Uncommon Goods...and cuff love

I'm not sure how long ago I fell upon this awesome goods site, but since I can remember I've been peeking at their shop. I know several artists they feature and sell, perhaps that's where I first found them. I love watching my art friends grow wings and get to be a part of something so unique. This site offers artists an amazing opportunity to seen by a global audience. Amazing.
If you aren't familiar with this site I highly recommend you visit it here. Their story is truly one of those American businesses you want to succeed.  Here's a little background: "Uncommon Goods was founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is an privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique designs and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment and without harm to animals or people. We run all our operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, including our warehouse where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. We make it our mission to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what we sell is made by hand. Most of the products we carry are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of our entire collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. At the core of our company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is our responsibility to use our business to impact the world in a positive way."
I really love cruising their site for unique gifts. You can literally find everything from personalized cutting boards to jewelry like my birch cuff above. There is literally something for all ages of the family from anniversary gifts here to personalized gifts here you can make your next gift giving truly unique. And help support a thriving artist in the process. So....the cuff. Is that dreamy or what?  Reminds me so much of my favorite book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. The sweet artist that crafts the cuffs can personalize for you as well. My friend Valerie received one from her Hubby for Christmas. It says on it V + A right by the heart. Swoooooon right? Wouldn't this be a great gift to give while proposing? Or as an anniversary gift? Best idea ever.
So if you'd be interested in purchasing one of these beautiful cuffs head on over to their site. It comes packaged so lovely with the tiny branch bow. The details...something I am always looking at as an artist and appreciate. So thank you Uncommon Goods for gathering such a lovely collection of wares for us to purchase. Your site inspires me to look at buying different.
