  • Laura Filas

    Artist, Designer, Owner

    Laura Filas is a multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer who is based in a suburb outside of Chicago. Her work is informed by a fascination with the mundane and close observation of the concurrent normalities & idiosyncrasies of the day-to-day.

    BAGGU creates reusable bags for people and the planet in an effort to eliminate single use bags. I've sworn by BAGGU products for organizing and holding just about everything in my life so it felt like a natural next step to design a bag of my own. Bags sustainably made in China and printed in SF.

Returns and exchange details
Unfortunately, I cannot be held responsible for damage that may occur during shipping; this is beyond my control. But, this should not be a problem as items are packaged in such manner to ensure their safe arrival.

If there was a mistake made on my behalf, I would be more than happy to help sort it out. Simply contact me via Etsy or the email mentioned before.

The buyer is responsible for the return shipping fees.
If you are interested in any custom work, you must submit payment before I begin working on your unique project. I do not ship any items out until payment has been successfully processed.
Shipping may differ, depending upon the item purchased; this information can be found with each item. Please contact me if you need your parcel shipped by a certain date. I package items very carefully to best ensure their safe arrival, but I cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred during the delivery process.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to new VAT and tariff code requirements instated by the European Union, I will not be able to make sales to EU buyers totaling any less than $30 USD, as the cost and efforts to ship items will outweigh profits. Additionally, due to the fastidious nature of locating the aforementioned tariff codes for each and every item purchased, shipping times will extend up to 5 business days beyond the estimated shipping time indicated on each product.

Unfortunately, I cannot make any exceptions to this rule and if a sale is made totaling less than $30 USD, I will cancel the order within 1-2 business days and fully refund the purchasing price.

No returns.

If you have any individual questions or concerns about shipping to the EU, please contact me before making your purchase.

Frequently asked questions
How long does shipping take?

I tend to visit the post office once a week (usually on Thursdays or Fridays), so most goods are shipped out within 1-3 days and arrive within 2-3 days after being dropped off at the post with USPS first class. However, if you need to receive something urgently, please contact me before choosing a shipping option and we can likely work something out to make sure you receive your parcel promptly.

How long is the turnaround for custom pieces?

As of October 2021, I am no longer taking commissions for custom portraits as I move Flowers are Rad! into a new phase.

Wholesale availability

Although Etsy Wholesale is now retired, I still accept wholesale orders. If you're interested in buying in bulk or if you'd like to see my linesheet, please contact me via Etsy or the e-mail above.

Why don't you offer free standard shipping?

The truth is that nothing is actually free. When you offer free shipping, you actually tack the cost of shipping onto your regular product price. For example, if an 8x10 print from my shop costs $11 now, I would have to mark it at around $14/$15 to factor in the shipping costs. I like to be as transparent about my business practices as possible with my customers and doing this would not feel right to me. Additionally if I were to offer free shipping on orders of, let's say, $35 or more, it'd be incredibly unfair to those making a purchase under $35, as they'd be paying for shipping twice––once in the hidden fee tacked onto the price of the product(s) and twice when they actually pay for shipping.

Do you run sales/promos? Do you offer free shipping then?

I do run sales and promotions from time to time–about five to six smaller sales events throughout the year and two big ones: Cyber Week and my annual Last Minute Holiday Sale in December. Sometimes during these sales, I offer free domestic shipping that IS actually free for you. The information about any of these sales/promos is always announced via my Instagram and Twitter (@lauralucy_f) and found noted in my shop announcements. If you don't see it there, it means there is no sale. Please do not try using any coupons found on couponing websites; I will not accept those.
