Trunk Show in a Blog Post! :)

It's Cyber Monday... and what better way to spend it than by investing in the lives of families and communities?! I'm inviting you to sit back and enjoy browsing my list of top picks for gifting this season! Several of these items are best sellers--all of them are personal favorites and changing lives with each purchase made.

Let's pretend I'm having you over to my house for a trunk show. Come on in! The music is on, there's a hot beverage to sip on and some yummy snacks. This trunk show has a twist though! Since there is no hostess... I will be selecting a "mystery hostess" from you who are able to join! Those of you who decide to purchase from my site in the next 5 days will be put into a drawing for a $50 gift card from Noonday Collection! Make sure you pick my name, Liz Sanchez, from the ambassador list at checkout to be entered in the drawing.

If you have ANY questions about sizes/colors/ordering... I am always available to help!

Ready to see my top picks?

Ok, seriously? La Noche Bracelet is an absolute show-stopper.  Square-cut beads are skillfully woven together by our Guatemalan artisans and cast off amazing glimmers and sparkles with every movement of the wrist. Can't go wrong with this one. Price: $38


Whatever you are doing... STOP and check out our Home & Gift selection! Every item is on sale right now! Our stationary is a go-to choice for those shopping for gifts for teacher or mom... and our tea towels add a bright spot to any kitchen. Check them out! {Sale} Prices: $12-26

This Charlotte's Bag has been my one-and-only bag for most of this year. It has gone with me to playdates, soccer games, grocery shopping, church... (I know, I know. I lead a wild life)... And, has held up beautifully even with all the abuse it has received. It is a roomy, open bag with a small interior pocket (like for a cell phone), and two, larger pockets on the front of the bag. It would work perfectly for a cute diaper bag. Skillfully stitched by our group in Rwanda. Price: $58

These Bone Carved Leaf earrings? Best sellers. Oh, yes. And for good reason! They are just the right size, super light-weight and go with everything! I've seen them on bridesmaids, in family portraits--and with a baseball hat at a sporting event. They are that versatile. Made in India. Price: $30

Best-selling scarf for me this season? The Lines and Stripes Infinity Scarf, beautifully hand-knitted with 100% alpaca wool in Peru. It is soooo light-weight and easy to wear. The soft, mustardy yellow provides a nice contrast to the natural creamy oatmeal colored scarf--so that even "non-yellow-wearers" such as myself love putting it on! The knitting is so fine that it is almost like an intricate crochet, leaving the scarf so soft that it is just fun to touch. Price: $72

Now, I'm just going to throw in one of my personal favorite new items from this line: The Annie's Feathered Earrings! (I may mention that I saw Jen Hatmaker wearing them all through Europe a few weeks ago--so, there you go!) ;) These earrings are made of leather--so they are so light-weight. They are longer in length, so they may not be for everyone. However, they add such a great pop of color and texture, even to just a basic t-shirt and jeans kind of day. Easy, no fuss--but all kinds of fun! 

And, it wouldn't be a true "Noonday Trunk Show" without talking about the Bethe Rope. This is basically a "Noonday Classic". One of our best-sellers for awhile, it is made from upcycled artillery in Ethiopia--providing not only dignified work for our artisans... but a chance to live. You see, our artisans in Ethiopia all are HIV positive, and their creations make it possible for them to be able to purchase the medication necessary to become healthy people--truly back from the dead. Our Bethe Rope can be worn in a number of ways: long as pictured here, or shorter... or even as a bracelet! Many of our customers who prefer a more simple, uncluttered look gravitate towards this piece. It also is a great "layering necklace"--adding movement and interest, but not looking too "busy". Price: $40

Another best-seller, and just an easy go-to piece for a pop of color: The Tagua Seed Bracelet. It's just as great as it looks. ;) Made in Ecuador. Price: $28

One more best-selling scarf: The Angelica Infinity. This scarf is made of cotton, not wool, so it can be worn year-round. Woven by the campfires of our Guatemalan artisans, this is a true piece of culture. (*Note that the scarf is currently on backorder, but we expect our shipment from Guatemala to arrive December 15th, so Noonday is planning to have the scarves delivered in time for Christmas). Price: $58

I hope these picks have helped you to get started making your shopping list! Feel free to browse around on my site. You navigate it just as you would any other online retailer... the only difference is choosing my name at the checkout page. Noonday Collection is guaranteeing delivery by Christmas on any items ordered by December 17th (that are not listed as being on backorder).... and remember: shipping is a flat $6, so, order away!! :)

Happy Cyber Monday to you! (And, here's hoping YOU win the $50 shopping spree!) :) :)
