Handmade in Brooklyn by Daina Platais, each salt (the pit) and pepper (the fruit) shaker is modeled after an actual avocado.

This Just In: Book Cases

Jeffrey said: “I like the old-fashioned-ness of it and the way it appeals to nostalgia while still doing something new. I vote for Darwin — It’s like saying, Look How Far We’ve Come!”

Melissa said: “This is a clever and unique product that gives a classic look to a new, technological product.”

Emily said: “What about some Jane Austen titles?”

We asked our community to choose from a list of possible titles for these classic book-inspired e-reader covers. The feedback came rolling in, and these new community approved covers are now available. Jeffrey will be please to know Darwin’s title was a natural selection. Although Pride and Prejudice wasn’t on our original list, Emily’s suggestion caught our eye, and we’ve added it to the library.

Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales earned the most votes. Enthusiastic readers also loved Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity.

Our voters helped us choose the perfect titles for these handbound book cases. You too can help shape the future of UncommonGoods by voting and sharing your feedback on the new products added to our community voting app each week.

Too Cool

Julie said: “PERFECT!!! I have a shower next month – hope its available!! Cant wait to buy one-or two!”

John said: “What a great idea, no more ice bucket or ceramic chiller.”

What’s one part icicle and one part cork? The latest addition to our voting app, Corkcicle. This cool wine bottle stopper looks like a frosty stick of ice, but it’s actually BPA-free plastic filled with a reusable freeze gel. Just pop it in the freezer for two hours before use, then insert it into a chilled bottle of wine after you’ve poured the first glass or two. Like ice, it will keep your drink chilled. Unlike ice, it won’t melt and water down your favorite wine.

Could Corkcicle be the perfect companion for your favorite Riesling? Would a Chardonnay fan in your life love to get Corkcicle as a gift? Visit our community voting app to let us know whether you think this quirky cork is perfect for UncommonGoods!

This beechwood cutting board is precisely marked to make sure your ingredients are cut to just the right proportions. You may not know the difference between a pinch and a dash off the top of your head, but thanks to this brilliant board, you won’t have to let that stop you from creating your next culinary masterpiece.

Do you agree with Kylene? If you can’t wait to start chopping pristine pieces of celery, mincing garlic to perfection and dicing onions like a pro, visit our community voting app and tell us you love the OCD Cutting Board.

Michelle said: “I would have a hard time deciding which to buy!”

Our product development team is at it again and they just added their latest creation to our community voting app.

Each Vintage Stamp Money Clip features an actual United States postage stamp and a quote from the stamp’s star. Ben Franklin’s famous line: “A penny saved is a penny earned” complements an authentic used 1-cent stamp, while Harry Truman’s motto: “The buck stops here” is engraved next to a mint Truman commemorative stamp.

Would you let President Truman hold your bucks? Or, would you rather carry your cash with Mr. Frankin’s words of wisdom as a fiscal guide? Share your feedback in our community voting app and tell our product developers which clip is right on the money!
