I have always loved literature. As a child, I devoured books like candy. I'd stay up late--hidden beneath bed covers and with a flashlight in hand--and read Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary. With age, my reading selections turned to Harper Lee, William Shakespeare, and Jane Austen. My love of reading and books and classic literature led me to pursue an English degree from Utah State University.
Imagine my utter delight when I discovered a "lit lover's" infinity scarf on the Uncommon Goods website! A beautiful, cream-colored, circular scarf with a passage from Bronte's, "Jane Eyre," silkscreened on it. It was gorgeous, I was in love, I knew I had to have it! (It can be purchased here!)
And friends, in finding that scarf I also found a wonderful online retailer; a site offering a glorious smorgasbord of art, jewelry, clothing, pottery, and hundreds of other unique and creative products. One night (once the kiddos were in bed), I spent hours perusing all the gift possibilities. (Looking for a birthday gift for that "hard-to-shop-for" person? Like my mother-in-law? Ahem...I mean, YOUR mother in law? Check out this list of goodies: http://www.uncommongoods.com/occasions/birthday-gifts )
UncommonGoods is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, and all business operations are conducted within the Brooklyn Army Terminal. The best part? The company makes it a priority to support designers and artists, with half of their products being handmade. That matters to me!
So read a book and buy a scarf!
Happy shopping, my friends!
