About

I love creating things for others to enjoy. I can't wait to send you your very own Delainie Irreplaceables item!

I've been crafting since I was a little kiddo. My mom taught me most of what I know, the rest is self-taught. I love things that are a little eccentric (wonderfully-weird I like to think!), and I also love things with clean simple lines.

I love to recycle materials and reconstruct them into something so much more enjoyable! I will always state if the materials used are recycled. All recycled items are cleaned thoroughly before using and are in good condition.

I'm often told that I'm a Jill of All Trades. :) I pride myself on making quality items at reasonable prices. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about my items! I sell many items locally, so if…

I sell many items locally, so if you see something you like in my 'SOLD' items, I may just have one that isn't listed here, never hurts to ask!

SHIPPING INFORMATION
I ship most items Priority Mail. Some of my smaller items are shipped First Class. I live next door to the post office and they have a fancy Automated Postal Carrier that I can use 24 hrs. a day. Isn't that lovely? I certainly think so. I ship the same day you order! APC only lets me ship domestic, so if you're international I'll have to wait till they open and talk to an actual human being for a change. :)

I prefer to ship in bubble mailers or USPS Tyvek envelopes for most items. (Obviously not for the breakables!) All of my items are also protected in a ziploc bag. I don't mess with fancy packaging. What's inside is what you really want anyway, right?

I am currently updating all my shipping prices to reflect international costs as well as US shipping. If you are interested in an item that has not yet been updated, please message me for a shipping quote.

**DOMESTIC SHIPPING- I've been shipping most things recently using Priority Mail so my shipping has been updated to reflect this $4.80 flat rate cost.

**INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING- I gladly ship internationally! I ship USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate International as often as possible.


RETURN POLICY
If there is any problem with your item please contact me immediately through email or etsy convos. I do accept returns in unused/unworn condition within 90 days of purchase. Return shipping is your responsibility. Refunds will be given through paypal within 1 week of me receiving the item.

CUSTOM ORDERS
I do accept custom orders. I do not accept custom orders on all items. Please check out my sold items to see what else I have had to offer! Typically, a small deposit is required when you place your order, the remainder to be paid when the item is finished.

SIZING/MEASUREMENTS
I've tried to make sizing as easy as possible. I suggest measuring a garment you have of similar fabric that fits and comparing the sizing I list. Many of my pants and shirts can be shortened free of charge.

TRADING
I do consider trades! I do not consider trades on my Ninja Pants or my Locker-hooked Rugs. If you are interested in a trade, don't be afraid to ask!! Simply convo me, I'm a nice girl :)

**ATTENTION SELLERS! If I buy from you, feel free to recycle a mailer for my item instead of using a new one**

OTHER FAQs:
What is Delainie Irreplaceables?
Aside from being a reeeeally long name, Delainie Irreplaceables is the mix of goods I offer locally (in Kalamazoo, MI) and here on Etsy. I search high and low for my fabrics, so many times I have a one-time-only run of certain colors and prints. So get em while you can! DI is born from my addiction to handmade and my inability to hold still. I like comfortable, well fitting clothes that are easy to move in and easy to care for. I like hats big enough to not smash my hair. I like purses big enough to put all my junk in with a strap long enough to sling across my body so I don't have to actually carry it. Life is just too short to be uncomfortable!

How do you come up with your designs?
I don't use patterns (except for the ones I've drafted myself) and some of my methods are unconventional. I spend most of the day (mainly at my day job) daydreaming about what I can make when I get home. Sometimes I don't make it that far and end up making something from whatever I have laying around. For example - my Allegheny Extras Purse- made from a clothesline! I don't go a day without making something!

What's up with your Ninja Pants? Are your ankles clausterphobic?
Why yes... they are. Once upon a time, I was forced to wear tapered leg jeans that were always too short. I was a fashion catastrophe. Now that I'm an adult with sewing ability, I refuse to constrict the space my ankles crave. I haven't made a pair of non-wide leg pants ever. My ankles thank me. And my Mom laughs at me.

And I thank you for reading all this!
