Vote on Designs to Take Home the Prize!

Results coming soon

183 votes 45 comments

We’re pleased to say that some of our favorite new goods made their way into our assortment thanks to voters like you! You helped us pick truly winning designs, so we’re giving you the chance to win new products of your own.

Vote and Comment to Enter:

1. Each vote gets you an entry in our voting giveaway. Vote on each product under consideration for more opportunities to win.

2. Share your votes on twitter or tag us in a comment on Facebook along with a link to our voting page for another entry.

3. Leave an insightful, constructive comment telling us what you love about the product or how you think it could be improved. Again, you can comment on each product under consideration, giving you even more chances to win.

Two Ways to Win:

Win with a vote...

One winner will be chosen from the voters of each product from this week's new up-for-voting selection. We do encourage honesty, so a thumbs down vote could still win. In that case the voter will receive a gift certificate in the amount of the value of that product. If one of the products doesn't make the cut, the winning voter will receive a gift certificate in the amount of the value of that product, so they can choose something else they’ll love.

Win with a comment...

The best comment left over the course of the contest, as selected by our buyers, will win a $50 gift certificate. Tip: We want to know what makes a product an uncommon good. Tell us what you love about the design or how we could make it better. Share how you would use the design in your life, or let us know whether or not it would make a great gift for someone special. Our buyers take every comment into consideration, so make yours count!

*This contest is open to those in the 50 US states and the District of Columbia, as we do not offer international shipping at this time. Voting/commenting to enter ends 8/15.

One of the best things about Uncommon Goods, and the reason it is the first site I recommend to friends, is because of the unique stories behind the products. I think this is a great way for UG fans to show appreciation for the cool and fun products and artists on the site!

It seems very impractical. It's a gorgeous design, but I don't like the idea of drinking from something fragile that might break in a child's mouth.
