About LDelaney

Sales 36,292
On Etsy since 2009

From the Studio of New Orleans's Mysterious Miniaturist...

From a haunted mansion in the New Orleans Garden District, Lady Delaney crafts miniatures, mysteries, and miniature mysteries. She is assisted in these endeavors by two gentlemanly tuxedoed cats, and the New Orleans ghosts. Her time at art school was unremarkable and warrants no further exposition here. The products you see before you today are the result of self-taught exploration, a slightly unruly nature, and much garbage digging.

Since launching her modest miniature storefront on Etsy in 2009, Lady has gone on to catch the attention of publishers, curators, and window dresserers, with her creations infiltrating international private collections, the National Building Museum in DC, solo exhibitions, and numerous national publications. In 2017, her DIY book, All Dolled Up, was a #1 New Release on Amazon. Her freelance career includes stints collaborating with Tiffany & Co., Monique Lhuillier, and FAO Schwarz. Her musings have appeared in the Etsy Seller Handbook and Atlas Obscura.

Lady Delaney is delight to communicate with Etsy patrons via her handler, Lauren Delaney George, who happens to share many of the aforementioned biographical details. They, along with the cats, look forward to helping you create the perfect custom project or extra special gift.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to disruptions from COVID-19 and potential shipping carrier delays, there’s a chance your package may not arrive on the originally estimated date. On our end, we're working 'round the clock to get orders in the mail quickly, but recently several customers have reported the following:

-USPS-issued tracking numbers showing "error" or "invalid"
-Frozen tracking numbers updating no progress
-Packages making circuitous routes to exotic and far-flung lands before arriving to their destination
-Increased delivery times for both international and domestic packages, with up to two-three weeks for U.S. domestic and one month for international

The good news is that every last wayward package has turned up (knock on miniature wood), even if its route has been a little...er, unconventional. Please feel free to message us if you have any questions and thank you for your understanding during these strange times!

Items ship USPS first class with tracking numbers. Items generally leave the studio within 3-5 days, with the exception of larger and custom orders, which may take up to a month to complete. Items shipping to the same address will batch unless otherwise requested. Please message me if you need rush shipping!
