Amy and Erin’s Favorite Things…Noonday!
We may not be Oprah but as we start thinking about shopping for the holidays, we wanted to share some of our favorite things (ask Erin about her Oprah experience sometime!) through a fun segment aptly named “Amy and Erin’s Favorite things”…we are so original.
First up, NOONDAY. Noonday is a wonderful company that employs artisans around the world, your purchase directly supports families that would greatly struggle without the work that Noonday does. In order to showcase this great company (and the great gifts you can buy there for someone you love or for yourself, we won’t tell!) we would love for you to be a part of our Trunk Show. Not only can you shop if you so desire, but we would like to give two of you an early gift from these awesome artisans. All you have to do is click the link, look around at the pieces and leave a comment with your favorite. If you decide to shop, know that your purchase will directly help the artisans and their communities. Everyone who comments either here or on Facebook will be entered to win one of 2 $25.00 gift cards, (and thanks to our awesome ambassador Mindy for your donation of a gift card!).
Here are some of our favorites from this collection:
