Love it!. Couldn't be happier. It is the perfect shape. My mum had one in the 70's that was similar so it brought back happy memories. Thank you.

A++++ great items, received them fast... makes me a happy etsyer
Welcome to my shop. I'm glad you are interested in my shop policies.
Every item in my shop is personally handcrafted by me to my exacting standards.
I use only high quality fabrics and findings.
Many of the fabrics I use are designer fabrics in 100% cotton. I do use some nondesigner fabrics when I think they are particularly attractive. I do occasionally use some cotton blends for various reasons, such as strength, durability, structure, etc. I put the fabric content in each item description, so you will always know exactly what you are getting.
Another favorite fabric is recycled wool. Our wardrobes contain far less of this warm, comfortable and luxurious fabric than they did a few decades ago. Recycling this beautiful natural fabric is not only kind to the planet it reminds me of the heritage, authenticity, and quality of classic wool patterns. This is my recycling process: first I disassemble the item being recycled. Then I wash and dry the pieces to assure that your item is clean and sanitary. This also softens and thickens the wool fabric and tightens the weave, enhancing the fiber’s natural moisture resistance and padding qualities. I try to create unique designs by incorporating some of the recycled item’s interesting details in the new item.
The interfacings I use are primarily polyester, and the fusible ones do use adhesives. If any of these contents are a problem for you, I can make a custom bag for you that will meet your needs. Just convo me.
Because each item in my store is handcrafted, no two are exactly alike. Measurements may vary a bit, but will not be significantly different from what is stated in the item description. Print placement will vary from item to item. I strive to arrange each pattern in an attractive layout.
All products are made by me in the United States, in my smoke free studio.
Custom orders are always welcome. If you see a bag you like, but want it in a dfferent fabric; or if you see a fabric you like, but want it in a different bag, I will be happy to do that for you. You can see many of the fabrics I have available here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dragondesigns/ (cut and paste the address into your browser.)
If you want, you can basically design your own purse. Just convo me, I will make a bag larger or smaller, add or delete hardware, adjust straps, make different straps, add a zipper or extra pockets, and try to satisy your different requests. Convo me with your requirements, and I will create a quote for you. Prices for some more commonly requested customizations are:
Add zipper closure, $9.00
Adjustable messenger strap, $6.00
Interior zipper pocket, $6.00
Many of the smaller items in the shop, especially the pouches make very nice bridesmaids' gifts. You can special order multiples of the same item for your whole bridal party.
My goal is to make every customer a happy customer. I will work with you to create just the item you want.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept credit or debit card payments through Etsy direct payment or Paypal. With both payment methods, you can pay securely with any major credit/debit card. I never see your card number or other financial information.
Most items in the shop will be shipped within 3 days from the day your payment is received and cleared.
A few items in the shop are special orders that need to be made up when you purchase them. Shipment for these items will be about 2 weeks from the day your payment is received and cleared.
Please be sure to check the shipment information in each item description, especially if you want something that can be shipped right away.
Custom orders will usually be shipped about 2 weeks from the day your payment is received and cleared.
YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS
Please be sure that your address is correctly stated in your Paypal account. If there is a conflict between your address listed in Etsy and your address listed in Paypal, I ship to the address in your Paypal account.
if your purchase is a gift that you want sent to the recipient, please tell me in the note to seller area of your order. If you want a note included, please tell me what it should say.
Most handbag orders to the United States are shipped by United States Post Office Priority Mail. Smaller items are shipped by First Class mail. If you prefer a different shipping method, let me know in the note to seller area of your order, and I will try to ship per your request if at all possible.
I deliver your package to the post office securely wrapped and in good condition. After that, I have no control, so I cannot guarantee that your package will arrive on time and in good condition. So far, I have not had any problems with the post office delivery, but if you are concerned, you can purchase insurance for your shipment. Let me know if you want insurance for your shipment in the note to seller portion of your order. I will get a quote and bill you through Paypal.
Shipping prices quoted for all locations outside of the United States are for United States First Class International Mail. Insurance and tracking services are not available for First Class International Mail.
United States Priority Mail does provide tracking and limited insurance at a substantially higher price. If you are interested in International Priority Mail shipping, please convo me before ordering, and I will get you a quote.
I want my shipping charges to be fair and reasonable for both you and me. I try to estimate the cost of postage and packing supplies as close to actual as I can, based on past experience.
