I try to keep the inventory on my site up to date, but sometimes items are out of stock. If I am out of stock, I will email you and offer you a substitute, refund, or estimated date of when I can get the item. If you want a special order item, like a quantity or style/size that I don't normally stock, I may require payment in advance.
Orders: I accept payments by credit card/PayPal, money order, cashier's check or personal check. I usually ship 1-2 business days following receipt of payment. Items paid by personal check will be held for 7 - 10 days for check clearing. If you have any questions about your order, please email me at place an order, e-mail me at email@example.com.
Please Note: I am sometimes traveling for various doll shows. 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. I update my inventory after a show, so it is possible that an order placed while I'm away may be out of stock when I get back. If you are planning to attend one of those shows, I am happy to bring orders with me.
Shipping is additional.
If you are concerned about the shipping amount shown on your invoice, please email me before paying and I will look at it. For most orders, the rates below apply.
The shipping amount is automatically calculated by the shopping cart when possible. Occasionally, the order may be too large or can not be shipped safely in a First Class padded envelope, even if that was offered as a choice. I will invoice you for the shipping difference if that happens.
On some orders, you may see "shipping will be calculated later". In this case, I will send you a PayPal invoice for the shipping amount. If you want to know the shipping amount before placing the order, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire before paying.
Please make sure your PayPal shipping address is the correct address, as well as the shipping address on facetsboutique.com. I will usually create the label from facetsboutique.com, but sometimes I have to do it through the PayPal system.
Domestic US shipping: Minimum costs are $8 Priority Mail or $3.75 padded envelope/1st class mail (with delivery confirmation).
I offer lower cost shipping options that are not trackable. If you choose a shipping method that is not trackable, I will not be responsible for lost packages.

First Class Air Mail (non-Canada - no tracking except as noted below*) in a padded envelope $15

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.
These countries offer tracking on First Class and Priority Flat Rate shipping:
These countries seem to have tracking (as of 1/1/2015), although the USPS says they do not:
