Colour Information

Although every effort has been made regarding colour correctness, please be aware that product colours may differ from those on screen.  This is because every computer monitor can be set to different levels of colour, brightness and contrast.

Making a Purchase:

There are currently 3 ways in which you can place an order and make payment:

By on-line shopping cart:

Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalog, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Check Out Now" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.  If you do not already have an account you will still need to click on CUSTOMER LOGIN - there is an option under this for those who don't have an account.   If you experience any difficulties you can, if you prefer, email us with your order and we will send you a paypal invoice in return.  It appears that some customers in the United States are having difficulty in placing orders via the website - if you are experiencing difficulties please contact us by email with your order and we will send you an invoice in return.  Apologies to those who are experiencing problems - we are looking into the problem.

Bank Cheque Payments (UK Customers Only):

Alternatively you can send in your written order and pay by cheque.  However, I can only accept cheques and postal orders which are drawn on a British Bank in                   £ Sterling. If you wish to pay by cheque please send your order and payment to:

Tiny Treasures by Pat Alston

98 Stafford Road, Shirley,

Southampton, Hampshire

SO15 5ED

(cheques should be made payable to P Alston)

By email and paypal

Alternatively, you can email me with your order and in return I will send you a paypal invoice in return.  

Postage and Packing Rates:

For UK Customers: £4.30

For European Customers: £5.50

For Rest of the World - Zone 1: £7.10 

For Rest of the World - Zone 2 (Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Japan): £9.00

The postage and packing rates are worked out for an average package weight.  If the actual postage rates are significantly higher or lower then we reserve the right to amend the postage rates accordingly.  You will always be contacted prior to the amendment to confirm whether you wish to continue with your purchase.  Of course you are always welcome to email me first prior to placing an order to confirm postal rates - especially recommended if you intend to purchase more than one doll. 

If you want the item sent with insurance, with tracking or by another method then please let me know before making payment as these will, unfortunately, incur extra charges.  In this instance all orders placed by European and RoW customers will require that I send a paypal invoice directly to you.  Please DO NOT use the shopping cart facility.

Despatch of Orders:

Yet again the Post Office has made significant changes to it's postal rates.  So please note the following:

All items will be posted in the UK by First Class post and by Airmail for outside the UK. I always obtain proof of posting.  Should a parcel go missing in the post I will happily forward the proof of posting note to you so that you can make a claim against the Post Office.  However, will you please note that the normal postal service now only insures packages up to £20.00.  If your order is greater than this amount you may wish to consider additional insurance.  If this is the case please email me prior to placing your order as it will incur extra charges.

Stock is normally despatched within 2 - 14 working days from receipt of order. If items are out of stock we will keep it on back order unless you advise otherwise, or in the adverse case that it is end of line, you will be refunded.

Return Policy:

I always aim to give you complete satisfaction, however, in the unlikely event that you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase please return all items in their original condition and packaging within 14 days.  However, please note that patterns cannot be returned or refunded, should you have any problems please contact me.

Unless the items were sent out incorrectly the buyers are responsible for the return postage and packing costs.

If an item is damaged in the post you must return the items with the original packaging within 7 days.
