Uncommon Goods Review & Giveaway

When I was recently given the opportunity to review a piece of jewelry from Uncommon Goods, I jumped at the chance.  They had several pieces that caught my eye, not only for myself, but as gifts.

 Typewriter Key Necklace

I chose a personalized piece ~ the Typewriter Key Necklace with the letter “K”, for my first name.  Simple, timeless and classic, in my opinion.  A necklace that would go with just about everything, and one that I could wear to work or just hanging out with family.

For those of you wondering how a piece would arrive as a gift, it comes in a box with the Uncommon Goods name on the lid.

Inside you will find the necklace within a lovely printed velvet bag, along with a small card that indicates that the typewriter key is, indeed, from an actual vintage typewriter.

There is a clasp on the pendant, so you could add it to a charm bracelet even, and the lobster clasp that is also on the chain provides a secure closure for the necklace.  With Mother’s Day coming up fast, they have some lovely gifts for anyone’s Mom!  Not just jewelry either.  Here are some items I came across and all very reasonably priced.

Wow thanks so much for introducing me to them. We recently bought a home with a beautiful yard and some amazing wild birds. I love the Pottery Hummingbird Birdfeeder. There is so many choices and great ideas. Thanks again for the chance.

I have purchased their recycled windshield beer and wine glasses (not sure if they still sell them), but they are heavy duty and I love them for outside!

A few years back, I ordered my mom a knife set called The Ex. It was a little man with the knives stuck all over him. Hilarious! I don't think they carry it any more though...

Cori Westphal said...

I'd really love the Kitchen Multi Storage Organizer. Genius!

Something Special said...

boy have i missed blogging and commenting. I had forgotten how much I had loved your blog and ideas. I just bought a typewriter that was made in 1917, so this necklace was interesting to me.
