Welcome to Rachel's Fairy Houses!
I believe in creating high quality, one of a kind, original and magical fairy houses. You aren't going to find anything quite like these anywhere out there. The quality, time and attention to detail that are put into my houses result in beautiful one of a kind lighted homes for the Fae, which are sure to bring you many years of magical delight.
I am all for customer service, and if you ever have question or concern, please don't hesitate to email me.I'd love to help!
I also believe in prompt shipping! Items are shipped out as soon as payment is received. If paid with PayPal, then I ship it out that very day so you get your house as soon as possible! (unless of course it is a Sunday or Holiday :) )
Thank you again! I hope that you find a house that delights and enchants you!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal
Returns and exchanges
Houses are insured for the full retail amount. If in the event damage beyond repair occurs during the shipping process, a claim can be filed with UPS, or USPS depending on with shipping service was used. Please notify me immediately if there is such an occurrence, so a claim can be filed right away, as there is a time limit to filing a claim.
I DO NOT accept refunds. Smaller companies don't operate like Wal-Mart. Once I get money, Ire-invest it into my business, and I literally can't afford refunds.
Filing a claim is the only way for you to get your money back should you chose to do so.
Payment
*Forms of payment accepted: PayPal

Payment is accepted through Pay Pal (you can use a credit card through Pay Pal, you do not need a PayPal account). Payment is expected at time of check out. Purchased item/items will be shipped once I am notified of the payment through Pay Pal. If you have problems with Pay Pal, please contact me for help.
If payment is not received with in 3 days of putting an item in your cart, the transaction will be canceled and the item returned to store stock.
Shipping
I have been asked by many,
" Why are your shipping prices so high? "

*I ship mostly through USPS Priority Mail. I try to offer the lowest cost for shipping.However, what might cost $15 to ship to Arizona ( I am in Oregon ) may cost up to $30 to the East Coast.So I must set my prices accordingly to cover those costs. I make every effort to save you money on shipping which is one of the main reasons I switched to using the United States Postal Service instead of UPS.If the amount of shipping for your package is more than $5, I will gladly refund the overages back to you. Priority mail is selected because unlike Parcel Post, which travels by ground and truck, Priority is not handled as much and is rolled on and off planes in a caged rolling cart. Therefore, the potential risk of any damage is lessened. It may be more expensive, but it insures a greater safety margin. Plus it gets to you faster!
* I insure each item.
* Items are professionally packaged.
*.I try to be fair in what I ask for shipping prices and do not pad my prices.
* I loose a little, sometimes up to $10 when shipped across country and make even when shipped more locally.
* My products are fragile with many, many, items inside. I cannot risk your dissatisfaction. It is very important to me that your purchase arrive in perfect condition. I want you to be happy with your purchase in every way. In order for this to be accomplished, the following above mentioned steps have to be taken to assure the protection of the fairy houses during the shipping process.
* All pieces are insured.


**** PLEASE READ: A NOTE ON SHIPPING COSTS ****
Please note that the shipping cost is the highest price for shipping via UPS across the continental Untied States. In the event that cost of shipping is less than the paid amount, I will gladly refund the overages, as is the case for any and all my houses.

Thank You,

Rachel
