Orders over 13 ounces will be shipped Priority Mail + Insurance

Custom shipping available:
UPS or FedEx (ALL charges will be paid by customer)
(Shipping is determined by weight of package)
Virtual Dollhouse will replace refund broken items only with proof of
breakage, i.e. a photograph of damaged item. Missing items must
have insurance or indemnity to be refunded.
Because of changes in the post office's shipping policy,
insurance/tracking numbers can not be placed on many international package
unless it's shipped Priority Mail or Registered Mail. Not even the flat rate
packages have insurance/tracking attached any more. Therefore, ALL
INTERNATIONAL packages with a value of $50 or more will be shipped either Priority Mail with insurance
(when available) or Registered Mail. Where insurance is not available with Priority Mail,
packages over $200 will be shipped by Express Mail.
Virtual Dollhouse can not afford to be responsible for loss and since
PayPal ALWAYS holds the shipper to be at fault, all international customers
with orders over $50 will have to pay for insurance or Registered mail. I'm very sorry to have to institute this
policy, but it seems that PayPal will not honor a "contract" between
shipper and buyer that says the buyer will assume responsibility for loss/breakage
to get a lower shipping rate. If you don't like this new policy, I suggest
that you complain to PayPal.
PLEASE NOTE: Any package shipped First Class (value $50 or under) Virtual
Dollhouse will replace only for breakage not caused by Customs.
You the customer, assumes all chances of loss. IF I allow
you to ship first class and the package is lost, and you go to PayPal to
get your money back, you will no longer qualify for First Class shipping.

It is the responsibility of you, the
customer, to make sure that Virtual Dollhouse has the correct shipping

address after a move, Virtual Dollhouse will use the address on file. If
the package is returned undeliverable, and you want the package sent to
your new address,

difference is more that $1, you will receive a PayPal refund for the
