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.

                  Purchased several in two different orders ie 2 then 7.
                  Gifts for graduation, 30 year work anniversary and Teacher of the Year.
                  It just kept popping into my head as the right gift with a lot of meaning.
                  I had always loved the expression, "Be the change you wish to see in the world"
                  When i looked up the expression, looking for a gift related to that, I was happy to see that a tasteful gift was available to continue to inspire great people to do great things. As a RI native, I was delighted to learn that it is made in RI.
                  I also like the pewter that it made from.
                  I hope that the recipients will enjoy it for many years into the future.
