How It All Works.....
We have been contacted by
people who are interested in selling some of their dolls.
Once a Selling price is agreed upon by both the seller and the buyer,
a deposit of 1/2 is required from the Buyer. Once deposit
is made we will have the doll shipped to us at the Seller's expense. We
will then inspect the doll and give it the Dollery Stamp of
Approval. We will send you the results of our inspection
along with images. Once approved by the Buyer, s/he can
pay the balance + shipping or make 2 more equal payments. Once the Buyer has paid in full for the doll, it
will be shipped to the Buyer at the Buyer's expense.
Once the Buyer has approved
the inspection pictures and findings an we have shipped the
doll, there are NO RETURNS ON
SECONDARY MARKET DOLLS. If doll arrives broken a claim will be filed
and Buyer will have to take doll & box to Post Office for
Inspection. Whether claim is paid or not is up to the United
States Postal Service.
Once a price is agreed
upon, the Buyer can pay in full using either their credit card
