{Featured Brand} Uncommongoods ~ Unique Gifts for Unique People

Uncommongoods, is the latest brand to be featured on A July Dreamer. It has been fun bringing you amazing and unique brands that sell the best products in their respective fields. Last week I featured another unique brand, Basic Invite which brings you the best event invitations on the market. When the email from uncommongoods popped into my inbox I had to do a double take because of the name. I mean it really says it all, un-common-goods, it’s not your everyday items but unique ones for unique people.  One such unique personal in my life is my cousin whose birthday is this weekend, I know she would love a unique present.

Uncommongoods ~ Unique Gifts for Unique People

Uncommongoods is an American online store that stocks and sells thousands of unique and unusual gifts from jewellery to home items. Dave Bolotsky founded the company 1991 after his visit to Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C.  The visit left him with the desire to connect unique handmade items and the artists behind them exposing them to the wider audience. Over the last few years, with the help of a co-founder Thomas Epting a photographer by trade has helped to make the business successful. It is a company that started in Dave’s apartment and grew so fast, now it has its own design team working with many artisans from all walks of life.The company has over a 100 employes but at one point only had 5 when times where hard.


What’s stands-out about uncommongoods is their dedication to sustainability not only for the environment but their employees and artists. The company ensures that no materials that are harmful to humans or animals are ever used in their products. Uncommongoods have even created a program that allows customers to choose a partner (non-profit organisations) to donate $1 to with every order. This incredible program was started in 2001 and has since donated over $1,000,00 to a non-profit organization. A lot more that can be said about this brand but I will let you check out there website.
