Yesterday I went to Rockford Michigan - a quaint little town just 8 miles south of where I live. I happened to notice someone cleaning windows and carpeting in a new gift shop boutique that was slated to open TODAY! I peeked in the window and knocked on the door - and had a wonderful conversation with the owners of "Kitties and Doggies 2".
This afternoon I delivered a nice size order of the blank note cards I sell in my Etsy shop, ClassyChassy, and also some Origami Flip'nFold dog bandannas, for the owners to sell in their shop! Very exciting! Most of what they currently offer are items made in Michigan, and made in the USA. They were interested in taking orders for the large totes I make and sell, as well as commissioning me to create collars and leashes for their shop! How wonderful is that!
They absolutely LOVED my photographic images, of the Corgi girls and other animals that are featured on my note cards - so much so, that they asked if I would be interested to do photo shoots when they hire a SANTA for the Christmas Holiday Season! Of course, I said YES - how could I NOT? Photographing animals is one of my favorite things to do; I am so pleased to be able to be a part of their 'team', and wish them much success in their new business!
