Novica Giveaway!

Novica, a National Geographic-affiliated fashion and home décor website, has quietly become the world’s largest curated marketplace of handmade goods with over 30,000 products from around the globe. A fair trade brand committed to sustainability, Novica connects artisans directly with customers for value-added pricing. To date, they have sent over $46 million to artisans around the world to preserve the arts in a mass-produced world!

I absolutely LOVE the sound of Novica. It's the trendiest way to shop for home décor, clothes, and accessories—perfect for gift-giving!—while benefiting global artisans and staying eco-friendly.

Here's a short message from the wonderful people at Novica:
Sourced from around the globe, each handmade product listed on Novica goes through a certification program to guarantee the 100% premium quality of each item. We practice fair trade, so none of the artists are charged any fees for listing their items on the website. Artists remain fully independent – they are free to raise prices, lower them, or remove the items from the website. Novica has cut out the middleman, adding value to both the artisans and customers.
I browsed the site a bit and fell in love! Check out the unique gifts for the ultimate gift guides. We have gifts for women, gifts for men, gifts for yogis, gifts for good luck... you can find gorgeous, hand-crafted items for every occasion at Novica. Here are a few of my favorites:

I am in love with how their styles range from exotic to elegant to casual and span the cultures and textures from all over the world. This is the kind of store I'd do my regular shopping at, and for a good cause, too!

Giveaway!


This is the exciting part, which I know you all have been waiting for! Our lovely friends at Novica have offered one $25 gift card to spend on anything at their store—exclusive to Books à la Mode readers! Now, I personally ended up spending way more than $25, but I lack self-control like that. There are hundreds of pieces in the Under 25 category, if you'd like to check that out.

Now, onto the giveaway rules:
For the chance to win, peruse Novica's storefront and pick a fashion product (from clothing, jewelry, or accessories!) that YOU fell in love with. Then, come back here and tell me what about it stands out so much to you in the comments. I showed you my favorites... now share your own!
