The Up-cycled, Recycled, Re-usable, Green Choice in Gift Wrap, Sewing and Vintage.

Our families came to The West back in the days of Wyatt Earp and horse-mounted cavalry soldiers. It was a rugged and difficult life and they learned to make do with whatever they had. They passed that spirit of resourcefulness on to their children and grandchildren. Our mothers adopted that penny-wise approach, particularly when it came to clothing. Everything that could be handed down was and when an article of clothing had been worn for the last time it usually became something else. Used jeans made thick, durable blankets and a worn cotton t-shirt made an excellent mop head.
It is with that tradition of our territorial forefathers that we bring you gift garb bags. We rescue fabric and clothing and re-purpose them into attractive, long-lasting and unique gift bags. We also find and source vintage items including clothing and fabrics for re-sale.
Most of the materials for our bags come from a third-tier channel...Meaning that the thrift shops and discount stores have already gleaned the items they want. We believe that where we source our materials is important because we think it would be irresponsible to turn desirable clothing into gift bags. However, we can give some of those rejected items new life. For example we can take a beautiful skirt with a tear in it, or a jacket with a broken zipper and make the salvageable fabric from these items into excellent gift bags.
Our bags are great for the planet. These gift bags will last for years which means fewer trees cut down for wrapping paper, less natural resources used to produce the paper, and less discarded paper filling our landfills. In addition, many of the fabric items we rescue would have eventually become rags or wound up in landfills.
Our fabrics are carefully chosen, inspected and cleaned and made in a smoke and pet free environment.
We invite you to purchase some of our one-of-a-kind bags and make them a part of your family tradition.

    I love creating with fabric, there are so many colors and textures to work with. My passion is up-cycling, taking fabrics from discarded items and turning them into something useful. I especially love using vintage fabrics.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I will do custom orders with fabric I source or using your fabric. Contact me with details of what you would like and I will let you know if I can do it for you and I will give you an estimate on price and time to ship.

Care instructions

Because all of the bags are from made from second hand fabric sources I cannot tell you for sure exactly how to care for them if they for some reason need to be washed. I will include the fabric content to the best of my knowledge in each listing. Most fabrics can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and most of the fabrics I source can be carefully hand-washed and hung dry.

I clean everything that I use to make the bags. The bags are made in a pet free/smoke free environment, however because I am using recycled materials, I cannot know the complete history of the fabrics. I do not source soiled, smoke smelling or pet hair covered items and I wash the fabrics before use.

For vintage items, refer to the listing for any care instructions.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your items will be carefully shipped, however since my focus is up-cycling and recycling, any additional packaging paper or notes will be from recycled sources, not new. I do not offer gift wrapping since this is technically what I am selling. ;-) but I am willing to wrap a vintage item in one of my fabric gift bags for you if you buy them together.

Sizing details

I will do my best to measure describe and give you the sizes of the bags and vintage items, but because they are all unique and or hand-made, sizes may vary slightly. Thanks for understanding the uniqueness and characteristics of vintage, up-cycled and re-cycled items.

What is your return/refund policy?

Our products are vintage and upcycled and one of a kind, please read all details and shop carefully. I am happy to refund or exchange with a similar item if something unseen happens that was caused by us. The buyer cannot make any changes or alterations to the item in order for a return. Item must be returned in the same condition as when shipped. Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs If the item is not returned in its original condition to include any tags or original packaging, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.

Local Pick Up

If you live close to me and I know you and you want to pick your items up so you do not have to pay shipping, please message me or get a hold of me before putting the listing in your cart and I will reserve the listing for you and change the shipping.

Combined Shipping

If you order multiple listings at the same time please refer to the shipping information listed in the details. I will happily combine shipping and reimburse you any shipping overages.
