Delicate and petite
This hummingbird is beyond lovely. Where it is hanging it looks as though its in mid flight. I love it!!
Small bag with plenty of room!
This bag is so pretty, and colorful. Great craftsmanship, and roomy. I can have a wallet, phone, mask, car keys, and allergy meds in this bag.
Surpassed my expectations
I had admired these earrings for a long time. When I received them, I was SO surprised- they exceeded the even the great quality I ve come to count on from jewelry from Novica. They are absolutely gorgeous. I m thrilled with them.

Two Guatemalan Worry Dolls with 100% Cotton Pouch, "Love and Hope"$12.99
Crafted by members of the Lopez Garcia Family of Guatemala, these dolls make a wonderful gift for friends or family that tells the recipient you care about their well-being and wish them the best. Quitapenas means "to remove worries" in Spanish; artisan Aura Lopez explains the Mayan worry doll tradition. "My grandparents said that the way to use them was to take the doll out of the bag or wooden box and tell it your problems and fears," she states. "Then, you place the doll under your pillow and, the next day, your problem becomes smaller or can be resolved." The set consists of two pairs of male and female worry dolls joined together by a red heart. Handmade, the dolls are dressed in vividly-colored traditional Guatemalan attire and arrive in a pouch of handwoven cotton fabric.
