We pass along these stories by designing them into functional, modern accessories including clutches, crossbody purses, Dopp kits, totes, duffle bags & tech cases. Our accessories not only positively impact the planet and our economy, but improve the way you live (and we wouldn’t have it any other way).

Love this purse! The merlot color is great - almost looks brown in some lights but with a little bit of purple tone. And I really like that it can be a crossbody or a clutch. I don't own many bags so always look for something unique and this is exactly what I wanted!

About

Every item we create has a story - which one will connect with yours?

Fritz & Fräulein's Mission: We believe in changing the story of how products are made. Conscious production - not mass production. Sustainably handmade in the USA. We start with using beautiful vintage, reclaimed and sustainable materials that each have their own unique history and story to share. We take those materials and design them into high quality, functional goods - right here in New York. Our accessories not only positively impact the planet and our economy, but improve the way you live (and we wouldn't have it any other way).

Our Story: The company was founded in Brooklyn, New York by Stacy Hauger in 2012, born out of her love for all things vintage combined with her personal passion for sustainability and formal training in design. In Stacy's travels, she comes across gorgeous, inspiring vintage and sustainable fabrics, uniforms and various finds that have their own unique history that reminds you of a place, person or time. With every piece, she decides how best to give them new life so their story can evolve and continue with you. Because of the nature of the materials we work with, every piece we create is truly one-of-a-kind with precise attention to detail and quality.

A note from Stacy:
As a consumer, great quality, design, functionality and sustainability have always been priorities for me and are of the utmost importance when I create each of my pieces for you. As I continue to expand my line in the seasons and years to come, these values will always be at the core of my business.

Onto the name...a nod to my German heritage, and great grandfather, Fritz, who lived to be 103. His wisdom and approach to life continues to be a positive and inspiring force in my life as I build Fritz & Fräulein.

My ultimate goal is to pass along a bit of history through these pieces while enriching people’s lives with function and great design. I hope you enjoy these as much as I love discovering and (re)creating them.

    A little bit about me…a nomadic creative, iced coffee addict, raised in small town Illinois who's as much at home in the city as camping in the woods. I love great, functional design, visiting flea markets around the world & my French Bulldog, Tank.

Welcome! Fritz & Fräulein was born out of my love for all things vintage combined with my personal passion for sustainability and formal training in design. In my travels to flea markets around the globe, I come across gorgeous pieces that inspire me and where, oftentimes, their original use has become obsolete. I decide how I can breathe new life into them through functional redesign or simply allow them to be as they are and appreciated again in a new home. Because of the nature of the materials I work with, every piece I create is truly one-of-a-kind with an extreme attention to detail and quality.

Shipping
**IMPORTANT** Starting January 27th, 2013, USPS has instated SIGNIFICANT increases in shipping prices from the US to international countries and moderate increases to domestic shipping. With that being said, unfortunately I've had to increase my shipping prices to reflect the changes. For more information, Etsy has provided details on the increases here: http://www.etsy.com/blog/news/2013/shipping-rates-update-for-sellers/

*PACKAGING: We ship in sturdy packaging (to keep in line with our green mantra we try to use recycled packaging whenever possible). Our #1 priority is to ensure that your items arrive safely and in mint condition, with delivery confirmation included for domestic US orders.

*SHIPPING ADDRESSES: Don't forget to double check your listed mailing address. If your address in your Etsy OR your PayPal profile is incorrect, it is your responsibility to let us know ASAP and we will make sure that your order is shipped to your best and most recent address.

*INSURANCE: Insurance is highly suggested for all items and required for custom and higher priced items. Only items that are insured can be replaced. However, because many pieces are unique, limited or one-of-a-kind, exact replacement of items lost in the mail may not be possible but funds may be put towards another item. Insured items are eligible for refund due to non-delivery or damage by the USPS.

INFO FOR DOMESTIC / US CUSTOMERS:

1) Unless otherwise requested, we ship via USPS Priority, within 5-7 business days of sale, although usually much sooner.

2) We will send you an email with your Delivery Confirmation number when we've shipped your order. Delivery Confirmation is included for all US orders.

3) We are happy to do expedited shipping w/in the US via FedEx, UPS or USPS. Just contact us for pricing.

FedEx/UPS: Overnight before 10am
FedEx/UPS: Overnight after 10am
FedEx/UPS: 2Day shipping
FedEx: Express Saver shipping
USPS Express (Overnight to most areas)

INFO FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:

1) We gladly ship anywhere in the world!

2) International orders are shipped via First Class International (USPS) which at this time, offers no tracking. We cannot be held responsible for packages that are lost once they leave the US. However if you would like an upgrade to Priority or Global International please feel free to inquire about the costs. We will only charge for the actual postage, but be aware that the USPS pricing for items starts at $13.50 USD.

3) Please note: International customers are responsible for any and/or all Customs fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping & purchasing to their respective countries, should they be assessed. Most country's Customs agencies open and/or assess fees to a random selection of packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. We have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and we are not responsible for those charges.

Further to this, please be advised that international purchases will be shipped as "merchandise," and the buyer is responsible for any customs/duties upon arrival. Estimate your Import Duties here:
http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
Please do not make a purchase without understanding your VAT obligations. For any additional information please refer to your local customs agency.
Refunds and Exchanges
Should you request a refund, order cancellation or exchange:

1) Returns, cancellations and/or exchanges are processed on a case-by-case-basis. Because each piece is unique, I can not replace an item lost in the mail. Only insured items are eligible for refund due to non-delivery or damage.

- If your item(s) arrives damaged, we will ask you to take a photograph and return
it to us in the original packing if at all possible. Exchanges on damaged items must
be returned within 7 days of arrival.

2) Custom items are not eligible for exchange.

3) Returns will not be accepted due to customs taxes, fees or duties.

4) If a return or cancellation is approved, the buyer will be responsible for a 15% restocking fee.

5) All shipping fees and postage costs are the responsibility of the customer and will not be refunded.

*Please e-mail me prior to making a purchase if you have any questions regarding a particular item.
Additional policies and FAQs
If there is a particular item or size you're interested in but do not see currently listed, please just let us know and we'll try our best to accommodate your request to create a custom listing for you. **PLEASE NOTE: We do not do custom orders between Nov. 1st and December 31st.

Also, with my frequent antiquing and vintage adventures, please let me know if there is something in particular you're looking for, what your price range is and I will do my best to source this for you.

Specific Policy for our Redesigned Lamps & Lighting:
Being that all our lamps are vintage or antique, prior to use, it is recommended that vintage and antique electric lamps and fixtures be examined by a qualified electrician to ensure they are safe for use. This includes both lighting with vintage original wiring and lighting that has been rewired. When purchasing from Fritz & Fräulein, the buyer is accepting this responsibility and liability of use.

It is strongly recommended that proper wattage bulbs be used at all times. If unsure, a qualified electrician can specify the maximum wattage that can be used for any specific electric item.
