About

Because "Victorian dollhouse" was not good enough

I began crafting miniatures after having decided that my own dollhouse needed a change from "just Victorian" to "magical Victorian with vampire tenant" - I play as if I had my dollhouse rented to a very peculiar vampire lady doll.

It was around the time when Harry Potter's books became popular. Many people wanted to have a dollhouse with a "magical" theme, such as could be seen in Diagon Alley - but I did not want someone else's vision. I have never cared for wizards, but I have always loved vampires. So the wheels in my head began turning, and I wondered how would a vampire tenant like his or her residence?

Far from the tattered and untidy Halloween look, my tenant would be sophisticated and with delicate and expensive tastes. My dollhouse started to change, and as I was looking for miniatures that would look well in the new theme, I realized they were not easily found online. So I began crafting my own, hoping they would help other people with inclinations similar to mine.

Most of the pieces I offer have a place in my own dollhouse, and I am always trying to come up with strange and unusual ideas - even though sometimes a more classical miniature finds its way into my shop. Reproduction of real antique papers are my favorite thing, along with apothecary labels. Witchy stuff is also fun, although I prefer a more herbalist take, such as plant-related grimoires or posters.

Hello and welcome!

First of all, thank you so much for stopping by!

Our first goal is that you love, love, LOVE your purchase. Your satisfaction is very important to us.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
We only accept PayPal for all transactions, both national and international.

We would really appreciate if you paid immediately after purchase, but you have 24 hours to complete the payment.

If you are unable to complete the payment in the given time frame, please write to us and let us know why. We will work with you. If you buy without payment and we have not heard from you, we will simply cancel the transaction.

If you happen to change your mind about your purchase, please, do let us know as soon as possible. We will simply cancel the transaction and leave no feedback.
Shipping
We try to ship from Monday to Friday within 24 hours of cleared payment. If the purchase is made on the evening or during the weekend, we will ship the next business day.

We ship with standard Spanish mail, both for domestic and international orders.

Also, we try to recycle as much as possible; when an item needs a box for it to not be damaged in transit, we will use whatever we have around. If you want any special wrapping, please contact us.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS AND CUSTOMS

We use the shipping option "Everywhere else" to cover places like Australia, Japan or China. That's why sometimes is so expensive. If you would like an estimate shipping cost to your particular country, please, just send us a convo, and we'll be able to give you a more accurate price. If you live near a country already listed, it's possible the shipping charges may be lower.

Please, be aware that we do not collect any customs when sending our packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. We have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and we are not responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE TO US CUSTOMERS:
Due to recent problems with suspicious foreign mail, the USPS Customs department is holding all packages and letters to any US address for up to 2 months. Please understand that although we ship your package as soon as payment clears, we cannot know how long it will take to reach you; and once it is sent, we have no control over it, nor any way to track it down to know exactly where it is.

If you are in a hurry, please plan in advance. As stated, your package could take any time between 3 weeks and 2 months to get to you.

Sorry for the troubles, and thank you for your understanding.
Refunds and Exchanges
We do accept returns, but please notice that custom-made orders are not returnable. For customers living in the EU, under new EU law, you have the right to return anything you purchase in a time frame of 14 days since the day you receive your order.

If you are not happy with your purchase, please, contact us within 14 days from date of delivery. We will refund your money when the object of the purchase is delivered again to us. The product must be in unused condition, unbroken and without missing parts. You are responsible for the returning shipping fees.

If the item is damaged or we do not receive it back, we are sorry, but we can't refund your money.

DIGITAL FILES: We do not make refunds on digital files. Sorry! If you have any question at all about the nature of the files, how to use them, etc, feel free to contact us before buying and we'll be happy to help you.
Additional policies and FAQs
ITEMS ARRIVING IN BAD CONDITIONS
If any of the items in your order are broken or in bad condition, please contact us. We will ask for pictures of the damages, and we will return your money or send a replacement item.

CUSTOM ORDERS
Any custom order is welcome! Send us a convo and we will do our best to bring your idea to reality.

RE-SELLING
We have recently noticed that some people have bought miniatures from us and have included them in their own listings for miniature witchy cabinets or dioramas. If you want to do this, we feel honored, but a line in your listing acknowledging those objects as our work would be only fair and greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO WRITE TO US!
Please, feel free to write if you have questions, comments or concerns. We love to hear from our customers!

FEEDBACK
Please, do not use the feedback tool as a means to let us know there is a problem. If you are not satisfied with your shopping experience with us, please, do write to us and let us know why you are upset; we are not telepathic (yet) and we can not know there is a problem if you do not tell us. We will work with you to rectify the situation to the best of our abilities. If you decide to leave unsatified feedback without talking to us first, we will understand that you do not want us to make things right, so we will not contact you.

Suggestions, pictures and customer testimonials are very appreciated.

At this moment, we don't do wholesale, consignment or trades.

We reserve the right to refuse service at our discretion.
