Announcement   LAST DATE FOR DEFININTE CHRISTMAS DELIVERY FOR USA AND ROW IS DECEMBER 10TH. AFTER THAT THE POST OFFICE DOES NOT MAKE ANY GUARANTEES YOUR PACKAGE WILL ARRIVE ON TIME. ORDER NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT. HUGS, JUDITH

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 Item selection at the left. Each section will show you the complete collection in that style. There are eight different collections, plus one with food and accessories.

It is now nearly the end of November and time to get your Christmas or Hanukah orders in quickly. I will do my best to fill them but please remember I am only one person, and can only make a finite number of items. The last date for definite Christmas delivery to the US and Rest of World except the UK will be December 10th, but my experience last year shows that some customers were still waiting on Christmas eve, so to be sure, get your orders in as early as you can. Any order over $100.00 will be sent tracked for the rest of this year. ~Any less and you will need to request it and pay the extra which is $8.00. I will still take Christmas orders after that date, but cannot promise on time delivery unless you are in the UK.

I've been creating my own design lines of 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'). Some are made from "scratch," some have an unfinished pre-constructed piece as a base for my work. The painting, ageing, finishing, colour and design, accessorising, and distressing techniques are all my own. I also design and print most of my own fabrics and tapestries. All of my items are arranged in sections, and in each section you will find coordinating pieces which look great together. Just look to the left to find the sections.

ALL PACKAGES WILL BE SENT WITHIN 2 WORKING DAYS. Your invoice postage will not be exact unless you are buying just one item. If you want an exact amount please send me a list of what you want to buy, I will weigh them and get back to you with the amount you will be charged. It will be less than the amount you see, and savings can be considerable if you have a large order. If you order and see a very large postage be assured the excess will be refunded to you on the day I post.

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.

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. Any questions will be answered within a few hours, but remember, when you are awake, I am probably asleep.

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

About

I make beautiful and unusual twelfth scale dollhouse house furniture and accessories to enhance your dollhouse.

I've been making miniatures for about 25 years. I've always made things beginning when I was a child making doll clothes and hats. I have made many different things over the years, using nearly every product imaginable, but now specialise in unique, hand finished twelfth scale doll house furniture and accessories.
My imagination keeps me awake at night creating new designs . Often in the morning I realise they are not going to work but it doesn't turn off my mind. I have always tried to be different with my product offerings and have developed a reputation for fair prices, originality, quality, speed and reliability. I learned long ago that people like to see items which they can use together, rather than one perfect item that may be very beautiful but does not go with anything else, so that is how I arrange my products. Each section has many co ordinating pieces my customers can use to arrange any room.
I design and make what I can from scratch. Tables, foods, plates,shelves, decorative items, all my bed linens and remake what I can't. I use some bare wood furniture pieces which I get from my ethical suppliers. I use these as an artist uses paper or paint. This keeps costs down as completely handmade items take a lot of time and are too costly for most people. I use many techniques such as hand carving, distressing, ageing, staining, sanding, hand painting, and specialise in tiny handpainted rosebuds and gold random brushing for my shabby chic pieces.
Over the years I have done doll house fairs, sometimes 20 a year. Now I sell exclusively on Etsy and am very grateful for my many kind and loyal customers. Judith

Payment
I prefer PayPal, or credit cards, but will accept British checks.I accept PayPal or the new Direct Checkout where you can use your credit card. This is a new option and I'm glad to have it
Shipping
We ship by air, except to the UK, the day after we get an order, and it can take from 7-10 days to cross the pond to the USA., and sometimes longer to Asia or Australia or Canada. I do NOT send tracked unless expressly requested. It costs an extra $10.00 for me to do this and few customers want to pay that. If you do please send me a convo. Safe arrival rates are 99.5%. I combine postages for multiple buys and any amounts charged but not used will be refunded through paypal or credit card.

Some locations take much longer than others for packages to arrive. Canada is one place, and New York is another. Please be patient. In some cases it has taken up to a month for arrival. Late November and all of December always take longer so please get your Christmas orders in as early as you can.

Be aware that packages leaving here on passenger planes will go through customs here (for safety sake) and take less time to arrive as they can skip customs on your side. But if they go by cargo plane it is the opposite. No customs here but definately over there. This can add two weeks to travel time. I have no control at all over how they travel. Nor can i track items once they leave the UK--even if you have paid for tracking. You will have to do that I'm afraid. Thanks for reading. Judith
Refunds and Exchanges
I am always willing to discuss any problems with your purchased items but please do not leave bad feedback if you are unhappy. Contact me. My pictures reflect the actual item unless it says otherwise so be sure to take a good look.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do some custom work, mainly with colors or bespread choices, but nearly any piece of furniture that you see can also be done in any color if you request it. I keep my costs low and thus can keep my prices low. Please do not ask for special deals for large purchases. If I can make any price changes I will let you know.
