Giveaway: $50 at NOVICA

I am super-excited about my latest giveaway.

I was recently contacted by NOVICA. They are one of the leading fair trade artisan websites, and they work with National Geographic to offer talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents online and to give them access to the world market.

NOVICA works with 2,000 international master artists, and the website offers over 30,000 works of art, each of which is handcrafted.

When you order from NOVICA, you support the work of artists from Peru to West Africa and from Thailand to Mexico, and everywhere in between. And what's really cool is that with each order, you receive a card from the artisan, which will tell you his or her individual story.

Running your own business is hard (trust me, I know), so NOVICA has even created a unique microfinance program to help the artisans expand their craft through small loans, for which they are charged no interest, which I think is just incredible. If you're so inclined, you can even lend a small amount of your own to a struggling artisan.

Their online catalog is huge, and the jewelry and home decor sections are particularly extensive.

NOVICA has generously given me two $50 gift cards, one for me and another for one of you to spend on their site.

Perhaps a hammock for swinging on cool summer nights? This one is $45.99, and only $2.99 for shipping!

I love these hand-blown drinking glasses for $49.95


And these necklaces are so pretty.



The twins would make sure these wouldn't survive a day in my earlobes, but they're gorgeous for a night out.

    Hi,

    I read Interrupted Wanderlust and your Midtown blog. I visited NOVICA and here's what I would buy:
    http://www.novica.com/itemdetail/index.cfm?pid=159290. It's a beautiful table lamp and I've been wanting one like this for my bedside table.

    Erm perhaps I am just a bit challenged, but I don't see where to follow you? I subscribed to you in my Google reader, does that count?

    Also, perfect timing with this. The husband was just looking out at our backyard today and lamenting our lack of hammock. Me thinks that's what I would get :)  

  8. # Blogger Marie

    I subscribe on my Google reader, of course... ;)

    And being a bag-lady, I might go for one of their hobo bags....

    I've had my eye on the Alejandro Chavez folk art mirrors at Novica.com, so if I won, I'd probably get one of those! Thanks.

    You know I do!

    2. Follow or subscribe to my health and wellness blog (or tell me you already have).

    Yes, because Facebook makes it easy!

    3. Post about this giveaway on your blog, and link back to this post.

    Done!

    4. Visit NOVICA and leave a comment here about what you would buy if you won.

    Actually, I think I would buy everything on the site. The Boyfriend actually got me hooked on this site and we have threatened to buy each other stuff from here.

    But we haven't, because some of it is pricey!

    But this is probably what I would buy with the giftcard:

    http://jewelry.novica.com/sterling-silver/under-$50/sterling-silver-flower-earrings-florid-labyrinth/169551/

    I need more earrings in my life that are practical and cute.

    There are a couple of cotton batiks on there that I like... One was Emerald something or other. Do I have to link? Come on. I haven't had coffee yet...
