Up to Par

Sometimes there's nothing to do but play it as it lies. When the workday's tough, this clever desktop paperweight is an amusing reminder that there's no obstacle that can't be overcome. The Sand Trap Paperweight handcrafted in Seattle contains a colorful assortment of tees, a real golf ball, and of course, sand -- everything one would expect to find in those pesky sand traps!

The bright white and rich spring green of the handmade art-glass globe are a nod to the white flags and golf balls dotting the course's perfectly manicured grass. This miniature sand trap makes a great gift for golf-loving dads and bosses! As an added interesting fact, all products from this studio contain ash from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption. Handmade in Seattle, WA

        I was disappointed. It is a little cheap looking- plastic, with the sand falling all over the place. Usually I love Uncommon Goods' products.

                        We think the Sand Trap Paperweight could make a great gift for dad, or any guy who loves to hit the green. Do you think this piece is a hole in one?
