About

A love of greyhounds and creativity combined!

HoundMade Designs was born out of a love for greyhounds - we adopted our first from an animal shelter in 1994 - and a love for anything creative.

I went to the huge greyhound gathering known as 'Greyhounds Reach the Beach' in Delaware, USA, and discovered all the pretty and unusual things that they had there for greyhounds and their people. I came home and began making my own designs inspired by what I had seen there, and people began commenting on them and saying I should sell them.

Then I became involved with the adoption of ex-racing greyhounds. Things snowballed, as they do, and now I'm the main fundraiser for Brambleberry Greyhounds RGT. I organise Meet & Greets, do boot sales, street collections and stands at shows etc. And £1 per sale at HMD goes to Brambleberry.

HoundMade Designs contributes more than just the £1 per sale, though, because unless I were able to sell some of my work, I wouldn't be able to fund new materials. This way, I am also able to donate items to charity auctions like the Miss Nellie Fund which raises money for the research team at Ohio State University where they are working very hard to find a cause and a cure for osteosarcoma in these beautiful dogs.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 24, 2011
Welcome to my Etsy shop!

My aim is to produce interesting and unusual hand-crafted items for you and your hounds.

Please ask questions if you have them, and I will answer you honestly and as fully as I can, and as quickly as I can.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Refunds will be made if the item does not match the description, or if it is faulty.

If something breaks with ordinary use within six months, I'll repair it, or if that's not possible, refund the purchase price.

If something breaks after six months of ordinary use, I may be able to repair it for you, free of charge. Shipping costs for returns in this case will be your responsibility.

'Breakaway' type tag collars, which are intended to break for safety reasons, can usually be repaired, free of charge.

I will always get proof of posting from the Post Office. Occasionally, items do get lost or damaged in the post, so if purchasing a unique item, you might like to insure the package. Convo me, and I will get a quote and let you know the new shipping cost before proceeding.

Please read descriptions carefully before buying, and be aware that different computer monitors can display colours a little differently, but I will always do my best to resolve problems and keep you - my customer - happy!
Payment
I require payment within three days of purchase. Paypal only, please. If this is difficult, convo me!
Shipping
Shipping will be by first class UK post, or standard airmail if you live outside Europe, unless you request a 'signed for' or insured packet.

I aim to ship stock items within 2 working days, but custom pieces may take a little longer.

You are responsible for any customs charges or local taxes if you are an international customer, and also for ensuring that you are permitted to import what you buy.

I like to re-use 'as new' packaging materials when possible. Please let me know if you prefer new packaging.
Additional policies and FAQs
n the event that an item is shipped outside the European Union, please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and import charges that may be incurred, and also for making sure it's legal to import any purchase item.

I am happy to accept custom items. Please convo me with details of your requirements, and I will get back to you to discuss plans, pricing and time frame.
