Uncommon Personalities: Meet Victoria Golann

December 5, 2013

Victoria Golann |UncommonGoods

Victoria Golann, UncommonGoods Senior Manager–Data Analytics
My home town is…
Middletown, NJ

The word that best describes me is…

I’m inspired by…  
People who create things.

If I could know anything without having to study it, it would be…
Hmm, I think half the fun of knowing something is learning it, but it wouldn’t hurt if I could master the languages of whichever countries I plan on visiting next.

My favorite place to hang out in New York City is…
Definitely the running path along the Hudson River. It goes all the way from Battery Park to Inwood, and I always get a running high as I pass by all its sites, sculptures, and views.

An uncommon fact about me…  
I was an engineering major in college, but I took printmaking classes whenever I could. Intaglio and woodcut are my favorite techniques, and I love making mixed media collages with my prints.

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…  
How important it is to find a work culture that fits your personality and views. We have an amazing team here, and a company that really cares about its customers and employees. I look forward to coming into work every day.

With a pile of stuff in front of me I would make…
You’re given a Potholder Loom with bottomless Lotta Loops refills, a box of thumb tacks,  6 salvaged window frames missing the glass, and a megaphone.

I’d sell it all for some ice cream at Ample Hills in Brooklyn!

Meet Our Drop Ship Team

December 2, 2013

Our Drop Ship Team | UncommonGoodsDuring the holiday season, every team at UncommonGoods is very important – from the Outbound warehouse staff packaging up your orders, to the Tech Team making sure our website is in ship shape, to our Purchasing Team who makes sure all of our best sellers are in stock – but one team stands out in my mind as being integral in making the most special holiday gifts happen. Our Drop Ship team is the liaison between our customers and artists to make custom gifts like the Anniversary Wine Box and the Personalized Family Print happen.

Meet our Drop Ship Team | UncommonGoodsWhat does “drop ship” mean anyway? It’s the term used when an item is shipped straight from the designer to the customer. To ensure the product is perfect before heading to our customer, the Drop Ship team collects the information so the artist can customize the product. In many cases, the Drop Ship team checks back with the customer with a proof of the product to confirm everything looks good.

A custom gift is certainly very special so our Drop Ship team keeps busy during the holiday season, but not without deadlines. The last day to order most custom or personalized gifts is December 4, with an approved proof by December 9, so don’t hesitate. Time is running out!
