Shopping Part Deux

More shopping promised:

When I'm looking for something a little less traditional, I always check out Wishing Fish and Uncommon Goods.  Creativity abounds at both and prices run the gamut, so it's always worth a look.  Wishing Fish doesn't have a huge selection, which is actually kind of refreshing.  I tend to have a wee bit of trouble with decision making, so it's kind of nice not to have a million choices. They also change out their stock fairly frequently, so it's not just the same stuff month after month.

A few peeks at Wishing Fish:

Uncommon Goods has a bigger selection, and all kinds of options for sorting out just what you're looking for by recipient, price, occasion, or department.  Very user friendly.  Here are some fun picks:

I also frequent Mighty Goods, Mighty Junior, and Mighty Haus.  These sites are the brainchild of Mighty Girl, Maggie Mason.  She and her cohorts do the footwork for you and come up with great products from various sites.  I always make a point to peruse the gift guides at Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. on the Mighty sites.  They never fail to find something good that I probably never would have found if left to my own devices!  Coincidentally, Ms. Mason also wrote "No One Cares What You Had For Lunch:  100 Ideas for Your Blog", which has been on my reading list for awhile now.  Hey, we can all use a little inspiration every now and then, right?


  1. I'm so impressed that you found a shop with things I like! I'm going to have to buy some stuff from Wishing Fish now.

  2. ...that was me. I'm too tired to be commenting, I guess.
