      I bought this as a gift for my niece for her graduation from NYU Law School. She liked the sentiment expressed on the bracelet, and wore it every day as she studied for her Bar exam.

        Glad I found it. It's this years addition to my yard. I do wish the tongue had been curved as in the photo but I love it anyway! I was afraid to put it anywhere that is easily accessible to passers-by. It would be a little to tempting due to its extreme coolness factor!! The spark plug fly is brilliant!!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Prompt and undamaged though the box could have used more padding.

          Love this product! A friend of mine bought a metal Venus fly trap, but not this one. I thought it was pretty cool, so I started some research. This was a wonderful find, and it looks great in the lilly garden. I plan on adding a few more.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Venus Fly Trap Garden Stake:

          I have several of this artist's critters scattered throughout my garden. They make me smile every day. This Fly Trap ornament is charming, and the fly (magnetic, so you can place it how you like on the tongue) is especially amusing. However, the way the figure sits is -- at least on the one I got -- different from what you see in the photo. My Fly Trap faces straight upward, and the tongue is stick-straight. Not as graceful or dynamic looking as the one here. Still like it, though.

            This is such a cool addition to our back yard. it seems very resilient and looks awesome. i love the spark plug and in general, the durability. In my review i said a con was that it's easily stolen, it hasn't been stolen from us but i wouldn't trust to put it in our front yard due to it's high levels of coolness.

              Looks great in my garden, well made. However there is no curve to it. I just sticks straight up out of the ground and the tongue sticks straight out as well. I wished it had some bend to it, so it would have more personality. Nicely made though, just very stationary.
