In all honesty, life is about choices . . . and one of the most important choices we can make is choosing what we value. At Noteworthy, we value the creativity and passion that people bring to the world. We value our customers' need to express themselves in fun and uplifting ways. We value the importance of upcycling--of keeping usable items out of landfills--for we only have one home planet and we need to take care of it. And, most importantly, we value the right of all living creatures to share our world, to be treated with respect, and to live out their lives in peace.
We also realize that 'values' are only words until they are put into action. To that end, meet Mr. Howell, Noteworthy's shop cat and mascot. He is a stray who found us in December and decided that a custom handbag store is the best home in the world. Stop by to visit! He loves meeting new people and being an ambassador--not just for our products--but for fellow strays everywhere. His message is that all cats (and dogs--even the strays!) are truly awesome individuals who deserve loving homes. We can all make a positive difference in the world. Some of us accomplish that by being creative and sewing up handbags that make people smile. Others (like Mr. Howell) do it by wearing a tie and simply being cute. How will you make a difference today? It's truly worth thinking about . . .
