Novica Giveaway!

Remember Novica?

If you don't - let me tell you a bit about them ... from their mission statement:


We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.


Isn't that a novel idea? Working for the consumer AND the creator to establish an incredible shopping experience? I know it touches me, so when they reached out to me again to ask if I was interested in doing a giveaway for my readers I couldn't pass it by.


Novica is a wonderful shopping experience, even when what you're ordering is traveling across the world to get to you.


The last purchase I made with them was a gift for my mother-in-law's birthday. A beautiful amethyst pendant that is both her and my daughter's birthstone. She loved it. I loved it (the chain was a little bit short for my style, though, but perfect for her). Wanna see?



I already know what I am getting myself this time. A silver elephant ring. There's a story behind that and I'll get into it when I post my review, but here's a sneak peek at the ring for you:


On top of all of that they currently have a new cool campaign looking for consultants. So if you're looking for one of those home party jobs, but just aren't feeling the general companies, look no further! Novicalive is perfect for you.

Novica also has an incredible Microfinance program where you can make a loan to someone starting their own business. From their site:
We are proud to have launched the first-ever microfinance website where customers can purchase products and lend money directly to artisans, with loans at 0% interest! Check it out!

So I'm lucky enough right now to have a Novica code for YOU to buy yourself something special. Enter here by first heading on over to their fair trade corporate gifts and let me know ONE items you'd love to buy yourself.
