Item details

Boye produced hooks with this marking style from the 1930s through the 1940s. They must have made a gazillion of them! Being one of the older styles, they remain the most abundant.

These hooks show wear appropriate to their age. Some are stained, a few are a bit less than straight. I am a crocheter too, so be confident that I won't send you anything that I wouldn't use. (I turn the truly horrid ones into wind chimes :-)

Sorry, the awesome Display Case is not for sale.

Make your choice through the variations menu
Single hooks sizes 00 - 14 check menu for available sizes

Small lots of 3 hooks in consecutive sizes available in a separate listing.

The complete set of 16 hooks is available in this listing

As you can see in the photos, I have multiples of some sizes and very few of others. If you need multiples of one size, please CONVO me first.

Hook side markings: # Boye #
Back side markings: MADE IN U.S.A. (small print)

Again, the display case in not for sale.

Thanks & Blessings

Questions about shipping? You can add items to your cart to see what the shipping fees are, without making a commitment to buy. You can always remove items before you complete the transaction.

Most of the listings in this shop use Etsy's calculated shipping which automatically combines the weight and dimensions of everything in your cart. Shipping upgrades are available at checkout.

A few of the more expensive items are set to Priority Mail. This applies to domestic shipping only. International orders will ship first class with insurance.

All orders ship with tracking.

Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
  • Items on sale
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
This shop carries mostly used and/or vintage items. Any flaws or defects are clearly described in the listing. Please examine photos carefully. I take extreme care in packaging and shipping to ensure your purchase arrives in the condition you expect. All sales are final. I am no longer accepting returns after receiving items that were destroyed before being returned to me.

This is the really yucky part. I try to do a really good job so you won't have any problems with your purchase. If something goes wrong, please give me a chance to address it.

Buyer has 7 days after the receipt of the purchase to request a cancellation. I always use tracking so there is a record of receipt. Purchase must be returned to me within 7 days of my agreement to accept the return. Unauthorized returns will not be accepted. Items received beyond 7 days are subject to a restocking fee of 1% per day. Example: 1 day late = 1%, 9 days late = 9%. I strongly recommend you use tracking.

My refund policy is based upon the Golden Rule. It is what I as a buyer would consider fair.

1. The seller (that's me) made an error, sent the wrong item, forgot part of the order, etc then the seller makes it right with no additional cost to the buyer. Seller will replace wrong item, buyer keeps all merchandise, no returns required.

2. The buyer (that's you) made an error, ordered the wrong item, changed their mind, etc then the buyer is responsible for returning the items to the seller. Buyer pays all shipping. Seller refunds purchase price (Less applicable late fees as outlined above) upon receipt of items returned in the same condition they were originally shipped. ***addtional 40% restocking fee for return of any custom item or special order***

3. Postal problems. Tracking number is ALWAYS provided. The postal service in the USA has never lost a package since I've opened my shops. A few orders have taken weeks longer than they should have but all have eventually arrived. Come on, admit it, you know that sellers can't control the workings of the postal service. Have patience.

Etsy is a marketplace, not a manufacturer. There are some large companies who use Etsy, but I'm not one of them. Again, for the record, this is a one woman shop. I simply cannot afford to offer unlimited free returns.

Questions? Please use the Etsy Convo system. I do not respond to outside emails.

For Your Information

What is the difference between NOS (new old stock) and OP (original package)?

•NOS indicates items that are unused, in the original package. I use this term only on items that are either in original sealed packages or that were sold to me as New Old Stock.

•OP these items *may* be NOS but I can't be certain. They are in the original packages but may have been used. These are often items in vinyl storage cases or on cardboard hanging tags.

Why does packaging matter?

•Many items such as double pointed needles have no markings on them. Items in the original packages provide information about the age and origin.

•Packaging is instrumental in helping me identify and correctly attribute the numerous used items that have no markings. There are subtle differences in shape, color and finish between different brands.

•Most makers have a preferred brand, based on these differences, and I want my customers to find that hook, needle or notion that they can't find any where else.

With the exception of Nancy's Knit Knacks, I do not have a wholesaler. Most of the items in this shop are from yard sales, thrift shops and online "picking." In most cases, I truly only have one of each item listed. If you don't see what you're looking for, check back in a few months.

I try to offer a broad selection to enable my customers to find that item they've been searching for.

This is a one woman shop, featuring used and vintage merchandise. My business practices are an expression of my faith and I try to do right by everyone.

That being said, I am neither a door mat, nor a punching bag. If you have a problem, please give me the opportunity to fix it first, before leaving neutral or negative feedback. I'm also mad as a hatter, no joke. So please don't poke the crazy lady.
