Diane's Handcrafted & More Store
Have been knitting, crocheting and sewing for more years than I'd like to admit; am a 'Baby Boomer' who has been through several decades of fashion; seems everything old is new again (wish that applied to ME), so you'll find that many of my items have a ''60's-'70's flair, just as they did when I first made them back in the '60's-'70's.
As time permits I try to introduce new fashions for Gals AND Guys as the seasons and fashion trends change! You'll find many items made from cool 100% cotton for the hot summer days or winter vacations south OR from warm and toasty wool and other fibers for fall and winter. Lots of things for Baby and Children too!
I also hope to be designing and introducing some Fashions sewn from cotton and cotton blend fabric as well as recycled denim; have some interesting prints and retro designs that I can't wait to make something with. Watch for redesigned jeans and hopefully some funky hats, tops and maybe other things. (Have also been sewing since my Mom first allowed me to use her sewing machine at age 12).
Hope you'll take a peek at my other Categories for Gift, Collectible and Home Decor items and lots of miscellaneous new and gently used goods as I discover them.
I never know what I'll dream up next.... or run across in my cleaning sprees and shopping excursions... so you'll never know what treasures you might find here unless you keep checking back!
Since August of 2000 when I first began my online sales experience I've met so many wonderful people from all over the world.

Things You Should Know
I am basically a one woman operation, handling all aspects of my online business, from designing and making most of what I sell, keeping my store running and attempting to keep it consistent and up to date (you'll find I'm not always successful), emails, feedback, packaging & shipping, etc. Therefore, you might experience a delay in my answer to your emails. I am very sorry for any delays as my first priority must be getting your items made (where that applies) & shipped out to you quickly (I take pride in usually being successful in this area) and assuring that my store is kept supplied and running. I work very hard during the week, and quite often at very strange hours. I am therefore usually unavailable on weekends to answer your emails inquiries; am sure you understand that I must take a few days here and there to just do something other than store things. Or, more often than not, just catching up with completing and packaging orders for shipping on Monday. I apologize if you don't hear from me on those days; I will get back to you as soon as I can as the work week begins. I will endeavor to answer emails of an urgent, time-sensitive nature.
Some Shipping Notes
I do my best to keep your shipping costs as low as possible. Understandably, the most economical methods usually don't offer insurance or tracking and might take longer to reach you. As I ship from Canada and your item must go through at least 2 Postal Systems to reach you in the US or internationally, please allow at least 2 weeks after my shipping notification to receive your item. Unless you've paid for a quicker shipping method which includes tracking/insurance, please don't ask for a tracking number or the whereabouts of your parcel; I am unable to supply either. I'll be more than happy to send you a quote for quicker shipping methods which include insurance & tracking; I can then supply you with a confirmation number and you can track the progress of your package on the Canada Post Website. That's all for now; will be fine-tuning as I think of things (or issues come up) and when I get time :)
Thank you for your continued patronage; hope you'll keep checking back!!
