Have you heard of Novica?  

NOVICA is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites.
 They work with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. They have thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts, accessories, jewelry and home decor items on their website.

I was contacted to do a product review for them and a giveaway.
 I was pretty much blown away with their items.
 I am a big supporter of buying local.  But this supports the "locals" of many world wide areas.  
Many not as fortunate as we are.  

They have many categories to shop in:
Home Decor - 

I adore this cotton and jute cushion cover
 This blue table runner and accessories would be amazing for summer at the beach.

Jewelry and Apparel:
 I like the rustic and timeless look to this bracelet, leather and pearls.

Then there is what I bought. 
I love bags and this one will go so well with my laptop bag.
This is the paisley bag I purchased being modeled by my sister.
This is  very well made and is very large in capacity. 
It has the cutest button on the front and I know will work wonderful for me. 
I can't wait to load it up and head out shopping. 

And much more that you will enjoy perusing. 
I know we are heading into summer but take a look at their cardigan sweaters and see if they don't have you thinking of fall.  They have me planning a fall wardrobe update :)

Now I'd like for you to go by their website Novica and look around.
Then come back and leave a comment with what you like and I will enter your name for the giveaway of a gift certificate from their site.  
That's all nothing, else required. 
Though, I'd love for you to become a follower if you want to. 
The winner will be announced Monday April 16, 2012. 

What would you buy? 

thanks, tammy

I have been compensated for this giveaway from Novica.  I received a gift certificate to purchase something and do a review.  This is my opinion. 
Here are some links you might enjoy on their site:


  1. What an amazing site. Wow! I LUV these earings: Sterling silver flower earrings, 'Paradise Moon'.

  2. There are so many beautiful items to choose from. I love many of the cushion covers--there are some gorgeous art pieces and I do love the Black and White Beaded Basket with the White Flowers...

  3. Oh I always loooooove the things I see on Novica when I browse it. I'm on an "outdoors-y" kick right now (must be spring fever!) and a hammock has been high on my wants list for two summers now. I'd definitely want to get one of those. I love the Maya Daydream hammock with the fringe hanging down. I could nap in one of those for hours, lol!

  4. What a cool site! I would love to have the amethyst gemstone flower cuff!

  5. there are so many wonderful things! but i think i would get a skirt for myself, or earrings for my niece - too many items to choose from!!!

  6. Tammy,
