How can I obtain replacement Kit instructions? How can I obtain replacement Kit instructions? By far this is the number one question we are asked via email. In order to process a request for duplicate copies of kit instructions first the house kit must still be in production. If you purchased your house kit from mottsminis (and this can be verified) simply email us your request along with your current home address and phone.  If you did not purchase your house kit from mottsminis there is a $20.00 processing fee to send you duplicate instructions. We will drop this down to $10.00 if you have purchased at least $100.00 from mottsminis in the 12 months prior to your request.

No. Unless otherwise specifically stated on the coupon, Coupons must be attached to a written order and sent to us Via Postal Mail. Orders sent in via Fax, Phone or Email will be processed as-is. We do not hold orders for you to send in coupons, or mail out orders on a promise that a coupon is being sent in. If you are in a hurry, just save the coupon for your next mail-in order. If you are ordering from a print catalog and do not have an order form, you can print one out from the Print Order Form Page.

Unfortunately we are not licensed appraisers and can not accept payment to appraise items for others. We can NOT perform this service for you. We recommend that you check the classified ads in a miniature magazine or look in the yellow pages under Appraisal. If you have a collection to sell, please place a classified ad in a magazine or newspaper, we do not purchase collections.

Do you have a toll free customer service phone number. Do you have a toll free customer service line? Unfortunately we do not. We offer large discounts and free shipping. We have considered installing a toll free number for customer service, but we would need to do away with discounts and/or free shipping to do it.

I use AOL, why am I having trouble viewing Mott's Miniatures and Dollhouse Shop web site? I use America On Line why am I having trouble viewing your web site? We used to get messages from AOL users who are having trouble viewing our site. This is a problem with AOL NOT mottsminis. AOL does not have a large enough connection to the internet to support all of its users. Because of this some of our pages on our web site load slow or not at all. All we can tell you is to keep trying.

I use Web T.V., why am I having trouble viewing the Mott's Miniatures and Dollhouse Sho web site? I use Web T.V. why am I having trouble viewing your web site? Previously our site used JAVA which did not work well with WEB T.V. Mostly the WEB T.V. Classic customers. We have since changed the site and no longer use JAVA in the check out process. If you are a WEB T.V. client and are having trouble with our site, please notify us and contact your Web T.V. technical support department.

What scale are the dollhouses and doll house miniatures you sell? What scale are the items you sell? EVERYTHING on our web site and in our printed catalogs is standard 1:12 scale (one-inch, 1"). The only exception is a small selection of 1/2 (half-scale, 1:24) building components such as windows and doors, a few half-scale house kits, and a few Barbie/Fashion scale house kits. We can NOT get furniture or accessories in "half" or "Barbie" scale other than those listed.

Discontinued dollhouses and doll house miniatures. Discontinued Items "I saw an item on your web site that is marked Discontinued and Out of Stock, or No Longer Available. I want to purchase one of them. Can you get me one? Do you have any in stock? Can you tell me where I can find one?"

No, No, and No. Sounds dumb! But we get requests every week for items which are marked Discontinued and Out of Stock on our web site. We have items on our site marked as Closeout, these are items which have been discontinued by the manufacturer that we can no longer get. Once an item is marked Discontinued then it is out of stock and we no longer have any. Generally discontinued items are removed fairly quickly from the web site. But sometimes it takes our web guy a little while to get to it. Please do not attempt to order any items marked as discontinued.

The Mott's Miniatures and Doll House Shop Advantage Savings Program. Advantage Savings Program The mottsminis Doll House Advantage Savings Program is a combination Discount and Rebate program. When you find a house with an Advantage Savings of 15% or more, 5% of the Savings will be sent to you in the form of a Rebate Certificate, the remainder of the Savings will be deducted from your total. Other discounts, coupons or special offers such as free merchandise offers may not be used in combination with the Advantage Savings Program.

Why the next day air did not come on the next day. I requested Next Day Air on my order but the order did not come the next day, why? As is indicated on our Shipping Information page, requesting Next Day or Second Day Air service does NOT guarantee that your order will be delivered in one or two days. That is the number of business days the shipment will spend in transit after we ship the order out. It does not count the time we need in our warehouse to process the order, pull, pack and ship the order. Please check Calculating Shipping Times on our shipping page.

Do you sell wholesale dollhouses and doll house miniatures? Do you sell wholesale? This is something that we are frequently asked. At the present time we sell Retail only. While we only charge sales tax on California purchases, we do not take tax off of California purchases if you have a re-sale license. The state of California would not like us if we did.

Where do you purchase your products. Where do you purchase your products? We have been in the business of selling miniatures since 1949. We do not divulge any information regarding our sources to anyone. If we did we would be out of business.
