About

You Can Be The Boss of Me

I have been looking for the perfect bag, for like, forever. Seriously. Have you seen my closet?

So I understand about your bag issues. Your bag. It has to hold everything, without looking like you could carry an ocean liner in it. It has to be easy to use and easy to carry. It should cheerfully take daily abuse from you, and never complain or show strain.

Moreover, your bag should say something meaningful about you -- like, "I like to read books"; or "I love science".

About 10 years ago, I decided to stop buying bags that disappoint, and started making my own bags. I (re)learned how to sew, and I gradually got better at making purses, messenger bags and backpacks. When I was good enough to make my own patterns I started publishing tutorials. And when family and friends started asking me to make them purses as gifts, I started my Etsy shop (originally called Artsi Bitsi) in 2008.

These days my bag obsession has evolved beyond construction, and become more about embellishing them with colorful printed designs. I also do a lot of custom orders, so I can make you something that is really original and reflective of your personality.

Welcome -- I think that your accessories should be as interesting, fun and hard-working as you are.

Everything here was designed and put together by me, so if you want something extra special, just ask.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I prefer payment through Paypal. You can use your credit card, money order or cashier's check, but I need to get your payment before I can ship your purchase

Your Paypal purchases enable me to help women entrepreneurs in developing countries. So far I've made 135+ loans, totaling more than $3400. See details at http://www.kiva.org/lender/ArtsiBitsi

SALES TAX -
Ohio residents will be charged 7% on total value of order (including shipping) at checkout.
Shipping
Your item will be tied with a nice ribbon and sent by U.S Post, usually on the next business day. Custom orders take longer (of course). But everyone says that I am very speedy.

Non-U.S. Buyers! I will ship to you. Most of the time you will get your item in 1-2 weeks. Check my listing for rates. You are responsible for whatever taxes your country charges on imports; like customs, duties, tariffs, stamps and such.

Let me know if you want insurance or any other special treatment.
Refunds and Exchanges
Everything you purchase from me was made by me, not a factory. Sometimes variations in color and assembly -- though I try to avoid them -- result.

Please inspect your order when you receive it. If you're not happy, I will fix it for you, or give you a refund.
