About the Business
We are a small business producing miniatures for dollshouses and miniature collectors. Everything you see on the website is made by Steven (my husband) and myself. We are based in Hertfordshire and sell our products through Dolls House Fairs up and down the Country.
The products on our website are not toys, they are fragile items and are not suitable for young children. We make every effort to ensure that our products are accurately described by both text and photographs. Please note however that some slight differences may occur during the making process, as each piece is produced and individually painted by hand.
By ordering goods, you are agreeing to pay us the full amount for the goods. Our obligation to send the goods to you begins when we receive your payment in full. In some cases goods will be in stock and orders will sent out within 1-5 working days of ordering. However if you are purchasing ceramics, and the item needs to be made then your order will be sent out within 7-21 days of ordering. All furniture items are made to order and the time scale for delivery is between 4-6 weeks from ordering. In exceptional circumstances we may cancel an order and return payment if we have good reason, or if we suspect an order may be fraudulent or otherwise illegal.
If you would like to order for Trade, please contact me to qualify, I will then issue a trade password. I offer a 20% discount. Please note not all items on my website are legible for discount (ie. Furniture, hand modelled Teapots, hand made Majolica, Personalised ware and Teasets.) Delivery of stock will depend on the size of the order, I will email the customer with the expected delivery date.
