The Ashton Drake Galleries - Real company or order clearing house?

Update added by user Apr 07

I honestly suspect that Ashton-Drake is an order clearing house; they are not actually a seller.

Original review posted by user Apr 06

Anyone ever order from Ashton-Drake Galleries? Collectible dolls? Do they always take three days to post your order and never send order confirmation and do they always take 1½ to two months to deliver? I have been shopping online since 1994 and have never encountered such lousy service. When I call them they always say the item is on back-order. And when I ask why back-order status is not displayed when ordering they make the excuse that because 'expedited shipping was not available at time of order that indicates the item is on back-order'..... REALLY? And how is the customer supposed to know that?

As far as their benefits of shopping with them; they fail on all points:
