Announcement   Welcome! 19th Day Miniatures specializes in unique fantasy dollhouse miniatures for the imaginative collector.

~~~~Please note that Etsy's direct check-out option for credit card payments is not working at the moment, please feel free to use Paypal as the payment option (which is an option during checkout). You can link your credit card to your Paypal account if you haven't already so paying by credit is still an option through Paypal. My apologies, this is an ongoing problem with Etsy's credit card processor company WorldPay, and credit card payments through them are not being processed at all. For days now, it seems. There is no word on when this issue will be fixed and Etsy isn't exactly helping it's sellers by answering any questions at all other than "they are working on it, and have no time frame yet on when it will be resolved". If you have any issues with check out please contact me for assistance.

Not intended for children under 12 years of age. My miniatures are for collecting, not built to withstand play.

!!!!!-I am willing to do PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS on any of my items should you need to. Please contact me if you'd like to do this type of layaway :) The item will be reserved for you alone once you contact me and make the first week's payment. I will simply make a payment listing for what you can pay per week, and another payment listing for you the following weeks until it's paid off. Please be sure you are willing to go through with the transactions. Because if you don't complete the layaway, and it wasn't available for sale to other people during the period of time it was on layaway-then I may have lost a sale to someone else during that time it was reserved for you. Please make sure to communicate what is going on and I will try my best to help you if you're hitting a rough patch financially by giving you more time to finish your payments or breaking them up into smaller payments over more time. Please understand what a bind an unfinished layaway puts me into. 3 days maximum without communication about what's going on will be allowed before the layaway is cancelled and whatever money paid in is non-refundable. Thank you for understanding my position on this!!!!!!!

Welcome to 19th Day Miniatures. Why the odd name? My husband, my son, and my daughter were all born on the 19th day of their respective months of the year. So I have a soft spot for the 19th day :) Call it a lucky number, I guess.

I love creating, working with my hands. I got into minis when I picked up a half-finished dollhouse for $10. It was such a strange thing, though. Full of odd angles and dark corners, strangely-shaped rooms. It spoke to me, whispering: "Witch Cottage. I tried my hand at making miniatures and it was so fun that I decided to do this full time. I strive to give you the best work that I am capable of. If you aren't satisfied, contact me and we'll figure out a way to fix it. I don't want you ever leaving my store unhappy, that's not the point of collecting anything.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I am flexible on payments, if you need to work out a payment arrangement with me then just ask. Believe me, I know how life gets sometimes. Usually a small non-refundable down payment (even five dollars) is all it takes to hold an item. I've had quite a few people pop in and ask me to hold an item until payday only to never hear back from them again so this sorts out who's serious or not. After a small down payment, we'll work out a weekly payment plan that suits your personal budget. I am quite willing to work with you so that you can comfortably afford anything in my shop you'd like without stressing your week. Agreed upon payments must be paid in a timely manner around the discussed date. After the 3 days non payment, the layaway is cancelled and the item will be relisted for general sale! No previous payments will be refunded. Communication is key to a successful transaction. Just let me know what's going on if something crops up. And I am sorry I cannot give people more time, but I have to know you are serious about the purchase. While the item is being held, someone else might have wanted or purchased the item and I will have lost a sale. So to be fair, this is the way it must be because a lot of work as well as time and money is invested into the making of a miniature piece.
Shipping
Your item(s) will be shipped after the clearance of payment method. If there are contrasting addresses shown on Paypal and Etsy, the items will be shipped to the paypal confirmed address. We hold no responsibility for items that are not received due to invalid address. If the address given is inaccurate, then the item will be sent back to the sender (19th Day Miniatures). We will send the item back to you again after receiving the additional shipping payment. Please remember that the packages may be delayed by approximately 6 weeks due to custom delays. This is a rare event. International custom charges are the customer’s responsibility. We hold no responsibility for any additional fees for shipping. It can take me up to five business days (I don't ship on weekends) maximum to ship your items, I'm a busy Mom so hopefully you can understand! It will never be longer than that unless you're waiting on another item to be shipped with your purchase from me. If you'd like shipping insurance to protect your package, please contact me. I am happy to add the cost onto your item before you buy it. If you choose not to purchase it, and they break it in transit or lose it completely, I cannot be held accountable. I pack extremely careful, but I have had a few get damaged during rough handling by USPS. Many hours of labor (many days usually per piece) is invested in these miniatures and I have expenses incurred in the making of them. These miniatures are not an easy fix or easy to replace like some shops can do quickly and easily on other handmade items. What takes them a day can take me over a week to remake. If you need faster shipping email me before you buy what you're looking at and I will upgrade the shipping option to priority and add the expense of the upgrade to the shipping price. If I ever find I've overcharged for shipping I'll refund the difference. Usually I find I've undercharged if anything though :o

International customers, unless you request priority international mail I will ship it the cheaper way. The problem with this is that no insurance available should it break in transit. I am not responsible for this because after it leaves my hands what happens to it is not my fault! Trust me when I say I pack extremely well in bubble wrap and pillow fiber fill but even then sometimes things happen. Many hours of labor (sometimes weeks per piece) is invested in these miniatures and I have expenses incurred in the making of them. These miniatures are not an easy fix or easy to replace. If you'd like the higher trackable and insurable international priority shipping please contact me and I will change the listing to reflect the higher shipping cost. I try to pack well and I label everything with a computer printed clear address labels but there are no guarantees of your package arriving in perfect condition or at all possibly. Please be advised. I will not be held accountable if regular international mail packages are lost or broken and no money will be refunded. *Due to etsy's new policy on returns, sellers are now forced to accept returns regardless of how it hurts small businesses with delicate handmade items that may break in transit and be unsalable. I highly disagree with this, but now I have no choice. Should you decide to return an item, you the customer is responsible for the return postal costs Thank you for understanding this store policy.
Refunds and Exchanges
I cannot issue refunds or accept returns, so please make sure you want the items before you click the buy button. Why put us both through a case of buyer's remorse? I think this rule is more than fair considering all details are visible in the photos and all measurements are listed :) Please read the listings well and ask questions before buying if you are unsure of something. Review the photos well before buying as well. Most details are clear in the photos but if you'd like more information I'm happy to help. Just contact me and I will try to answer all questions to the best of my ability. Thank you for understanding my "no returns" policy. Delicate miniatures are at risk to become damaged during shipping and shipping them twice doubles that risk of them being broken in transit. So if I were to offer returns there are no guarantees the item will be in good enough shape to be resold after you return it. Just another reason why returns are not accepted. Please be advised. *Due to etsy's new policy on returns, sellers are now forced to accept returns regardless of how it hurts small businesses with delicate handmade items that may break in transit and be unsalable.

Additional policies and FAQs
Usually I no longer accept custom orders due to people not picking up their items after they request something be made for them. If you would really like something made and are willing to pay in full up front contact me and I'll see if I can do it.
