Announcement   ATTENTION BUYERS: Starting March 29, I’ll be reducing my shop activity for a week or so due to a medical matter. I’ll be completing orders with the help of my husband, but shipments may take a day or two longer than my usual one day turnaround time. Please feel free to browse and buy with the assurance that shipments and messages will be lovingly processed a day or two longer than usual.


SPECIAL PROMO - BUY ONE LEATHER WRAP BRACELET, AND GET ONE FREE, (OF EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE). PURCHASE 2, AND I'LL REFUND the PURCHASE PRICE OF THE SECOND BRACELET after checkout.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Welcome friends - where the most valuable thing in my shop is you! Please contact me if you see something you like, but prefer in a different color or fabric - a purse with more or fewer pockets, longer or shorter straps, or a particular fabric flower that you'd like in another fabric or color.

All of my bags are of my own design, and while you can purchase less expensive purses elsewhere, please know that all the material in my fabric handbags are made with quality materials. I have high workmanship standards that includes taking extra steps to reinforce pockets, installing my magnetic snaps firmly, and so forth.

You will see that some of my purses are sewn in batik fabrics. I use the highest quality quilt shop batik cotton available. Batik fabric is hand printed, and more expensive - and rarely if ever found at a discounted prices. However, in the long run, fine batik stays young for a long time because it resists wrinkles and fading, and wears like iron. A purse made with fine batik will last for years.

Of note, with rare exception, and unless otherwise noted, the fabrics used in my purses and home dec pieces are pre-washed. Due to my own contact allergies, I'm aware there are others who share similar chemical sensitivities.

And, at any given time, I share my home with one or more retired Greyhounds. They are banned from my sewing workroom, but anyone who is highly sensitive to dogs will want to be aware of this when purchasing fabric goods or clothing.

**Sorry, but I'm not accepting custom orders at this time.

Please note that all my items ship internationally.

This is an amazing bag, the level of detail - even on the inside is phenomenal. Pat knocked it out of the park again! Thank you!

About

A work in progress...

I've always loved creating things. Some things were out of necessity for the sake of economy, but I really just love expressing myself with my hands in as many ways possible.

This is an ever evolving adventure, but it has many rewards. My creativity has expanded in all directions, from improving my technique to creating a better product, writing better listings, improving my photography skills, and all phases that being a one- person shop involves.

One concern is the growing crisis facing our earth, and the threat of waste and toxins that are killing her,and I constantly strive to do my small part in changing that. Eventually my goal is to transition to an all eco-friendly shop. My rag rugs and sustainable / eco totes are the first steps. Stay tuned!

Thanks for visiting - please stop by again to see what's new!

I've always loved creating things with my hands. There is such a sense of satisfaction in making beautiful things of quality that bring pleasure to others!

I humbly share my work with those much more gifted than I, and who lead with awesome inspiration.

Thank you again for stopping by!

Payment
Payment is due upon purchase. I strive to ship items within 24 business hours after payment has been received. Unpaid items will be held in my shop's sold section for 24 hours, and unless I hear from you regarding late payment, the item will be relisted, invalidating the sale. Please contact me if you are having trouble with the payment process, and I'll be glad to help.

I accept Paypal payments,and you can also pay with major credit cards even if you aren't a registered Paypal user. Under some circumstances, for US paying customers, I will accept USPS Money Orders. Please contact me prior to sale if you have any payment questions.

**Full, non-refundable payment prior to project commencement is required for custom orders.
Shipping
My policy is to ship within 24 business hours after payment. If you would like your purchase mailed to another address, please contact me immediately upon checkout.

To keep costs down, and with the exception of very fragile or expensive jewelry items, I usually ship small jewelry items wrapped securely in bubble wrap and in a bubble envelope and send by USPS First Class mail. I'll happily upgrade to Priority mail at your request, and in this case, postage will be more.

International rates are based on Australia delivery, and differences, (overpayments), to other countries will be rounded up to the next dollar, and will be refunded.

I ship all my packages by USPS Mail, and generally my listings will state the shipping method, (First Class versus Priority). If you prefer a different shipping method, I'll be more than happy to accommodate you, but please contact me prior to purchasing or **immediately** upon checkout, because I ship very quickly.

Please note that International shipping times can take longer for delivery, This is especially the case for USPS First Class Mail, which can take weeks if not months, especially to the UK.

First Class mail is more affordable, but not insurable or traceable as is USPS Priority Mail. Please take this into consideration when selecting shipping method..

*I ship worldwide, but because International packages to Russia, Latvia, and other eastern EU parcels must be taken to the Post Office in person, I need to charge more for the extra steps and expense required for mailing to those locales . If you wish a package to ship to these locales, please contact me prior to buying to arrange for the extra postage. I apologize for this unavoidable inconvenience and expense.

USPS Taxes and custom fees / duties or other charges that may be imposed by the receiving country are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Unless otherwise stated, I use sterling silver, vermeil, gold filled, or carat gold for all ear wire/hangers, metal spacers and beads, and all bead components are secured with wrapped wires in sterling silver or vermeil. For this reason, my jewelry items should last for a very long time.

If, for any reason, you aren't satisfied with your purchase, please contact me immediately, and before leaving negative feedback, and I'll do everything I can to solve the problem. Your satisfaction is my top priority!

Items must be received by me within 14 days of contact to qualify for an exchange or refund. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer.

Refunds and exchanges will be issued when the item is received by me in its original, unused condition. The shipping fee will not be refunded. Exchanges will be shipped once the original item is received.

I will NOT refund shipping costs for parcels returned to me as "unclamined" by buyer. The cost of the purchased item will be refunded and will be re-listed only if it's in the original condition.

Many people don't like to purchase hats that have been on a human head. For this reason, my hats have not been modeled on humans or worn prior to sale. Therefore, once a hat is sold, I cannot accept returns.
Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS:

I do accept custom orders, but please understand that because of the extra time required for communication and for locating and purchasing special materials, (the cost of material and time obtaining them), the final price will be more than a ready-to- ship item in my shop. The benefit is that the buyer will get a special, one-of-a-kind item made especially for them.

Also note that if special materials are required, (that I don’t have in stock), I generally cannot predict a precise expense for a custom item until the project is completed. Sometimes a particular material is harder to find, requiring time and/or mileage to locate, and the cost is unknown at the outset. Also, if the requested item requires extra labor, that will figure into the final price.

Due to the time, sometimes "travel" investment, and the uniqueness of custom orders, I require a non-refundable deposit for the entire cost of the work before the project is started.
