The holidays are around the corner and if you are like me, you want to find just the right gift for everyone on your list!
The inspiring story of Uncommon Goods ~
The folks at Uncommon Goods wrote to me to introduce themselves and I am super happy that they did!
” In 1999, our founder Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was captivated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people behind them. He saw there was a significant public demand for beautiful design.”
“We attempt to minimize our environmental impact, working with our artists to use sustainable or recycled materials whenever possible, choosing environmentally friendlier packing materials, and printing our catalog on Forest Stewardship Council [FSC] certified and recycled paper.”
Uncommon Goods focuses on the artists and their stories and supports the creative community. I am super impressed with the message they send and their great big heart. What I loved most about the site is the unique gift items that they have listed. Although it may sound repetitive, these gifts are not typical, they are creative and different, not “common” at all.
