WE SHIP TO: Due to high shipping costs and difficulties shipping oversees, we are only shipping to the continental United States at this time.
SHIPPING: Items shipped to locations in the continental United States are shipped via USPS Priority mail and require a street address for shipment--no exceptions. Doll Avenue has limited our shipping options to USPS mail to assure our customers have the least problems receiving their orders. Once we receive your order and confirm your payment we will notify you by email that your shipment is on its way!
SHIPPING/HANDLING COSTS: Shipping charges will be calculated during the checkout process based on the following order totals. USPS Priority shipping includes insurance and delivery confirmation. *Most jewelry items and doll outfits can ship for even less via first class in a padded envelope. For items shipped this way, we will refund the difference in shipping if the amount you paid exceeds our costs.
PLEASE NOTE: Since our shipping is calculated on price and this isn't always an accurate estimate of the charges, we will issue a partial refundto our customers for shipping charges if there is a difference of $5.00 or more between the calculated shipping and the actual price of our shipping/handling. This often is the case when a customer purchases an expensive vintage doll, but the actual shipping cost is much less.
$5.95 for orders up to $40 $9.50 for orders $40.01 to $60 $12.50 for orders $60.01 to $125 $15.00 for orders $125.01 to $250 $18.00 for all orders over $250
SHIPPING WITHIN CA: $7.50 for orders up to $100 $8.95 for orders $100.01 to $250 $10.50 for orders $250.01 to $350 $12.50 for all orders over $350
SALES TAX:Sales tax of 9.00% will be charged for every order delivered to a California address.
SHIPPING PRICE ADJUSTMENT:Since some vintage dolls are priced at the highest shipping quote and due the fact that shipping costs vary from state to state, we will gladly consider issuing a partial refund if the actual shipping costs turns out to be more than $5.00 difference.
LOSS/DAMAGE: We take pride in packaging all items carefully and securely for shipping via USPS Priority Mail, which includes insurance and delivery confirmation. We are not responsible for loss or damage caused by USPS. When your item leaves our shop it is as-described condition. We have no control over a shipment once it is in the hands of the USPS. The CUSTOMER will have to address any insurance claims with USPS per their guidelines, though we will be happy to assist in providing any necessary information needed to file a claim.
We hope you will be happy with your purchase, but will take returns that meet our guidelines below.
