The Little Custom Shoppe and Little Miss Shai Doll Clothing


I ordered a #3 Little Darling doll that I was not happy with the work of the painter. As many of you may know, I tried to sell the doll and found that process too frustrating and decided to keep her. Then I found Shai Hoffer. I can't say enough about Miss Shai Hoffer as a doll artisan.

She took my Little Darling Joy and did a complete repaint. She did include the freckles that I had wanted so much. So why stop there. My Little Darling, Joy, now has a new faceup, a new hairstyle, and new clothes.

I highly recommend Shai Hoffer for any makeovers or repairs your dear dolly might want or need. My #2, Hope will also get a new makeover once Joy returns home. Hope has been a working girl for a couple of years and could really use a wonderful spa day and total makeover. She has earned it and Miss Shai Hoffer is the perfect artisan for the job. You will not be dissappointed.
Hi Shai, My daughter's birthday is the beginning of October. I would love to give her the memory bear of her grandfather then. Can you please contact me! It's been 10-11 months that you've had it.
Sent you a PM 😊
Shai takes such pride and puts so much care into her work with flawless and top quality products. I have purchased many items and was extremely happy with all of them. My daughter’s custom American Girl doll is perfect and when we want to the store in NYC, so many customers made comments about it.
Thanks Sheíla Hoffer for embroidering these beautiful Bible bags for my girls. They brought them to church today and I was thinking I haven’t posted a picture of them yet. Thanks again for blessing me with their beautiful names and beautiful flower that you embroidered. You are so creative. We appreciate you!

Hoffer began her love of sewing even before she started kindergarten.

The only difference was that if Sheíla wanted it, she had to "create" it. What some may have viewed as a hardship, Hoffer viewed as a challenge calling out to b

"Spring" is from the Girls of the Orient line from Ruby Red Galleria. Same body as the Ruby Red Fashion Friends dolls. I've been very impressed with the quality and attention to detail in the outfits. Perfect collector doll for adults bit an older child.


Sometimes our journey leads us to places we don't expect, and the friendships that blossom with unlikely people often end up the closest to our hearts.

May 2021 bring you closer to those you hold dear. :)



Ruby Red Fashion Friends Hanna repainted like a Little Darling. Painted eyes and lashes are my favorite!


Ruby Red Fashion Friends Kayla repaint.


Sometimes you just need a fresh set of eyes... Literally! :) This girl went from brown eyes to hazel to match her owner.


Another childhood doll received a makeover before being passed to the next generation.


I strongly believe that having a doll that you can relate to can be one of the most powerful healing tools on the planet. Even if that doll is a Drag Queen. May your heart be full and your friends be many, Penny/Jack.
