About

A LavenderDilly.

A LavenderDilly Miniatures is my creative outlet. I am a miniature artist and I make decorative home wares in miniature, both my own original designs and reproductions of vintage and modern classics for ceramic pieces. Everything here I have made from scratch or made over in some way.

For the ceramics, I use a sealed decalling process. Many hours are spent preparing and enhancing images to make them suited for small scale use. I endeavour to create original arrangements of designs to present aethetically pleasing and proportionally accurate final pieces. One simple teacup can have many hours of design work behind it.

People have often asked to the meaning of the name, ALavenderDilly. Lavender is of course my family name. Dilly is an aboriginal word for a little bag carried on a belt around the waist that would carry a person's most prized possessions.

    There has always been creativity in my life. Photography, painting, drawing, sewing, embroidery, graphics, wood work........ But miniatures means I can do them all. It should also take less space, in theory anyway!!

WELCOME
♥♥ Welcome to my Etsy Shop!

My name is Carrie Lavender and I live in the beautiful Bellinger Valley, Australia!!

I discovered miniatures quite by accident when I was asked to use my crafty ways to refurbish a dollhouse. Thought I would try selling some of the plates I had made here on Etsy way back in June 2011 and within 24 hrs I had my first sale. I strive to make my miniatures as realistic as possible and especially love achieving an aged worn look. All my items are handmade by me. With my ceramic pieces I will make reproductions of already known designs, make designs using their components or will make completely new designs of my own. The ceramics are all decorated by hand and it can be at times quite a long process but always enjoyable!

I have been featured in the UK Doll's House Magazine Oct 2016 issue. You can find more of my work via my blog: http://alavenderdilly.blogspot.com.au/

Kindest regards and warmest of wishes,
Carrie Lavender ♥♥

Shipping

https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/221935485/tracked-shipping?ref=shop_home_feat_4 ~~

♥♥ I use all recycled materials in my packaging. I use as little plastic as possible. Preferring to wrap individual pieces in non staining white tissue as opposed to individual baggies. ♥♥

~~**SHIPPING TIMES:**~~

♥♥ Mail will be held up during busy periods such as Christmas. A lot of people don't know that events such as the Olympics and especially the British Royal family conducting tours and visits also hold up the mail. Border security is tightened adding more time to mail delivery. Sometimes adding an extra 2 weeks to normal shipping times. Also severe weather conditions will hold up mail delivery, either here in Australia or your country.

~ United States 12-30 days. Some US states appear to take a bit longer. Florida and California especially.
~ Europe, South Africa, South America and Asia 12 - 30 days.
~ Canada also takes a bit more time due to their tighter border control. Usually up to 25 days.
~ Mail sent before Christmas/New Year period expect up to 6 weeks for delivery.
~ All orders purchased in December must go with tracking and will be added during checkout. If you do not want tracking please let me know and understand that delivery can take up to 6 weeks. Too many have abused the 'Christmas Charity Spirit'.

~ MAIL NOT DELIVERED FOR TWO MONTHS IS CONSIDERED LOST.


~~SHIPPING PRICE CATEGORIES FOR SHIPMENTS FOR MOST COUNTRIES.~~

FOR IMPORT VAT AND DUTIES SEE BELOW.

FOR THOSE IN THE EU ESPECIALLY GERMANY AND FRANCE YOU WILL MOST LIKELY NEED TO COLLECT YOU PARCEL FROM YOUR POST OFFICE IF IT HAS NOT BEEN DELIVERED TO YOU. THERE ARE TAXES TO BE PAID.

**************************************************************************************
## IMPORT VAT AND OTHER DUTIES ##

Import VAT and Customs duty is collected by the customs department of the destination country and is the responsibility of the buyer. I do not charge or collect these taxes and duties. The following information is a guide for your convenience.

Import VAT and Customs Duties for residents of EU countries: Import VAT and other duties are charged on VALUE OF MERCHANDISE when the value is greater than €22. VAT is then calculated on total cost including the cost of shipping. Customs Duty is not usually charged if the value of the goods does not exceed €150. Import VAT is collected by Customs authorities and passed on to the EU. It falls under the category of 'Import Duties', and is charged at the same rate as standard VAT payable on all goods purchased within the EU.

♥ To some EU countries, especially France, Germany, Spain, and Italy, I must attach a copy of the invoice for your order to the outside of your package. This ensures that your parcels are not held up through Customs. I cannot declare an amount smaller than the value of the goods and/or send as a gift, it is in violation of international customs regulations. That is - it is ILLEGAL and brings serious fines and penalties to the seller. Please do not ask me to break YOUR countries law, face prosecution and incur more than $2000 in fines.

Excerpt from ETSY SELLERS HANDBOOK, written April 15 2010

"Do not mark your package “gift” if you’re mailing an item you've sold to a customer. Misrepresenting the contents of your shipment is against the law, and it’s really not worth the risk. Check with your country’s postal service to find out exactly what forms you’ll need to attach to your package. Properly filling out these forms is essential to prevent your package from getting held up in customs."

At a glance here is a list of some EU countries and the Import VAT charged on total value of goods, including cost of shipping and insurance:
Denmark – 25%
Germany – 19%
Finland – 23%
Italy – 20%
Belgium – 21%
France – 19.6%
Spain – 21%
Netherlands – 21%

##As an example an order of 9 plates sent to Germany would likely incur an Import VAT of €6.09.

UK - Import VAT and Duties for residents of UNITED KINGDOM: The standard Import VAT rate for importing items into the United Kingdom is 20%. Duty is not charged, but Import VAT may be charged, if either the total value of the goods (not including shipping charges or insurance) does not exceed £135 or the amount of duty payable on any given item, does not exceed £9. Neither duty nor VAT is payable if the total value of the goods (not including shipping charges or insurance) does not exceed £15.

UK BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Any package assessed as being liable for Import VAT or customs duty charges will also incur a ROYAL MAIL HANDLING FEE OF £8. Other EU countries may also have handling fees, it is in the buyer's interest to make themselves aware of their own country's taxes and duties.

For residents of UNITED STATES: Duty is not charged if the value of the imported goods is less than US$200.

## If you wish to avoid customs charges please keep your purchase totals below the limit set by your country's government and taxation authority. Multiple smaller orders may cost less in the long run than one large order. I will not falsify the value on customs forms.

~ Status of your order can be found in 'Your Account' and then 'Purchases'.

Please ensure your address information is current.

♥♥ THERE IS A LOT OF INFORMATION HERE I KNOW BUT IT IS FOR EVERYONE'S BENEFIT SO DO PLEASE READ THEM. ♥♥
Refunds and Exchanges
♥♥ If there is an issue with your order please contact me first.

♥♥ I will REPLACE items broken in transit. Breakages will require a photograph for proof. Once I have proof I will mail out replacements. Please contact me through the Etsy conversation and not to my email address. It may be overlooked there.

♥♥ If you are unhappy with your items, I will refund only after I have received items back in good condition. Cost of postage will not be refunded. Buyer pays for return shipping costs.

♥♥ Items which need to remain flat such as rugs, kits and signs need to be returned in the box I sent them in or similar. If a returned item is damaged due to insufficient support in packaging I will not refund as I can't sell it.

♥♥ I do not offer refunds or replacements on items that are lost in the mail. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST MAIL. BUYER PURCHASES AT OWN RISK. Please purchase tracking if you would like it.

♥♥ I can not offer replacements or refunds on orders older than 40 days. Please open your packages immediately upon receipt to check for any breakages etc, and contact me as soon as possible to arrange for replacement or return.

♥♥ An order, once in the mail, can not be cancelled. Items must be returned and in good condition before I will issue a refund.

♥♥ All orders are photographed as they are packaged.
Additional policies and FAQs
ANSWERS TO MOST COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

****************************************************************************************
LARGE ORDERS, OVER 50+ ITEM WILL TAKE LONGER TO MAKE. PLEASE ALLOW UP TO FOUR WEEKS FOR LARGE ORDERS TO BE MADE. VERY LARGE ORDERS WILL TAKE LONGER AS I WILL NEED TO ORDER MORE BASE STOCK, ALLOW UP TO 6 WEEKS.

MY ITEMS ARE NOT GUARANTEED AS SUITABLE FOR WEARABLE ART OR JEWELRY.

ETSY POLICY ON THIS IS AS FOLLOWS.
"Etsy provides a marketplace for crafters, artists, and collectors to sell their handmade creations, vintage goods, and craft supplies.
Sellers can also use outside manufacturers to help produce their items, provided they submit an outside manufacturing application and it's approved."

I already offer the best price, there are no discounts. To ask for a discount is to assume that I am overcharging. I can assure you I am not.

My workshop is smoke and pet free.

The following link is a good site which converts cm's to inches in fractions rather than decimal.
http://www.metric-conversions.org/length/centimeters-to-inches.htm

~The ceramic items are not all perfectly the same, there will be small variations.

~ Colour technology and settings in the screens of computers, ipads, and smartphones all vary, therefore there may be a slight colour difference between the photograph as viewed on an individual's screen and the item received. I take photographs in good natural light in order to represent the items in the most accurate way possible.

~All of my items are intended for adult collectors only.

~ I too am subject to problems such as held up mail, colds and flu, internet loss, flat car batteries, computer crashes and all the other chaos that comes with life. I am a single parent of two children and they do take priority in my life.

~ I do not respond kindly to abuse, threats of negative feedback or accusations of theft if your parcel hasn't arrived.

~ I reserve the right to refuse individuals who are abusive.

~ It seems curious that so many first time buyers, who buy only one plate or item, then have that item never arrive and come asking for a refund. Their bad luck is a pandemic.

I WILL NOT TOLERATE RUDE AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR IN EMAILS. PLEASE DO NOT SEND MAIL WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD. BEING RUDE AND NOT VERY NICE WILL NOT HELP YOU OR MYSELF.
