I received a Novica Gift Certificate in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Man, I love shopping. Novica is great place to look if you are looking for something unique and beautiful for you, your home, or someone you love. Novica is one of the leading fair trade artisan websites. They work with National Geographic to give talented people around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market. They have hundreds and hundreds of top fair trade gifts, accessories, jewelry and home decor items.
I could spend hours browsing their beautiful site, which is so easy to do because of its easy search features and tabs. I started off looking at jewelry and ended up looking at home decor items and clothing! There are so many amazing items to choose from!
I was so excited to order my Trendy Andes Hand Made Cotton Knit Top $85.95. It was made in Peru by Marlene de Aramburu, and it is gorgeous! I love how soft it is, and it fits so well! This sweater came packaged in beautiful paper with a small doll on the outside. It felt like I was getting a package from a loved one! This sweater is so comfy and I love that it was handmade, I love to support handcrafted goods!
Before making my final decision, these are a few other items I almost bought:
Sterling Silver Cufflinks $77.99
Emerald Diamonds Cushion Cover $99.99
Santa Maria Artisan Crafted Cotton and Leather Shoulder Bag $116.99
One of my favorite features on Novica are the easy to use shopping tabs. They have complied the most popular gifts by occasion, for him, and for her. It makes it really easy to narrow down all their great choices! They have great filters including price, color, and even what region the item comes from!
