Kid-friendly yarn darner: Ethically sourced/secondhand supply blunt tipped sewing needle. Gently used and/or new old stock, metal or plastic
$2.50 – $6.00
This listing is for one secondhand sourced yarn darner with a blunt tip – a great starter needle for kiddos, lovely for mending medium-to-chunky knit socks & sweaters, and likely a perfect fit if you’re doing that plastic-grid crafty stuff that nursing home grandmas used to stitch and sell in the common room display case. We’ve got new old stock metal needles and a small accumulation of the plastic tipped ones. We prefer metal, but we also remember being four and accidentally sewing our project to our pajama pants – which is why these particular metal needles were such an exciting find: they’re easy to thread AND safe for pajamas.
You’re likely aware that almost all lifecycle emissions for durable goods are generated before those products reach point of sale — hence the quantifiable climate-preserving benefit of choosing to extend the useful life of existing goods rather than purchasing new ones (roughly 90% fewer emissions – often more!).
You may be surprised to learn (as we were — check our discovery at shopjunket.com/data!) that freight shipping emissions are surprisingly low on a per-finished-product basis (unlike travel for humans or the compounded -pre-manufacturing transit emissions generated to move raw materials prior to distillation, concentration, etc.), as long as they don’t travel to you on a plane.
We set our shipping rates to accommodate the minimum ground shipping charge for your shipping zone. If we can ship your order via first class mail without involving flight-based transit (typically possible within about 250 miles of Minneapolis based on USPS dynamic shipping zones), we will do so- and we’ll gladly refund the overage. This is where shopping local (local-er?) can have specific advantages when reuse products are available closer to home. If you live in Mpls proper and would prefer to come and grab your order, please message us for a shipping discount code before purchase to make sure we know you don’t want us to mail it. 🙂
If you’re still reading, thank you. And, if this is your first visit, welcome to Junket!
