About

Handcrafts for the quirky, nerdy, off beat, and elegantly out-of-the-ordinary...

Out of My Head was born from a desire to start something creative of my own after toiling for years in small, upscale, retail boutiques ("Should I start my own business? What am I, out of my head?").

It has grown from just a handmade jewelry business started in the artisan section of the famous Charleston, SC weekly Farmer's Market to now include natural, handmade children's toys, doll accessories, unique and age-appropriate children's clothing, Warmies, breastfeeding and birth advocacy, and anything else that pops "Out of My Head!" (now made back home in my small, Maine studio)

I pride myself on shipping very promptly...sometimes even the same day you order! After all, you've paid for it - it's yours - I want to get it to you as soon as possible!

I am truly excited by and thankful for every single order. In my mind, the exchange of money is a sacred event. You work hard for your money...it represents time and energy you have spent and I feel truly blessed every time someone chooses to spend some of that monetary time and energy with me! With that in mind, I put care and thought and all my skills into each and every item I make. What a privilege to share my handwork with you!

Since the birth of my own children, I have been profoundly concerned about the well-being of all the world's children. To do my small part to better their lives, I proudly donate at least 10% of my profits to charities (both local and global) supporting children. Some recent donations have included The St. Jude Children's Hospital, The Smile Train, La Leche League, our local food cupboard, our local library, The Food For Thought Backpack Food Program, and many local fundraisers for schools, PTA's and emergency funds.

Welcome to my little corner of Etsy and thank you for stopping by!

I love designing and creating unique gifts and accessories that celebrate your distinct personality ! I am firmly committed to helping where I can to support the world's children and, to that end, I am very proud to donate at least 10% of my profits to charities - both local and global - that support children...Namaste!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
As is the nature of lovingly handmade items, slight flaws and imperfections are part of their charm. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me right away - I truly want you to be satisfied with my work! Refunds will be cheerfully made upon the return of the items in an unused, sale-able condition. Returns must be made within 14 days and ONLY with prior contact with me so I can be expecting the package. Shipping fees are non-refundable and the buyer will pay return shipping unless approved by me.
Payment
Your payment is appreciated at the time of your order. I very gratefully accept Paypal and Etsy Direct Payment via all major credit cards.
All Maine sales will be charged the 5.5% sales tax of our state.
Shipping
I firmly believe in shipping ASAP after you place your order - it's yours, you've paid for it, and I want to get it to as soon as I can! Most orders ship within 24 hours, some even the same day you order! As we are in Maine, sometimes the winter weather can slightly delay my trips to the Post Office, but I will always advise you if there is an unexpected weather delay.

All of my items ship via the US Postal Service unless you contact me to arrange an alternate carrier. Please expect additional time for the Postal Service to do their job during heavy shipping periods and extreme weather.

I try very hard to keep shipping fees to the Post's actual costs. If you end up ordering several items and I am able to more economically combine your order, I will ALWAYS refund the shipping overage to your account (with a note to tell you it's being refunded!)

I am now pleased to ship internationally via USPS First Class International. This is, by far, the most economical way to ship internationally, but has limited tracking and delivery confirmation abilities. Please contact me if you would like to arrange an alternate way to ship to your country. Although I have rarely had a problem with lost shipments, please be aware that I cannot be held responsible for the international postal service's misplacement of international shipments OR their hold up through the customs process. Thank you so much for your understanding.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS / DUTIES / TAXES
International orders may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. Any and all charges are the responsibility of the buyer and are payable upon delivery.
I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
All customs declaration forms will be filled out in accordance with the law.
Items will be identified as "merchandise" and a value will be declared.
Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so please contact your local customs office for further information before making a purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of my items are from a smoke- and pet-free home and are of the highest quality. They are individually made and, as is the nature of lovingly handmade items, slight flaws and imperfections are part of their charm.

I welcome wholesale inquiries and bulk orders! Thank you for supporting a small, mother-owned business!
