About oppARTunities

Sales 12
On Etsy since 2020

What is an “oppARTunity?”

“OppARTunities” are unique, eco-friendly, innovative art pieces that celebrate the unexpected potential in things that get piled up, broken, or thrown away.
Materials used to create the items sold here are found/collected in and around the St. Louis, Missouri area unless otherwise noted in the item’s description. Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions or custom orders, I’d love to chat with you.
The oppARTunities are knocking, all you need to do is answer!

    Owner, Creator

    Creative mastermind? Perhaps. Completely bonkers? DEFINITELY. I’m a full-time student studying speech-pathology, but in my free time I find unwanted things and make them into something unique and beautiful. I hope you enjoy this art as much as I do!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Due to the nature of using recycled and reclaimed materials, no guarantees can be made on the timeliness of custom orders if the materials are not already in my workshop or provided by the customer.
If you have a sentimental piece that you would like me to turn into something, we can arrange for it to be shipped to me (or picked up, if in the St. Louis area). I will ship you back the finished piece incorporating your sentimental item!
If a custom order is more of a concept and less specific, arrangements can be made for the custom piece to be created sooner, since I can likely use the materials I have in stock.

Care instructions

On the off-chance that an item gets damaged (either during shipping or after being received) there are two options.
First, the item can be returned to me (within two weeks of the delivery date) and reshipped after it is fixed.
Otherwise, contact oppartunities4sale@gmail.com and the creator will provide the customer with simple and specific instructions on how to repair the item.

In general, items should be cleaned by dry dusting only. If necessary, wipe with a mild non-citrus and non-vinegar cleaner. Vinegar and citrus often eat away at epoxy resin or speed up its natural yellowing process.

What about COVID-19?

Coronavirus spreads mainly through physical contact, not through touching an infected surface (a package or its contents). Medical professionals have stated that COVID-19 traveling through the mail is highly unlikely, but just in case, I am taking a few extra safety precautions. I wash my hands before packaging each order and disinfect your purchase and the shipping materials with Clorox wipes or Lysol.
I am not currently creating any paper or softgood items, as I am unable to disinfect the materials completely before shipping them.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping and packaging is available on request. Just like normal shipping from oppARTunities, all packaging materials are recycled (empty boxes, newspaper, plastic grocery bags, etc.) Each purchase will be custom matched with a hand-stamped business card. If gift wrapping is selected, the purchase will be placed inside a sheer gold bag (with a coordinating hand-stamped business card) and tied with a bow before being padded and packaged in a hand-cut cardboard box. There will be no purchase receipt in the box for gift purchases, so as not to show the price of the item you are intending as a gift. Instead, print your purchase receipt from Etsy or contact me at oppartunities4sale@gmail.com
