Music Suggestion: Life Of Dillon – Overload
Want to know the best place in YYC to buy uncommon, creatively curated goods?You know those days when you just need that retail therapy but you have no idea what to buy? The answer is in The Uncommons.
The Uncommons can be found in the heart of Inglewood, Calgary’s oldest founding community. It’s a real closely knit neighbourhood with hipster vibes and an aura of simplicity. Local designers combined with authentic goods is what lies within. Truly inspirational objects that have been sourced directly from creative individuals scatter the quaint artisan shops. The Uncommons embraces this atmosphere and harnesses the best of these goods. Do you have a few hours to kill? I hope so.
Here’s something you may not know about us – we have a heritage in baseball. For years as kids we would go to the park and ‘play catch’ or ‘hit flies’. I even played competitively for a good part of my childhood, it’s where I learned team play and sportsmanship. The wooden bat display inside The Uncommons hit a home run in my feelings department. Do I want it on my wall? Yes. Did I have the funds? Not yet.
So that’s the vibe. The Uncommons is looking to find creative pieces that trigger a memory or work it’s way into your heart. They are items that not only will you treasure for a lifetime, but you will find a valuable use for them all the while. They represent innovation and design, the ‘how it’s made and who made it’ movement. Clocks, candles, outerwear, grooming products, paper products, you name it, there is something for you within these walls. We suggest you let your sense of adventure carry you through this unique retail experience for yourself.
See you down there!
