WE SHIP TO: Due to high shipping costs and difficulties shipping oversees, we are only shipping to the continental United States and Hawaii at this time.  

SHIPPING: Items shipped to locations in the continental United States and Hawaii are shipped via USPS Priority mail and require a street address for shipment--no exceptions. Doll Avenue® has limited our shipping options to USPS Priority, First Class or Ground Advantage 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.  We opt to choose the method of shipping based on our costs. 

SHIPPING/HANDLING COSTS: Important Note: USPS increased their shipping and insurance charges again in 2022.  Shipping charges will be calculated during the checkout process based on the following order totals. USPS Priority or Ground Advantage shipping includes insurance and delivery confirmation. *Most jewelry items and doll outfits can ship for even less via USPS 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.
$9.50 for orders up to $50
$12.50 for orders $50.01 to $100
$15.00 for orders $101 to $200
$18.50 for orders $201 to $350
$24.00 for all orders over $350

SHIPPING WITHIN CA: Due to increases in shipping/insurance costs, I now charge a flat $5.00 for all California orders.    
SHIPPING TO HAWAII:  *Due to air freight, USPS shipping costs are higher than the continental states
$12.50 for orders up to $50
$15.00 for orders $50.01 to $100
$20.00 for orders $100.01 to $300
$25.00 for all orders over $300

SALES TAX: Sales tax will be charged for every order delivered to a California address.

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.

RETURNS: We hope you will be happy with your purchase, but will take returns that meet our guidelines below.

Cancelled Orders
Customers requesting to cancel an order after purchase, but before the item has shipped must contact us via email with a reason for cancellation. PLEASE NOTE: Paypal charges us a transaction fee and it is non-refundable.  Cancelled orders will be refunded to the customer minus our Paypal fee.
