Welcome to my shop, Helen Gibson Designer.

I hope you have enjoyed looking through my hand made items.
Please contact me if you are not happy with your purchase.

I accept returns and exchanges on all items EXCEPT SHOES which have been ESPECIALLY CUSTOM MADE for you. Please order your shoes sizes carefully. Message me to help if necessary. Here is my conversion chart. Please note : I am in the UK so all my shoes are UK sizes.

Mens UK 14 = US 15 = EU 48
Mens UK 13 = US 14 = EU 47

Mens UK 11 = US 12 = EU 45
Mens UK 10 = US 11 = EU 44
Mens UK 9 = US 10 = EU 43
Mens UK 8 = US 9 = EU 42
Mens UK 7 = US 8 = EU 41

Please note: Shoes are all good size wise, so please order your normal shoe size.
(If however my normal supplier is out of stock of a particular womens high top shoe, and I have to buy through my old supplier, I will size-up the shoe as these womens high tops come up small.)

Order up for children's shoes any way, especially if they are a Christmas/Birthday gift, as their feet are still growing. This applies for high and low tops.
