About

Recycling & Vintage & Jewelry all under one roof. Too Much to make Not enough hrs in a day.

The shop started with my purses. I love to take things apart and remake it as it never was before. A friend lost one shoe out the car window. One night over a bottle of wine and a bet she threw the shoe at me and said here bet you can't make something with this! SO I DID
It took a few months to figure out but I did. My very first purse was purchased as a gift for
a Cross Dressing Stand Up Comedian. I was so honoured. I was thrilled.

Friends tell me all the time if they see something they see what it is but if I look at it but I see it as something completely different. I've always been this way.
At ten yrs old I cut a slip off and then I took a pr of white undies and poured koolaid on them to make it a different color to make a 2 pc bathing suit. I was hooked from that point on according to my parents. Even though I wrecked a good slip and spilled koolaid all over the place I was hooked.
My father still hasn't forgiven me for taking one of his saw horses to school and making it into a buffalo with paper mache. I got an A for that one but trouble with dad for years!

I will make earrings out of anything. It's what got me through a bout of pneumonia. I remade earrings that I already had or found. Etsy became my outlet to the rest of the wide wide world.

Thank you for visiting my shop.
I offer my one of a kind all recycled shoe purses as well as a vintage section and I am destashing some of the twenty bins of fabric I happen to own. I call it collecting but my husband calls it hoarding. Remember the one with the most fabric wins! I work hard at this game! :)

I ship to where ever you are. Just remember it's coming from Canada and can be held at the border by customs and that can lead to delays at times. But generally my delivery times are great.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I take pay pal
Shipping
I try to ship out immediately within one to two days. There are times I am away and this could be a few days. I will let you know as soon as I am able to if I'm not able to get it into the mail right away.

I do ship around the world. So please be absolutely sure that Etsy has your updated and correct address. If an item is sent out to a wrong address it's the responsibility of the buyer to replace and not the seller in this instance.

All taxes and brokerage fees are the buyer's responsibility. Your country may have different taxes or other charges. In this case it is up to you to cover.

It is illegal for a seller to mark all shipping labels as gift. I do mark all shipping labels as a transaction.

I take great pride in recycling as well as using recycled materials to ship all of my items. I have my shipping costs set with Canada Post's on line quotes. There are occasions when a difference in what is charged and what the actual price ends up, In this instance I do and will refund and let you know I have done so.

I send most items by regular mail to help you keep the shipping cost as low as possible. This is unless you want your item faster. In this case please contact me before hand so that I can get you the upgraded cost of shipping.
If you would like to add insurance to your purchase please contact me before hand so that I can amend the shipping cost for you, These upgrades are the responsibility of the buyer.
Shipping to Canada and Mainland US can take 7 to 18 days to arrive. Things like extreme weather can have an impact on delivery times.
This also goes for international shipping times as well. It can take 6 to 9 weeks to arrive.
It is unfortunate that once in a while an items doesn't arrive. Because of the variances in international shipping times we can't consider a package being lost for at least 8 weeks.
If you would like tracking on your package please let me know before purchasing. This is a little costly upgrade with Canada Post. This cost is added to your purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try very hard to describe everything the best I can. I show all the pictures I am allowed to. If I find any flaws or something noteworthy I describe and show this a much as possible. Since my items are vintage fabrics or vintage clothing and collectables they are not easily replaceable.
I want my buyers to be happy and as long as we have a strong communication between us things can be worked out.

I will work on the 7 days after receiving the purchase to let me know if there is a problem or not. Please let me know as soon as possible once you receive it. In this case if you want a refund then it's up to you to return the item and once I receive it back then a refund or replacement will be made. Return shipping is up to the buyer.

I am more than willing to work it out with you. Being fair and honest is something I strive for.

However if we are doing a custom order this is nonreturnable or refundable.

I'm quite approachable and chatty so please feel free to contact me with questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
I make each purse individually. NO two are ever the same.That would be nearly impossible. I may use the same fabric on another shoe but as individual as you are!. I don't always use the second shoe of a pair at the same time. So you can be sure it's as unique as I can possibly make it.

All the shoes get a good bath and do not have a stinky feet smell when your purse is made! Be aware that these are used shoes and fabrics. I use clothing and belts and all recycled materials in making these purses. Every shoe and belts or straps and fabric all get a good spray of disinfectant as well.
There is a little bit of me and a great deal of pride in each 'Purse N Boots' creation.
