How 'Bout Something Fun For A Change? (Giveaway)

Instead of talking about tornadoes or the end of the world, let's do something fun for a change!  I've been asked once again by my friends at NOVICA to host a giveaway.

NOVICA is a fantastic website featuring handcrafted artwork, clothing, home decor and other items from artisans from all over the world.  They are a great place to find corporate gifts; if you're in charge of that at work, it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas, anniversary or retirement gifts for your employees or co-workers.  And if you're looking for fair trade gifts or green gifts, NOVICA is the place for you.

The only hard thing about shopping at NOVICA is deciding what to buy!  I love their jewelry and clothes, and was really tempted by some of their home decor.  I finally decided on this beautiful, yet useful, appetizer platter.

Novica is also introducing a new website called NOVICA Live!  If you love handcrafted items, this is your opportunity to become a NOVICA consultant.

If you'd like to help artisans in another way, and have money to lend, you can join with others in NOVICA's Artisan Loans.  Click the link for more information.

And now for the fun!  I have been given the opportunity to give away one $50 NOVICA gift certificate code to one lucky reader.  Here are the super simple rules:

1) Visit NOVICA and have fun browsing the website.

2) Come back here and leave a comment, telling me what you'd most like to have.  This is your one-item wish is no object.  Please leave a way for me to contact you as well.

3)  Leave your comment before the end of the day on Sunday, June 5. 

4) On Monday, June 6, I'll draw a name at random from those who entered.  That lucky person will have 48 hours to respond to my email or post in order to receive the gift code.  Please keep in mind that the gift code amount is limited to $50 and must include shipping charges in that amount.

Happy Shopping!

Disclaimer:  I was provided with one $50 gift code for myself and an additional $50 code for one reader.  I received no other compensation for this post or giveaway.

I started looking at the jewelry and oh my goodness, how could I ever choose just one piece? Ahhh, but I think I would love to have the Natural white orchid necklace. Thanks for directing me to such an interesting site. I'll have to look around more later.


Rivenfae said...

WOW! That is a cool site.. there is so much I'd like from there :D however if I had to pick one it would be this Wood quena flute, 'Song of the Andes'

It just drew me in the moment I saw it.

Rebecca Absher said...

Oh wow...this site is great. The pricing isn't as expensive as you would think. The one item I loved was the Cotton hammock Ancestral Fire..what a great way to relax. Thanks for the great information you provide and the giveaway.

Kat said...

They have so many nice things, I am not sure what I would pick, but it is a close between the "Breakfast in Bed" tray (to treat my husband on Father's Day) or the confetti pitcher for fun.

Frances said...
