Announcement   Celebrating my 10TH year on Etsy. I crochet hats for adults: crochet newsboy hats, crochet berets, crochet and knit slouchy hats, crochet earflap hats, create your own matching hat and circle scarves, various gay pride items and crochet hat patterns. Every stitch in every item is hand made by me.

If you see it in my shop it is ready to ship. I ship next business day 90% of the time, if not, the day after. If you would like a custom order and I have the yarn in stock I can make most hats in a day.

Please read some of my feedback if you're not 100% sure about purchasing from me:

Finally figured out how I wanted my bands to look and found the perfect buttons to put them on with. These can be added to many of the newsboy hats in my shop through Variations. Made a whole bunch this weekend to gear up for the winter/holiday season.

About

It all changed at the end of December 2005

I really wish I could remember how I first heard about Etsy. Nobody knew about it when I joined, so I can't imagine who told me about it, or what possessed me to sign up. I was a crocheter and knitter at the time, and had so much stuff already made that I didn't know what to do with, and I think I just wanted an outlet to sell the stuff I was making, because I was going to make it anyway.

I don't know how long it took until it became a business, but I do love my little business. And I love my craft. I love the yarns, the yarn stores, other people who love yarn, I love photographing my stuff, figuring out what to do with all the leftovers. If only I had a bigger apartment, I think I could really turn this into something.

My real love though is theater. I love to perform and I've been fairly successful at it at times. Sometimes I think that if I spent as much time on my career as I do on my Etsy business I might actually have a career. But at the moment Etsy is giving back more than my career is, so for now, I'm dedicating more time to being here.

I do most of my crocheting on my commute. I take a glorious express bus ride into Manhattan many times a week and I am with iPad usually watching the previous night's Rachel Maddow show and crocheting. It's heaven for me, except when the person behind me is talking on their cellphone. I love being so productive on my commute, and it keeps me from getting impatient when we're sitting in traffic.

My beautiful one bedroom apartment looks like a yarn store exploded in it. There is yarn everywhere. I have a huge yarn closet, but that's not nearly enough for my stash. It's a little bit ridiculous. I really try to use the stuff I already have, but there are so many amazing yarns out there, and sometimes when you're away from home, and you see something, you just have to have it. You know what I mean?

Thanks so much for reading. I would love it if you would check out my little shop: http://tepperwear.etsy.com

    Who knew when I joined Etsy at the end of 2005 it, and crochet, would become such an important part of my life. I do this as a hobby, but I take my craft and my little business very seriously.

Hey. Thanks so much for stopping by. Feel free to contact me about anything. If you see a hat that you love but don't see it in a color you love I can probably make it. If your head is particularly small or large or if you have dreadlocks or lots of curls, let me know and I'll make you a hat.

Would love you to follow me on Twitter:

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept PayPal and Direct Checkout.

NY RESIDENTS MUST READ:
NY State Residents will be charged tax on wearable items. NYC residents are exempt from this tax.

If item is a non-wearable I have to charge all NY residents State and County tax and you therefor have to pay the manually updated bill via PayPal ONLY. So please choose "Other" as your form of payment, and I will send you an invoice from Paypal. Direct Checkout doesn't currently have this option.
Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE READ:
International customers are responsible for fees and taxes (VAT and/or other) that may be imposed by their own country. Thank you for understanding!
Shipping
I usually ship within 1 to 2 days of receiving your order.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns make me sad, but if the hat doesn't fit (and let's face it, all head sizes are not created equal) I will take it back for a full refund. Just send me a convo and send the hat back within 15 days. I will send you a refund through whichever payment processor you used as soon as I receive the returned item(s). I will also be happy to try another go-round if the hat doesn't fit and you would like me to try again. I do ask that when you repackage the hat that you please not fold the brim, but rather lie the hat flat, the way it was when you received it. I really appreciate it.

Returns on custom orders are up to the discretion of TepperWear.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like a custom order, please include your email address in your initial inquiry. An email address would be very helpful.

If you are ordering something custom to an already existing listing, please convo me before purchasing. There might be a price difference and I need to know this before you purchase. Thank you.
