Goldfinch started from a love of design, an interest in environmentalism, and a senior year requirement.

I created Goldfinch for my senior project, an independent study project done in all senior year English classes at my school. I had been fascinated by Etsy ever since I first discovered it a few years ago, and I loved that it gave arts & crafts enthusiasts like me the opportunity to bring their creations to the rest of the world. The senior project is all about learning something new, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to learn about running a small online business.
I knew I would need to narrow my focus a little bit, so I decided to center my shop around a theme of environmentalism. All Goldfinch products are made from recycled materials, and all proceeds benefit Environment New Jersey, a statewide environmental advocacy organization. Goldfinch Green Design is named after New Jersey's state bird, the goldfinch, since the sale of my products helps protect New Jersey's environment.
Goldfinch will only be open for a limited time; the shop will likely close sometime this summer. So get your Goldfinch products while you can, and "like" us on Facebook using the link at right!

Every Goldfinch purchase benefits Environment New Jersey, an advocacy organization working to protect the environment in the Garden State.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I accept payment through PayPal only.

If you know me personally and would prefer to buy a Goldfinch product with cash, let me know. This transaction would have to take place in person, not over Etsy.
Goldfinch currently only ships within the US.

Since most Goldfinch pieces are made-to-order, they may take longer to ship. Allow about 1-2 weeks for all shipped items.

If you know me personally and live in the Westfield, NJ area, I would be happy to skip shipping and deliver the order to you myself. You will still have to pay for shipping when you make a purchase, but in this case, the shipping money will go to Environment New Jersey instead.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are final sale.

If you know me personally and have a problem with your order, contact me via Facebook or in person and I will see what I can do.
Additional policies and FAQs
Almost all Goldfinch products are made to order and are therefore totally customizable. Please note any color and size requests when you place your order.

I am a high school senior who created Goldfinch as part of a school project. Therefore, the quality of Goldfinch pieces might not be as high as those of other, more established Etsy sellers. Production and shipping may also be slower than the norm, since I am still in school. So cut me some slack - after all, the money goes to charity.
