About

How a Kooky Lady Got Her Craft Back

It all began when I begged mom and dad to buy me my very own sewing machine in grade 7. I made a denim hobo bag in Home Ec. class embroidered with a large name initial. After that project and others, the bug had bit me. Since then I've studied Interior design, Graphic design, Culinary arts and have worked at a bunch of very boring and unsatisfactory jobs. But sewing was something I very much enjoyed and making things was creative and fun.
After a long time of not sewing, maybe 8 yrs, I made myself a tote bag for the beach , adding some decorative embellishments, followed by another bag - a handbag for everyday but adding some drapery trim . Next thing I knew, I was asked to make a bag for this person and that person and I realized ..... hmmmmm, this could be the start of something great. A new beginning for a creative person without a clear future. "Eureka!!". I decided to give it a go and now 12 years later I've made oh, I don't know how many bags (ALOT!) and I absolutely love doing this. I hope this reflects in my work - my love of 'pretty things' - gorgeous, sumptuous fabrics, brilliant colors, fun and unique embellishments such as vintage buttons, beads, sequins, rhinestones and other neat stuff that thrill me to no end. I'm sure I'll be doing this for a while longer and I hope you'll enjoy wearing my bags as much as I do making them. And the name Kooky? I've been told more than a few times that I'm a kooky girl so it seemed only perfect to use the name for my business. After all, the bags reflect my kooky nature.

If you have purchased an item, then I thank you for supporting my shop and making me feel good about what I do!!!

Also, I am a big believer in up cycling/recycling and therefore will reuse envelopes that have been already used, although they will be sufficient for mailing, they may be a bit rough around the edges and maybe marked up a little, but bear in mind that your item will be prettily wrapped in colorful tissue to make up for it.

I live in a SMOKE FREE HOUSEHOLD, so bonus***

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
You can purchase with a credit card at my shop through PayPal. You do not have to be a PayPal member in order to do this. PayPal is just the facilitator, and does not require any kind of sign up, or personal information from you than any other kind of credit card processor.

TO THE BUYER: If you choose to purchase with a credit card and do not want to join PayPal, you still click on the PayPal icon. That will take you to a PayPal screen where you find the option "I do not have a PayPal account" and follow the instructions. It's easy and quick.

Any questions?? Feel free to email..convo.
Shipping
All items are sent through Canada Post within 2 - 4 days of receiving payment (if the item is purchased on Friday afternoon, or Saturday/Sunday, the item will be shipped Monday as Canada Post is not open on weekends). I will try to ship within two days of receiving payment.

If you are ordering from Canada, your order will be shipped via Expedited Airmail service and should generally take 5-7 business days to deliver.

If you are ordering from the USA or from an international location, your order will be shipped via standard airmail. Standard airmail includes insurance but no tracking (tracking rates are sky high) . It generally takes 1-2 weeks to deliver (counting business days only).

NOTE: Customs sometimes, but rarely usually will hold a package at the border and if so your package will be delayed unfortunately. As i said this happens in the rare instance.

***I will also refund any extra shipping costs more than one dollar, that I have quoted the shipping for.***
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not satisfied with your merchandise it may be exchanged or refunded if returned in good condition and within 4 weeks of delivery. You will receive your refund after the merchandise is returned in good condition minus a 15% restocking fee to cover Etsy's commission and Paypal fees.
