Nothing From Nothing: Art & Upcycled Gifts for the Clever Consumer!

I believe everything is connected, having both an origin and destination. In other words, all materials come from, and go, somewhere. It is our responsibility to make wise consumer choices that have as little negative impact on people and the planet as possible. This ethic is evident in my art and homemade gifts as I adhere strictly to one fundamental principle for all I create: use recycled materials wherever possible. Therefore, all materials used, with few exceptions, were removed from the waste stream or obtained second hand.

My artistic endeavors include drawing, painting, mixed media & assemblage. I also offer found treasures as well as a variety of handmade upcycled gifts, all made with care, thought, and love. In addition, all sales support my medical fund as I am a disabled artist suffering from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Thank you for visiting my shop! Happy perusing!

Greetings and thank you for visiting the NothingFromNothing Shop!
Unique art and upcycled gifts delivered to your doorstep made with love, craftsmanship, and sustainability in mind. Thank you for doing your part as a conscious consumer! I want you to be absolutely satisfied with your experience and in love with your purchase, so please take a gander at the shop policies below:

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Cancellations, returns, and refunds will be issued on a case-by-case basis. I strive to make each handmade item lovely and unique. Your satisfaction is extremely important to me! Please contact me right away if there's a problem with your order and I'll make it right!

If a return request is accepted and you received the correct item, you may always return it at your cost. The refund will include only the price of the item, not the shipping and transaction fees. Refunds will be issued as soon as the item arrives in the condition it was issued and in proper packaging.

Custom orders, i.e., items made differently from those in the shop and made especially for you, cannot be refunded. But we may still find a solution acceptable to both parties.
PayPal is my preferred method of payment. If you don't have an account, payment can be made through PayPal with a credit or debit card. I also happily accept money orders. Please mail your payment within three business days of purchase. If you would like to pay with an alternative method, contact me for details. Please note that orders do not ship until payment has cleared. Your purchase will then be shipped within 1-2 business days.
Shipping costs are reduced when combining orders, ask me in advance and I will refund or reduce shipping for multiple orders :)

My shipping methods are reliable. Every precaution in packaging is taken to ensure that your purchase arrives safely to you.
To keep your shipping charges reasonable, I ship via USPS Priority or First Class Mail. If you would like to upgrade your shipping method to Express just let me know and I'll get right back to you with a shipping quote. I ship quickly in the United States as well as internationally.

In the rare instance a parcel is lost in the country of the buyer, a refund is not possible. I will file a non delivery complaint which can take several weeks.
After the result of this complaint it can be decided whether a new shipment can be issued.

You may decide to insure your parcel for an extra $3. If the parcel is lost and the postal company issues the insurance money, you will get a full refund. This may take 6-10 weeks however. If you would like to purchase said insurance, please tell me before purchase and I will make a special listing for you.

If a parcel returns due to wrong address or "not claimed", and a second shipment is requested, the buyer must pay the shipment fee again and the parcel will be sent a second time.

Returns and Refunds will be issued on a case-by-case basis.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom drawings, art, etc., can be requested, I welcome new artistic challenges and ideas!

Please feel free to leave me your feedback :)
