About

Living to Create & Share ~ Aspire to Inspire.

Selling supplies on Etsy happened by accident, but it turned out to be one of the most rewarding things we've ever taken on.

Thank you, to all of our Etsy customers & Etsy - we love you!

Our MISSION STATEMENT:

To openly and honestly share our creative knowledge in the hopes of changing the world one life at a time.

We believe:
1. Always treat others the way you would want to be treated.
2. Always do whats right.
3. Always do the best you can.

~Our Story~
We have been self employed since 1994. Artisan products have always been our focus. It was only natural that we would find Etsy at some point. We began designing and selling unique hand knit and handmade sweaters made in South America. We operated kiosks in Malls selling knits during the holiday season in upstate NY and throughout Wisconsin. From there we began wholesaling at trade shows around the country. We were lucky to be picked up by Target Direct and put in numerous mail order catalogs. We were in 1000s of retail shops around the country. Our sweater sets and baby blankets were top sellers within the category. We had dozens of sales reps representing us in various categories and markets in all regions of the country. It was an exciting time. Over the years, small business has changed dramatically. The majority of those family boutiques, resort shops and gift shops have since closed their doors, sadly.

As things shifted in the trade, we moved into making crafty trinkets ourselves for the gift industry. I had breast cancer and a gal I knew was selected to be on the Cheerios boxes as an Ambassador. I wanted to help her raise money and I started making craft trinkets for her to give away with every donation she received. The trinkets were so popular that we decided to make a business with them. We developed a line and marketed it through our sales reps to boutique shops. Eventually, I wanted to teach others how to make the items we were selling and here we are :)

I can tell you this - there is nothing more powerful than hearing from a customer on Etsy who tells us that we have changed their life with the ideas and know-how that we shared. This is why we do what we do. It used to be the feeling of happiness when someone loved a knit they wore or had their child photographed in. Now it is so much bigger than that. When you can play a part in inspiring someone or help someone start a successful business it really doesn't get much better than that.

Thank so much for reading our story and thanks for stopping by to see us.

    Yup, he is the rock behind this shop. He is the encouragement to always be better than the day before. He also runs TrueBlueBtq on Etsy where he sells coasters, mugs and memory lockets.

    Yes, this guy is the most loyal member here at Purple Mountain. He never oversleeps or comes in late. He is obedient (trained) and listens to all directions, even though he thinks he is the Boss. He alerts us to all deliveries with enthusiasm.

  • LittleB

    Helper

    This is our son (when he was a baby). We also have a knit business and he was our 'attention getter' and 'model'. He is a teenager now but he is still the happy helper he always was. (He's not keen about having his current photo here.)

Frequently asked questions

When will my order ship?

We process orders as they come in and ship daily by USPS. Our pick up is generally around 9am EST. If your order comes in we try our best to get it out as we stay caught up 24 hours a day :) Please check our banner and announcements for updates.

Can I have my order ship FedEx instead of USPS?

By all means. Please add a note in the box at checkout. Our turnaround time may increase by 1 (or 2) days because we will have to drop the parcel off at a FedEx drop off.

Do you ship on Saturdays?

YES!! We ship every Saturday unless we post an announcement on our banner on our home page. Please check to be sure - but 99.9% of the time we do ship on Saturdays.

What countries do you sell to?

If you are having trouble ordering please reach out to us. We recently ship larger orders to the EU by request due to laws which make it a risk for us. If you are trying to place an order but are having trouble please send us a convo and we will research the situation to see if we can ship to you.

What is your policy regarding Safety and Legal?

Our items are intended for adult purchases and to be used by adults. Small pieces can be a choking hazard to young children. We sell only to adults over 18 years of age. By purchasing you agree to keep items away from children and indemnify seller of any and all liability. Buyer agrees to release Seller from any liability when making the decision to purchase. By making the decision to purchase our items you agree to be responsible for all laws in your state and country applicable to the safety and handling of the products and all other legal issues that may arise. Please ask questions if specific issues are not stated in my listing. We recommend that you request a sample to test. Thank you.

Can you explain the measurements of your craft supplies?

MEASUREMENTS - Craft pieces have descriptive measurements which can vary within the craft industry. Some people refer to items in inches and others talk in millimeters. Often times, for example, 1 inch and 25 mm are used interchangeably even though they are not the same exact measurement. We try very hard to offer items that work together and we can not be responsible for slight variations in size descriptions. 16mm trays work with 16mm glass, for example, We welcome your questions and will not be responsible for dissatisfaction resulting from artisan characteristics perceived by the buyer as flaws. Please request a sample to test. We want everyone to be happy with their purchases and look forward to long relationships with our buyers :)

Why do you refer to your craft supplies as 'artisan'?

Many of our items are made in China. Items are made in batches and many are handmade. Each batch can vary slightly in color and other features. As artisan crafters ourselves - for over 25 years - we inspect each batch of inventory as it arrives and we try to add comments and updates to the listings. It is hard for us to know which batch each customer has had previously. Please, please ask us if you have any questions. We will try our best to work with you to get what you are searching for :)

Do you offer discounts and coupons?

Absolutely!!! We do set our pricing as everyday low pricing because we understand that many buyers like to order in small quantities. We do have a bulk section for listings 100+ which do often times have better rates so please check out that category and see if those items may work for you. Feel free to shoot over a convo and I can check inventory and see if I can offer a discount on something you may not see in the bulk section. Our goal really is not to run out of things :) without sacrificing on offering great quality craft components at reasonable pricing.
Coupon codes are on our Banner and/or in our announcements under the banner. One coupon per order. Coupons must be inputted by the buyer.

Do you offer tracking, Insurance, and Shipping Upgrades?

Yes - you can find tracking located on your receipt in Etsy. There is a link for updates right on your receipt (upper right corner) for your convenience. Your receipt is found under "YOU" "PURCHASES".
We also have a listing on our featured area under the banner for upgrades.
