Drooling over these things from the latest uncommon goods catalog.
In case you are wondering, uncommon goods didn’t ask me to recommend their products. I just want to remember these lovely things, even if I don’t own any of them.
“Four Seasons Mugs” are handmade, one for each season, even a special indentation for your thumb. $98
“Hidden Message Jewelry” are beautiful handcrafted hinged pendants. $175
“Mother and Daughter Letter Book” – there are others for couples, sisters, and friends too. $35
“Hand-Painted Ceramic Vases” $28-$32
“Tree of Life Globes” are hand blown of recycled glass in Canada. Each features an interior glass trunk that branches out to support vibrant splashes of color. $45
“Handmade Glass House Mezuzah” OK this one I’m thinking about purchasing. New house, new mezuzah? I love the colors. $50
“You Keep Me On Course” necklace has two charms. The first is the image of a sailboat. The second charm displays the message, “You keep me on course,” engraved in clear, cursive script. Hand cast and crafted in Maine. The problem with this is that I would want to give it to my hubby, who totally keeps me sane. I doubt he would wear it though! There is also “you are my anchor” and “you are my shining star.” $95
“Loved Locket” $40
Uncommon goods’ products are handmade and recycled and made by artists. They are a B Corporation, a non-profit that helps you understand the social and environmental impact of your purchases. At checkout, you can select a non-profit (American Forests protects our trees and plants new ones; AmeriCares supports victims of disasters; City Harvest strives to end hunger in NYC; RAINN is the largest anti-sexual violence organization) and they will donate $1.
