What is this?

I posted this pic in exchanges because I have potted a couple for the swap on the 23rd and will take them IF they are something desireable and not some awful thing that no one would want. They are growing in my shade garden. They appear to be some kind of a shrub, the stem is definitely woody. I put 3 yards of black topsoil in here before I started planting three years ago, and they're not like anything else I've seen in my neighborhood so they probably came in the soil. They are attractive, at least as babies.

Anyone know what they are?

Some sort of sumac, maybe?

I think it might be a smooth sumac - that's what I can find online that looks the most similar. I've put a link below. Is this something that anyone would want? Is it smooth sumac?

Here is a link that might be useful:
