Prepping for the UN

The DachshundUN  is coming to Harbourfront Centre on February 28 – March 3 – less than a month away! I feel like I already can’t contain myself!

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!

S’wag in The City

We are so happy to announce that S’wag is now available at the Centre Shop at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto!

We are also still available at Cosmopawlitan at 478 Queens Quay West and online at ArtsyDog, PetMyWiener (Not all jewellery is S’wag) and on Etsy!

Calgary Wienerpawlooza

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!

September

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!

Doggy Idol

Saturday, September 22, 2012 is the event Doggy Idol – Dog Days of Summer Fair in Victoria, British Columbia. The event is part of a series of events put on in support of small animal rescue organizations in the region.

Doggy Idol is a day filled with lots of fun activities including a walk-a-thon, fashion show, trade show, photo contest, educational seminars and of course a talent show!

Unfortunately S’wag cannot attend this event due to a prior commitment to Wiener-Paw-Looza here in Ontario (and also due to distance!) but we are sending a few pieces of our jewellery in our place!

Since we cannot attend we are offering those who can attend a discount in our Etsy Shop. Use Coupon Code DOGGYIDOL to receive 10% off your purchase.

We hope that everyone who attends has a fantastic time and that lots of money is raised in support of the local shelters!

Doggy Idol takes place at 11 o’clock at St. Lukes Church Hall. 3821 Cedar Hill Cross Road,Victoria, BC
$4 admission/ kids 10 & under free
Please bring used collars, leashes, etc. (in good condition) or unopened food to donate to pets on the street and get $1 off admission

Pet My Wiener

We are very happy to announce that we now have a few items up for sale on the ultimate Dachshund gift site petmywiener.com!

Petmywiener.com is the place to find all things doxie! They have merchandise ranging from home decor to clothing to drinkware to jewellery and even a section just for vintage! It is a doxie lovers dream! Plus, they have a pretty fun name 😉

The best part about it though is that 5% of each sale is donated to a Dachshund rescue or other organization helping underprivileged dachshund so not only will you be giving a friend (or maybe yourself) a gift, you will also be helping a doxie in need!

Check out petmywiener.com and find us under the Jewelry tab!

Ask Me Where My Wiener’s Been…

I have to say that one of the things I like best about my job is when I open up my e-mail to find a new order and the exciting moment that follows when I get to see where in the world I will be sending my jewellery!

I recently bought a map and started to mark on the map where I have sent my doxie jewellery! I brought the map with me to Wienerfest and it was a real conversation starter. I was told by previous customers places they had sent my jewellery or places they intended to send it. I even had a woman tell me she was going to send my business card to the breeder where she got her dog back in Germany!

So here is my list of places I have sent S’wag so far. If you have purchased a piece and sent it somewhere (or you live somewhere) that is not on our list we would love to hear about it! I think S’wag has travelled more places then I have! I can’t wait to see where S’wag will travel to next!
