I love my bag! It's so unique and so many people have been complementing me and asking where I got it. And it's 100% vegan!!!

About

Ella Frances Designs in Memphis and Maine

I live in the great city of Memphis, Tennessee, in the winter, and often spend my summers in Maine and New Hampshire. I have been sewing since the age of thirteen using my mother's Singer treadle machine. I am now a grandmother of two adorable girls who help me make my design decisions for my children's collection. I made my own wedding dress, my daughter's wedding dress, my grandchildren's Christening and May Day dresses with oodles of handsewn lace inserts, and many, many other outfits over the years. Over the last few years, I have focused almost exclusively on making women and children's totes and purses. I thoroughly enjoy choosing fabric for the design I envision, but the real joy comes from seeing it come together. Every item I make is handmade by me - no factories, no 'associates.' I use the finest fabric, leather, and hardware; all are sewn with heavy duty thread; stress points are repeatedly stitched; I hope you find my designs as satisfying as it is for me to create them for you.

USPS failures are not the fault of EFD or a reflection on the level of dedication to customers. Priority mail packages are now insured; see www.usps.com for more info.

Failure to use correct mailing address: all packages are shipped with the address you list on Etsy, NOT PayPal. EFD ships everything through Etsy, unless otherwise specified. EFD is not responsible for items shipped to incorrect addresses.
Additional policies and FAQs
Etsy now allows for expedited shipping. I will need to create a custom listing for this so send me a note if you want overnight or 2-day shipping. So far I have had good luck with Priority Shipping from the USPS.
