Cotton purse with handmade candlestick button and intriguing Italian blend yarns. Mostly cotton/synthetic with one super soft wool strand in the strap. Lavender, purple, blue, green. Will hold many models of smartphones. Lined in off-white muslin. (A hand knit bag should always be lined or felted.) Cute handmade ceramic green button with candlestick motif. Soft chaotic fringe. Reinforced seams. Designed, hand knit, hand crocheted and hand sewn by dj runnels. 7 1/2 x 6 inches. 26 1/2" strap. On my shoulder, the bottom of the bag falls at my waist; I'm 5-foot-3. Unless you are allergic to wool, you are unlikely to be bothered by the very small amount of wool in the yarn of this bag.

Frequently asked questions about LifesAnExpedition

We ship within 3-5 business days, using USPS 1st Class mail for packages under 13 oz--and that's most of our hand knit or sewn goods (takes 5-7 days to arrive)... Priority Mail for packages over 13 oz (takes 2-3 days to arrive)...Media Mail for books (1-2 weeks to arrive). These are ESTIMATES; they apply January-November. We have always shipped when we said we would, but there can be USPS delays due to hurricanes, blizzards, holidays...especially in December. To track, log into Paypal, click on Payments Sent, find Life's an Expedition, click on TRACK on the far right. International orders usually ship 1st Class International within 5 business days; your tracking # will come from an Etsy convo. See more on shipping in FAQs below.
Don't panic. The nature of the USPS is to charge more to ship the first pound and gradually less for each additional pound, depending on how far you are from Chicago. So, yes, the cost of shipping gets higher the more single and double skeins of yarn you put in your shopping cart. Generally, if you buy fewer than 16 skeins, there are rebates built in to the price. When you order 16-24 single or double skeins from various listings, we can usually ship the whole shebang for a mere $13.99 within the United States; we calculate and process the rebate AFTER you pay, at the time that we pack your order. (Those "destash yarn lot" listings of 10+ skeins already have discounted shipping. Ditto for yarn cones.)
If you order a number of things, you could get a rebate, depending on what you order, how big the product is, how much the package weighs, whether we offered shipping rates below our actual cost to mail it to you, what your zip code is, how far you are from Chicago, how fragile the product is, how much we have to pay for protective packaging, whether or not it fits in a flat rate box, whether we can put one of your purchases into the same box as something else you ordered without risk of breakage, etc. Lots of variables, eh? That's why we cannot predict combined shipping fees in advance.
Sometimes we include Canada, Australia and/or Europe, but not on every listing and not year-round. (We tend to include Canada in winter because those guys NEED our warmest winter goods.) International buyers are responsible for all customs fees or import taxes. Life's an Expedition is not responsible for fees or delays due to customs or shipping. We use 1st Class Mail when we can to save you money, but the tracking number won't tell you much and a package may take weeks to arrive, especially if it weighs under 4 lbs. Rebates on shipping may be issued on large orders. If your country is not included on a listing, we are not going to add it at your request.
We only accept returns on clothing, as per instructions found in the clothing listings. Follow instructions exactly; we reserve the right to refuse refunds if you don't. If the listing doesn't specify information about returns, read the info carefully and think before ordering, as we do not accept returns on other merchandise. Why? Because no matter how careful you are, it will likely contain fragrance, cigarette smoke or pet hair, even if you're sure it won't. People in our home have severe allergies/asthma and can't handle such things. But if we messed up your order, please send us a calm, polite convo--thru Etsy, not email--within a few days of receipt, without leaving adverse feedback, and we will make things right.
Some people just glance at photos and rush to order. Please don't. Use the ZOOM button under the photo and read the listing carefully. Measure your head before ordering a hat from us; we test for size; there's no such thing as one size fits all. If you are tall or plus-sized, don't expect a scarf or handbag strap to look the same on you as it does on our petite size 10/12 model. If you order something 4" wide, don't be shocked if it's 4" wide. No two people see or define color the same way and--I swear this is true--what you call forest green someone else will call blue-gray. Yarn gauges vary depending on how you knit. Softness is subjective; I've known people who made socks out of wool I deemed too coarse for a rug.
We don't offer wholesale arrangements, but we sometimes have sale or bulk merchandise that you are welcome to resell in a bricks and mortar shop. Do not list our goods on Etsy, though.
We always send a tracking number without you having to ask. But if you misplaced that email, you can easily TRACK YOUR PACKAGE: Log into Paypal, click on PAYMENTS SENT, find Life's an Expedition and click on TRACK on the far right. Don't count on detailed information, because USPS isn't always informative or regularly updated, especially near holidays. EXPECT DELAYS IN DECEMBER. Read the FAQ below this if you are getting impatient. (If you are OUTSIDE the U.S. and your package is small, we sent you a tracking number via Etsy convo, but your package may take weeks or even a month to arrive, especially if it weighs less than 4 pounds.)
It's more likely delayed, not lost. USPS tracking information is not flawless. Your package could be within a day of reaching you without ANY indication of this in the tracking data. However, if the tracking # shows delivery, yet you have not seen the package, ask other residents at your address if they brought in the mail, look in the shrubs around the mailbox, etc. In our experience, when a tracking number shows arrival, it means the package DID arrive but someone forgot to tell you. However, if those inquiries don't pan out, contact your post office and give them the tracking number we gave you. We've shipped over 100,000 packages since 2003 and while many were delayed, I can only think of a few that did not reach their destination.
Sorry. We do not negotiate prices, change listings, add photos, accept alternate payment, change shipping method or break up yarn destashes for you. We ship in the time frame and method stated, but if you order a lot of small merchandise that would ordinarily be shipped first class mail--and your total order exceeds 13 oz.--you are automatically upgraded to USPS Priority Mail.
