About SnugglensCameraBags

Sales 7,532
On Etsy since 2007


I took early retirement in late 2004 and left the city to spend time in the beautiful mountains of the Ozarks. Soon after, I started making bags on Ebay and have evolved to what you see here today as Snugglens™.

Nothing is outsourced to overseas factories. This is all handmade in the USA in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas.

I do all aspects of the bag making from pattern creation, to the final product. Having made and sold over 30,000 bags online,(last 10 years) I believe I have a handle on what makes a good bag. I never skimp or cut corners. I make the bags to last you a long time. I want you to have the "WOW" when you open a box from me!

We are a small home based business run with family only. We do not outsource one thing. This way we know you are getting a quality product to last for years!! But, that does take our ship times are longer than most sellers since we believe quality first!!

. It's long tiring hours of enjoyment and I hope that shows in the final product. My studio is the whole downstairs of my home with a beautiful mountain view of the western horizon of this Ozark Mountain range. I work in approximately 1800 sq feet of work area.

I retired from the real estate profession having traveled the USA working with resort real estate developers in some of the most beautiful resort areas in the country. So, I've traveled about all I want to.

In 2011 I was diagnosed with cancer. Chemo, radiation and several surgeries later I made it through that with the help of My Lord and Saviour Almighty God. After 3 years cancer free in April of 2014 on my 3 year checkup they said it had come back and was everywhere and gave me 3-5 months. Nothing they could do...I was turning into skin and bones loosing weight so fast no matter what I ate and I've always been "plump,.":))

I went to Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Chicago for a second opinion and I am totally amazed at their facility. Thank the Lord that He showed me that route to go. So, with a second opinion from Cancer Treatment Centers of America I am still here today! Turned out I had lymphoma the second time, which I went through treatments and now on the watch and see for next 3 years, but all reports have been good so far. Praise God!

Update 2015: Alas , yet another turn of events. Undergoing more chemo beginning in June and a surgery, then stem cell transplant. Hanging tough....Thank the Lord for His Strength.

From the Heart of the Ozark Mountains to you! Made with pride in the USA!

Need a good reason to buy handmade goods?? USA MADE?? Copy and paste this link into your internet browser to read USA Today article on Overseas Bangladesh fire recently where workers were locked inside (Slavery? you tell me..if they were being paid a wage and working freely, why lock them in?) and they died in the fire. Probably lots of women and children, that's normal in those factories. Happens all the time! Wal Mart, Sears and Disney and other well known retailers used this factory but are taking the stance to "dist" it , shame on them!:

There's a high price for "CHEAP and FAST " goods! Think about it! Support your handmade vendors here on Etsy when you can.

Thanks for shopping on Etsy. We are a small family operated home based business since 2004. We produce a totally handmade product of HIGH quality.
Our bags are structured and lightweight. You won't get a slouchy sewn up sack with some padding. We take pride in making the very best bag on the market.

We DO NOT outsource our products! Everything is designed and hand made by us in the Ozark Mountains of USA!! Sewn by hand one at a time on industrial sewing machines!! In our smoke free studio which is the full downstairs of our home and is fully dedicated to the manufacture of our Snugglens bags.

. I've been battling cancer for 4 years and learned I have a relapse of lymphoma this time, so I have to begin another regimen of more severe chemo as in patient and then stem cell transplant later this year. So FOR NOW my work time is limited, but it's good therapy on days I feel good. Plus I'm gone a lot. I am having treatments in Chicago so every two weeks I have to fly out and be there about a week. .

Information on custom and other frequently asked questions can be found below. Please review our policies prior to purchase.

$50.00 insurance is included with the priority mail shipping with tracking. Requires no signature for delivery.**** If you want your package insured for the full amount with signature required, please send a message and I will add that by sending an invoice to you for whatever the additional shipping fee will be-- based on purchase price and weight it will vary on each item to different zip codes, so ask for it if you want more insurance.

international transit on priority mail they say 6-10 business days to reach your customs, then it's up to each individual country how fast they deliver. Each country will collect their own taxes and custom/import fees in addition to USA postage. I cannot ship as a gift, so please don't ask me to falsify documents so you won't pay your taxes on the package. :) and, I have no way of knowing what those taxes will be.

FAQ's: Most questions can be found here:

Q: Where can I see your choice of fabrics for the custom straps or bags?

A. You can choose any fabric from any active listing . If the listing is active online then the fabric is available. Exceptions to this would be if I have written in the description that it is the LAST ONE of something, that would mean I am out of the fabric , otherwise, it's available.

Q: I see a fabric I like, can I get it on another strap style ? OR, can this strap /bag be made with "???" fabric, either way, this is the answer:

A. Mostly that can be done with no problem. What you would do is:

1) Find the style strap or bag that you like, no matter the fabric that's on it. Use that to checkout. Remember, some styles have different features, so find the one with the features you want for "style", like ruffles or no ruffes, etc.

2) During the checkout, there is a place to write "notes to seller" in that box you would describe what you want. ***Be specific so I don't have to guess at it .Lack of details causes delays and mistakes, so write it all out clearly.** On the fabric, Copy the link from your browser window and attach it so I can see the one you are wanting OR just attach a photo .

Please note that maybe we have discussed details prior to your purchase, but I need you to **re write it all on the order like described above** so your final decision is noted on the order, so please put it all on the order at checkout. I don't keep emails on file after a few days b/c there are so many-- I have to delete them.

That is how you can custom order.


Q. Do the Snugglens™ camera bags come with the insert?

A. Yes, the Snugglens™ camera bags on this site have a built in insert. It is not removable. You do not have to purchase an insert when buying a camera "bag", . Read each individual listing to see what each bag contains.

iPad sleeves are available only on large hobo and xl boss by request otherwise they won't have one. In most cases to add the iPad sleeve does alter the interior layout so if not sure and you need one, ask for the alteration explanation prior to purchase . I do NOT make laptop bags.

If you will look on my home page on the left side columns you see categories. Definition:

Camera bag inserts:

An insert is just that. An insert. They are padded and compartmentalized to arrange and hold your equipment and protect it inside a purse . They are designed so that when you purchase one you can use it in a bag you already have or take it shopping and find one it fits down inside. The inserts are made to interchange to different bags giving you flexibility to change your bag style. They come in small-medium-large-xl sizes. Some come with a buckle and a padded top for using in a backpack, That's an option if you need it.

Camera bags:

This is a complete bag. There are many styles and sizes to choose from. The camera bags have a built in padded interior. It is not removable.(Each listing will have a descriptive text specific to that bag's size and layout so you can guage what you need.) You don't have to buy any other thing when you buy the Snugglens camera bag. No insert is necessary.

Q. When it says the bag does not come with a strap, what does that mean?

A. That means the camera bag has a shoulder strap, certainly, that's included. What it means is that the listing that says that is for a camera bag only, it does not include a camera strap for your camera, but those can be added separately to your checkout and made to match your bag you want. On my shop home page to view camera straps, click on the section/category "camera straps" on left side column for easier browsing by category.

Some listings are shown with camera straps with them, some are not, so you can customize your order with or without a camera strap.

Q. Can I purchase just the insert so I can use it in a bag I have already?

A. Yes, I those are listed under the category of "inserts" on the left side column of my shop HOME page you will find categories of items for easier searching. camera bag inserts that can be purchased separately. Please note that I will change fabrics on these for you by request, but I do not make custom "size" inserts, . The inserts do not have a shoulder strap or flap, they are made to go inside a bag you already have, so that's not an option.:((

'Q: Can I checkout using a credit card without having a Paypal account?

A. YES, you sure can. I accept all major credit cards and you don't have to have a Paypal account at all!! Just follow the prompts during the checkout to choose your method of payment.

Q. Do you take major credit cards?

A> Yes, during checkout you will be given that option to do direct checkout using any major credit card without going through paypal. If you have difficulty, just email me direct: mountaingypsy2 [!at]

Q. How does the camera strap attach to the camera?

A. That's a good question . It's better to watch a video so you can see. My straps connect exactly like the ones you have on your factory strap right now. Same mechanisms. You have to make sure you attach your camera strap correctly to your camera, whether it is "my straps" or the one from the camera manufacturer, they work the same and you must connect them correctly. I can't be responsible if you don't connect to your camera correctly, so here is a video in case you are beginning photography and just not sure how to do it, this is helpful:

Always pull on the strap and make sure it is secure before you go ahead and use it. Check it each time you get your camera out. Test it. It only takes a few minutes and it may save your valuable possession. Like I said, either mine or the factory strap, it's all the same connections and it all works the same way. Any of them can slip if you don't do it right, so take the time, you'll be glad you did.:))
Q. Do you have another Etsy shop or are you associated with any other shops on Etsy?

This is an active Etsy shop with different type bags, so check it out.

I also have dormant etsy account names:


Q. Can I cancel my order? I changed my mind or "something else" like my friend already has received another camera bag, yada yada...?

A. There are NO cancellation clauses. Once a sale is made and payment is received, the order starts down the process of being produced with the fabrics being cut at that point and then your order details and fabrics are put in holding bins awaiting it's turn up the line of production to be completed and shipped in the order it was received.

Please read the listing and shop policy page *prior to purchase * b/c I do not cancel sales once they are final. Your bag may have a delayed ship time, but that doesn't mean it hasn't started down the line of production.
