Shopping at Dorothy & Theodore couldn’t be easier!  You simply browse through all the beautiful products on display from the various sellers,  choose the ones you want to buy, add them to your Shopping Bag and then checkout just once – regardless of how many different sellers you wish to purchase items from.

How does delivery work?

As all our sellers are unique, each seller sets their own postage charges and these are displayed within the product description for each item.

Do your sellers deliver overseas?

However, some of our sellers our willing to post items overseas so please contact us using our Contact Form or email us at if you would like an item delivered abroad.

How long will delivery take?

The dispatch time for each item is set out in the product description – this is the time it will take the seller to get your item ready to post.  Please remember that many of our products are made to order but if you do need an item dispatched quicker than the quoted dispatch time please contact us using our Contact Form or email us at and we will see if the seller is able to dispatch the item any quicker.
