Recently I was asked to review a product from Novica, a company associated with National Geographic. They offer a line of free trade items from artisans from all around the world.
They are hoping to create an attachment to the product and the hands that created it. And their website does a great job at helping you create that connection. They have an enormous selection of beautiful and unique items at just about every price range.
I was offered a $100 gift certificate to purchase something from their line and to review their service and products. But I couldn’t keep all this goodness for myself so I accepted a $50 gift certificate for my review and a $50 certificate to giveaway to one of my lucky readers.
Here are some of the beautiful things I considered. Love this beautiful silk scarf. See this beauty and others here.
And I was intrigued by this purse make completely out of soda can lid tabs.
I thought the purse would look great with this gold belt also made out of soda can lid tabs. Check this belt and others here.
They offer many beautiful types of tableware. Who wouldn’t want to pick their morning banana out of this stunning bowl.
With so many beautiful items to pick from I felt just a bit like Cinderella. It took me a bit of time to look at all the beautiful merchandise. I finally narrowed it down to a Necklace from Thailand. I have a “thing’ for necklaces. I just love them and I can turn a pair of jeans and a t-shirt into an outfit with the right necklace.
So on Saturday morning I placed my order with Novica. The ordering process went very well. I used express shipping and was told that my order would arrive in 3-5 days. That sounded almost too good to be true, something from Thailand could not get here in 3 to 5 days. I received tracking info all along the route from Thailand to my mailbox.
My necklace arrived right on time and was wrapped very well. I hate receiving a package only to se that it is damaged.
Inside the package was a beautiful handmade paper envelope.
Inside the envelope my necklace was carefully wrapped and arrived in perfect condition. This would be great if you are sending something as a gift.
And finally here is my new necklace.
I love my new necklace. It looks even better in person than it did on the website and I am wearing it to a play tonight.
So here are the details on my first GIVEAWAY. I am keeping it real simple. All you have to do is leave a comment.
