Sponsor Giveaway: NOVICA $75 shopping spree





I'm pleased and excited to introduce NOVICA, a fair trade artisan website that works with National Geographic to give talented artisans around the world a global platform  to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market.

At the heart of NOVICA's mission is the desire to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet can allow. NOVICA offers thousands of top fair trade corporate gifts and home decor items on its website such as trade fair coporate gifts and green gifts (sustainable, natural, recycled and reclaimed).

Novica artisans worldwide have contributed hundreds of stunning eco-friendly and nature-inspired gifts, decor and jewelry. You can watch inspiring videos of the artisans here.

To help artisans grow and flourish, NOVICA also launched the NOVICA microfinance website  where customers can purchase products and lend money directly to artisans.
