Announcement   A selection of 1/12 scale miniatures hand finished furniture and accessories for your dolls house

I am already getting busy with Christmas orders so some orders are taking a day or two longer than my normal processing time and as it gets closer to Christmas this might increase even more If you have any questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship please ask.

most items can be custom made to go with your style and Colour scheme.Some of my items are features in the August copy of dollshouse and miniature scene magazine I use mostly bought unfinished furniture but paint effects and finishes are done by me I use mostly Farrow and Ball Paint to give a good quality finish to my items. Food perfume and toiletry bottles and boxes clothing gift bags and most other accessories are hand made by me. Please take a look at my items for sale and come back soon to see newly listed items. Please make sure you have read my policies. All items are miniature dolls house 1/12 scale not full size items and are NOT Suitable for Young Children because of small parts. If you see something you like but would like a different colour or there is something you want to change please ask as many of my items can be custom finished to go with the colour and style of your house. I can often make items similar to ones I have sold so for more ideas look in my sold items and if you still do not see what you want contact me and If I can do it for you I will. If you are unsure about anything please ask I am happy to help and will answer any questions you have.
Many of my items are ready to ship and are usually posted in in 1 or 2 working day sometimes the same day if order comes in before I go to post office. To give my customer more choice but still keep the cost of items down some things are made to order and most will only take about 2 yo 4 days before they are ready to ship But at busy times or for larger orders this can be a longer . A few items take longer because of the paint used and the drying times I will not ship until they are completely dry to avoid damage to the paint while being shipped. I will contact you after you order and tell you when I expect your item to be shipped but if you want to know before ordering or have any other questions about your order you are welcome to contact me.
I now also have another shop on etsy with unrelated items SweetGiftsandTreats

About

How my shop started

I love making things food from fimo perfume bottles from beads gift bags and boxes from paper and card doing paint effects on plane wood items and even a bit of sewing. someone suggested I should try selling some of my things on Etsy and the more I thought about it the more I liked the idea I have sold a few things on eBay before usually if I made something and then decided not to use it in my houses or did not have room I have always had good feedback on the things I sold so I have decided to give it a go. I looked around and there are people on Etsy and at fairs that sell the most beautiful item that have hours and hours of amazing work in them then there are on line and real shops that sell a lot of mass-produced factory made items that are ok but everyone has the same things. we would all love to fill are projects with the very beautiful things but sadly most of us cannot afford to and probably buy one or two of these special items and need to use less expensive things to fill the rooms up so I thought this is what I would try and do things that are a bit more individual but affordable for everyone .so I will be using bought Unfinished furniture and giving it a makeover Using good quality paint wood stains and fabrics I will make most of the accessory myself using fimo beads, card, paper, metal findings, ribbon and fabric . If you are looking for individual affordable things for your houses and shops please take a look at my Etsy shop.
Update I thought with a new year about to start it was a good time to have a bit of an update I have now had my shop open about 20 months and have had about 1100 sales to about 25 different countries. I have had the loveliest customers many who come bake many times and have had the nicest messages from so many about the things they buy some buy just one small item some have furnished the dolls houses completely with custom made items from my shop. Every one of my customers is just as important to me no matter how big or small there orders. I am the only member of my shop and at times it can get busy but I always do my best to get items shipped as quickly as I can and try to pack things the best I can to arrive safely I always keep customers up to date so if I am working on a large custom made order I will contact the buyer often with updates and photos so they know how there order is coming along. My items are not complete handmade I do buy most of the furniture reedy made but unfinished and I paint or use wood stains to give different style finishes and decorations I sometimes use decals to add extra decoration. I had make things like bedding cushions cloths for dolls or dressmakers dummy’s I make accessories like perfume potters bags boxes and other small items used to dress my furniture I handmade food from polymer clay and paint kitchen accessories with specialist enamel paint. I plane over the next year to add more to my rage of both ready to ship and made to order items and I want to stay with the original idea of my shop to provide affordable items that are a bit more individual than the mass produced items. I would like to thank my entire existing customer and look forward to meeting lots on new ones.
Another year how fast it goes It has been a good year for my shop with lots of new customers and lots of old ones returning/ I did not get to add as many new items as i would have liked as i was busy keeping up with demand for existing ones but will try and add more this year. I have had some of my items in Magazines a couple of times this year the latest was in February 2015 edition of the Dolls House magazine it is always exciting to see my work in a magazine and is something I would never have imagined happening when i started. I still work alone from my spare room at home and do everything myself ordering supplies making the items photographing (not very well ) listing shipping and all the bookkeeping and accounts so can be stressful at busy times but i do enjoy what i do and love working with My lovely customers.

Buyers are responsible for any duties or taxes.
Shipping
I am already getting busy with Christmas orders so some orders are taking a day or two longer than my normal processing time and as it gets closer to Christmas this might increase even more If you have any questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship please ask. Also there have been some delays recently with items shipped to US some are taking longer than normal to arrive they are getting to US in quickly but then taking longer to get to customers I am sorry for any inconvenience this is closing but is out of my control and I know many sellers are having the same thing happen.

iItems are sent using Royal Mail shipping times and delivery dates given by royal mail are only an estimate not a guarantee. Tracking is not provided on standard mail in the Uk just a receipt from post office when items are sent. If you want tracking please choose the signed for shipping upgrade.
Most ready to ship items are posted within 2 working days of payment often the next day and sometimes the same day. Made to order items take about 2 to 4 working days before they will be ready to ship larger orders or at very busy times like Holidays/Christmas can take a little longer. Buyers are responsible for any duties or taxes. I do not usually ship on a Saturday and my post office closes at midday on a Friday so ready to ship items bought on a Friday Saturday and Sunday will be shipped on Monday.

Delivery outside uk can be very unpredictable I have shipped 2 boxes the same size on the same day to the same buyer and had 1 arrive after 6 days and the other 2 weeks later I have no control over this so please be patient when waiting for items to arrive. I will not guarantee any delivery date as when an item is shipped I have no control over how long it takes all I can do is post/ship the item as quickly as possible shipping upgrades can help things get there faster but again there is no granted deliver time. I do find most items get to most countries very quickly buyers often get things much faster than they expect but some just take longer. Buyers are responsible for any duties or taxes
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with an item for any reason I will be happy refund the cost of the item (Not including custom made items) but not postage providing the item is returned in Original condition within 14 days of receiving it.Buyers are responsible for paying return postage. Refund will be made when I have received the item back in original condition.
I hope lost items will not be a problem but I will Replace items that can be made again or refund if it can not be replaced. Any that do go missing will be replaced after 15 days in UK 45 days outside UK this is the amount of time before Royal Mail consider items lost.
I can’t be responsible for delays if items are stuck in customs Or for items being delayed because of things like bad weather or postal strikes these things are out of my control .
If the wrong address is given by the buyer I will refund (or resend if buyer pays shipping costs) if and when the items are returned to me as undelivered please check your address is the correct one.
.I cannot refund if items are not delivered because a buyer refuses to pay duties or taxes but if the item comes back to me as undelivered I will refund the cost of item but not shipping.
I will replace items that arrive damaged after I receive proof of damage that could be item being returned or in some cases a photo of damage this must be done within 3 days of receiving the item.
when returning items from outside UK please mark customs forms clearly as merchandise being returned to original seller for refund. If not items might be stopped at customs and fees charged which is 20% + a £8 fee if this is charged because wrong information was put on returned items by the buyer the coast will be deducted from the refund.
Any parcels arriving damaged or with something missing must be reported within 5 days so it can be reported to the postal service buyers might be required to sign a legal document confirming what was missing or damaged and please either keep damaged packaging or take good clear photos of it.
