Artists and artisans all over the world have been making pet supplies and gadgets. Now they have multiple ways of selling their products both online and off. Websites such as deviantART, Etsy, and Artfire allow creative people to showcase and sell their work online. Craft fairs and street fairs have been an outlet for decades. Yet somehow most pet owners head to PetCo and Pet Smart or the grocery store for all their pet needs.

Unique Dog Tags
