CHRISTMAS IS LOVE is a shop of distinctive heirloom-quality stockings that are meticulously and lovingly handmade from vintage and antique textiles and special new fabrics. My stockings are timeless, classic, traditional designs in a wide range of fabrics and styles to suit different décors and styles.

All orders are very carefully packed and shipped within one business day of purchase. Stockings with bows are packed with special care to preserve the bow and shipped in a box that is perfect for storing them.

What can I say about Grandma Moses that hasn't been said before? A true artistic genius that continuously brings us joy, beauty, and everlasting memories. What can I say about Christmas Is Love that hasn't been said before? Well, I can say that Barbara makes the most beautiful stockings I have ever seen, and I have been collecting for over forty years. The detail, design and execution are impeccable. Their beauty evidence to anyone that can discern real art from mediocrity. Bravo, and thank you for transforming a seasonal ritual, and elevating it to new heights. The art of the Christmas stocking officially began with Christmas Is Love. A fan forever.

Welcome to my shop of holiday treasures! All of my creations are individually handmade personally by me from only the finest quality vintage and antique American and European textiles and with meticulous attention to the design and construction of each and every one. In addition to offering the highest quality items, I am committed to providing the best possible customer service for every purchase.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I accept payment only through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card or direct bank transfer. I do not accept eCheck payments or direct credit card payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.
Shipping
All orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Insurance is required on orders over $100. I use Etsy's new calculated shipping tool, so shipping cost for one stocking is now more accurate than it was with a flat charge. However, the calculated shipping tool does not always calculate combined shipping for multiple items correctly. If you purchase multiple items, shipping charges may be higher than actual cost. I always refund overcharges through Paypal as soon as items are shipped, which is within 1 business day for ready-to-ship items.

I ship ONLY to Paypal addresses. If you wish to ship to an address different than your standard Paypal address, you MUST enter that address IN PAYPAL during the checkout process. By Paypal rules, I cannot ship to a different address that is provided only on an Etsy order form.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not accept returns or give refunds unless an item is not as described or there is another valid concern or issue with the item itself. If that occurs, I will be happy to remedy whatever the concern may be. To return an item, the buyer must contact me within 3 days of receipt. No refunds will be made for items that are returned without contacting me.
Additional policies and FAQs
My prices are the same for everyone and are not negotiable. The price of a stocking is based on the cost of materials, selling fees and costs, and the time it takes to make, for which I make less than half of the minimum hourly wage. I do not add in a cushion for negotiating discounts. The materials cost, selling fees, and time for making and selling a stocking are the same no matter how many stockings a buyer purchases, so the cost for each stocking is the same whether someone buys 1 stocking or 10 stockings. Like every other Etsy artisan, I make very little on my creations. Please respect my work and do not ask for discounts, wholesale prices, or free stockings.
