Hand-crafted items to enhance yourself and your home

Hopewell, Virginia | 2 Sales

Announcement    Just back from the Southampton Renaissance Fair in Courtland, VA. D&D Domestic Designs braved gale-force winds, day-long drenching downpours and freezing temps (yes, it even SNOWED the first night!) in order to debut its expanded line of jewelry, lip balms, and uniquely-fragranced lotions and perfumes, as well as its brand-new line of all-natural, preservative-free, doggie and kitty treats. These new items will be listed here shortly so you can check out this new line. Although many of the jewelry items have been created in sets that include earrings, a bracelet and a necklace, pieces can be purchased separately. Discounts will be given if you purchase the complete set.

In the meantime, almost all of the current items in the shop have been MARKED-DOWN (anywhere from 25% - 75%) or are being offered as Add-On products that are FREE if another product is purchased in the same order! See the product listings for complete details (Only one Add-On item per order, so pick your favorite!). Now's the best time to pick up an item you've had your eye on - prices will never be this low again!

As always, if you see something you would like to have in a different color, send me a convo and let me make a custom order for you. Please refer to FAQs for more information on custom orders (50% non-refundable deposit upon ordering, balance due prior to shipment).

    From Hobby to Passion to Business!

    Greetings and Welcome to my Shop! I began crocheting when a friend taught me how to crochet as a teenager. I found it to be a great stress-reliever and enjoyed the sense of accomplishment and pride that I felt when I completed a project. All throughout my life, it was a constant hobby - the only one that endured. After 45+ years and thousands of completed projects, I guess you could say that crocheting for myself and others has become a passion of mine. But it wasn't until I inherited a treasure trove of yarns from a great-aunt that I really contemplated making a profitable business out of my love of crochet. DandDDomesticDesigns is named after two of my kitty boys - tuxedo brothers Domino and Diablo - who are no longer with me, except in spirit. They always appreciated my newly crocheted pieces and claimed them for their own, whenever I would let them get away with it! I make all manner of helpful household items, home décor and personal apparel - in short, "domestic designs" - that I crochet from various yarns and re-purposed textiles. Custom orders are my specialty (50% non-refundable deposit required, balance due prior to shipment), but I do maintain a limited inventory of most items displayed. I provide high quality and quick order turnaround times.

      I have been crocheting for 45+ years - it has become far more than a hobby! After completing 2 full careers, I found myself at loose ends after I retired. When I inherited 25 huge boxes of yarn from a great-aunt, my idea for a new business was born!

    Frequently asked questions
    Custom and personalized orders

    To prepare a custom order, I require a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of the item's price at the time the order is placed. I will send an invoice for the deposit to your email via PayPal and you can choose your payment method there. The balance will be due when I notify you that your item has been completed. I will send a second invoice for the total balance due at that time. I must have your balance paid-in-full before I will ship your item.

    Care instructions

    Care instructions are provided both in the item listings and with your order when it is shipped. I try to make my items out of easy care materials, so that they can be machine washed and dried. If an item requires any type of specialized care, it will be clearly marked and the special care instructions will be provided. I am always available to answer questions about the care of my items.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    Gift wrapping can be provided for a slight additional fee. Just notify me in a Note to Seller at the time of your purchase.

    Sizing details

    Sizing details are provided in the item listings. Most of my items are one size-type items. If an item is available in multiple sizes, you will notice a drop down menu in the listing where you can select the desired size. If you see an item listed that you would like me to make in a particular size, such as a hat modeled on an adult that you would like me to make for a child, send me a convo and we can discuss whether this can be accomplished, pricing details, etc.

    Wholesale availability

    I do not make items for wholesale, at this time.
