We’re older and wiser – here’s what we’ve learned


Older and Wiser

At the ripe age of 22, we feel like we’ve learned a few things about life. Mainly this — the people you choose to surround yourself with make all the difference in the world.

Thanks for making our community so wonderful.

A Lot Happens in 22 Years

We’re so proud that with your help we’ve been able to send almost $112 million to artisans worldwide! But there are other ways to measure success….

That’s right. From gorgeous filigree and precious gems to sese wood and recycled paper, global artisans have dazzled us with their incredible craftsmanship and creativity. Your ears would agree.

Presuming each shot glass has been used at least once, global artisans have truly helped support the party with their handblown creations. Bottoms up in brightly-colored confetti, whirling aquamarine, and party pink.

Who’s in the photo?

Our inventory team in NOVICA’s Peru office asked Walter Jose Acosta (pictured holding the cake) to join them for an impromptu birthday photo, while he was dropping off some of his creations. Pictured from left to right we have Paul, Julissa, Walter, Sergio and Cinthya. Walter is a very talented archaeological replica artisan, with a fabulous collection we are all in love with!
