About DessertFirstDesigns

Sales 249
On Etsy since 2008

Luscious, colorful, wool felt is what you'll find here. Accessories for the young at heart!

At Dessert First Designs you will find ornaments, tree toppers, pins, necklaces, bag charms and more made by me. My pieces are colorful, irreverent, often made of felt and always fun.

Dessert First Designs' are coveted by those who want something special that you can't buy in a store or is mass produced. Each piece takes a considerable amount of time to make and is curated with a discerning eye. Everything I put up for sale, I truly love. If it doesn't measure up to my standards, I don't sell it.

I was born, raised and still reside in the heart of New York City. Making crafts has been my passion since I was a tiny tot. I first enjoyed the thrill of selling my designs freshly out of college at local boutiques on the Upper West Side and the East Village. Now I balance childcare with craft making and also have a vintage shop on Etsy featuring my other great love, collectibles. Please visit Oldylocks for antiques and vintage housewares, jewelry and more.

Thank you for visiting Dessert First Designs! Can't find what you are looking for? Convo me for custom orders. These items are made sturdily but are not for small children, as some of them have small parts and materials that could come loose and be harmful if swallowed.

If for any reason you are unhappy with your item or purchase, please let me know if I can do anything to resolve/fix it. If you are still unsatisfied, you can send the item back, and I will refund your money (minus shipping).
I prefer payments through paypal. Payments are due within three days of purchase. Custom orders must be paid in advance.
I ship to Paypal address unless you request a different address. All items are shipped first class mail unless buyer requests otherwise. I ship within two days of purchase unless the item is made to order and then I will let you know how long it will take. If you would like to purchase insurance for your package please convo me before checkout and I will add it. Otherwise I use Delivery Confirmation.

I ship internationally and have had really good luck with our shipments abroad! All international shipments will ship via USPS First Class mail which usually takes approximately 7 - 25 days. Every once in a while a package gets held up in customs and can take longer. Please e-mail us if you're concerned.
