Let's Dare to Compare!

I've been scouting out items similar to those made by toddKnitz. I looked at the biggest names in designer department stores. You know the ones--Needless Markup, The Big Purple Dinosaur's--just to not name a couple. I also looked at some of the most exclusive of British Isles designers. Even if you can afford to shop in places that don’t use price tags, I assume that you are still averse to throwing away money. The Duke of Windsor may be able to afford Pringle’s of Scotland, but I would venture to say that their hand-knitters are no better than toddKnitz. Better paid, yes, but, then again, the Royal Family owns its own railway system and a bunch of palaces. I have a 1000 square foot house and a modest English cottage garden, and I put up my own pickles and preserves to save money.

In my search, I could hardly find hand-knitted goods at all. When I did, they were far more expensive than the prices at toddKnitz.

By shopping at toddKnitz, you will get items of the highest quality, designed for YOU, and proudly made by my two hands in the USA, at a better price than you could dream to find in NYC or the British Isles. You may get a designer label at those stores, but at what cost for something made en masse in China or Pakistan? If you need a label, try one that says "toddKnitz, made in the USA."

If you want Shetland wool, we can do that. If you want the world’s best cashmere, we can do that, too. If you want highest-quality wools made only in the USA—yep, just ask. In short, if you are going to spend a bunch of money on a knitted item that will last a very long time, doesn’t it make more sense to spend the money on the materials than the label?

I sell my goods because I love to knit and to design, and, of course, I need a little extra income. So, please, do look about for hand-made, one-of-a-kind goods that compare to those at toddKnitz, and feel free to let me know if you find a better deal.
