NOVICA Fair Trade Artisans make for unique gifts

Disclaimer: NOVICA provided me with a gift card to purchase a product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product and giveaway.

I love NOVICA and want to show you the amazing products I received from a great promotion I participated in back in November.  There were so many beautiful choices but I went with my favorite artist from a few years ago.  His name is Victor Hugo Lopez.  Before I reveal what I received...check out the beautiful gift wrapped packages!

 This is actually how my order arrived.  I am in love. 
 And even a personally signed card from this gifted artist.  Victor Hugo Lopez's biography which is found right on the NOVICA site is very touching.  Here is an excerpt  :  "I really enjoy my work and, over the years, it has let me take my designs far beyond the borders of Guatemala. I am so proud of the resources we have here. 

"I'm grateful to Novica for the opportunity to have a window to the world through the web page. I'm also grateful to you, the shoppers, for making your homes a cultural showcase for artisans like me, who live and dream of our work."

 I selected the Forest Kitchen Ceder Spatula set and a beautiful sugar bowl and spoon that matched a bowl I received hand crafted by Victor Hugo Lopez years ago.  

And let me tell you this artist continues to take pride in each piece of work he crafts.  Thank you NOVICA for allowing artists to blossom!
