Announcement I'm back! Thanks for waiting for me. I learned and did lots of things while I was away. I learned to use power tools and make beautiful things for my home. So, now its time for me to get this shop cranking.

LOVE my new wallet/clutch! It's exactly as described, and was shipped very quickly. Thank you!

I requested a different fabric, and the communication regarding this purchase - and the time it took to custom make the wallet - was fantastic. The wallet is lovely, well-made and designed, and I am going to love using it! Thank you. Others will not be disappointed.
This is what I do to relax and ease my stress!
My name is Mary. I create and sew handbags, wallets, and accessories for my Etsy shop, called Cha Cha Bags. I live in hot and humid Houston, Texas, with my husband and our three grown children. I also, work full time in the corporate world. I dream that one day I will be able to just sew and create beautiful things full time.
I originally started my shop as Texasbeauties, but as of January 2013, I changed my shop name to Cha Cha Bags. At the beginning my shop was a mixture of all sorts of handmade items. After trial and error I decided to just concentrate on selective wallets and handbags. I perfected my skill in designing and constructing my wallets by using the best fabrics and techniques. The best part of sewing my handbags is choosing the fabrics and combining them together. I take great pride in my work and strive to produce a high quality product that my customers can wear with satisfaction.
In the following weeks, I will be introducing a new bag to my collection. This bag will be stylist, simple, and functional. It will be constructed of high quality fabrics made in the USA.
Cha Cha Bags are designed for the women, mother or girl on the go who needs a stylist, simply and functional handbag.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, Shipping Clerk, Janitor, Courier.....Yes Siree Bob! It's Only Me Running This Show.
I love the art of making things by hand. I constantly look for ways to be more connected to those people who also make the things I love. I support small independent businesses who work hard to do what they love and find ourselves akin to the same practice. You will find me in my sewing studio every night designing, and sewing.
Thanks for stopping by and browsing. Feel free to contact me, if you have any questions.

I try to ship items within 24 hours of purchase.
Items under $60 are shipped within the continental United States will be shipped via USPS, First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. The shipping cost does not include insurance; this can be added if you wish. Just contact me before you make your purchase if you would like insurance added in the shipping cost.
Orders over $60 will be shipped USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.
*******INTERNATIONAL ORDERS*************PLEASE READ**************
All international orders are shipped via USPS International Priority Mail. This gives you a tracking number and approx. 7 – 14 days in transit. This is the most reliable international shipping method for the cost. I will email the tracking number upon shipment. If you have not heard from me, please check your junk mail filter or contact me.
I do not refund for lost/unclaimed/undeliverable packages.
I am not responsible for any duty charges you may incur.
I do not refund postage for unclaimed or undeliverable packages. If a package is returned as undeliverable/unclaimed, it is the customer’s responsibility to follow up with the postal carrier.
I do not ship as “gift” because it is illegal and I am the ones who would have to pay the fines. Customs forms are marked in line with postal regulations.
I will no longer ship international packages via First Class Mail. It is unreliable and often takes 3-6 weeks and sometimes it does not arrive at all.
Thanks for understanding.
