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.
Not only do independent crafters make quality products, they are often unique and not able to be found in large chain stores. And of course, many items are customizable when handmade, which cannot be accomplished when selling through retail stores.
Here are a few examples of some unique products for pet owners. Who knows, they might even inspire you to create something new and start your own business.
Skateboard Pet Bowls These fun raised pet bowl sets are made from actual skateboards. These bowls will definitely add style to any room and will be a conversation starter.
Ceramic Water Bowls Here is another unique concept for water bowls. These ceramic handmade bowls are actually mini fountains that keep the water moving and fresh. They are electric, which means they plug into the wall, and are sturdy enough for thirsty cats.
Unique Dog Tags There is an infinite number of ways dog tags can be designed and some can be quite special. Here are a few pictures of a few unique dog tags found on various online stores.
Pet Food Dispenser This handcrafted pet food dispenser drops the food from the upper compartment directly into the bowl that slides out from the unit at the bottom. Lifting a handle opens the spout where the food comes out.
There are so many unique and high quality items that are handmade by pet lovers for pet lovers. Support independent artisans by shopping for these items first.
