Welcome Home” – This is  my artistic desire to design and create visually pleasing settings in 1:6 scale, for collectors of fashion dolls, toy companies, doll magazines, and miniature aficionados. 

You will find my work in Fashion Doll Quarterly Magazine, where I am a regular contributor. I have  been featured in American Miniaturist magazine as well as Dolls and a feature article in Haute Doll Magazine. I also occasionally contribute work to Integrity Toys for their line of dolls – Poppy Parker, Fashion Royalty, Nu Face, etc. 

My miniature interpretation of Joan Holloway’s apartment, won 1st prize in 2010 for Mattel’s – “Mad Men”  photo contest, which celebrated their line of  Mad Men character dolls. I have  designed and built 1:6 scale replicas of  classic television and movie sets. My designs are known world-wide for their artistic. intrinsic value.  My portfolio includes sets that are now housed in doll museums as well as promotional ads for toy companies and most recently, store window displays for  jewelry stores and designer boutiques.   You can also find me on the web at : www.maryannroy.com, as well as several doll boards.

 Inquiries for special projects, such as movies, toy company ads, and  store displays are considered on a project by project basis. I am always interested in trying something new! 

It is my passion to add another dimension to your doll collecting. Make them more entertaining, exciting and pleasing to look at by incorporating a living world all their own. “Welcome Home’ is the way to do this.  If you would like to be part of the adventure, contact me to be placed on my First to Know List or inquire at:

 I hope you enjoy the ride  with me.

“Add a little LIFE to your display !”

Best,

SHIPPING POLICIES AND INSURANCE CLAIMS

UPDATED : 2-20-2013  and 4-15-14

All packages are shipped through the U.S. Post Office.  Most packages within the USA are shipped parcel post with a label/tracking #, and are packed safely and with care.    If you want your package insured, you must request this. All shipping charges, including insurance, are the responsibility of the buyer.

* Shipping costs are estimated via USPS.Com and to the best of my ability prior to the item shipping.  At the present time, I do not add costs for packaging materials nor my time to package and ship.  I no longer refund shipping overages unless the costs exceed $5.00 per package.

 Once the package leaves my hands, I have no authority or control over it.

I no longer submit insurance claims. If you purchased insurance and your package is damaged in shipping, it is the buyers responsibility to file the claim and provide the necessary information to have the claim resolved.   I can assist with repairs on my own work, however, any and all repair costs will be the buyers responsibility.

If you did not purchase insurance, and your item is damaged in shipping, these repair costs will also be the buyers responsibility.

Shipping out of the USA –

I will only ship Priority International with a Registered or Tracking Number. All costs for shipping are the buyers responsibility.   I do not know all countries customs or policies.  Do not ask me to falsify custom forms.   Again, once the package leaves my hands, I have no control over it.

I will look for the most efficient way to ship your packages, however, it will be whatever is the safest /legal and best way to protect both Myself, and You the customer.

Unfortunately I did not succed in getting your new two pieces apartment: is there a possibility to get it? If not how can I know about your new creations and timings so that I can be on time for buying?
