When I was approached by NOVICA several months ago about checking out their website and doing a product review, I had no idea what it was. I was surprised when I checked it out to find so many amazing handmade items up for sale.
I’m familiar with Etsy and shop on there A LOT. I like to think of myself as a good DIY’er, but when it comes to some things, it’s really easier to just buy it and I love the fact that when I buy things from websites like that, I’m supporting small businesses.
All of that is true to NOVICA, but on a much larger scale. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw all of the amazing things from beautiful scarves to intricately crafted kitchen items, jewelry, and so much more. It was almost overwhelming browsing all of the products; I couldn’t decide what I wanted!
The thing I love about this website though is, they make it so easy to shop! You can browse by occasion if you’re looking for a specific gift. You can browse by GIFTS FOR HER or GIFTS FOR HIM and more! I had so much fun browsing, I started to think up ideas for birthday’s and other occasion’s coming up this year.
I ended up deciding on a gorgeous wood bowl and salad server ware. I’ve wanted a small wooden bowl to set up on our counter for a long time to use for various things, but I haven’t found one that fit the bill and who couldn’t use some cute salad servers!?
About the Artist :
“I work in wood. Like many people who work in this craft, I had a difficult childhood that helped me become a man who strives to get ahead. I’m a hard worker, and I’ve worked on my own for around 40 years.
“My parents weren’t artisans but, as a child, I did see a lot of people who were and I was fascinated by how much shoppers liked handcrafted wood art. I decided to learn, and the first thing I crafted was fruit carved from wood, which I eventually sold.”
Victor Hugo Lopez is the man behind that gorgeous set you see in the picture above that is now on display on my countertop. I loved reading about him and I love the NOVICA gave me the opportunity to know about the face behind the product. We shop in department stores all the time, but we never get to know the person who creates what we wear and display in our house.
I really love that NOVICA provides such a unique and worldly experience opening you up to so much more than what you find in a store at the mall. I am so excited to have this opportunity and share this unique shopping experience with you!
If you want to check out more of what Victor has made, CLICK HERE, but I would recommend you check out the website as a whole. Find something new and unique to add to your wardrobe or your home and then read about the person behind the product; get a feel for who you’re supporting. I can guarantee you will find 100 things you love (& how fast it gets shipped to you PLUS the quality of what you receive) will leave you so happy you did!
