Hey, I'm Jocelyn (she/her)!
A little bit about me:
- 24 year old living in MA
- There are likely 239874 thoughts going on my brain at one time
- I wake up every day with the urge to crochet
- Surprise me with food and I'm your friend forever
In May of 2020, I graduated in the midst of the pandemic - with no job prospects. I had been crocheting for a few years, and after a good while of figuring out what the heck I wanted to do, I opened up The Cozy Tangerine.
The Cozy Tangerine specializes in crochet clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. We're currently based in Norton, MA!
Did you know that crochet can't be done by a machine, unlike knitting?
So that means that every single crochet piece you see in our shop is completely handmade by me. And just me.
The Cozy Tangerine is a one-woman business - so from creating the physical pieces that you'll receive in the mail to writing emails and designing the website and packaging orders - it's all done by me! (Which is why I giggle sometimes when I use the word "we" because you and I both know, it's just me). It's a lot of work, but I'm passionate about what I do, and I wouldn't change it for the world. (If you wanna make my day, buy me a coffee! I'll love you forever).
In 2022, I began offering other pieces created by fellow small business owners in my shop, like these air fresheners! I would love to continue supporting other small businesses, so if you would like to feature your products in my shop, please fill out this contact form!
Now I dedicate 90% of my time to growing my business.
I grew up in Mansfield, and now I work out of my "office space" aka my bedroom doubling as a workspace in Norton, MA. That's where I get all of your orders made, packaged, and ready to go to their forever homes!
I've always been crafty, and now it truly makes me so incredibly happy to be able to create fun things for you all. I wasn't sure how The Cozy Tangerine would do - but now we've fulfilled over 700 orders (in addition to attending local markets and fairs!)
I'm so happy you're here and I want to thank you for choosing to support The Cozy Tangerine. Seriously, your support means the entire world to me.
Some fun (or weird?) facts:
- I danced for 10+ years and have never broken a bone
- I've been to Lebanon, Italy, Mexico, and St. Martin - but I've never even traveled to the U.S. west coast
- I've been vegan for 4+ years
- I'm diagnosed with OCD and have pretty bad anxiety (which is why I cannot *just* watch TV or a movie - I have to be doing something else at the same time, like crocheting).
- My all-time favorite meal is buffalo chik'n mac n cheese (vegan, of course) - but give me anything made with pasta, and I'll eat it
What is the meaning of 'The Cozy Tangerine'?
The Cozy Tangerine is a reflection of what the brand offers - all of the items in the shop are made by Jocelyn who loves to cuddle up with her fuzzy blankets, her giant cup of coffee and crochet for hours on end. The 'cozy' clearly speaks for itself. The 'tangerine' reflects Jocelyn's love for food and one of her favorite colors.
What kind of yarn do you use?
None of our products are made with wool, silk, or other types of animal fibers. We mostly work with cotton and acrylic yarn! All of our items are vegan-friendly.
I got my order in recycled/reused packaging. Why?
Decreasing our environmental footprint is extremely important to us, which is why you may receive your package in a reused Amazon bubble mailer or see other packaging materials (like tissue paper, ribbon, twine, etc.) in your package. If you receive your order in a new package, they are either 100% compostable mailers (made from corn and plant starch materials) from the brand KTOB, or they are "Imperfect" mailers from Magical Mailers- meaning they are fully usable mailers with minor imperfections (slightly misaligned prints, mailers that arrived less than 3.15 mil thick, etc.) that would have otherwise been discarded. If you can, please reuse any and all packaging materials before disposing!
How long does shipping take?
We’ve been BLOWN away by your support these past few months! We’re getting new orders every day. Please allow 1-2 weeks for your order to be processed.
All orders are shipped with USPS First Class Mail, which means that you can expect your delivery 1-3 business days after it has shipped.
*Please note that USPS shipping will likely take longer due to COVID-19.
Do you offer free shipping?
All orders $100 and over are eligible for free US shipping. No coupon code is required!
When will I receive my tracking information?
When your order has been mailed, you will automatically receive an email with your USPS tracking number which you can use to track your order. Please read ourshipping policy here.
Can I return an item or get a refund?
At this time we do not accept returns or refunds. If for some reason you receive your order and something is broken or missing, please reach out to us and we can figure out an appropriate resolution, which may include a partial or full refund, or a replacement based on the situation.
