Gifts By Small Fry is a small company owned and operated by me, Linda Swisher, in Carlsbad, California. I am a former school teacher and personnel administrator who got into the world of collectibles in l995 and never looked back. This business is a great challenge and a constant learning experience. I have been growing my company and expanding its horizons ever since it began. My company is dedicated to providing quality collectibles and giving the customer a completely satisfying shopping experience. I am always learning and trying out new ways to provide you with great products at great prices with superb customer service.Since I specialize in original autographs, I go out of my way to make sure that all my company’s autographs are authentic. I try to get as many of the autographs as I can myself, but when I do utilize other professionals in the business for help, I make sure I know who they are and how the autographs were obtained. I also get outside authentications from the best authentication companies in the business on many of my products. I stand behind everything I sell with a 100 % lifetime guarantee or a full refund would be made. Whenever possible, I will tell you exactly where and when the product was signed.My favorite quote is “May the child within your heart stay forever.” That stems from my love of the James Barrie story, Peter Pan, and the idea of never having to grow up---at least in your heart anyway. I have been enamored with the story since I was a little girl. Walt Disney inspired me in that regard as well with his telling of the Peter Pan tale in the 1953, animated film version of the story. You will note that I have a lot of Peter Pan items on my site for this very reason—particularly Tinker Bell items. Margaret Kerry, Disney’s original reference model for Tinker Bell, is a dear, dear friend, and she has opened up the world of Disney magic to me even more over the years. I have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing some of the original actors who were involved in the Disney version of Peter Pan and their stories have made it even more special for me. I even had the opportunity to talk about how Walt Disney became enamored with the story of Peter Pan in Kirriemuir, Scotland, the birthplace of James Barrie who wrote Peter Pan, for Barrie’s 150th birthday celebration in May of 2010. I learned so much on that trip and brought back information and products to share with all of you.I want you to enjoy looking at the different things that I offer and of course, hope you will buy. I take special requests and will try to get you what you are looking for whenever possible. I am always open to suggestions as well.So please, enjoy my site, and definitely stay young at heart!!
