Unique Gifts Found at NOVICA - Review & GC Giveaway

Disclosure:  Free product was received to facilitate our honest and unbiased review.  No monetary compensation was received.  A gift certificate prize is also being given by the sponsor.


NOVICA is a global marketplace!  It gives artisans from around the world a free platform to sell their work on the international market and reach customers on a global scale!  Many of these artisans are living in rural communities and don't have the means to sell their work this way.  The artisans have complete control and are free to raise or lower their own prices, place items on sale or even withdraw their items at any time!  NOVICA helps provide artists with a platform where they can operate a sustainable creative business.  No longer will they be forced to give up their art in favor of a more lucrative career!

NOVICA provides its' customers with unique items from artisans from places such as Bali, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Peru, Thailand, and other countries. If you are looking for hard-to-find pieces of home decor, unique apparel and purses, beautiful jewelry and so much more, look no further than NOVICA!

We received a gift certificate which enabled us to purchase some items to review!  I looked around the site for literally an hour before I chose Thai Artisan Crafted Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings, 'Linking Leaves'  and a Black and White Floral Cotton Purse, 'Thai Shadow Garden'.

The earrings are beautiful and very well made!  They are an ideal length for me and they can be worn when dressing up or dressing down!



The purse, which is no longer available, is very well made.  The stitching is wonderful and the button embellishments on it are made from coconut shell!  The bag is very sturdy and I love carrying it!

~~~GIVEAWAY~~~

NOVICA has provided me with a $35 gift certificate to give away to one lucky Shelly's Bits and Pieces reader.  This gift certificate does expire on January 31, 2017, so please keep that in mind!  Simply enter on the Rafflecopter form below and you could finish out 2016 with a WIN!

I love so many products on NOVICA. Last Christmas I purchased a Moon Face Ring and Necklace for my friend, she gets many compliments on them. I would love to get the: Citrine Moon Image Silver Earrings Crafted in Bali, 'Frangipani Moon Child'for myself. I would recommend anything from this crafter!
