About

Handmade designs for the whimsical time of childhood since 2011

Established in 2011, King Soleil has evolved in product lines, image, and customer, but one aspect of my business has remained constant; the sincere care and utmost attention given to the design and creation of each and every product.

Hi. I’m Morgan. A born overachiever and type-A serial planner, I believed my path was laid out for me since adolescence. With an honors degree in Psychology from Tulane University and a graduate degree acceptance in my pocket, becoming a clinical child neuropsychologist was, in my mind, a done deal. All I had to do was sign on the dotted line. That was 2006.

I thank my lucky stars that life happened as it did, my path veered, and in 2008 I welcomed Soleil, my first child, into the world. Becoming a mother granted me a purpose I never knew would be so all-encompassing and unequivocally wonderful. Less than two years later, in 2010, I was overjoyed to expand my little family when Kingston, my second child, was born. As a stay at home mother my life centered around King and Soleil, but I was itching to use my brain in new ways, and the inevitable strain of adulting (read: financial obligations of a family of four) began to take its toll.

One year later, in 2011, I opened King Soleil’s online doors with just a handful of crochet rugs and baby blankets and a faint understanding of e-commerce. I remember the notification of my first sale, a blue and white rug with a starfish, and felt that twinge of the old, utterly determined Morgan again.

Over the next five years I would learn to balance motherhood with owning a successful business, welcome my third child, River, and teach myself new crafts like embroidery, sewing, dressmaking, and doll artistry. I would create my own website, individualize my brand, be featured by Martha Stewart’s Dreamers into Doers, Disney, and Babble, along with countless other blogs and sites, write patterns and create designs that would be published internationally in magazines and a book. My products would be in homes across six continents (still working on Antarctica), and flower girls would wear my dresses walking down aisles from across the USA, to Morocco, United Arab Emirates, Japan, New Zealand, Italy, France, and many, many others.

Hi. I'm Morgan. I am a mother, an entrepreneur, a writer, a designer, and a maker. I laugh too loud, I love all things magical, I adore my little chalet in the woods here in New England, and I have come to realize I am happiest creating products that make children smile. I may still be an overachiever but I am also present in my life and am incredibly grateful to every single one of my customers, as you enable me to keep King Soleil’s doors open, continue to work while loving what I do, and support my three children.

Thank you for stopping by and reading a little about me, the one-woman-show behind this shop, as I am so proud to share my world, and that of King Soleil with you.

Payment
I accept Paypal, personal checks, and money orders. Your order will not be begun until the item is paid in full. This includes deposit listings as well (as detailed below).
A cancellation of the order may be met if I have not begun your order or ordered materials for your order. Please read my time frames carefully ***prior*** to placing an order.
Shipping
Shipping prices include shipping and handling and domestic tracking. If you would like insurance added to your package please let me know prior to shipping. I use the US Postal Service.

Shipping times vary; even with the estimates given via the USPS. Therefore I ship domestic orders at least 2 weeks before an event date and a month prior to an international event date. I am not responsible for packages arriving after event dates when kept to this schedule. If my shipping estimate infringes on the 2 week domestic or month international deadline I will upgrade your shipping free of charge.

Rush shipping is always available and I will quote you a price based on where you are in the world. I will also recommend rush shipping if an event date pushes my time frames.

I will mark all international packages as merchandise with the correct value listed. You are responsible for any fees in your country.

I ship worldwide! If you are ordering more than one item, or a crochet rug, contact me with your delivery information (including city and country) for a shipping quote.

I am not responsible for any lost, undeliverable, or damaged products via the shipping process. I do track domestic orders. I will proceed on a case by case basis if such issues occur. You are responsible for giving me your correct, current address at the time of the order. If a package is marked as undeliverable and delivered back to my address you are responsible for the return shipping paid within 15 days of my email to you confirming the returned package. Packages will be sent to the address given at the time of the order. I am not responsible for changed addresses, moving addresses, or old addresses given at the time of the order. Please make sure the address given at the time of the order is current and will be current given my time frames as to when your product will be sent.
Refunds and Exchanges
One of a kind, personalized, and custom fit products, including all special occasion dresses are not refundable. I am not responsible for any loss or damage that occurs during shipping. If you are unhappy WHATSOEVER with your purchase, please please please contact me as soon as possible so we can resolve any and all concerns.

I pride myself on customer service and am here to make sure you LOVE your King Soleil product :)
Additional policies and FAQs
A note on custom orders:

Custom items are made to order and are non-returnable and non-refundable. Please be sure to spell names for name embroidery hoops correctly in the notes to seller during the order.

A note on time frames:

Time frames vary based on the time of year and my availability. I can only take a limited amount of special occasion dress orders per month and can book 4-6 months ahead of time.

I will give an estimated ship date, but this is truly an estimation and will only ship by a certain date if a specific date is given at the time of the order, and/or agreed to prior to the order being placed. I always do my absolute best to get orders out as soon as I can, while keeping handmade quality and care in the forefront. I have chosen to keep King Soleil small and completely handmade by me, but that does elongate turn over times.

A note on deposits:

I offer deposits on special occasion dresses for events roughly 5 months or more ahead of time. There is a first deposit of 30% of the cost of the dress and then the other 70% plus shipping will be paid by an agreed upon date. Keep in mind I do not order your materials or begin production on the dress until it is paid in full, but a deposit locks in the price and style of the dress and guarantees production time.

A note on discounts, giveaways, samples, and wholesale:

I do offer small discounts on special occasion dresses on a case by case basis that vary on size and number of dresses (usually 4 or more in one order). This also depends on my availability as well. If you have any questions or would like more information about discounts for a large order do not hesitate to ask.

I am not currently able to participate in any website, blog, or event giveaways. However, I love hearing from you and if I like your site or event I am happy to promote it on my sites.

I do offer samples of fabrics that I currently have in stock for special occasion dresses. Contact me for a sample listing (ranges from $5-$8 depending on style of dress and with free shipping).

If you are interested in a ordering a bulk wholesale order please contact me with your shop/company information (phone, website, address), what products you are interested in and how many of each product you would like. I am not offering the special occasion dresses through wholesale orders at this time as they can only be purchased through the King Soleil Etsy shop. I love working with businesses big and small and always am thrilled to meet new people!
