better solution. Have fun window shopping! 



Oh my! 
A whole basket with cherries
Is what Kiki has for lunch today
Wait and see, I say
Your tummy will be quite upset
Pish-posh, says Kiki
And takes another cherry

This pretty little set contains a Kiki in the Meadow doll with undies, soft mohair shoes, leggings, a dress and a nightgown. Kiki comes with a basket with cherries and a pillow filled with - you guess it - cherrypits because of course her tummy did hurt in the night. 

Did I ever told you that Kiki´s hair 
Is braided like the cinnamon buns
Grandfather uses to bake
On tuesdays, sometimes on sundays?
But today it is Kiki who is baking
In her little dotted apron
Behind grandfather´s cottage
Under the blackthorn bush

A Kiki in the Meadow set for everyone who loves to eat cinnamon buns! This doll comes with undies, soft mohair shoes, a pretty dress, a pinafore, three little baking forms and a tin bowl, two cinnamon buns and a jar with flour plus a little tea towel for floury hands.

On sundays Kiki uses to
Take a walk through the meadows 
Across the fields, along the path
Through the woods and back home
She always brings
Her little backpack 
With lots of snailshells and pebbles
Pine cones and branchlets 

This beautiful set contains a Kiki in the Meadow doll with undies, soft mohair shoes, a batiste blouse, dungarees, a kerchief, a mohair scarf and a backpack for all those treasures Kiki finds in the meadows and fields.
On sunny wednesdays, Kiki love
To bring three cinnamon buns
And her picnic blanket
Down the meadow 
To the sunniest spot
She can sit there for hours
Watching the clouds and the birds
Sometimes she feeds them
With cake crumbs
(the birds, not the clouds)

A sunny set for late August days. This Kiki in the Meadow doll comes with undies, soft mohair shoes, leggings, a dress, a kerchief and a bolero cardigan. Additional she brings her woolen picnic blanket and - of course - a cinnamon bun. She does share the crumbs with the birds, just for the records.


Each of these Kiki in the Meadow sets comes in a tote bag, with a lavender sachet and a sewing & care kit with blusher (a soft cloth and beeswax crayon), extra beads and sewing thread.
Shipping options: Track and trace/ insurance. EU-countries, Switzerland and Norway 12€, everywhere else 24€

As an additional note (because the question came up several times) - except from the tiny basket, the vintage baking forms and the mini jar, everything else - garments and acessories and the doll itself - is entirely made by me. Kiki in the Meadow is a small product series that gives me the opportunity to work on one character (Kiki) yet with each a different look.

Update: All four dolls have found a new home, thank you!
