Yesterday I saw a long haired wiener walking near work and my heart started to race and I let out a squeal! In just 24 days Harbourfront will be a bustle with over 200 dachshunds! 200! That is crazy! (If I squeal at the site of one doxie just imagine the excitement that will be bursting from me when I see 200!)
Preparation for the DachshundUN marketplace is in full force. Castings are back from the casting house and now its a matter of turning them into wearable objects! We will be busy making friendship bracelets, charm bracelets, rings and pendants for the next few weeks.
S’wag will be selling our jewellery and greeting cards at all 4 performances. If you wish to pre-order jewellery for pick up at the show you can use promo code PICKUPUN when checking out of our Etsy shop. Pre-ordering will ensure that we have the piece you want available at the shows.
Hope to see you and your wieners there!
Woah, it’s been a while since we’ve done a post! We are hoping everyone is happy and healthy as we have entered into this new and exciting year!
We have lots of new things on the go! We are happy to report on 2 upcoming sales we will be participating in! The first is the Dachshund UN Marketplace! Between February 28th to March 3rd there will be 4 performance installations of the Dachshund UN at Harbourfront Centre here in Toronto. During each performance there will be a marketplace with vendors! Please check the Harbourfront website for show times!

Our second sale is at this years Spring One of a Kind show from March 27th-31st! We will be participating as part of SarahAnaDesigns in the new Etsy section of the show! We are very excited!
As you can see we will have our work cut out for us in the next few months! We will be busy making our old faithful designs as well as developing some new ones so be sure to check in often!
If you wish to pre-order jewellery for pick up at the Dachshund UN then please use Promo Code PICKUPUN when checking out of our Etsy shop. In using this code we know not to ship your piece and that you will be picking it up at the event!
Can’t wait to see everyone at these events!
September 23rd The Calgary Lowriders Dachshund Club will be hosting Wienerpawlooza. This event is held at the Rosemont Community Hall from 11- 4. There will be a BBQ, races, demonstrations and prizes! A portion of all the proceeds from the event will go to Alberta Dachshund Rescue.
We wish we could attend then event but unfortunately it is too far away for us! In our place we have sent a donation and some “S’wag” bags.
For those people attending Calgary Wienerpawlooza we are offering a special discount. Use coupon code CALGARY when purchasing from our Etsy Shop and receive 10% off your purchase.
We hope that Calgary Wienerpawlooza is a huge success!
What a great summer! Don’t you agree? We just can’t believe how fast it flew by! It feels like just yesterday that we were at Wienerfest!
September is a big month for S’wag full of lots of opportunities.
First up we have donated pieces to help raise money for 3 different rescues. All events are happening on the 22nd or 23rd of September. If it isn’t already a national day for Dachshund rescue then it should be! If you are in the Victoria BC area we will have a piece at Doggy Idol, Calgary at Wienerpawlooza, and in Massachusetts at Cape Cod Doxie Day! If you are in these areas make sure that you attend these events and support our rescues! The people behind these events are doing amazing things!
Here in Ontario we too will be celebrating and raising money at Wienerpawlooza on the 22nd! S’wag is taking pre-orders for the event as we cannot sell at the event. Our friends from Wienerwares are also taking pre-orders! We are really looking forward to the event and to meeting all sorts of new people and hopefully seeing some familiar tails!
If you can’t make it out to Wienerpawlooza S’wag will have a few items for sale at the Queen West Art Crawl in Trinity Bellwoods Park on the 15th and 16th of September. (We will be at the SarahAnaDesigns booth since we are in fact the same person.)
We would like to thank everyone who has ordered their S’wag already and those who order in the future. 10% of each of our sales will be donated to the Canadian Dachshund Rescue.
We hope to see you out at one of these events!
I am really looking forward to Wiener-Paw-Looza on September 22nd! Wiener-Paw-Looza is the annual picnic of the Canadian Dachshund Rescue. It is a day long event with races, costume contests, a BBQ and lots more!
S’wag will be attending this event as a vendor, however, money cannot be exchanged on the premises so it will be pick up/promotion only on the day of the event. Items can be ordered ahead of time from our Etsy Shop. Use Coupon Code WIENERPAWLOOZA so that you are not charged shipping!
S’wag will be donating 10% of each sale to the Canadian Dachshund Rescue.
Wiener-Paw-Looza takes place from 11-3 at Picnic Area B, Wildwood Park, Mississauga, Ontario.
(Is September 22nd International Dachshund Day or something? I know of 3 Dachshund events being held this day! haha.)
