Announcement   Thanks for shopping with me!

I found a pattern for a cute Valentine bag the first week of February 2009. I thought it was cute and made the purse but without the felt heart and since I am not a fringe person, a bow instead of the fringe. Everywhere I went I got tons of compliments and requests for more bags. I have always preferred a small purse and sold several to my friends and acquaintances. I began to get requests for a larger bag but I didn't make any until several months later when someone asked if she could commission me to make a larger bag. The medium bag was born! I have sold close to 50 purses in my area. People love them and they are quite the conversation piece. People have purchased and sent them to Seattle Washington and New York state. I have purses coast to coast! I have since then started experimenting with the plarn and have made a pair of sandals, several cell phone holders and kitchen scrubbies all out of plarn so stay tuned for more products!

All of my products are made with plastic bags from purchases I or my friends have made. I do not purchase bags and I make the plarn myself. I sort the bags and do not use any that are dirty or held raw meat. WE are a non-smoking household and our only pet is a parrot so no pet fur either! These items are all new and never used and meet my high standards! You can see more products at http://recycledbyme.angelfire.com.

Convo me (or email me) to get on an e-mailing list and I can notify you when I post a new purse or local fairs I will be attending. Thanks!

THANK YOU

Shop policies

Last updated on February 3, 2011
Welcome! Thank you for helping our earth by keeping plastic shopping bags out of our landfills. All bags are used bags from shopping trips of me or my friends. I try to use reusable bags myself whenever possible so most bags are from others. If the bags are sticky or smell bad, I do not put them into one of my products.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
I accept Paypal or Money Orders. Please be considerate and arrange Payment within 3 business days of a purchase. I do understand that things happen, so please keep in touch and let me know if there are any issues.

I prefer to ship USPS since I live near the post office and their Priority mail rates have a set price now. If you are local, let me know and we can arrange a pickup to save on shipping costs!
Refunds and Exchanges
I trust the Post office here, but if you do not trust yours, please let me know so we can look into some kind of delivery confirmation. If you decide the item is not for you, please return it within two weeks and I will refund your money minus shipping fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have posted all of my purses on Etsy and I do take them all with me to local fairs so if one sells at a fair, I try to remove the listing within 24 hours.
