UncommonGoods offers a unique selection of products that’ll fit every aspect of your life, including dining, home décor, and desktop accents. Looking for a gift? Then pick up some patchwork furniture or trendy silverware for the friend who needs more funk in her downscale apartment or dowdy home. You’ll buy knowing your purchase directly supports the artisan who crafted the merchandise. Some independent online stores offer more innovative search functions, or out-there techno wizardly, but UncommonGoods informs buyers of “the quality, cultural significance, production method and style of the product.” At UncommonGoods, you’ll find bowls made out of LP records, slang flashcards, and inspirational paperweights. Here’s one fave: “I Am Not a Paper Cup,” a porcelain cup designed to look otherwise.
