With Mother’s Day around the corner and the fact, my blog has been alive and kicking approaching 3 years as of Mother’s Day 2014; I thought I would do some blog posts about being a mother.
First off a little lust list working in collaboration with uncommongoods.com who have a wonderful range of gifts for pretty much every occasion.
I’ve been checking out the women’s gift guide section and if I am honest, my list does not reflect everything I like as there are so many wonderful gifts and all very reasonably priced – I want to buy pretty much everything, it’s all so good. I will definitely be using this site for gifts in the future – super impressed and I love that it’s unusual and lots of ethical, holistic and family orientated options to boot.
“In 1999, our founder Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was captivated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people behind them. He saw there was a significant public demand for beautiful design. At the same time, he realised that the artists working to make those pieces were often travelling great distances in order to sell their wares at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had the vision to create something that had never existed before—an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shoppe. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods. He continued travelling to craft fairs and trade shows, meeting artists and finding stand-out merchandise, while running the business out of his home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Before long, the company had outgrown Dave’s apartment, and moved through three successively larger offices in downtown Manhattan, eventually settling in our current location in Brooklyn, NY.”
