About SmileyBoy

Sales 24,286
On Etsy since 2008

Smileyboy is run by a girl.

So, back in 2006, I joined etsy. It was the first year one could join etsy. I sold jewelry under the name potatoface. The shop was named for my adorable 2 year old whom I called PotatoFace. A name she has since outgrown, so thankfully I didn't put it on the birth certificate.

Also In 2006 I had my second child, who as an infant smiled a lot. So, 13 months later when I needed to destash some things, I named my second branch after him. Smileyboy.
He's since grown, but still has the smile, so the name has stuck.

I did the destash thing for a bit, and then had two more children and was quite busy managing the four active social schedules and didn't have a chance to do anything crafty really.

Except buy more beads. Because, man I love beads. Now I have thousands. And I keep buying more. But, I just like looking at them and sorting and counting. I've kind of stopped making because I realize I love the potential of a supply more than the finished product.

In 2013 I reopened Smileyboy as a chance to connect the potential in the supply to the potential in your creative hearts and brains. I seriously love selling beads and thinking of all the cool things you can make with them. I love when my customers send pictures of what they've made for me to see.

I know as your bead seller, my roll in your creative process is very small. But, I love that in my very small way I am part of the creation of some very cool craftiness.

So, thanks for coming by and taking the time to read this. And thanks for shopping at Smileyboy!

Frequently asked questions
Are these beads safe for children?

I let my children use them, be around them, sort them, and play games with them. I would not let my children use the beads if I thought there was a risk. If I find out about a safety risk in the beads you bought I will inform you immediately.

However, I haven't personally paid money to have them tested for any chemicals or lead to guarantee them safe for children. By buying these beads you assume that risk, I cannot be held liable. They are not recommended for children.

Also, beads are not candy even though they sometimes look like candy. Choking is a real and dangerous thing, don't put beads in your mouth. I am not liable if you choose to eat beads. Talk to your kids if they mouth things, to prevent tragedy. And enjoy the beads!

When will my item ship?

I am currently, typically, shipping Monday through Friday. Because of recent changes in the world, I have switched from packing orders in the morning to packing at night, to allow for package pickup.

So, typically orders placed by about 6pm EST will go out the next morning. Orders placed later than that will go out the following morning.

The main exception to this would be Sundays and holidays, and that occasional day where it doesn't happen because I am just one person. I will always do my best to get it out quickly though.

I can not ship payment pending orders until payment clears.

Prearranged special orders will also not go out right away, but on the schedule discussed when setting up the order.
