About Uncommongoods: Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment without harm to animals or people. We run all our operations out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, 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 jewelry products, home décor and table top items 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.

Brayden chose this map for his room. I LOVE it. It comes with stickers that say where they have lived, been, where their grandma lives, and more. He just put stick on there for now but is super excited to put more on. The map is laminated and REALLY high quality. I love all of the little things in each state. So informative for my five year old! I truly think it will last for many years until he is much older.

This is my favorite thing that I picked. I've wanted a growth chart for my boys for a long time. This one is SO interesting. It shows what they are as tall as every centimeter. I do wish it had inches on there as well but I love it. The boys were super excited to see what they are as tall as. So, was my husband. HAHA.
Sorry the funny lighting. NO windows in this area of my house.

LOVE our new clock! We had a Christmas clock in it's place 6 months later. HAHA. We were due for an awesome new clock and this one is totally awesome AND well made. I love the sleek design.

Humprey the Hovering Hummingbird stake (here): Handcrafted from gleaming copper and colored glass, Humphrey the hummingbird makes a charming, handcrafted addition to your garden. With petite proportions just like the real thing, he hovers gracefully over your plants and gives your greenery a pretty little pop of personality. Humphrey was made to weather the elements and over time he will develop a gorgeous patina on his copper wings and tail. Handmade by Lisa Fida in Lowell, Maine.
This hummingbird stake is gorgeous. It's hand made by an artist, which is amazing. My nanny's favorite thing to do was sit on her porch and watch hummingbirds. I even have a hummingbird tattoo. This will make a great addition to my yard. I just need to mow my grass first! It's only $20! Amazing for such a beautiful piece of art!
