GREAT HAT! Warm, adjustable (big enough for my head), and nicely made and quickly delivered.

This necklace is so beautiful and unusual. It spreads out, rather than hanging there. I love it. The Shop is a favorite.
Diving into Shining Things ....
I learned to love crafts in my grandmother's home at 9 Elizabeth Street, the origin of the shop name. While she earned "butter and egg money" from elegant doilies and other frilly creations, I am drawn to fashion accessories and shiny things. After trying my hand at many different crafts in many different places, I was finally led to the joys of knitting in Montreal, Quebec. There I discovered my alter-ego, "Marie-Antoinknit," who wants to make something wonderful for "tout le monde."
I hear fibers whispering to me; glittering beads catch my eye and coax me into side trips I didn't know I was going to make. I know I took the right path when customers send notes to tell me that the item they chose fit perfectly and flatters the way it was intended. There is magic that happens when a hat finds the head it fits or earrings find the outfit they were meant to complement. I hope you enjoy my shop, and that the magic finds you. If you're on Facebook, please stop by and Like my page to keep up with the latest offerings, special discounts and (of course) pictures of cute cats:
Owner, Maker, Designer, Photographer, Editor & Yarn Connoisseur
Marie-Antoinknit is the alter-ego of Jo O'Connell, your humble proprietor. "Marie" does the knitting & jewelry making, while Jo handles the business side of the shop: photos, copy, media & shipping.
Dax - middle name Sparkle - boasts of having lived in both Canada and the US. She keeps an eye on the pre-production goods (yarn and the beads) at all times.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Sales that ship to addresses within the state of Ohio are subject to sales tax based on your county rate.
Estimated delivery times vary depending on your location. I ship via USPS First-Class mail. If Priority USPS or FedEx delivery is required, please contact me to set that up and get a quote. Any international shipping duties, import taxes, etc., are the responsibility of the buyer.
Delivery confirmation is included in shipping costs and a tracking confirmation number will be provided at the time of shipment. For Canadian or International orders, that will be a Customs number, though I am unable to provide tracking once it leaves the US.
Protection for non-delivery is offered to buyers (and sellers) through PayPal and most credit cards. I also provide insurance against postal loss on sales over $50.
Please make sure the address shown on your order is current and correct. IF YOU ARE SHIPPING TO SOMEONE ELSE (e.g., a gift), let me know because I won't ship to a different person without your confirmation. This is for your protection. If you are SENDING A GIFT to someone else, please be sure to note that in the comments so I don't send them the invoice.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item has been damaged in transit, the US Postal Service generally provides a damage certificate. Please include that with your return so I can file a claim.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you see something in the shop that you like but prefer another color, I would be happy to try to make it if I can get the right fiber. Custom orders for different colors or sizes can be discussed via private message or convo. I do not take custom orders for things you don't see in the shop (e.g., afghans, layettes, sweaters, mittens or socks), and a request for a different type of fiber may increase the price of the item.
If you wish to place a custom order, I will work with you to arrange an agreeable turnaround & delivery time before you make the purchase.
If you have read this much, you have the right to know: my name isn't really Marie. You will find me as MarieAntoinknit on Twitter or Pinterest, but you can just call me Jo.
