Handmade, remade or handpicked by me!

I sell handmade, remade and vintage items mainly from the 60s and 70s. A lot of my inspiration is now from my little girl, hence the baby and toddler things that now fill my shop...

I love to make things and crochet is my main weapon of choice. I like to try out my own new designs and usually they are just that little bit quirky! I've even been known to refer to myself as a 'crochet artist' after a couple of glasses of wine :)

I'm also a bit of a dab hand with the sewing machine and as a teenager I used to make a lot of my own clothes. I'm always on the lookout for quirky and geeky fabrics to make things with.

All my vintage items are handpicked and are usually the one off item that caught my eye, or it was something that had been pushed to one side and labelled as useless that I knew I could remake and breathe some new life into it.

I am more than happy for you to contact me with your ideas for commissions or if you are looking for that special little thing. Just contact me!

Customer service is important to me and I'll always try and get back to you as soon as humanly possible :)

    I started my 1960s obsession as a young teenager and started buying from charity shops to get the look I desperately wanted. It wasn't even called vintage back then, it was called alternative, thrifty shopping!

Hey, welcome to Quirky Purple!

First of all, love making things :)

Secondly, I love to mooch around shops finding lovely little vintage goodies and sometimes give them a new lease of life as something slightly different!

I also have a website and a blog at www.quirkypurple.com

Returns and exchanges
The majority of my items are handmade so will vary a little, as that is part of their beauty :) If I am making a custom order for you, please ensure that I've captured your ideas perfectly before accepting the custom order. Please don't be afraid to ask questions :)

As the some of my items are vintage, all enquiries regarding refunds and exchanges will be considered on a case by case basis. Refunds will not be given for items that do not fit unless the measurements provided by me were incorrect. Please make sure to check the detailed measurements which are provided for each piece.
I accept all Etsy forms of payment, which is secure for both buyer and seller and the most convenient way of paying for an on line transaction.

Please convo mevif you have any questions or concerns regarding payment.
I do my best to ship items as soon as humanly possible, but occasionally during very busy times it may be a little longer. Christmas is alway busy, but I will keep you posted :)

Some of my items are made to order so I try and state on the item listing how long it takes to create. I always aim to complete before those times.

I ship WORLDWIDE so please give me a shout of you would like to know shipping costs to your little area of the globe.

For UK orders, to try and keep all our costs down, I use 2nd class postage. This will generally take 2 days to arrive once posted. If you need something more quickly I can set up a custom order with your postage requirements.

All customers are liable for customs charges or VAT if their country adds it. Please be aware of the laws in your country.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each handmade item is unique, which is of course the beauty of it, but don't forget this means that they will each vary a little.

Vintage items : Please bear in mind that these are vintage items and therefore may not be in as new / mint condition. I will always be truthful about the condition of my items and will list any flaws/issues/alterations. I state the measurements of each item usually layed flat. Please bear in mind that vintage sizing is often much smaller than modern sizing so measure yourself carefully.
