Uncommon San Diego was founded by Erin Dollar of Cotton & Flax, in an effort to build community in her new home of San Diego. Inspired by the success of Little Boxes in Portland, Oregon, Erin hopes to encourage San Diegans to discover all of the vibrant and thoughtful shops in their community, and meet the entrepreneurs behind each unique space.

What if holiday shopping was more fun then frenzied? The aim of Uncommon San Diego is simple: when you shop at participating local businesses, you not only get the joy of supporting your community, you also get rewarded with the chance to win some awesome prizes. Join us for a weekend of exploring our neighborhoods and discovering amazing gifts from local shops!
