About

Passionately reinventing rescued fabrics to make beautiful things!

My mother introduced me to the wonders of fabric. She made many of my clothes when I was young and I loved to accompany her to seek out the patterns and textures to create my next outfit! I love to touch and feel the fabrics I'm going to reinvent and hate that so many used clothes and discarded textiles end up in the land fills, so I rescue fabrics, no longer loved from yard sales, estate sales and thrift stores,

Bags provide the artistic license to reinvent, decorate and embellish with wild abandon! And as a lover of hats and scarves, it seems only natural that these would also be my creations of choice!

My GabbyBags were started as a small bag to hold handmade jewelry when I volunteered as a "bead lady" with an art therapy program in hospitals. I made little bags to put the jewelry in for the patients to give as gifts, including little quotes and messages to add some fun! So every bag I make now has a message on it and is sent to you, packaged in a GabbyBag!

The very nature of Reinvented Threads means that the majority of our items are one-offs - as unique as the people who purchase from us!

    Its about up-cycling rescued clothes and fabrics to make bags, scarves, hats and unique things! Many of our GabbyBags can be used as an eco-friendly alternative to paper wrapping goods. Reinvented Threads' products are made in the USA.

Returns and exchanges
It’s important to us that you have a pleasant shopping experience with Reinvented Threads. If you are unhappy with an order, please contact us within 7 days after it arrives. If you are unhappy with an item, please convo me before posting negative feedback! I would love to have the opportunity to make things right :) We’ll work closely with you on either an exchange or refund.

We gladly accept returns on defective, damaged or items wrongly shipped. If your item was damaged during shipment or the wrong item has been shipped to you, contact us immediately.
Payment
PayPal is our preferred payment method (and credit card via PayPal). Note that you can still pay through PayPal without signing up for a PayPal account.

Standard (in-stock) Items are shipped within 1-3 business days. Custom orders may take a little longer - depending on the level of customization.

Payment is due when you place the order. If you are placing a custom order, payment is due in full at the time you place your order. All sales are final. For custom orders, if you need to cancel, you may be issued a partial refund.
Shipping
Items are shipped via USPS. A tracking number and shipping notification will be emailed upon shipment.

I will ship your item(s) to the address you specify on Etsy. Please double check that your address is correct! If an item is returned to me as undeliverable, I will gladly reship to the correct address with additional postage paid.

Express shipping can also be arranged upon request.

We do ship internationally, however, items shipping outside of the United States can take from 2 weeks to a month to arrive at their destination. I always provide USPS tracking info, but can only track packages while they're still in the US. Once packages leave the US they are, unfortunately, out of my hands.

Sometimes a package can get stuck in customs. I cannot be responsible for these delays.

CUSTOMS FEES - The buyer is responsible for any additional customs fees that may be charged. Please do not ask me to mark packages as a "gift" rather than "merchandise." That is against the law as well as Etsy policies.

We take special care when packing and shipping our items and hope that you are totally delighted when you receive and open up your package!
Additional policies and FAQs
I do take custom orders, if you wish to have a custom order made, please let me know.

Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We are always happy to answer you and will get back to you promptly.

After you receive your order, I would love to hear from you. Let me and other customers know about your experience by leaving a review.....thank you!
