Insomesmallwayminis' Shop Announcement

HAPPY NEW YEAR and a huge thank you to all my customers for making 2015 my best year ever on Etsy. There is a little thank you coupon for anyone who purchases in January. It can be used for your next purchase.

WELCOME to my little shop. Everything here is a 1/12th scale miniature. (one inch to one foot) I hope you will have a nice browse. The best way to see my items is to choose a section from the selection at the left. Each section will show you the complete collection in that style. There are seven different collections, plus one with food and accessories. Please take a look at my Christmas section--50% of the takings will go to Breast Cancer Research. SALE ON NOW

I've been making miniatures for nearly 30 years, and I love it! Working in miniature is, for me, a delight. Here you will find my hand finished pieces, all in twelfth scale (1" to 1'). All of my items are arranged in sections , and in each section you will find coordinating pieces which look great together.

ALL PACKAGES WILL BE SENT WITHIN 2 WORKING DAYS. ORDERS OVER $150.00 WILL BE SENT TRACKED AND RECORDED. If you see an item on my site it is ready to go. If accessories are shown they are included.. I adjust postage for multiple orders and refund any postal excess over $1.00, as I never charge more than the actual weight requires. You can use PayPal or use your credit card on the direct checkout system. I accept etsy gift cards but remember to register it with etsy online before you order.

I'm happy to work with you on colors--or special orders but sadly I cannot make items for larger dolls like Blythe or Barbie. Some customers do use my things for their Puki dolls.

You can read more about me and how I make my items in the "About" section, and more about postal rates by continuing to read below. It is eye opening.

I pack very carefully and keep postage as low as I can. I will send within two working days after I receive your payment . Postage will never be more than the cost of the items weighed and ready for shipping. Any extra you have paid will be refunded on the day I send..
My items are very light in weight so you can buy five or six, and still pay the same postage as just one would cost, because any package sent to the USA or Rest of the World must cost at least $11.50 even if it weighs just a few grams. If it requires a box that is what I (and you) must pay. But that same box can hold several items so long as they (together with the box) do not weigh more than 500 grams. So though your postage for several items may appear to be excessive, that is because I must price each item as if it were purchased as just one item. When your postage is adjusted by me, you will receive a refund for everything over the actual weight cost of your package. It can be considerable. If you want an exact amount before you purchase, just send me a conversation and cut and paste a list of the items you plan to buy. I will weigh them and make you a reserve listing with the absolute correct postage. As an example of weights:

Hutch, not filled, 100gms Single bed, dressed, 110gms
Table and 4 chairs, 110 gms Chest of drawers, 110 gms
Side table, 70gms Bedsides, 40gm each, (2)
Screen, 50gms Rocking chair, 35gms
Settle, small, 70gms Cheval Mirror, 50gms
Mailing box, 100gms Mailing box, 100gms
Your total weight, 500gms or under, Your total postal cost: $11.50

It may say more on your basket invoice, but anthing more than that will be refunded by me after purchase.
The next price break is for up to 750gms and is $16.00, and for up to 1000gms, $21.00.

I reserve the right to put tracking on any order I deem it necessary for, ie: very large, unusual location, or over $150.00 in value. About 99.95% of all my packages arrive safely. Please allow sufficient time for this--up to 10 days normally, or if caught by customs or at Christmas it could be as long as a month to Canada or Australia, etc. For orders under $150.00 I DO NOT USE TRACKING UNLESS YOU REQUEST IT. IT COSTS YOU AN ADDITIONAL $9.50 WHICH IS WHAT THE POST OFFICE CHARGES ME, and the only information I get, with tracking, is that the item arrived at Kennedy and is being processed. I do eventually hear if it has been actually delivered. Just not enough info for me. If you want it, please request it and I will adjust your postal costs.

Once you have paid and shipment is on its way, if you change your mind and choose to cancel your order and items have to be returned, you will be responsible for any postage. Refunds will not be issued until the returned item reaches me.

I read and appreciate any feedback (reviews they are now called) and appreciate it if you take the time to leave one.

I hope you will grab a cup of something delicious and have a nice browse. Thank you. Judith
