Hound & Co. Brings Online Dog Artisan Shopping To Your Fingertips
There’s a new place for dog lovers who love handmade items to find exactly what they are looking for, with an Etsy-esque online site named Hound & Co.
I won’t lie. I could sit on Etsy all day long and twice on Sunday, loading my cart with stuff I love and justifying it all with the, “I’m supporting artists and small business people.”
But oh, the damage I could do with a new market-place that’s just for people to peddle products for dogs and dog lovers called Hound & Co. In similar fashion to Etsy, pet product people can design and open stores for free on a platform that is solely for selling all the dog things. Like on Etsy, sellers upload photos for their ‘shops’ and sell online instantly. There is a charge to sell, similar to Etsy’s/Ebay but it’s only 4% when your item sells and no charge at all if you just want to post.
Not only do I love some of the unique and gorgeous items for sale (I’m talking to you, Lemon verbena Dry Shampoo and you, gorgeous handcrafted kennel!), I love that Hound & Co gives back, and in so many ways! Sign up for newsletters/emails? You’re donating a meal to animals who need your help! Buy something? A portion of the sales goes to rescue organizations to help take care of homeless pets.
And if you are a rescue organization looking to find homes for all your furry friends, you can list on Hound & Co., for free! Generosity and commitment to animals and their welfare while supporting small businesses and artists…
Yep…looks like I’ll be breaking out the old wallet. Very happily, I might add!
