Sweaters rock on Cyber Monday

Posted on December 01, 2014 by Neil Angis | 0 Comments

Just a little reminder... today is the last day to get 10% off everything on our site with code 10HolidayCheer2014 OR get 20% off of orders of $50 or more when you sign up for our super laid back email newsletter. After all, it's Cyber Monday -- the best thing to happen to the internet since, well, the internet.

And while you're browsing the shop today looking for that perfect holiday gift for weird Uncle Larry and crazy Aunt Sue, why not pick up something fun for all those parties you have coming up? Something that will take your granddad's spicy eggnog up a notch (if that's even possible)? Something that brings the festive beauty of holiday sweaters to your candy cane spritzers and mistletoe mojitos?

Introducing... Sweater Rocks!

Hey gang,

We can't wait for next week and the beginning of a fun holiday season filled with a whole lotta food and drink, and some quality time with family and friends. And if you're planning on doing some shopping online while you're maxing and relaxing next week, we'd love for you to stop on by our little shop and check out what's in store. Between our ever-growing list of available cities in our Maps Glassware collection, to our new State Slates and BRAND NEW Maps Cases for iPhone 5+6, you can find the perfect gift for pretty much everyone on your list (including yourself -- hey, you deserve it!).

Here's a little sneak preview of our holiday deals, which start on Monday, November 24:

  • Exclusive 20% off orders of $50 or more for our newsletter subscribers (11/24 - Cyber Monday 12/1)! Not a subscriber? Sign up today and you'll also get $5 off your first order. Just like that. 
  • For folks who aren't yet subscribed but are maybe sorta thinking about it, we'd still like you to have 10% off our entire site (11/26 - Cyber Monday 12/1). 
  • And to top it off, everyone gets our always-running, always-awesome free domestic shipping on orders of $75 or more. 

So come on by -- we know you'll be glad you did. Cheers!

Brian, Dave, and Neil


Olives & Grace is where it's at

Posted on November 17, 2014 by Neil Angis | 0 Comments

Yesterday we visited Olives & Grace, a cool little shop in Boston's South End that carries an awe-inspiring array of local, handmade, and socially responsible goods (including our Boston Maps Rocks Glasses!). We had a blast meeting and chatting with Sofi, who owns the store and curates the collection, and shares our passion for supporting small business and the community. She also puts together really nice gift boxes and sets. If you're within 50 miles of Boston at all during the holidays, it's worth the trip.


While we were there, we also got to meet Robin of Doves and Figs, who makes probably the best jams on planet Earth. She and her daughter make everything by hand in their kitchen and use only fruits grown in Massachusetts by local farms. We tasted a jam called Sunday Brunch -- they should really call it Heaven on a Cracker (Or Whatever Else You Want to Put It On). Let's just say we'll be stocking up on that one, and you should too.

New Product -- Announcing MapsCase!

Posted on November 05, 2014 by Neil Angis | 0 Comments

We could not be more excited to launch our newest product, MapsCase! MapsCase is an elegant yet durable case for your phone, which is possibly your most important possession other than your dignity. 

If you can't tell yet, we love cities, we love maps, we love functionality, and we love simple yet striking design. And thus MapsCase was born!

We hope you'll love these as much as we do. We'll be adding new cities and adding the iPhone 6 as soon as we can, so drop us a line at contact@theuncommongreen.com if you have ideas for cities we should add, or any other thoughts you have about them. We love hearing from you.

What's a Grommet? We are!

Posted on May 15, 2014 by Neil Angis | 0 Comments

Our friends over at The Grommet in nearby Somerville, MA, work hard to promote growing brands and cool products. So it seemed like a natural fit when they asked us to feature a selection of our Maps Glassware with them. We even got to make a cool video -- check it out!


Check us out in West Elm!

Posted on March 28, 2014 by Neil Angis | 0 Comments

We're over-the-moon thrilled to be partnering with West Elm's Local initiative, which promotes the work of local artists and designers by featuring their designs in West Elm stores. We just so happened  to be in the neighborhood of the West Elm Fenway store last night in Boston, and we just so happened  to catch them setting up our display!
