A wonderfully charming and beautifully crafted bag and I'm THRILLED with my purchase! She mailed it fast and it arrived very well packed. Her pieces are so original and what great prices. I will be back for more lovely treasures from this PerFecT Etsy shop. AAAAA+++++

Paypal is preferred, though cheques & money orders are acceptable. For the latter, please allow a processing time of at least one week from the date you send your payment so your payment may be received before shipping.

Payment is due immediately upon ordering, but I aim to be accommodating here, so if you need to make an alternate arrangement, please convo me upon ordering. Items will be automatically restocked within 7 days of ordering unless other arrangements have been made.
I ship once per week. US destinations arrive within 5-14 days, Canada 5-7 days, usually.

Overseas orders are welcome! Please convo to assess your order on an individual basis. Shipping time for these orders takes 2-4 weeks.

Faster shipping is possible if you'd like, just let me know so I can adjust the cost.

If you would like to pay to insure your order over $100, I am happy to do accommodate you, just let me know BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER, so we can adjust the cost. THANKS.
Refunds and Exchanges
Through photos and measurements, I attempt to describe items as accurately as possible, but the computer screen is not always perfect. Please take measurements when possible.

Returns will be accepted in their original packaging and in unused condition if sent back within 7 days of receiving your order.

Shipping & handling charges for returns and exchanges will be the responsibility of the buyer.

Additional policies and FAQs
Woolly Washing Instructions

All of Elsje's deconstructed and new fabrics are carefully to laundered thoroughly before reincarnation. Having said this,


... in cool to luke warm water with a mild detergent, a wool soap or ordinary shampoo works well. For tougher stains, soak your woolies with detergent for a few hours prior to hand-washing to maximize the cleansing process.

Lanolizing instructions will be provided with wool orders. This will help to maintain wool's natural abilities to wick moisture and repel stains, dirt and odors.
