Such a fun giveaway this weekend in light of our recent wardrobe discussions!
Recently, Novica wrote me about their work as a fair trade artisan website. In conjunction with National Geographic, they work “to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.”
The selection is huge — and so fun to take a virtual tour around the world.
While I would categorize many of these items in the luxury category in terms of price, others, like these bracelets, are quite affordable and competitive with what you might pay at the Stuffmart down the street. On the day that I placed my order, the pair of bracelets were $18, making them $9 each, what I consider a fair price for artisan jewelry.
(I do think the prices may vary from day to day, though. So, keep that in mind when you order.)
It was amazingly fun to scroll through the vast choices they have available on their website. Check out the new bag I chose:
So cute! I’ve got my fingers crossed that the greens and blues will match my mix and match ensembles for summer into fall. But, even if it’s not a “perfect match,” I envision this kinda get up with the neutral clothes and the shoes and bag that add some punch.
Ordering with Novica is super easy. You can pay via Paypal or even through Amazon! I’m kinda wondering if your Swagbucks-generated gift certificates might work if you pay through Amazon. Let me know if they do!
Shipping was a lot more reasonable than I anticipated; each item was about $3 to ship. This makes me think toward Christmas and the great things I could choose for my sister and nieces now that they live far away.
And according to Amy’s recent review of Novica, the packaging is superb. Amy also offers information about how to become a consultant for Novica.
I’m really looking forward to these new colorful additions to my wardrobe. And am already planning some fun birthday and Christmas shopping for my girlfriends. There are so many things to choose from: accessories, wool scarves, and even walking sticks!
