About Face

A group of craftsmen in India is trying to help you find your glasses. This hand-carved wooden statuette is perfect for holding your glasses when you're not using them. No more searching around blindly, or trying to remember where you last put them down.

And this friendly face also has a story to tell: it was created by HSSS, a non-profit in India that helps underprivileged artisans, who suffer hardships with physical handicaps, illiteracy, extreme poverty, or being in lower castes, find markets for their wood products.

Handmade of sustainable sheesham wood, native to the Indian subcontinent, bought under supervision and quota from the government of India (which sells the wood of dead trees).

Eyeglasses not included.

The product was advertised in a World Market ad flyer, however, when I went out there to purchase one for a gift, they were sold out. In searching the web, I was fortunate to find that Uncommon Goods had the same item. The item was for a birthday gift for my son, one for his bedroom and one for his office. [...]. He finds them handy and a convenient way to store and find your glasses after setting them down. I also purchased a holder for myself and it sits on my computer stand.

I think its a great gift especially for someone like my dad who's always losing his glasses. For some reason I thought it would be bigger & I had hoped they would have shipped the back story about how its made with the product. Other than that I have no complaints & I know my dad will love it.

I got this for my mom for mother's Day haven't given it to her yet but I'm sure she's going to love it. Such a stylish alternative to putting your glasses on the table, or anywhere else they might be misplaced. Well made too.

My youngest thought this was hysterical and was very excited to have me open it for my birthday. He doesn't move my glasses when they are on my stand. I even have my cleaning cloth on the stand.

Does the job

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

It's cute and does the job. I just took off one star because I have one pair of glasses that doesn't fit so we'll on it (the spacing between the glasses and the arms is a little wide on the holder). I was also hoping this would match the owl eyeglass holder I also bought from uncommon goods, but this wood is much darker.

Too small

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

Very good quality but too small for any glasses that my hubby wears. Thinner glasses, yes. The thicker frames for sunglasses and eye glasses, no. Sadly

This gift was a hit with both my brother and husband. They perpetually lose their readers and this is a fun way to keep track and always know where they are! The wood is sleek and it is well-crafted. Lots of oohs and ahs from the whole family :)

My dad has been losing his glasses frequently recently and I thought this would be a great christmas gift for him. I thought the newspaper it was wrapped in was a fun interesting touch and the item is crafted beautifully. He really liked it a lot!
