Market Bags! Tote Bags! Doilies! Shoe Bags! Bookmarks! Coasters! Custom Crochet! Aloha!
Welcome to ShellysBags! I am just getting started her on Zibbet, so I don't have my shop fully stocked as yet. But over the next couple of weeks you will see dozens of market bags, tote bags, intricate doilies, and other beautiful things all made by my hands.
"I just received the bag you made and want to thank you so much. The bag is perfect -- and beautifully made. I love the colours and I will use the bag with great pleasure. You are very talented!!" - ShellysBags customer, purchased a quilted City Tote Bag in purple batik.
"Shelly, I received my bag today and am jumping with joy! I so, so love it!" -- ShellysBag customer, purchased a crocheted Market Bag
Come in and enjoy the creative colors and styles of my art in crochet and fabric.
- My City Totes are made in beautiful and funky padded combinations you'll love to show off. I will do custom orders for this product.
- I love making delicate lacy doilies in unexpected colors from vintage patterns. You'll want them for yourself and for unique gifts. I can also make custom doilies or reproduce vintage doilies for you.
- My Market Bags might at first look like others you've seen but they have upgraded custom construction and color choices and combinations you'll never see anywhere else.
- I am branching out into designing more accessories, like lacy bookmarks and cozy cotton scarves. I developed the patterns for these myself.
- New product to come is shoe bags made from crushed panne velvet, cuddle your favorite shoes the way they deserve!
This shop accepts Paypal, and payment through Paypal must be made at the time of your order. I will fulfill orders after I recieve full payment. If payment is not made and if I cannot reach you by normal means within ten (10) days, I will have to cancel the sale and re-list the item. Items purchased by e-check thru Paypal will be shipped once the e-check has cleared.
All of my products are designed and constructed in a smoke-free and pet-free environment.
I take custom orders for bags and doilies, just send me a note!
I use the least expensive shipping possible. With doilies this usually means First Class Parcel; with all totes it is usually Parcel Post. If you need expedited shipping, please convo me and we can work that out. A USPS Priority Mail package costs about $11.00 to ship, in the US.
If the cost of shipping your item (including packing materials, packaging, and postage) is more than $1.00 less than you paid for shipping then I will refund that amount.
I do ship all over the world; however, please note that buyers are responsible for any and all customs and duty charges that may be incurred when purchasing an item from the United States to be delivered in another country. It is impossible for me to be responsible for the goverment policies for customs and duties in your country.
Refunds, Returns and Exchanges
I have a 30-day return policy for issues with workmanship or damage in transit. If you have a problem with my workmanship, or if it was damaged in transit, I will give you a full refund when you return the item in the condition in which you received it. If your product is damaged on arrival, I will send another. I just ask that you provide me with a detailed description of what was damaged and if possible, a photograph. However, please do keep in mind that these products are made by hand by one person, not by an automaton in a sweatshop somewhere in the world. Not every stitch will be perfectly straight. But every stitch is made with loving care.
If you get one of my products and decide you would like to have it in a different color, I will be happy to exchange it if you pay for the additional shipping costs and the cost of acquiring materials if I must make a special order for the color/fiber you want.
I came to creativity a bit late - only after health issues forced me to retire from the high tech industry just a few years ago. With my hands full of time and my ego bruised from not bringing home a paycheck, I cast about looking for something to at least keep me busy -- and still work within the confines of having to be seated most of the time. I had played with crochet when I was a kid but never made anything. But a nudge from a cousin convinced me to really teach myself the art...and soon it seemed that I was channeling my grandmother, who always had a crochet project near at hand. While I started with making market bags, my attention soon turned to fine threadwork and I've been turning out beautiful doilies ever since. Once I found my creative spot I also started sewing again. When I was younger I sewed a lot of my clothes and even ventured into making men's shirts. So I am also sewing bags with beautiful and fun fabrics and lots of intricate detail.
