      Beautiful, but very small and light

      Comments about UncommonGoods Be The Change Paperweight:

      I was disappointed when this product arrived. It is very pretty, but it is also very small and not very heavy, which makes it difficult to use as a paper weight. I was expecting something different and would not have ordered this had I realized the size and weight were what they are.

              After receiving, I realized how small it was. Went back to website and saw where everyone had commented the same thing. I wish I would have seen these posts earlier.
