Noonday was started by Jessica Honegger after a trip to Uganda in 2010. Having decided to adopt from Rwanda, Jessica and her husband were asked by longtime friends living in Uganda if she would like to sell the fair-trade locally made goods in Austin, in order to raise money for the costly adoption process.
Noonday was born. The beautiful items can be purchased online but Noonday also offers “Trunk Shows”. These shows can help YOU raise money for your adoption.
As a hostess for a Noonday Collection Trunk Show you will see your friends light up when they find that special item that was seemingly ‘made for them’ crafted by an artisan with dreams ‘just like them’. At the end of the evening, it’s time for YOU to shop as you enjoy free products from our collection.
Qualify for free jewelry and home accessories with gross sales of $500 or more. Then enjoy 10% of sales in free products. Free products are subject to an 8.25% sales tax. If this party is being done to raise money for your own adoption, then you can opt to receive 10% of the profits in cash.
