Working with our members at Uppertunity, we make items to sell by upcycling and recycling materials into finished products. We do this to eliminate waste as well as provide a skill and wellbeing development platform. Profits made help to fund our different services.
Items can be paid via PayPal, bank transfer or cash, and can be delivered or picked up.
We sell items:
- At our main base (Uppertunity, The Circle)
- At our café (Serendipities)
- On our Etsy page (https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Uppmakes)
- On our Gumtree Page (https://www.gumtree.com/profile/accounts/109e81fb670d930fabbc22aeb805ee2f )
We make various smaller items including worry pets, clothes, bags, hair accessories, gifts and more using repurposed materials.
