You can’t go wrong with a gift from Uncommon Goods
Seriously, you can’t go wrong. Uncommon Goods is an online marketplace for real artists and crafters. Think of it as your favorite art show, but online, affordable, and easily accessible.
Another reason I personally recommend shopping from Uncommon Goods is because the company is eco-friendly. They use, and encourage artists to use, recycled or sustainable materials whenever possible. They choose environmentally friendlier packing materials and print the catalog on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paper. Also, all products are leather, feather, and fur-free.
Every dollar we spend is a choice. You’ve probably heard the phrase, “vote with your dollar”. Well, for me, I love being able to spend my dollar with companies like Uncommon Goods because they are committed to helping artists grow while also being sustainable.
