Seemingly everyday
things, made in
extraordinary ways

The photo shows several 2 inch by two inch linen lined note cards with a flying dove punched out, a loosely arranged lapis and sterling rosary and a silk wrap of broomstick lace in red and black cherry colors all arranged on a gray gingham background.

What is The Unusual Favor?

The Unusual Favor is a place where one can find some seemingly everyday things, made in extraordinary ways, and some exotic things made as one might expect. Using skills set that step back in time, making the most of the harvest be it from the hunter, the arborist, or the lumberjack. Preserving scrap raw materials sustainably to reduce waste that goes to the landfill.

Things made at The Unusual Favor are mostly made by hand, although wood and bone stock are cut to rough shape using power tools to be shaped and polished by hand. Time and attention to detail are paramount in creating functional art, as quality materials are frequently difficult to source as part of the overall creation process.

Think of this website like you would a Victorian style home. A guest or neighbor might be invited into one of the common areas of the home. You’ll find various items in The Unusual Favors kitchen, craft room, sewing room, parlor, and even the wood shop out back.
