Welcome to Uncommon Collective Store!

(Formerly known as Hammers & Wands)


Meet The Team...

Socially awkward and totally awesome at it!

Uncommon Collective is mash up of a mother and son duo, Janine & Ethan.
Both rough around the edges, both strong & independent, but cheeky and fun!
About Uncommon Collective Gift Shop   Meet Uncommon Collective Gift Shop staff today
👋 Hi! Nice to meet you!
Some of you know me, you've been following since the beginning, and some have not had the pleasure!
I'm Janine! 🙋‍♀️
I work at UCC, I manage it, stock it, man the shop, pack orders, do the socials, push papers, pay taxes, meet & greet, make things pretty, find randoms, make friends, bring A+ customer service, problem solve, make a fool of myself, tell great dad jokes, offer sarcasm and caffeine all day. I can be a big deal some days and others not so much...
Then there's Ethan... 🙋
He's basically a smaller verison of me. Kinda like a mini boss.. he is super bossy and nosy. I wouldn't say customer service or working is a strong point for him. He definately has an opinon, not always wanted, and he definitely plays a vital role. Kind of like an in-house critic/quality control/muse.
And that's it, 2 socially awkward, sarcastic cheeky individuals running this show!
Sounds like a good time, doesn't it?!
No really, we would love to meet you! We won't bite! Unless we are being dinosaurs, then run...
