just listed a few new shoulder bags in my etsy shop. all of the bags are in stock and ready to ship! i will continue to list new items this week as i am able to, and will still be shipping right away. if you happen to place an order this evening (sunday), it will ship first thing tomorrow (monday) morning, via USPS priority mail. if you would like to upgrade to USPS express shipping, i am happy to do so. please be aware that USPS changes their refund policy for express shipping between december 22-december 25th. if you would like express shipping, i will only charge you the actual difference in price (probably about $25-$30, as opposed to $8 for priority shipping). you can either leave a note in the message to seller box when you check out, or contact me at and i will send you an invoice for the difference.

pebble grey and denim with aqua

as requested, a smaller version of the tough ruffles shoulder bags. available in my etsy shop in pebble greys and vintage dark denim with aqua. i have a few other colors in various stages of completion, and will hopefully be able to finish those up by tomorrow or saturday.

**a quick note about holiday shipping: i live one block from the nearest post office, and through december 24th i will be shipping all orders right away. 'right away' means all orders placed before 3pm EST will ship the same day, orders placed after 3pm EST will ship the following day. i will do everything i can to get your orders into the post right away, but i cannot control the post office, so i cannot make any guaranteed delivery times. you will receive an email (to the email address attached to your etsy order) from once your order ships, with all of the tracking info so that you can follow your package once it leaves my hands. all orders ship via USPS priority mail. if you have any questions about your order, please contact me at thank you all and happy holidays!

hey there. sorry things have been so quiet around here and the shop lately. my friend kat and i are having a show at sweet jane vintage this month. kat makes paintings, i make stitchings, and we have both been working around the clock to finish these pieces during the busiest time of year. if you happen to be in philadelphia, stop by the opening and see what we have been up to.

sweet jane vintage, 1820 e. passyunk ave, saturday december 11th, 6-10pm

we hung the show last night, so i am back to hank-ing up a storm now, and am hoping to have a new set of bags in the shop on monday, possibly sooner. many of you have requested the tough ruffles shoulder bags in smaller sizes, so that is what i will be focused on.

oh, and be sure to check out all of tim gough's shop and check out all his t-shirts, prints and new holiday cards, and take advantage of free shipping on all orders through december 20th.
