About Us - Kirsten James Handbags are handmade by Kirsten James Designs, LLC. All bag designs are by Kirsten James.

Our Products - Kirsten James Handbags are handmade in the USA. Here at Kirsten James Handbags, we pride ourselves in our quality and craftsmanship. Our products are made with the finest cotton quilting fabric made by the most popular fabric designers. We use green products when available. Custom orders are bags that are pre-designed by Kirsten James only. I do not take custom requests for the re-design of a bag. You can customize your fabric only - not the bag design (i.e. dimensions of bag and pockets).

If you are new to Etsy, you will need to create an account to purchase one of our fabulous bags. It's free and only takes a second. If you need help, this guide will walk you through the steps of making a purchase:

How to purchase a bag:
How to use Etsy
In order to make a purchase through Etsy, you must sign up for an account, which is free, and easy … and, it’s only a one time thing. (Once you register, you’re good to go for all future purchases from any shop on Etsy). Registration only requires a valid email address. You’ll register for an account, and Etsy will immediately send a confirmation to your e-mail address. Simply confirm receipt of the e-mail and then you’re set to go.
How to pay at Etsy
Making a purchase on Etsy is a 2 step process:

#1 – select an item to purchase and submit your order.

#2 – Continue with the payment process through Pay Pal (no PayPal account needed).

After you select an item and submit your order, you then need to make payment. Etsy shops mainly handle payment through PayPal, which accepts major credit cards. You do not have to have a PayPal account to use your credit card. Simply select the PayPal/Credit Card button, and it will walk you through the simple process. Please make payment directly after you place your order or at least within 24 hours.

Gift Certificates:
A gift certificate is good for the amount purchased towards a Kirsten James Handbag.

How to redeem your gift certificate:

For pre-made bags - Type "gift certificate" and the total amount of the gift certificate into the *message to seller* box at the time of purchase. Choose "other" as payment. You will then wait for a revised invoice from me. If the total of bags purchased is less than the gift card amount, you will receive store credit. If the total of bags purchased is over gift certificate amount, you will be sent a revised invoice for the difference.

For custom bags - To use your gift certificate on a custom bag (any bag seen on my website, but with their fabric) send me a convo thru etsy and I will help walk you thru the process of customizing your bag. You will start by choosing any one of the bags and your favorite fabrics from my website. I will then set up a custom listing for you to redeem your gift certificate. Once the fabric arrives the final custom designed product will be ready to ship within 2-4 weeks.

* gift certificates are only valid in my etsy shop and are only valid for one year after the date of purchase

* gift certificates are non-refundable
Pre-made bags are ready to ship. Custom orders take 2-4 weeks to ship.

All bags are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, unless requested otherwise.

Because shipping costs vary according to which state it is shipped to, shipping has been set to the most expensive rate for each bag - however, I will refund you if the amount that is overcharged is significantly different.
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds or exchanges on custom ordered bags.

Be sure to check the dimensions of a bag before you buy it!! If the bag is too small or too big once you receive it, I will only exchange the bag for another one that is already made in my shop or I will refund your money. I do not do exchanges on custom orders.

I will exchange non custom orders if they are returned within 3 days of receipt. You are responsible for paying for shipping on a returned or exchanged bag. There is also a 10% re-listing fee for any returned bag.

No refunds on any soiled or damaged returned/exchanged bags!
