Five Star Rating! I would like to REMIND my lovely buyers in land that this is an antique doll. If you want to buy a perfect doll, please buy a new one. Being over 100 years old, some wear and damage is to be expected. WE make every effort to list all significant flaws in our color-coded description section. Please read this carefully! I have recently been very disappointed with buyers who suffer buyer's remorse after purchasing a used antique item and then, being too shy to return it, they hit me with poor ratings on the Star system, even though they give me positive response. Unfortunately has devised a new rating system that ignores good response and magnifies petty complaints. This adversely affects my business and credibility and the rate I must pay . The buyer should be aware that this is an sale and as a seller, I am not setting the price. Since my doll is starting at $.99, it is, YOU, the buyer who determines the value of this item, not the seller. So if you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me to return your item and I will be happy to give you a full refund (excluding shipping). Also, note the shipping price before offerding so that you will not be disappointed in the rising cost of shipping! PLEASE DO NOT GIVE ME NEGATIVE STAR RATINGS! ---NOTE: Thank you, thank you, thank you! To all of my loyal customers! Thanks to your great ratings, I have made it to Top Rated Dealer! You are the best buyers on ! I LOVE YOU ALL
