    Home is my Happy Place

    I started my shop in early 2008, after my sister Monica found out she was pregnant with her third baby. We had been partners, selling children's clothing, and I loved it. Pregnancy was taking it's toll on her, and she just didn't have the energy to sew anymore. The problem was that she was the seamstress, and I handled the customer service part of our little business.

    I really wanted to continue, but had no idea how to sew. Monica told me there was nothing to it (not true)! She gave me a lesson, her trusty Kenmore sewing machine, and told me to go for it. I did, and here I am six years later, still plugging along, and loving it.

    I made the switch to home decor, from children's clothing, because I've always loved decorating, and find lots of inspiration in the way people decorate their homes. I also love to bake, so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen...washing dishes, and using dish towels.

    I know that making the place you live "home," is sometimes tough. You might find it hard to be inspired by something, or there might only be a tiny bit of money in your budget available to spruce things up. A new towel, a pretty pillow, or a new set of placemats will give you the best bang for your buck, making your home, a happy place.

      Hello! I'm Vanessa, and I love to sew. I also love to bake, which has made me a bit rounder over the years...and by default has me spending loads of time in the kitchen, where I use lots and lots of dish towels! I hope you'll like them too :D

    Welcome to Vanessa and Company!

    All items are handmade by me, in my smoke free/pet free studio. I use a variety of textiles in my designs, mostly 100% cotton. I will always disclose the type of fabric used. I also love using vintage and re-purposed items. Ribbons, fringe, buttons, and a variety of trims, sky's the limit!

    A little about my work...
    All seams are professionally finished. Seams are sewn first, then serged and topstitched for durability. All fabric and blank tees are pre-washed to minimize shrinkage. Appliques are heat fused to the fabric, then decoratively stitched. You will receive your handcrafted items with sewn in woven labels, hangtags, and carefully packaged.

    "READY-TO-SHIP" items will ship within 24-48 hours, after payment posts.

    Please allow 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS after payment posts, for completion of CUSTOM work. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

    Accepted payment methods

    Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
    Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
    Returns and exchanges
    I generally do not accept returns. I will do my best to accurately describe in detail, the item that you are buying, and just ask that you please read the description carefully before purchasing. I do, however, know that there are some circumstances, where an exception may be made, and I want to make sure you are happy! If there is ever any problem with something you purchase from Vanessa & Company, please e-mail or convo me, and I will do everything I can to make it right.
    I accept PAYPAL, and all major credit cards.

    I respectfully ask that you pay immediately after purchasing something from my shop, as you would at any retail store. However if payment has not been received within THREE (3) days of the original transaction, I will assume you no longer want the item, and will cancel the transaction.

    The same goes for any CUSTOM order requests. Please pay promptly. If payment has not been received within SEVEN (7) days from the original listing date, I will assume you have changed your mind, and the listing will be cancelled.

    All California residents will be charged sales tax.
    I ship via the USPS, Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is optional.
    All "READY-TO-SHIP" items will be delivered within 24-48 business hours, after payment has been made. CUSTOM made items will ship within 7-10 business days. I am also happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases, and base shipping charges, on the package weight. I have no problem shipping First Class Mail, upon request, as long as the package weight is 16 ounces or less (I believe 16 ounces is the weight limit for First Class mail).
    Additional policies and FAQs
    I welcome CUSTOM Orders! Just convo me with your request, and I will happily set up a separate listing for you.

    Sky's the limit! If you can dream it it, I can sew it. Do you need something for a bridal shower, hostess gift, bachelorette party, gift for your mom, or mother-in-law? You can't go wrong with a kitchen towel. Convo me.

    TANKS and TEES:
    I use American Apparel blanks, unless otherwise noted, and they tend to run small, about one size. Please keep this in mind when CUSTOM ordering any tanks or tees.
    I occasionally use Old Navy blanks.
    The ON blanks are more true to size, and if you prefer those, and the style that you want is available, I will use their brand.
