About Us...

The Silver Penny is an online only, family owned and operated at-home business dedicated to providing unique, all natural toys, dolls, kits & craft supplies, personalized gifts, tooth fairy items, recommending some of the best children and parenting books and whatever else strikes our fancy!  If you’ve ever done business with us, you’ll quickly discover our commitment to personal and friendly customer service, too.  Whenever you log onto our website, it’s like we’re opening the front door and inviting you into our home.  We will do what we can to make you to feel welcome and comfortable! 

We don’t have a large staff -- it’s just Kathryn, her husband and daughter.  When you call our phone number, don’t be surprised when one of us answers with “hello,” because the number is also our home telephone line.  We may not be big and fancy, but we do our best to make available the finest and most interesting products at prices that are reasonable.  We invite you to compare (and for your sake, we do often), because whenever we offer a toy or other item that may be found at a higher price at bigger shops, we offer it for less or we won’t sell it at all!  (It must be the Yankee in us that makes us thrifty with a coin -- even if it’s not ours!)

Kathryn is the heart of our business.  She loves to sew, make dolls, design new kits and write patterns.  Also, she is the creator of all the customized gifts that can be ordered on our website.  Her creative imagination never stops.  She will dream up wonderful things in the middle of the night that somehow magically come true in daylight!  Much of her at-home time is spent creating delightful and beautiful things in her small sewing and craft room, but amazingly, also she finds time to fill orders with a personal touch and answer emails!  Her husband and daughter lend a hand whenever it’s needed, so it’s truly a loving, family operation.

Thank you for visiting our home today.  We hope you enjoy browsing through our “rooms” discovering the treasures we have hidden throughout!  Please feel free to contact us by email or phone with questions.  If you get our answering machine, please leave a message with your name, phone number and where you’re calling from (we’re on the East Coast and we don’t want to call our West Coast customers at 6:00am!).  We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Have a wonderful day!
