About

It All Started in the Eighth Grade

I have been sewing since I was about 12 years old when I took a sewing class in the eighth grade. However, I didn't start making my own designs until I was in college. A roommate had given me a really awesome little bag from her native Iran and I loved it so much that I carried it everywhere. After I wore the thing out, I copied the design and made myself a similar one, though not quite as cool!

When my two daughters were old enough to appreciate things like handbags and purses, I started making my own designs for them. Each time I made something new, I would improve my skill. My daughters, no doubt, will always remember me saying of my latest creation, "this is some of my best work!"

I generally like to work with natural fibers, preferring to make my bags from cotton, silk, linen or hemp. Because I'm not a fan of making the same thing twice, I'm unlikely to become much of a production worker. I tend to do my best work when coming up with a new design or making plans for using different fabric on an old one.

I rarely buy new materials for my handbags, but prefer repurposing or just buying fabric that is vintage. Whenever possible, I purchase someone's leftover fabric scraps, or even thread, at garage sales or thrift stores. If I have to buy beads, I try to buy locally and I also like to support the many talented artisans on Etsy.

CedarDog Designs is your source for one-of-a-kind handmade PURSES and BAGS, including Concealed Carry Gun Purses!

Most of my handmade items are repurposed from articles of clothing or fabric remnants I've found at yard sales and thrift stores. Whenever possible, I purchase all my materials (including zippers, buttons, thread, etc) from these sources rather than buy them new (I love to recycle!). I also purchase from other Etsy sellers. Whether they are messenger bags for women, hobo bags, burlap tote bags, market bags or concealed carry handbags, every handmade item is unique, each designed and personally made by me.

I hope you will make CedarDog Designs your place to go for quality handmade purses and bags. As for me, I promise to do my best to give you GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Payment
I accept PayPal, Credit Card or Money Orders. In rare circumstances I will accept a personal check, but will need to wait until it clears before I ship your item, which could result in a delay of several days.
Shipping
CedarDog Designs ships INTERNATIONALLY! International shipments are made through United States Postal Service (USPS) First Class International.

Domestic (US) shipments are made through USPS Parcel Post with Delivery Confirmation (tracking) and should take 2 to 8 days for delivery.

Barring hurricane force winds, hip-high snow drifts or other unforeseen determents, I will ship no later than two business days following receipt of payment.

Please contact me if you wish to pay the extra expense to have your package insured. Also, if you desire to purchase multiple items from my shop, I may be able to offer you a DISCOUNT on SHIPPING*. Just convo me and I'll see what I can do.

I reimburse shipping overpayment, which I determine as follows: I round UP from the actual cost of shipment and reimburse anything paid above that (if the difference is $1 or more). For example: You pay me $13 to ship your item. However, it only costs $9.25 to ship. I round up from $9.25 and get $10. Therefore, your reimbursement amount is $3.

* Well over half my customers receive some kind of shipping reimbursement. Whenever possible, I do try to ship Priority (flat rate) if it's cheaper.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE:

-Import duties, taxes and customs charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
-Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
-These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight or shipping company or when you pick the item up and should not be considered additional shipping costs.

Here is a link which will give you the approximate additional costs you may expect to pay (you will need to copy and paste the link into your browser):

Refunds and Exchanges
My goal is for you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase(s) and will refund your money for ANY reason. All I ask is that you notify me within TWO WEEKS of receiving your item, and ship the item back to me (at your expense) in its original condition. Once I receive the item, I will gladly refund the PURCHASE PRICE ONLY (not shipping).

Please see shipping policy above for refund of shipping overpayment.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please do not hesitate to communicate with me regarding ANY problem with your purchase. I will do my best to make things right!
