Announcement    PLEASE READ, RE CHRISTMAS ORDERING: My shop is a one woman show, so bear this in mind with Christmas coming. The 29th of November is the LAST day to place orders to ship by December 15. I am the sole operator from design, cutting, sewing to packing and shipping. I may need to occasionally temporarily close the shop to fill orders in a timely fashion and right now I have a one to two week wait time. You can pay for expedited shipping upon request via PayPal or here but items are sewn in the order in which they are purchased. Also, during the Coronavirus pandemic USPS is much slower as we all know now, and certainly expect delays to Europe. Within the USA you can always track your package and it is your responsibility as purchaser to follow up with the carrier regarding any delays. For foreign countries, please be sure USA ships to your country. ATM Pakistan does not. I'm truly doing my best. xo take care wear a face covering!!

Meanwhile, stay safe and well. Don't forget: "You have to live spherically - in many directions. Never lose your childhood enthusiasm and things will come your way" - Federico Fellini

Affordable and whimsical tea cozies, coasters and napkins, children's and women's dresses, ascots and pocket scarves and who knows what might pop up? The lights are always on at Bluebell and the Fox!

If you see a fabric in one item but you want it in something else, please just ask, and maybe I can help. For clothing, let me know if you don't see the size you want. All dresses can be made as tops and elasticated skirts and for adults too if you see a child's print you love that too can be made especially for you with a custom order.

The evolution of Bluebell and the Fox

Bluebell and the Fox opened mid November, 2012. I am also a painter, but have sewn since I was a very young girl. I have always loved to make any number of different things. I began selling dresses when I was only fifteen, selling hand over fist Renaissance hippy dresses in a boutique in Carmel that was called The Golden Door. My paternal grandmother taught me to appreciate beauty and peacefulness and gave me a strong aesthetic education. My maternal grandmother was always knitting and embroidering and she taught me how to do these things. I have played with fabrics much of my life. I love making things that evoke childhood and so, a few years ago I began selling things as an alumni at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, where I had taken my degree in painting. I discovered I had a market for the things I am selling here in Etsy. It gives me great joy to bring a little more sweetness to the world during times of distress and upheaval. It is with a kind heart and warm gratitude to have an environment here that fosters creativity and whimsy. So, given that I also have a passion for cooking, it is kind of like soul food for the eyes to offer pretty, delicate, sometimes funny, sometimes poetic and romantic things that take one back in time to a place of innocence and wonder.

I use American, English, Japanese, Australian Aboriginal fabrics and support American made products as much as I can.

Feel free to ask for any kind of custom order and if I am able to oblige I will do my best.

Domestic Insurance is currently $1.75 for orders up to $50. Please contact me about Insurance charges and I can get a price for you.

So make sure you know what your customs limits are before buying anything and that way you won't be surprised by any VAT or surcharges your end.
