Up-cycled and Reusable!

Classicpetunia goes one step further in fabric bag production by using almost exclusively up-cycled materials. I use up-cycled fabric for EVERY bag. The materials I use were destined for the land-fill. I do not use clearance items or bolt-ends. This sets me apart from other makers whose bags may be reusable but new materials had to be produced to make what they sell. In full-disclosure: I do have to buy new thread as I run through so much of it and there are times I have to buy cord as I just cannot get my hands on enough good, sturdy material for drawstrings. So why am I doing this? My creative energies were looking for an outlet and starting Classic Petunia Up-cycled Bags happened quite spontaneously as a way to share with others something I believe is important. Gift-giving has taken place for an eternity. As individuals we derive great pleasure in making others happy by giving them meaningful and beautiful gifts. With that as a given it is also disconcerting to see the waste produced by traditional wrapping. It was easy for me to merge my love of sewing (fabric, weaving, embroidery, patchwork and collage) with a penchant for buying secondhand whenever possible. So classicpetunia (a twist on an old nickname) was born. My mission is to breathe new and useful life into what is already out there and in so doing, produce high-quality, long-lasting, reusable and beautiful bags of all kinds. I think once you make the plunge and begin to go paperless you won't' turn back.

Welcome to ClassicPetunia. I feel good about what I do here! You can feel good too, as every purchase you make is an ethical and sustainable choice. Not only are all of my products made from up-cycled materials but all of my items are meant to have no immediate end life. Shopping bags can be used time and time again and laundered as needed. Gifts bags can be used again and again - by you if it's "all in the family" or by the recipient of the gift. Simple changes of ribbons and ties can make a gift bag appropriate for an entirely different season or event. Many gift bags can be mixed and matched to create a special theme so be sure to check the store carefully. Totes are totes. Carry whatever, where ever, then wash and carry on. Creativity reigns and the sky is the limit. Have fun...I sure do! I will also do custom work.

Returns and exchange details
Sales are meant to be final but I will except returns with good reason. The customer pays for all return shipping costs. All items for sale are made from up-cycled, recycled and/or 2nd hand fabrics and materials. All fabric has been machine washed and dried before being re-made. Because of the 2nd hand nature of the fabric [and the run through the washer and dryer] the fabrics used may not necessarily have a "pristine" appearance. Some fabrics are straight from the bolt but purchased in 2nd hand shops, some fabrics are vintage and some are just plain "old"! It is impossible to date much of the fabric and items may have been just about anything before undergoing their current transformation. Ribbon/ties are included with gift bags as needed. But...it is not about the ribbon. I strive to make a good ribbon choice but it is the bag that is for sale. Ribbons and ties are not reflected in the price; I even encourage you to change out any ribbon or tie with something of your own that may better suit your purpose. I have tried to take detailed photos. Please feel free to ask questions before you purchase. I can only offer a refund if I have inadvertently misrepresented an item. If something is not right please contact me and I will try to resolve any issues you may have.
Payment
I accept payment through EtsyPay and Paypal. Please contact me if you have any special requests before you complete the transaction. My goal is to sell you products you appreciate.
Shipping
Items will usually be shipped through the USPS parcel post and shipping time will depend on where you are in the world. I use Etsy's shipping recommendations/calculations that they base on weight, size of the package, and destination. If priority and/or flat rate shipping is less expensive I will use that method but because most of my products are quite lightweight that is typically not the least expensive option. I do not charge a handling fee for products mailed domestically. I do charge $1.00 handling fee for international shipping. I will attempt to ship within 3 days of receipt of payment. I often recycle clean packing materials and items are carefully and thoughtfully packaged but I recommend buying optional shipping insurance on more expensive items. I cannot be responsible if items are damaged and you did not purchase insurance. The cost of insurance is approximately $1.75 for up to $50.00 of coverage.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please ask questions. I would like to make your buying (and my selling) experience a win-win for everyone! I will do custom orders, so feel free to ask about what I might be able to do for you.
