We are trying to purchase more items now that are Fair Trade certified - especially chocolate. The good stuff tastes better anyway. In a similar vein, Novica.com is a website that is focused on bringing attention to incredibly talented artisans worldwide of items such as home goods, jewelry, and art.
It is a fun site to browse, and you should also stop by Momma Told Me to enter her giveaway for a $40 gift certificate to Novica. Even better than browsing all of the awesome stuff is getting something unique for free or discounted!
