When and how will I receive my order?
Who makes these products?
Almost all items are made to order. We ask that you allow 2-4 weeks to complete your order. If you need it sooner, please contact me before your purchase to see if we can accomodate. Once made, we will ship your item right away. If you are local, we may be able to arrange for you to pick-up or us to deliver your item if time or weight is a factor.
How do I customize my product?
Because our items are so customized, we need direct communication. Some of us prefer email, others prefer phone calls to gather details to design your items. Contact me through the page above and I'll link you with the artist. If you have special requests for customization or an entirely customized product where prices vary, please reach out to the artist before making your purchase. I will add an item matching your price so you may pay correctly through the site. This also ensures your creation can be comepleted.
How do I know I will get a quality product?
Everything my friends or I create for YouniqueG.E.O. is made by hand with love and attention to detail. We do not mass produce anything; and, we're thankfully not thoughtless machines. We do not claim our products are perfect....besides what does "perfect" really mean anyway? They are perfect to us. We love them and hope they bring joy to you and your loved ones. You have our promise our G.ifts and other products will be made at a quality and level of satisfaction we wish upon our own families and friends. However, seeing our art on a screen versus in person can be a different experience. I think it's better in person. However, If you are not satisfied you can return the item for a 100% refund. Or, we can change the item to your preference.
What do you mean you use upcycled materials?
I love to take old items or items seen as "trash" and make them beautiful again. I use such items as cardboard jewelry giftboxes, paper towel tubes, and throughoughly cleaned empty wine and liqour bottles. I also buy such things as old baskets, vases, and furniture to completely recreate. (I do not use items from trash receptacles). I use lots of new items, also. I notate in the details when I use upcycled products.
All items will be made by my friends and their friends, local artists I have relationships with, and me. Nothing is mass produced. All items will be at minimum slightly different than each other. Most are designed Youniquely, specifically to you or are one-of-a kind pieces of art. I'm new. I will be adding other artists soon. You can see profiles of current Artists on the Artists page.
Can I use your tutorials to sell items?
Sure. Spread the love. I get lots of inspiration from other artist's pictures or tutorials. Since I love one-of-a-kind items and art, I still create my own version.
Do you have a retail store I can come to?
In the future, I would like to own a shop where you can both buy and make Younique G.ifts. You can help support a local business and growth in the economy by making a purchase.
How do I contact you with a question?
Please go to the contact page and send a message. If you need to reach a particular artist (artisit name listed with product unless the artist is myself) I will put you in direct contact.

We love to give!
We alll love to give back. At the end of the year, I will announce how much YouniqueG.E.O. is donating to charity or an organization. Then, I'll have a craft making contest. The winner will choose where the donation will go: Alzheimer's Association, SPCA, CHKD for example.
