Announcement    Welcome to the WaggonsWest TRAVELING CHICKENS AND MONSTER SHOW
The TCMS brings your gimcracks and gewgaws to entertain and amuse.
Upcycled Badges!
Who knew badges were so cool? They are showing up all over the place this fall! Overload your backpack and jeans with our affordable versions. Request a custom patch with your name or some other favorite.
Here at WaggonsWest, we strongly believe that a badge in hand is worth more than two badges on a wish list. We do everything we can to keep costs down and to make custom badges and patches accessible to everyone. Please do inquire if you want multiple badges or to place a bulk order. We may be able to make some adjustments for you.
Plushies!
You've seen them at the shows no they are starting to show up here in the shop. Monsters, Chickens and other assorted Plushies! These are SMALL in size. They are pocket friends or office pals not giant toys. Check the measurements in the listings.
And More!
Look for a variety of goods from Fairy Tale pillows to lace earrings to magic bags. You may even find a small quilt or two as you scroll through the offerings on the Waggon.

My story, the short version...
I am a recovering academic who currently works for a grassroots environmental organization on issues and projects relating to clean water. In my spare time, I make fiber art, primarily upcycled badges and plushies. As much as possible I use from scraps and remnants and repurposed fabics. I make things that make me laugh. I started making traveling chickens when my kids were younger. They could 'travel' into your brother's face without making mom crazy. Lately they have begun traveling the world with people posting photos using #travelingchickenandmonstershow. From there I started making other creatures, each with their own attitude and story and the crazy has grown. I work at home using a single needle embroidery machine. My husband works with me cutting denim and making the badges I design on his own machine in his man cave. While I work with some licensed patterns most of my plushies and badges are original designs that I have drawn, digitized and sewn.

Shipping

Please let me know prior to purchase if you have special shipping needs. I will be happy to make any reasonable accommodations.

Holiday Delivery. In normal times, orders placed before December 10 arrive on time. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee holiday delivery this year. I will do everything I can to get your made to order item in the mail as soon as possible. However, delivery has been spotty at best and once I put your package in the mail it is out of my control.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING NOTICE. *** Please note, that international shipping has been unreliable at best during 2020. Packages have been taking months to arrive and many have been returned. I wish I had better options but I don't at this time. *** I will ship small quantities of badges to international addresses. Please contact me if you want to purchase a plushie so I can find the most economical way to send it to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I specialize in small batch custom work. I know that sometimes you just want one badge and you don't want to pay a huge set up fee, design fee and minimum order just to get it. I will work with you to come up with the item you want for a price that is reasonable.

Simple changes in color or the addition of text typically cost an additional fifty cents per badge. More detailed design work will cost more. I can work from your drawing or your description. I will work with you until we have a design that you like and that I am able to produce.

I work with upcycled materials, primarily old blue jeans in dark and light blue, black and white. If you have a special request for a background color it may take me some time to find an item in that color that is suitable for the purpose.

I am also happy to make multiples if you need more than one. Let me know what you are looking for and when you need it and we can work out the details.

I keep my turn around time as short as possible and will keep you informed of the progress of your order

I do my best to keep the per badge cost as low as possible.

All of the designs in my shop are either original or purchased with permission for sales. I cannot create items from licensed designs unless you have written, transferable rights for the sale of items made with them. Convo me if you have any questions.
