UncommonGoods {Holiday Giveaway}


UncommonGoods is an online market place which offers creatively designed , high quality merchandise at affordable prices.

At UncommonGoods you'll find a wide variety of unique, handmade and recycled gifts that are perfect for home, kids, pet-lovers, baby showers, moms, dads, weddings and those "just because" occasions. 


Finding UncommonGoods, was truly an revolutionary moment for me.  I have a lot of those hard to buy for people on my holiday list, you know the people who seem to have it all, or are just never fired-up about anything they receive.  Stumbling upon UncommonGoods gave me renewed faith that there is a place to shop, where there are  items that are bound to inspire.  A place with gifting ideas for everyone on that holiday list.   UncommonGoods has gifts for Dad and gifts for people who love wine all convenient to browse and available to purchase in one place!


I am always on the look for something exciting to place on my table as a centerpiece.  My table is in our kitchen, but it is quite visible when you enter through our back door.  One thing I've always wanted was a great fruit bowl, but have never found exactly what I had in mind.  Until, I visited UncommonGoods - where I found the fruit bowl of my dreams.  The Loop-De-Loop Bowl.




My Loop-De-Loop bowl is one continuous piece of chrome steel, which means it is pretty indestructible.   (With, children in the house that is a selling point for me.)  Yet, it is modern and attractive.  I think it would look nice in a  kitchen with stainless steel appliances.  Even though I don't have stainless appliances, I love the bowl for it's clean lines and function-ability.

Shopping with UncommonGoods is a way of saying that you want to make this world a better place.  UncommonGoods is environmentally friendly, and socially responsible.

Just in time for holidays, UncommonGoods has put together their own gift guide - filled with loads of ideas for your gift list.  You'll find everything you need from stocking stuffers to wine accessories and gifts.

UncommonGoods is my choice for finding gifts which are unique and appealing, and I'm happy to be able to feature them.  I hope I've just helped a person or two strike a name off of their shopping list!








~ Holiday Giveaway @ Country Mouse, City Mouse! ~

One lucky reader will win a $50 gift certificate to kick start their holiday shopping at UncommonGoods!
