Have you heard of Novica?
I'll let them take a moment to introduce themselves:
There is a nation of artist throughout the world-
a village of carvers in Bali;
a family of ceramists in Brazil who have handed down their craft
from generation to generation;
a farmer in the Andes who hand-weaves alpaca sweaters.
It is a community of artists who have been isolated
for centuries by distance, time and geography-
isolated from the very community of collectors seeking
their unique, inspired, and undiscovered arts and crafts.
Now, finally, there is a bridge connecting our separate
communities into one worldwide nation-
this is the NOVICA nation.
Novica is a company associated with National Geographic working to open doors for crafters all over the world and give them the opportunity to sell to a worldwide market.
Today Novica is offering one lucky Poppies at Play reader a
$50 Gift Certificate

Novica gave me a $50 gift certificate so I could give an honest review of the company
I chose this lovely dress
Made by Aruna Singh
Aruna from the legendary 'Pink City' of Jaipur.
Her desire to become a designer was sparked as a child when she would dress her friends for plays and performances. As she got older she loved making alterations on every dress she bought.
One thing I really loved about Novica is being able to read all the personal stories of the artists.
I love having my new dress! Thank you Aruna!
