Please take a few minutes to read my store policy. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com
The quality of clay is important to me. The clay I carry is very fresh, not exposed to heat or light. Keep in mind, clay is shipped by priority mail and it does not spend much time in ground transit. Any heat exposure will be from the package sitting in the mail cart during the carrier's rounds or sitting in a hot mailbox.
SUMMER CLAY SHIPPING:
During the hot summer months, clay can cure in your mailbox very quickly. When you place an order, I will ship the next day. All clay orders go by priority mail which takes 2-4 days for domestic delivery. International shipping takes a bit longer.
Priority mail packages spends most of its time indoors at a post office or on aircraft and from there, taken to the destination post office for delivery.
If your mailbox faces the full afternoon sun, please do the following.
Plan ahead! You will receive a notice of shipping with a tracking number, track your package so you will know when it is delivered. If you will not be home when your package is delivered, make arrangements for a family member,friend or neighbor to pick up your package ASAP to prevent curing of the clay in your hot mailbox.
This will greatly reduce any accidental curing due to the sun.
The shop can not be held responsible for clay that has cured in a hot mailbox or on a hot porch.
I offer high end items at competitive prices. Manufacturers periodically increase their prices and require their sellers to offer products at the
manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP). Not doing so can cause me to lose that product line.
Other things that can affect a price increase would be shipping increases. We are beginning to see the tariffs have an effect as well as the cost of
labor and oil prices going up, businesses and shipping companies adjust their costs and those costs are passed down to buyers like myself.
Should my website prices increase, this would be the reason.

I am happy to do custom orders on my one of a kind art dolls. Custom orders depend on availability and feasibility. Custom orders
require a 50% deposit. Once the art doll is competed, I will send an invoice for the balance due. Deposits for custom orders are non-refundable.

I primarily use USPS First Class shipping and Flat Rate shipping. I do not charge a handling fee on my packages, only actual shipping rates.
I will only ship to addresses that are on your PayPal account. Please make sure your paypal address information is current. Paypal can use old,
previous addresses which are still on file. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS. EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY WITH ANY CHANGES.
I cannot be held accountable for items which are lost in the mail or returned to the shop because the package is undeliverable. I reinforce all flat rate envelopes as much as possible. All Domestic Priority and Flat Rate shipments have a tracking number and are automatically insured for up to 50.00. Once the package leaves my store, it can be subject to weather delays or any other unforeseeable circumstances. In situations like this, it is necessary to file a claim with the USPS.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Please read
International customers are responsible for any customs fees collected by their postal service for the full value of the contents. If a package is
missing, I will file a claim with the USPS for the full value of the package. I will not reduce the value of purchases. Customs fees are based on the
total value of the contents of the shipment as well as the cost of shipping. International customers should check the fees with their postal service
before making a purchase.
Packages can take up to 4 weeks or longer to arrive depending on the destination and if a package is going by First Class mail or Priority. I strongly recommend Flat Rate Priority International shipping which takes up to 9 business days to 3 weeks to arrive depending on the destination country and customs inspection.
Please note, I cannot view a shopping cart until after it is paid for. If you have any questions on shipping, please email me. Once I receive your order, I will make any adjustments needed.

is safe and secure using PayPal checkout. Paypal does not hold any credit card information.
I cannot see any shopping cart contents until after the order is paid for.
