What I love about this project is getting to meet so many great small business owners. And not all of them are in Ottawa, either.
I met Janice, who owns Wagz Wear in Newmarket, via Twitter. We were ooh-ing and aaw-ing over the amazing sculpted cakes of Ronna Mogelon. Ronna is donating one to our silent auction and Janice immediately (and very kindly) offered to donate a leash and collar set as well.
Now these are not your ordinary leashes and collars. Janice (and Mocha, her doggy model) sell handcrafted, personalized, embroidered leashes and collars, as well as bandanas and drying cloths and all kinds of great stuff.
Here’s a few examples of the collars ($ 25, $30 if you add reflective tape) and the leashes (which range from $25-35), and a picture of Mocha happily showing them off.
