The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Megan Stickel

August 8, 2015

Megan Stickel, UncommonGoods Associate Buyer, Children & Desktop

My hometown…
Phillipsburg, NJ – known for having one of the oldest football rivalries in the country with neighboring Easton, PA. I never went to a single game but apparently it’s a big deal.

An uncommon fact about me…
I enjoy doing chores. Mowing the lawn has always been a favorite and I find weed whacking to be especially satisfying and fun.

My guilty pleasure is…
Having too many cats.

I’m passionate about…

The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen is…
It’s a toss-up between the Great Ocean Road in Australia and Bjork at ACL (Austin City Limits) in 2007.

My favorite place to eat in New York City is…
Too many places! I really love this Korean place called Hangawi where you have to take your shoes off. Other favorites are Candle Café, Champs Diner, and Angelica Kitchen.

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Obsessively cleaning my apartment. Once I finish with that, I usually like to hang out on this random stoop with my friends – sounds lame but it’s actually perfect because none of us live there, so people just come and go as they please. No commitment!

My relationship with Mother Nature is…
I love the outdoors. I grew up in a very rural area and spent a lot of time hiking in the woods, playing in streams, and riding bikes up very steep hills. I love animals and have very strong feelings on how humans use them. I think that a lot of people are beginning to open their eyes to the truths of this as well as how we treat the environment – and that’s a great thing.

If I won the lottery, I’d…
Open a massive animal sanctuary! Also, buy a bunch soft-serve ice cream machines and open a fully vegan/non-dairy mini version of something like 16 Handles.

My style is…
Mmmm, I don’t know. I’m pretty simple and just want to be comfortable and boring. Whenever I buy something that’s not basic, I end up having no clue how to wear it and it just sits in my closet. I wish I could pull more things off!

    Hi Megan,
    My name is Don Kosler and I am the VP of New Business Opportunities at Ingram Entertainment Inc. (IEI). IEI is the largest home media wholesale distributor (DVD/Blu-ray Movies & Video Game Software & Hardware in the country. However, we also carry some other “Uncommon” products as well. I think a few of our more unique products would be a great fit with “Uncommon Goods”. We have Fuzzy Earphones in many colors, a really cool new sku that kids will love. We also have a line of Mobile Phone Accessories {OK pretty common}, but {coming soon} a licensed line of Jelly Belly mobile phone accessories that have the shape, color and smell of Jelly Belly candy’s (yep even smell). And lastly, not from us, but I would like to connect you directly to the source if interested… Awesome Plush Animals, their eyes light-up when you squeeze them… These are fantastic for kids that are scared of the dark. They also automatically go off after 2-minutes, so stinking cute. Night Buddies is Owned and was created by a Mom trying to solve a problem for kids afraid of the dark build, they are not sold at any mass retailers. Oh your bio says how much you love animals so i think you will adore these. If interested any seeing any of the aforementioned items please send me an email address so I can send you PDF attachments.
    Thanks and have a super-duper day!
    Don Kosler ~ Ingram Entertainment Inc. (916) 235-5416 ~
