About Face

A group of craftsmen in India is trying to help you find your glasses. This hand-carved wooden statuette is perfect for holding your glasses when you're not using them. No more searching around blindly, or trying to remember where you last put them down.

And this friendly face also has a story to tell: it was created by HSSS, a non-profit in India that helps underprivileged artisans, who suffer hardships with physical handicaps, illiteracy, extreme poverty, or being in lower castes, find markets for their wood products.

Handmade of sustainable sheesham wood, native to the Indian subcontinent, bought under supervision and quota from the government of India (which sells the wood of dead trees).

Eyeglasses not included.

I love this little guy. So much personality in a piece of wood. Did I say wood? He's a stand-up guy. My own little monolith.

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

I can't say enough wonderful things about this company. I previously had ordered one eyeglass holder along with other items. One of the items had been slightly broken in transit but we managed to repair it on our own. When I mentioned this in my previous review, the company promptly sent me an email and offered a free item to replace the broken one. Instead, I asked for another eyeglass holder. Not only did they send it, but they credited me with the difference in price between the broken item and the holder. The quality of all items ordered was exceptional. Uncommon Goods rocks!!

Have you seen my glasses?

By 

from Detroit, MI

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

For 25 of out 35 years together my husband has spent a portion of his day searching for his glasses. At any given time he has had three pairs of prescription glasses because he has "lost" a pair for long enough that he's given up and bought a new pair!! For the last two weeks - since our wooden nose arrived - it has been a running joke. He'll call out, "Where are my glasses?!" And we'll call back, "They're on your NOSE!!"
So far so good ; )

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

This is my second purchase. First was for me and everyone who sees it, loves it. This one is for a friend and I think I will also buy two more for my grandkids since they think it is "cool". Reasonably priced unusual gift. What's not to like???

      Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

      Whenever I saw this "nosy" guy in your catalog, I thought, "The way I'm always misplacing my glasses, I really need him!" But I'd get side-tracked. Finally, I made the purchase and was thrilled to discover that his presence was every bit as helpful as I had imagined. No more searching behind sofa cushions or scouring each room. The NOSE KNOWS where I can find my glasses...every time!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

      This arrived quicker than expected and it looks beautiful! It's really helped my SO remember where his glasses are so he's been able to stop blindly scrounging for them or asking me where he put them whenever he wakes up :)

      Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

      My husband is or should I say had always been misplacing his glasses since I've been with him, over 13 years. Christmas was coming and I decided to make his life less complicated. He loves it!! and to be perfectly honest it's nice not searching for them all around the house. Thank you so very much.

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

        It's much easier to find glasses since they're no longer left just anywhere lying flat down so it's a useful gift.
