Hello, my name is Verity. By day I work for an Oxford-based academic publisher, by night (and weekends and any other spare moments) I make the bags and other accessories you see here. I love using vintage or vintage inspired fabrics to make something beautiful, unique - and useful! To see more designs, and my sold items, visit www.flickr.com/photos/veritywarne/sets/72157611164241624.

UK-based buyers who wish to purchase in £Stirling - please visit my second shop at www.madebyloulabelle.folksy.com

Since inheriting my mum’s old sewing machine at the age of 11, I’ve always loved to sew and am drawn to vintage style. I started making bags in 2007 and was immediately attracted by the way that a simple design can become something unique and special with great fabrics and little touches. I love the extra something that a quirky or distinctive bag adds to an outfit!

I hope you get as much enjoyment from wearing and using my bags as I do from making them.

NOTE ABOUT CUSTOM ORDERS: I am usually more than happy to accept custom orders, but am soon to go on maternity leave and will not be able to offer a custom service from September 09 until further notice. Please accept my apologies for this - I will definitely be taking customer orders again once I've had time to adjust to being a new Mum!

About my bags

All my bags are machine-stitched and hand-finished in a pet-free, smoke-free home. They are made using high quality materials. I take great pride in the techniques and quality of my bags and I put my best into every one. Please remember that handmade means there will be slight imperfections that are part of the unique charm of these bags.

Where I have used vintage or recycled materials I make a full note in the product description.

Wrapping

I package my orders with a special touch and a small free token of thanks. All items are shipped "gift ready" and come with a gift card. If this item is a gift for someone and you'd like it sent directly to them, I am happy to include a note from you on the gift card. See below for more details.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
All my products are one of a kind and handmade. All items are thoroughly inspected before they leave my studio, so you can expect quality merchandise with each purchase, but please remember that vintage materials and handmade products means there will be slight imperfections that are part of the unique charm of these bags.

I aim to ensure that the pictures in my shop accurately represent each product, but please contact me within 30 days of the purchase date if you are not satisfied upon receiving your order. Each return is handled on a case by case basis.

Any returned items must be returned in their original packaging or similar and must be mailed with delivery confirmation. Once I have received and inspected the item, I will refund the full purchase amount, minus shipping fees.
Payment
I accept payment with PayPal and credit card. You do not need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card: simply click next to the PayPal and credit card symbols during checkout. You will be given the option to pay by credit card without a PayPal account.

Payment must be made in full and have cleared before the item is shipped. If I do not receive a payment within 7 days after your order is received I will contact you. If no payment is received within 14 days, I will cancel your order and re-list the item.

Payment for custom orders is requested up front - custom-made items cannot be started until payment is received. I am happy to spend as much time as necessary on discussing exact requirements to make sure that the order will meet your expectations.
Shipping
I package my orders with a special touch and a small free token of thanks. Items are wrapped in tissue paper, placed in a pastel pink carrier bag with twisted handles and finished with a Made By Loulabelle logo. Larger, non-foldable bags are placed inside a sturdy shipping box. All items are shipped "gift ready" and come with a gift card. If this item is a gift for someone and you'd like it sent directly to them, I am happy to include a note from you on the gift card at no extra charge – please let me know in the “message to seller”.

I aim to ship all items (except custom orders) within 2 days of receiving payment, but will you contact you if this is likely to be different for your order.

I will combine shipping on multiple purchases.

If your Etsy and PayPal address differ, please let me know in the “message to seller” note during checkout. If you do not notify me and I cannot reach you within 48 hours after payment I will ship the item to the address given during Etsy checkout.

Your purchase is being shipped from the United Kingdom. If you are located outside the UK, I will be shipping your package by air mail.

Please be aware that if you live outside the UK there may be an additional customs fee added to your package by your country’s customs office.
