Up to Par

Sometimes there's nothing to do but play it as it lies. When the workday's tough, this clever desktop paperweight is an amusing reminder that there's no obstacle that can't be overcome. The Sand Trap Paperweight handcrafted in Seattle contains a colorful assortment of tees, a real golf ball, and of course, sand -- everything one would expect to find in those pesky sand traps!

The bright white and rich spring green of the handmade art-glass globe are a nod to the white flags and golf balls dotting the course's perfectly manicured grass. This miniature sand trap makes a great gift for golf-loving dads and bosses! As an added interesting fact, all products from this studio contain ash from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption. Handmade in Seattle, WA

        The tees were not as colorful on the one I received as the internet image. My tees and markers were all white - the one on website had red and blue which was more fun in contrast with sand. Still very neat gift!

            Wanted a unique git for my son's birthday, who's somewhat hard to buy for but is an avid Florida golfer. Additionally, he was a young child visiting Portland, Oregon, at the time Mt. St. Helen's erupted in 1980, so thought he'd also enjoy the fact that this contained ashes from that eruption. And, as suspected, he did enjoy the uniqueness of this product. We both felt it was well crafted and just the right size.

            I was disappointed. It is a little cheap looking- plastic, with the sand falling all over the place. Usually I love Uncommon Goods' products.
