Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl

Announcement    *WELCOME SPRING 2021*
After a whirlwind of staging, selling and buying a home, it's finally time to sit down and breathe. The shop is back online and after several years of offsite storage for much of my inventory, it's back under one roof! I even have "new eyes" to view it all after a successful double cataract surgery... during Covid!
Covid-19 has created some pressures and roadblocks for shipping and sadly, this continues in my part of the world. Your understanding and support for the more fluid timelines created by tighter processes at the world's postal services, the small, retail outlets that house the public-use kiosks and the restrictions to public transit, taxis, etc. is so appreciated.
I hope you're all safe and well <3

*SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT*
Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm adding a quick not here to say that yes - we're still in rotating lockdowns in a very cold, wintery Ottawa and it does have an impact on how and when I can go to the Post Office. It's still usually once a week but can stretch to two. Please take note of this when you're making a purchase. In addition, I have again placed most of my inventory into storage in anticipation of an upcoming move. Your best bet is to message me in advance of purchase so I can confirm with you that I can locate and pack your item in a timely way. This way, there'll be no stress or disappointments. As always, thank you so much for supporting my tiny business. I appreciate all of you more than I can say! Karin

30-12-2020 HUGE UPDATE OF SHAWL AND SOCK WEIGHT YARNS! Grab your favourite before I change my mind!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
COVID-19 quarantine and self-isolating regulations here in Ottawa, Canada are still impacting my ability to ship in a timely way. I usually ship once per week but this is dependent upon access to safe transportation and outlets being unaffected by "lockdown" regulations.
Thank you for your understanding
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Regarding Etsy's new policy of promoting shops that offer free shipping - We do not fold some or all of the shipping cost into the price of our products nor will we. Due to the fact that it costs more to ship from Canada using Canada Post, it would not make sense to do so. Our shop believes this is the most transparent business practise model.

You are paying ONLY what Canada Post charges to get your purchase to you safely and efficiently. Our shop is proud to use recycle shipping and packing materials at NO cost to our buyers. As of 1 August 2019, our shop has found it necessary to include a CAD 2.50 non-refundable charge for handling. This is strictly to cover the additional fee that Etsy charges on postage transactions.

We ship via Canada Post. When calculating Canadian rates (incl. GST & fuel surcharge), we use a destination furthest away from us. If your rate is less than charged, we refund rate overages above CAD 1.00.

To the United States we ship the most economical way which does not include tracking on packages below 1 kg. If you would like tracking, please add the shipping upgrade "Tracked Packet" during checkout.

We also ship worldwide, but those customers outside of Canada and the United States should contact us for a shipping quote prior to purchase if the option visible in the listing

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. We are not responsible for delays due to customs.
AND
once I've safely packaged an item and delivered it to the postal outlet, I am not responsible for delays incurred by the policies and procedures of the Post Office in mine or other countries.

About KeiBDesignsAndKnits

Sales 223
On Etsy since 2008

Knits, Knitting And All Things Fibre

I opened my Etsy shop several years ago when it was still new and was a groundbreaker venue for artisans and craftspeople to sell their goods. At the time, I was a much better customer than shop owner! I've found many lovely gifts and treasures here over the years. It's just the six months that I've begun stocking KeiB Designs & Knits. My expanding line of patterns and overflowing supply shelves were the incentive to jump in to the vending part of Etsy.
Although my full-time work keeps me busy, I do love to keep my shop stocked with my original knit and crochet designs and with the results of whatever current crafting passion has my attention.
Once in a while, you may see some of the supplies that I use listed here as well. There is always a bit of creative overflow and I hope you'll enjoy those offerings too.
Wishing you all the best, Karin
