I have spent, probably...the past week getting prepared, placing orders, and updating my website for our decorative concho collars. I now have everything up and running and orders can now be placed. We're pretty clear now on the "Do's and Don'ts" of what works and what doesn't as far as conchos and collar styles, and it's not just been this past week we've been preparing, but it's been weeks of testing products before finally launching these. I want to thank Lisa from Collarmania for ALL of her awesome information and help with all of this. She has been a GREAT advisor. And as always, we stand behind our products. If something breaks, we fix it. We don't anticipate that happening as these collars are STRONG and barring you don't run the collar over with your car or allow a stampede of elephants to destroy it (or a dog to chew on it), they should last a lifetime, and as I said, our products have been tested. I know I've posted pictures of Ella wearing her new Reptile/star themed collar already, but we recently made some collars up for AARS in Chicago for their fundraiser they're having next week. And I wanted to share pictures of those, please forgive the pictures as two are somewhat lopsided because I was SOOO tired by the time I got around to snapping these pics that I obviously couldn't hold my camera straight : This first one is a choker/control style collar. I, personally, LOVELOVELOVELOVE the conchos on this red leather. I love it so much, I'm thinking of making one for Ella. This is a double leather collar that we made up in brown with a burgundy strip in 1 1/2": And this is a 1 3/4" plain black leather with sheriff stars and free floating stars: I guess I'm just really proud of these. In about a week I'll be posting our holiday sale so stay tuned!
