Wow Spring has really sprung and with this beautiful season comes a bevy of celebratory events like Mother's Day, bridal showers and weddings, Father's day, graduations and oh the list could go on. For me when it comes to purchasing a gift for any of these wonderful occasions, this process will often prove to be a daunting experience, sometimes to the point of absolute dread. I suppose this is because I really do love giving gifts that are not your mundane, store bought, run of the mill type of present. I adore unique and handmade items, you know the ones that make a bit of a bold statement. But alas, I typically end up having a difficult time finding such special gifts.
Enter Uncommon Goods. UncommonGoods.com is a "privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people". The Brooklyn based company operates out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal and their mission is "to support and provide a platform for artists and designers". Handcrafted and unique gifts...oh baby this could not be more up my alley!!! Actually I spent hours at my computer just scrolling through the almost endless collections of incredible products Uncommon Goods has to offer. Here are a few of my faves from this remarkable on-line store.
You know Mother's day is just around the corner!!!
1. Elephant and Her Little Peanuts Necklace (love this piece...hint hint Mr. Rosemary Lane!)
