You're invited! To the Grand Opening of Gone to the Dogs studio-storefront
Hello friends, family and pet lovers,
Santos and I have been working tirelessly on our beloved pet project, Gone to the Dogs, for the last year. We launched our online shop despite what was happening around the world and in hopes that our dream of launching a sustainable pet brand would come to fruition. We desperately needed it to happen in order to continue giving orders to artisans who were in dire need of work. It's been emotional and stressful, but also exciting, and absolutely amazing! 🙌
After launching our online shop in June of last year, Santos and I proceeded to work from home throughout the pandemic. That's correct - Santos made collars from her very own living room and I did all the photoshoots from my kitchen. We realized very quickly we needed a space where we could work together and run our business - so the search for a studio space began. During our search we felt that there was something truly missing in our endeavor. We couldn't quite pinpoint it, but suddenly it was obvious💡, our baby pet project needed friends!
So we set off to find the perfect studio/storefront combo. We searched all over for a place to call home. A place to create product (and not annoy our neighbors by hammering down collars). A place to incubate ideas, gather feedback and glean advice from our community. A place to share and play with our furry friends! We have so many fun events and ideas in store and cannot wait to announce.
There are truly no words to describe the journey up to this point and just how thankful we are for getting this far. So we wanted to mark this milestone with a grand opening event for everyone to get a chance to come visit the space to shop, sip/slurp, play and most importantly celebrate! We want everyone who has supported us all this way, cheered and rooted for us, friends, family, doggos, kitties, to please come join us! 😘 Scroll down for event details!
