In 1999, our founder, Dave Bolotsky, visited a craft show and was inspired to build something that had never existed before: an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with shoppers looking for truly unique goods.
Over the last 24 years, Uncommon Goods has grown to approximately 200 year-round team members with thousands of packages heading from our home in Brooklyn to customers across the country each day.
Our collection has grown from Dave’s craft show finds to thousands of designs handpicked by our buying team, who search all year for unique goods from around the world. We also discover unique pieces through online submissions from our community of artists and designers. Thanks to our in-house product development team, we create our own goods, too.
