Uncommon Goods

Wow neighbors!

This is the last post in our Mother's Day Event.  I sincerely hope you are visiting the sites of our sponsors and finding some great gift ideas (Click here.).  So, here we go...

Uncommon Goods is a really unique website.  They have items that are unique and some that are unusual.  I personally received a Japanese Elm Bonsai Tree Kit and a Happy Feet Spa Set.

First the Bonsai kit.  Personally, I have always thought that Bonsai trees were really beautiful.  Now I get to grow one of my own.  I can't wait to see what it looks like.  The kit comes in a silver metal tin and includes everything you need to start your tree.  Included in the kit is a bag of potting material, instructions, 6 seeds (this may vary), and tiny scissors for trimming the Bonsai.  You actually plant your seeds in the tin, and use the lid for a drainage dish. As you can see from the pictures I already have mine set up.  Now, I just need to wait for it to grow.









Now, on to the Happy Feet Spa Set.  This is a really nice gift set for Mother's Day and it was made in Bali, Indonesia. The set includes a Pumice Stone, Jasmine Soap and a Nail Brush, all packaged in a fabric covered box. Here is their description:
"Treat your feet without the harsh chemicals of a nail salon with this luxurious all-natural spa set handmade in Bali under Fair Trade regulations.
Pumice stone: made from volcanic rock created by the 1968 eruption of Mount Agung. The stones are dug up and carved by traditional Balinese artisans in the Singaraja area of west Bali.
Jasmine Soap & Nail Brush: Made from locally sourced materials and carved by a family of wood carvers, high in the mountains of central Bali.
Fabric Box: The fabric covering the box is hand loomed in traditional women's cooperatives in Central and Eastern Bali. Inside the box is a bed of organically grown and harvested fragrant vetiver root."

Uncommon Goods has some great Mother's Day Gifts.  My Husband's birthday is coming up and I found some items that he would love to receive as a gift, you can see some on this page.  I found many items that someone in my family would enjoy.  There are some nice Anniversary Gifts I would enjoy receiving from Uncommon Goods.

Uncommon Goods is going to send one of my Neighbors a $50 GC!  WOW!
