Hi! Beach Girls Purls is the creative enterprise of Kerry Ennis and Laura Bykowski, two friends in Long Beach, NY who do knitty & spinny things in our spare time. Here you’ll find one of a kind items made by us and our friends.

In a world of mass-produced, foreign-made, inexpensive objects, we actively choose to embrace creativity, community and hand crafters/artisans. We are truly flattered by your attention and appreciate your business!

It is important that you are happy when you buy something from us. Everything we sell here is made by real people, not machines. If something isn't as you expected, please let us know so we can fix it. The best way to get in touch with us is to convo us here or email beachgirlspurls [at] gmail [dot] com.

We knit with both easy-care acrylics and natural fibers. The product listing here on Etsy will always include the material composition and care information; we also tag each item with this info, too.

All items are washed in non-allergenic detergent and wrapped in new tissue paper when we ship to you. If you'd like gift wrapping or have any special shipping needs, just ask!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
We will accommodate exchanges and returns if you contact us within 14 days of purchase. All items must be returned in new, unworn condition. Buyer pays shipping. For returns, the purchase price will be refunded minus shipping charges.
You can pay with PayPal, personal check or money order. Payment (or payment arrangements) must be made within 48 hours of sale to avoid cancellation of your order. In addition, payment must be received in full and personal checks must clear before we can ship. Thanks for understanding.

LB locals: choose "check" as payment option and you will not be charged through PayPal. We can also discount or eliminate shipping for in-person delivery.

Orders can be cancelled until they are shipped. If you need to cancel an order that has already shipped, please contact us immediately.
Your purchase will be shipped within two business days of payment receipt. Buyers pay all shipping costs as indicated in the product listing.

Normal shipping is First Class USPS. Delivery confirmation is included in the shipping fees. Expedited shipping, insurance or other arrangements, such as in person pickup for local customers can be arranged. If you would like an option other than First Class USPS, include a note to seller with your purchase. We will coordinate with you and send you an updated invoice.

We offer combined shipping on some merchandise.

Outside the US? We are happy to ship internationally--please convo us for an accurate quote to your country.

You will receive an email from PayPal or us personally when your item ships. Please make sure your shipping information is correct as we cannot offer refunds for shipping errors.
Additional policies and FAQs
Beach Girls Purls began as a part-time gig by two friends who live in Long Beach, NY and met commuting on the train to NYC (we were both knitting). Thanks, Irene!
