mother's day shopping

Today I placed my Mother's Day order from Noonday Collection. I love being able to purchase with purpose-not only does the recipient have a beautiful new, handmade accessory, it comes ready to go in cute packaging with a gift tag that explains how the purchase made an impact. 

I don't want to reveal exactly what I purchased (hi mom!) but here are a few things I considered:

Don't forget to order by this Sunday, April 27th to ensure you have your goods in hand for Mother's Day! (and don't order anything that's currently backordered...just to be safe!) Shop here.


customer favorites: earrings

It is so fun to see everyone choose their favorite pieces to order from Noonday. These are the most popular earrings from my Noonday Collection customer orders (side note: y'all have great taste!):

They are all different price points (starting at $20) so everyone can find something to love! I just ordered the Empress earrings (the first picture) to add to my sample collection. They should be arriving soon (I can't quit stalking usps.com for updates.) 

Shop them here: katemcnatt.noondaycollection.com

PS: If you are hoping the Easter bunny is going to leave you some Noonday in your Easter basket amongst the jelly beans and cadbury eggs, the deadline to have (non-backordered) items arrive in time for Easter is this Saturday, 4/5.)

Shown above are the Braided Bullet Earrings (made in Ethiopia) and the Artemis Necklace (made in Haiti):

...after several natural disasters damaged artisan workshops and threatened these important networks, Noonday wanted to be a part of restoring them and helping create an American market for their special pieces. One talented metalworker named Renal lost his entire workshop after Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The workshop was a place where many in his community would gather to create works of art that enabled them to sustain themselves, and the entire community was affected by the loss. Renal and his fellow artisans refuse to give up hope, however, and are now working to rebuild. We are proud to purchase from these artisans as they work to rehabilitate and rejuvenate their communities. //read more here.
