From parents to children

I started my shop in 2009, when I thought it might be a good idea opening a shop online to sell the dollhouse miniatures I started making some years before.
This hobby and love for dollhouse miniatures, which has now become a full-time work for me, comes from my parents, because since I was a little child, they used to create little foods and things for the shops they bought in flea markets. They also made cakes and pastries for my Barbies and other dolls.
When we discovered Fimo polymer clay, we started working for real and we soon discovered the whole world of dollhouse miniaturism, its fairs and exhibitions and all its secrets.
I'm really proud of myself and what I have accomplished and I now my father, who passed away in 2011, would be proud of me too, because he always supported me and helped me achieving my goals and creating my brand MiniAcquoline.
He also taught me how to build wooden tables, wooden boards and little displays so that now almost everything you see in my shop is handmade by me.
My mother has taught me how to use paper to build cute little bags and boxes and how to create stylish miniatures and tables. I owe them most of my talent and other talents.
I now work at home with my mother and I like creating tables with typical italian foods and dishes, or Halloween/Christmas/Easter themed tables. I love working on custom orders, so I always like to get them and hear from my customers from all around the world.
MiniAcquoline means "little delicious things that make your mouth water", and I hope my miniature food does.

MiniAcquoline's Food Miniatures

Are you looking for some food miniatures? You're in the right place!
I sell exactly what you need:

▪ 1:12 scale miniatures (for dollhouses collectors)
1:12 means that 1 inch/cm (in miniature) = 12 inch/cm (in reality)

▪ Sizes and measures (of tables, boards, plates and so on ...) are always specified in the description under the item sold.

▪ I always try to do my best with my miniatures and always care about the high quality of my work. Every detail is thought and realized with carefulness and ability.

▪ I always use REGISTERED TRACKED MAIL to ship your items, so you'll be able to follow the package's transit.
Please notice, unexpected delays in delivery times for USA can happen due to ISC or Customs.

▪ These are my shop policies, if you have questions or for any problem please contact me to arrange things and sort them out together :)

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
▪ I pack everything carefully, anyway If you open the package and the item is broken, please contact me: I'll ask you to send me a picture of the broken item and then return it, and I'll make you and send you a new one.

▪ I do not offer refund for returned item or canceling a purchase once the item is shipped or the production has started, so please be sure when you're placing an order.
I'm only accepting PAYPAL for now, for all customers.

▪ If payment is not received within 48 hours, I will send a message to you through email or Etsy Conversation. If there is no response within 7 days, the order will be canceled for lack of payment.
If you have particular questions or problems, let me know.

▪ The item will be shipped after a completion of confirmed PayPal payment received
▪ I ship via Posta Prioritaria Italiana (Italian Tracked Priority Mail).
I use Tracked Priority Air Mail for international orders.

Since I usually choose the best, quickest and safest shipping specifically for each item, shipping methods may change from order to order, but I usually use REGISTERED TRACKED MAIL, so I'll give you the tracking number after I ship your package, so that you'll be able to follow your item's transit.

▪ The item will be shipped after a completion of confirmed PayPal payment received

▪ I ship within 1-3 working days

Using tracked mail, the shipping cost is a bit high.
Shipping items to America using tracked mail usually costs me from 7.30 to 11.00 €, from 7.00 to 9.00 € to Europe and about 5 € in Italy.
If you think the shipping price is too high, contact me and send me a message and we'll try to arrange it.

(can change due to bad weather conditions or holidays)

The delivery time indicated down here is still approximately right. Delivery time can change due to Customs or unexpected delays.

USA: 10 to 20 days (delivery time can change due to delays in ISC or Customs)
Europe: 7 to 10 days
Italy: 3 to 7 days
International: 15 to 20 days

▪ International delivery times will vary a lot (1 to 3 weeks) from where you live, so please consider that the item you request will be shipped from Italy.
Please remember that once I ship the item, I am not responsible for delivery time anymore. I can always show proof that items have been shipped out and hence nor I nor Poste Italian will be responsible for packages lost outside of Italy, unless you've requested for a specific tracking upgrade/insurance.


Please convo me if your order has not arrived after a month for USA and International customers, 20 days for European customers and 10 days for Italian customers, and we will try to sort things out. If your package does not arrive after a reasonable amount of time, we will discuss the possibility of a refund or a replacement.

▪ I will ship the item to the address indicated by etsy, unless other specified, so check your address before purchasing.
Additional policies and FAQs
▪ Custom orders are welcome: I usually request 50% deposit payment of the final price to start with the item and the rest 50% when the item is finished. For any question, please contact me.
