spend some time @ uncommon goods
I've long admired the items that Uncommon Goods sells, so when they asked me to share some of my favorite items, I was happy to oblige. What I love about them is that they not only sell beautiful and unique objects, but they also incorporate a lot of handmade and fair trade into their product line. You can even filter search results by recycled or handmade!
They have gifts and special items for just about anyone you might need to shop for, and certainly you'll find things that you'll love! But since this is about some of the things that I would choose, let's jump in!
I'm not a mom, but I'd like to think that any mother who appreciates handmade or creating their own handmade would enjoy this hand-embroidered zipper case (find it here) or a stoneware bowl (find it here) to hold yarn while knitting or crocheting. Or perhaps if you're a mom looking for something you can do with you kids, the book shown at the top of this post would be a good fit (find it here). It's filled with crafts and activities that you can work on together!
But those are just a few of the Mother's Day items that you'll find. See more at Uncommon Goods.
Their Home & Garden section is also full of fun things to make your home stand out. Or perhaps more importantly, they'll make your home "you." See the full collection here, but I especially like the Today is the Day wall hanging (find it here...it's 8x10, which I think is a great size for something like this), and the Neon Dinosaur Planters (find them here...but hurry, because they're discontinued!)
Finally, I have a confusing grouping of items. You see, I found them here, in their "For Kids" section, and I don't know about you, but all of these look like things that I would want! I may not be your typical adult, but food pillows and random acts of kindness cards? (find them here and here) All natural paints? (Find them here) Blocks that you can build robots and monsters with? (Here!) I'll take one of each!
This weekend, spend some time looking around Uncommon Goods. While you're there, visit their blog and explore some of stories of their makers. I guarantee you'll see some great things. Things that are both uncommon and good.
Thanks, Uncommon Goods, for sponsoring this post! To my readers: I was compensated for this post, but the opinions I share are all my own.
