Terms and Conditions
A custom slot includes 1 doll OR one Big/Little Sister set to be made to customer’s specification. If you would like to place an order, I do require a £10 deposit per doll which will hold your place in my diary. Please note that until the deposit invoice has been paid in full, other customers will take priority. Deposits are non-refundable. I sell Custom slots on my Facebook page and Etsy market nights as and when I can fit them in.
I will book in your order for the month before you need it for (such as a special occasion or birthday). Or if you would like it as soon as possible, I will book you in for my next available slot. Lead times vary depending on the time of year. I recommend booking a slot in my diary sooner rather than later if you would like a doll for a special occasion as I do get booked up very quickly.
You must select details for your doll and let me know the details via a booking form, email or Facebook PM. Please do not send details via comments on photos or posted on my Facebook wall as it is not guaranteed that I will see it since the notifications do not always come through.
The balance for your order will be due 2-3 weeks before I start work on your order to allow me time to order in fabrics and materials. Work will not commence until the balance has been paid in full. The balance must be paid within 48 hours of receiving the invoice. Failure to pay the invoice on time may result in the cancellation of your order. I work orders in the order I receive payments.
I am a wife and Mother first so this needs to be taken into consideration - however I will try my best to deliver everything on time.
In the event of a fabric becoming unavailable after ordering, a suitable alternative will be sought. I will always contact the customer with further options in the event of this happening.
Note: all items are handmade by me. Products may differ slightly to photographs taken due to differences in screen resolution. All of my dolls are OOAK (one of a kind). They are individual and each doll has their own personality. They are all hand made with a lot of love and attention and any slight imperfections add to their unique personalities.
I have the right to change terms and conditions at any time. This includes price structure.
Ready Made Dolls
I endeavour to hold a monthly market night on my Facebook page depending on the amount of custom orders I have at the time. This is usually held on the last Friday of the month and is advertised on the events tab on my Facebook Page. If the date needs to be postponed for any reason, this will be advertised on my facebook page and on the events tab.
I make several types of dolls which have all been developed from my own patterns. I am happy to take your ideas on board for special orders, however I will have to CE test them first before that particular toy goes on sale.
All of my dolls are approximately 16" tall unless stated. They all have hand embroidered faces and are stuffed with love and hollow fibre filling which complies with BS 5852 SOURCE 2 1988 SCHEDULE 2 PART 1 (Fire & Safety). EN71-3.
I use 100% high quality cotton and 100% wool felt in my dolls.
How to Pay
I accept payment by PayPal. Upon ordering a custom slot, please send me your email address and I will send you an invoice. Please note, you can pay by debit/credit card via the PayPal invoice even if you don't have a PayPal account.
Unfortunately I do not accept cheques. I do not start work on orders until payment has cleared which may delay your order.
