We Bought The Farm

After many years of urban farming (backyard chickens, indoor herb gardens and vegetables in the backyard), we found a house in the country and it was love at first sight.

Our farmhouse is 100 years old, and there is a log cabin on the property that was lived in before the house was built (now it's barely big enough to fit my gardening tools). The gardens have been tended for decades, and we're doing our best to do right by the land.

We have 30 chickens, 2 goats (although Tinkerbell is pregnant, so more coming in spring!), 2 cats (plus the neighbor cat that thinks he lives here), and tens of thousands of honeybees. Plus a handful of kids and two adults.

thank you for visiting sydneypaige on etsy! i hand knit and crochet baby gifts and children's clothing and toys -- practical to wear every day, lovely to dress up in, and sturdy enough to be passed down for generations. i'm hoping you'll find something here that's the perfect gift just as it is, or you'll find some inspiration to work together with me on a custom project for your loved one ~~

i use only the highest quality materials - natural wool, silk, cashmere, cotton, and bamboo. all of my items are made here in my hometown of bellingham, wasinghton, in the beautiful pacific northwest.

my goal is to make your experience to be as pleasant and memorable, so please tell me how i can best assist you! i aim to be as exceptional at customer service as i am at knitting! :-)

my current knitting wait time is: 6-8 weeks (see below for rush fees)
this is the approximate amount of time it will take me, based on my current workload, to knit any custom item(s) you order. it does not include shipping time.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
i think you'll find that my return and refund policy goes above and beyond what you'll find anywhere else. i want you to be happy, and i'll go to as close to the ends of the earth as i can to make sure it happens.

i stand behind my skills, and my products. so if you are not happy AT ANY TIME, please return your purchase to me and i will happily give you a FULL REFUND. in fact, i'll refund your money as soon as you decide to return it, and I WILL COVER ALL SHIPPING {USPS first class where available}.

this leaves you with none of the risk ~ i want you to be ecstatic with the color, size and feel of your purchased items!

(non-small-print: this assumes the item has not been worn or washed, other than tried on, of course)

as far as etsy feedback is concerned, i will go ahead and leave you positive etsy feedback after two weeks if i haven't heard from you, assuming you are happy with your item!
payment is due at checkout, and it's easiest for me to receive payment via paypal. having said that, please convo me if you have about a special circumstance you'd like to discuss ~~
my policy is to ship the day of, or at the latest, the day after, the payment clears. i use either usps priority mail or first class, so you can expect to receive your package in a very timely manner. if you need your package expedited, please convo me for prices.

i wrap all my items carefully and beautifully before i package them (along with a FREE GIFT)... making it perfect to send directly as a gift if you wish. i am also happy to include a handwritten note with whatever message you choose - please convo me if you would like me to include this with your package (including what you'd like the note to say) ~

if you need to RUSH your custom order

you can find my current knitting wait time at the top of this policies page. i'm often faster than my estimated wait time, but i'd much rather exceed your expectations than fall short! if you have a deadline that won't work with my knitting timeline, please convo me to see if i am able to expedite your order in time.

because of the extra work and long nights involved in making this happen, i charge a "rush fee" based on the listing amount (it's just an easy way for you and me to estimate the complexity of the order being rushed). here's the table i use to calculate rush fees:

listing totals $50 or less : 20% rush fee
listing totals $51 - $100 : 15% rush fee
listing totals $100 or more : 10% rush fee

{ if you need it rushed even more than that, you can also pay for USPS express mail so that once i've knit as quickly as my two hands can knit, it will ship to you as quickly as the postal folks can get it to you! :-) please convo me for specifics }

the holidays are coming!!!

i love the holiday season. gift wrapping is FREE (i use natural, beautiful wrapping: kraft boxes, tissue paper, festive washi tape and ribbon). i'm happy to enclose a handwritten card, as well! please order early, though - i'll post custom order and shipping deadlines as they come closer. happy holidays!
Additional policies and FAQs
i highly appreciate and value feedback from my customers! it provides valuable information for people browsing my shop, and it also lets me know that the item has arrived safely on your doorstep and that you're happy with your handmade items. if for any reason you are less than satisfied, please contact me and I will try to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. thank you so much! ~~
