Ordering Information

I try to keep most of my rhinestone jewelry for 15" - 16" fashion dolls in stock and ready to ship, but sometimes I need a few days to make up an order.  If you are ordering for other sizes of dolls, it may take longer to process.  I try to keep most of my wigs, shoes and accessories in stock.  If I am out of stock, I will let you know and try to give you an estimated date for when I will have them again.  In most cases, I do not ask for money in advance for pre-orders of out of stock items, unless it is a special order (like a quantity or style/size that I don't normally stock).

Orders: I accept payments by  money order, cashier's check, personal check, and by credit card via PayPal.  I usually ship on the business day following receipt of payment.  Items paid by personal check will be held for 7 - 10 days for check clearing.  I try to ship PayPal orders immediately, but sometimes need a few days to make up your order. To place an order, e-mail me at applefrien@aol.com.   You can send PayPal payment to me directly or ask me to send you a PayPal invoice.  Please do not send any payment before confirming that I have items in stock.

Please Note:  I am sometimes traveling for various doll shows.  They are usually posted on the main page of my website.  Emails and orders may be delayed around the show dates, as I am packing and unpacking for the trip.  I will do my best to let you know when there might be a delay due to my travel schedule.  If you are planning to attend one of those shows, I am happy to bring orders with me.

Shipping: Shipping is additional.

Domestic US shipping - minimum costs are $7 Priority Mail or $3.25 padded envelope/1st class mail (with delivery confirmation). 

International shipping -

  • First Class Air Mail (Canada - with tracking) in a padded envelope $10

  • First Class Air Mail (non-Canada - no tracking except as noted below*) in a padded envelope $14

  • Priority Mail Flat Rate Small Box (no tracking except as noted below*) is $25 to Canada and $33 to other destinations

  • Priority Mail with tracking starts at $39 - $50 ($32 - $39 to Canada)

  • Express Mail with tracking starts at $54 - $64 ($42 to Canada)

First Class Air Mail is available for items that fit and can be shipped safely in a small padded envelope and weigh under 12 ounces.  Priority Mail Flat Rate is for a small box.  Regular Priority Mail and EMS are for any size box/weight.

Please note: If you choose First Class Air Mail or Priority Mail International Flat Rate, there will be a label number issued and it usually (but not always) shows some scanning in the US.  Once the package leaves the US, there are no further updates to the scanning history to most destinations.  If your postal system is not reliable, you should pay for a shipping option that includes tracking.  First Class and Priority Mail International Flat Rate packages do not have any kind of claim/insurance services.  Although you can track them online, there is no way to follow up if they are lost or damaged in transit.  If you want protection against loss/damage, items need to be sent by Priority Mail or Express Mail and the protection is for the amount insured/declared.
