What would you NOVICA?

Category Contests

I’m late getting this week’s contest up, but I hope this will make it up to you: We’re going to have a reprisal of one of our more popular contests! Our friends over at NOVICA have once again offered up a $50 gift certificate to one lucky Want Not reader, to spend on whatever your heart desires. (Full disclosure: I am also getting a gift certificate for running this contest. Usually I say “Oh no, that’s okay, I’m fine,” but I am a sucker for NOVICA and so I said, “Oh thank you very much,” instead. Heh.)

If you’re unfamiliar with NOVICA, they work in association with National Geographic to bring artisan works from all over the world to a larger audience. They specialize in fair trade corporate gifts, green gifts, and even microfinance opportunities (if that’s more your thing). New this time ’round is the news that they’ve launched NOVICA Live, a program where devotees can become consultants—worth checking out if you love their products and have been looking for a small business opportunity.

Anyway! Do you want to win yourself a $50 NOVICA gift certificate? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Friday, May 20th, 2011 for a chance to win. I’ll select a winner via random number generation, and I’m not even making you tell me what you would buy because believe me, I know how hard it is to pick just one thing there.

Ready? Go!


  1. Oh, I love Novica – and I have a vase – Amber and Jade, on my Wishlist that I am lusting after. But I am being good and earning my way to it with extra money – but $50.00 would help me earn it even faster!
