"One for me and three for gifts"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am sure there is also a testimonial for these.... I purchased them several years ago. I love buying ornaments from Novica. I keep one and give the rest away as gifts. One friend collects bell ornaments and she was thrilled to get one of the Bells of Hope and Joy.

"A great place to park this-and-that!"

I am delighted with this little bowl; the three legs it gives it great character. It holds my earrings and other small items until I can put them away (I was always misplacing them before). Its even more special knowing that it was made by artisans overcoming special challenges. Thank you, Argentina and Francisco, for the good work you do empowering others!
