It’s been a while since I’ve found some really good Crap 2 Buy, so I was amped to have found Uncommongoods.com. Let’s dive right in:
PICK PUNCH: Picks on Demand
It’s a recurring nightmare: you’re backstage opening night of your first world tour, the crowd’s roaring, begging you to come back and play one more blistering guitar solo. But you’ve got no guitar pick. What to do?
Well, with the Pick Punch®, you can be sure that nightmare never becomes reality. The Pick Punch® does exactly what it sounds like it takes materials, like old credit cards or unused gym membership badges, and punches them into custom guitar picks. Keep it at home or carry it in a gig bag to be sure a new pick is never far from reach. This little gem will set you back $25.00
Set of 2 musical wine glasses: Chime and Dine
Wine and dine in perfect time! Get your next dinner party humming when you turn your sips into a symphony with these glasses turned musical instruments. The etchings on the glasses are musical notations that correspond to the level of the liquid. When the user drinks to D for example, he or she may run a finger along the rim of the glass to create its lush, sonorous note. Or, for the more percussive partier, the same note will ring out with a gentle rap of his or her utensil on the side of the glass. From rounds of “Row, row, row your boat” to more ambitious orchestrations, you’re sure to strike a chord with the guests at your next soiree with this pair that covers a full 12 note octave from A flat to G. Made in Austria from lead-free crystal. The cost of this one? $65.00
CUSTOMIZED LETTERMAN SWEATER: Go! Fight! Win!
You may not have a cheering stadium shouting your name, but you can still revel in that old-school glory when wearing this vintage-style letterman’s sweater. Manufactured by a company that’s been making varsity sweaters since the 1920s, it’s no surprise that the design is full of winning detail, from its fold-over cuffs and button-up front, to its single left-hand pocket.
Customize the look with your own strategic lineup of chenille patches: your choice of over-the-heart letter, and year and 1 symbol on a shoulder (star on the left OR chevron on the right).
Whether you wear them to cheer your favorite team or political party, as official wear for a wedding, club or family reunion, or just to celebrate your own personal victories, these sweaters are a triumph of classic styling. Made from durable, washable 100% acrylic. Made in Berlin, Wisconsin. This one is my fav, but a bit pricey at $150.00
