I have tried reaching out to the shop owner multiple times by email with no response they took my money for an order back in February I never received any communication that they were unable to fulfill my order until 3 months after I placed my order. They did refund my money finally with no notice or apology for leaving me hanging for over 3 months.

Shipping took way longer than expected. Seller varied between non responsive and slow to respond. Ended up having to lodge a complaint with Paypal and Etsy to get the item. Hang ups in shipping. Ribbon began to unravel almost immediately. Was told she would redo and ship, once she received the bag shipped back to her. Was so frustrated at that point I just cut the ribbon shorter and called it a day. Wouldn't order again.

We have reached out many times in an effort work things out. The problem with the shipping was documented with the tracking information. The complaint filed was immediately dismissed because of that. The ribbon was heat sealed and tested before shipping. Unfortunately any ribbon or fabric can be damaged, snagged, cut etc. Once shipped, it is difficult to know how an item is handled. Having said that, we did immediately offer to make a new bag regardless of how the damage occurred. Several messages were sent with no response. Sad to see the feedback given the effort put forth to make it a positive transaction. Sometimes things go wrong that are out of our hands, but the goal is still to make it a positive experience. Still hoping to hear back.

About

All about GKat Designs!

My name is Michelle and I have a beautiful little girl named after her beautiful grandmother! I never expected to be a new mom and running my own business in my 40's. I have always been a career woman until I lost my job while I was 5 months pregnant. I was blessed with the most beautiful baby girl that has changed my life in ways I never thought possible. Working from home with her during the first few years has been a gift that I will always be thankful for. I treasure each moment!
Making diaper bags blossomed into a full time business. It was never a plan, but when I was always stopped and asked where my bags came from it just grew from there. I not only got to be a new mother, but was given the chance to run my own business thanks to her. She is my inspiration!
It is a lot of hard work with a lot of long days, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have been making tutu totes for almost 5 years! I have made thousands. I love what I do and love creating new products. My hope is that I can put a smile on a child's face, one tote bag at a time!
