Uncommon Personalities: Meet NéQuana Rollings

NéQuana Rollings, UncommonGoods Associate Buyer-Tabletop

My hometown is…
Bronx, NY. But I’ve been living in Brooklyn for 18 years.

My favorite UncommonGoods product in my category is…
The Pinch and Dash Salt and Pepper Shaker Set.

I’m inspired by…
Colors, sounds, feelings..nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. There is inspiration in everything.

My guilty pleasure is…
Children’s snacks. If there is a snack targeted towards kindergarten students to fifth graders, I’m on it.

An uncommon fact about me…
I barely watch television. I watch TV approximately 0-2 hours a week (2 hours is a major stretch).

My favorite place to eat in New York City is…
Everyone I know can answer this for me. Chipotle!! Whoop! I visit their site just to drool at the images (lame, greedy..call it what you want!).

The word that best describes me…

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
That there are more people [like myself] who do things for others without looking for repayment.

Would you rather… Have to stay up for 24 hours straight, but get a front row spot to see your choice of band/artist perform after you’ve deprived yourself of sleep OR get to sleep in as late as you want every day for a week?
This is harder than I thought, because I love to chill in bed. I have stayed up 24 hours straight—so I’d choose to stay up a whole day to sit front row at a Nas concert. (Backstage would be better…)

    For Nequana:

    We have a really cool and INNOVATIVE tabletopISH product which would not be shown anywhere which could be a cool add-on for your site. Here is a new product video that we just released (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RrWVMT8ayU). Let me know if you think their might be space to accommodate the Hypotherm!

    If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly!

    Best Regards,
