Georgia girl living her dream in Tennessee!

I started my first etsy shop years ago and made duct tape wallets. Since that first endeavor, I've lived a lot of places, worked a lot of jobs and met many amazing people. It all lead to where I am now, living my dream in my home studio, making making things I love!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page! Rest assured that all items in my store are designed and handmade to order by yours truly in my home workshop located in Goodlettsville, TN (just north of Nashville!). This is my passion and I hope that is evident in the product you will receive.

ALL ITEMS ARE MADE TO ORDER. Please allow approx 2 weeks for most bags to ship after placing your order (smaller item usually ship in 1 wk). Please come back often for new items!


Custom orders:
At times, I can take on custom projects at customers' requests.
For any SIZE customization to existing bags, it will start with a base $45 charge for pattern changes. Custom pieces are priced dependent upon labor time, materials, and design, and vary from project to project. WHILE I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO DO CUSTOM ORDERS AND ALTERATIONS TO MY CREATIONS, I KINDLY ASK THAT YOU DO NOT SEND ME PHOTOS OR REQUESTS TO RE-MAKE ANOTHER DESIGNER'S / ETSY SHOP'S BAG OR ITEM. Thank you!

Shipping

All items are made to order. Please allow approx 2 weeks for most bags to ship after placing your order (smaller item usually ship in 1 wk).

METHOD OF SHIPPING: I ship everything via United State Post Office. Goods $50 and more are usually shipped Priority (2-3 days). Items under $50 are shipped First Class (3-5 days). If you would prefer a different carrier such as UPS, FEDEX, etc. please contact me PRIOR to purchasing so I can give you an accurate shipping quote and set up a custom listing for that shipping profile.
If you would like to add insurance or require a signature at delivery, please let me know and I can set up a custom listing for that.

You will be provided with tracking info once shipped. If you need expedited shipping, please contact me before placing your order.

Please buy thoughtfully as all items are made to order. If you would like to see leather swatches, I will send them to you.

Once an item is shipped, it is considered to be delivered. The buyer may purchase additional insurance for their item if desired; please contact me and I will happily make a custom invoice. Otherwise, items lost in the mail after initial shipping are the responsibility of the buyer.

Custom orders usually take approx. 2-3 weeks depending on item.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, PLEASE READ:
We cannot be responsible for lost international packages, as USPS first class international often only provides tracking until the parcel leaves the U.S.
We cannot mark international orders as "Gift" on the customs form or otherwise falsify customs information.
We have no responsibility or information regarding import duties, taxes, customs, etc. that might be charged by the home country of our international customers.
Customs are the responsibility of the purchaser, and are, unfortunately, very often a part of purchasing internationally.

Additional policies and FAQs

Custom orders:
I can take on custom projects at customers' requests.
For any size customization to existing bags, it will start with a base $45 charge for pattern changes. Custom pieces are priced dependent upon labor time, materials, and design, and vary. WHILE I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO DO CUSTOM ORDERS AND ALTERATIONS TO MY CREATIONS, I KINDLY ASK THAT YOU DO NOT SEND ME PHOTOS OR REQUESTS TO RE-MAKE ANOTHER DESIGNER'S / ETSY SHOP'S BAG OR ITEM. Thank you!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about customs clearance - customs laws make the importer (the buyer - you!) responsible for these fees.

Leather Care:
Leather is a natural and organic product.
Each leather item and hide is as unique as you are! Slight differences in color and texture are characteristics of the natural leathers used in Bubo Handmade items. Special treatment is suggested when caring for leather. It is recommended to treat your item with a leather protectant. When not in use, the item should be stored in clean bag in a dry cool place. If necessary, have item cleaned by a leather care professional. For oil-tanned leathers, slight scratches should be able to be 'bent' or rubbed away. Bend and work the scratched area and the leather will lighten and scratch should lessen. Leather color will even itself out over time. Chrome tanned leathers (brighter colors) can be cleaned with warm soapy water.
Always test on an inconspicuous place before applying to entire bag.

Products I like:
-Chamberlain’s leather milk:
They offer an array of products sold by number (No. 1 is a conditioner, No. 2 is a cleaner, etc.). All can be purchased on amazon.com.
-Guardsman Protect & Preserve for Leather is good as well. Can be found on amazon.com

With proper care and a little TLC, your Bubo product should last a lifetime!

Please contact me with any requests, and I will be sure to get back to you whether or not I can accommodate your requests, and move forward with the design process.
We also welcome wholesale orders. Please contact me for further details and information.
