Ezistock Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway
There are so many forms of beautiful and diverse artwork in this world. Beautiful handcrafted masterpieces including paintings, sculptures, and jewelry are treasures I love to collect. When I am purchasing handmade products online, I always look for fair trade companies. Men and women from small villages in countries like Thailand are working hard to bring us their one of a kind creations, and Ezistock brings them to us at a fair trade price. The items in this shop definitely suit my witchy style. From spiritual paintings to pewter fairies, there is a little something for anyone with a whimsical heart at Ezistock.
For my review, I was given a $50 Gift Certificate. It wasn't an easy choice picking out just a few items. I actually went a few dollars over my gift certificate, and I definitely plan to come back and get more later. I picked out two different products. The first thing I picked was one of the gorgeous cotton shoulder bags. These hand-sown shoulder bags are a steal at only $16.96 and perfect for anyone with a hippie or Boho style. There is plenty of room inside the bag, and the rainbow pattern is accentuated by gold threads and an elephant button hand carved from coconut.
The next item I picked out was the Incense and Holder Hanging Set. I always burn incense while I'm writing and I have dozens of incense holders, but you can never have too many, especially when the style is so pretty and unique. Each set comes with two ceramic egg shaped holders that dangle from beaded ropes. For an added touch, they have a ceramic flower, making them the perfect decor for the spring. For $19.99 you get two holders and 6 packs of cone incense in varying scents. A great deal that would make a great gift or a sweet smelling personal indulgence.
For the most part, I would have to give Ezistock a five star review. I love the quality of their products and the respsct they show for their artisans. The only thing that is a bit of a draw back are the shipping prices. I realize the products are coming from Thailand, but it cost around $14 to ship my small package. This was included in the gift certificate, but would have been a bit more discouraging if I were paying out of pocket. Though I have to say, I love the products so much, I would have grumbled under my breath about the shipping costs, but would still have bought the items in the end. The quality of these exotic handmade gifts is really worth the extra expense in the shipping.
