Instead of two posts, I'm going to cram two things in here!
I started a new Etsy Shop for my pet products called Spirit PET Designs. I will be selling gemstone pet collar charms, as well as my specially made pet collars (with the option to add gemstones). I redesigned my old Oddball Cat Toys business to fit in the unique products. I still sell cat toys, and plan to add other products such as beds, in the near future. At this moment I'm not sure which direction Spirit Pet Designs will take. While I firmly believe in animal crystal healing, I know where are people out there who don't understand it, and I don't want to scare them off. At the same time, I see a HUGE value in helping animals when conventional treatments, training and drugs fail, and would love for this to become a major business. That is, focusing on animal healing (especially cats) with crystals.
As of right now, I have a bunch of gemstone collar charms listed. You can either buy them as fun bling for your pet, or more seriously, to help behavioral and health issues. I don't guarantee overnight success, miracles, or any of the sort. BUT, pets DO react to energies, and you will see result. I advise setting an intention with the crystal, and positively working with your animal, to achieve desirable results. The charms can easily clip on to an existing collar, or you can purchase a special Spirit Pets collar! The collars, if you remember, have gem chips attached to a cool, durable design.
I don't want to talk too much about Spirit Pets, since its a break out business from Spirit Gem Designs. I will be creating its own website in the very near future, so stay tuned for that!

The other thing I wanted to address is wholesale business. I absolutely DO IT! I love it! Yes! It doesn't matter whether you want a bunch of trees, or a bunch of bracelets. I have streamlined the process enough, and can get my supplies quick enough, to handle small or large orders. Depending on what you need, I offer discounts anywhere from 30-60% from my typical listed price. You have to be an established business. I do have a small section on the website here called "Wholesale" with more information and my contact information. I am requiring payment before any custom work begins. If you are buying current inventory, I do set a time requirement for payment, because I do not like holding work from paying customers. I don't think its fair.
As for future shows, I am up in the air as to the direction of things right now! I never should have added more projects to my plate! lol I don't know what to do next, what to pursue, any of that. I have to figure out which ideas are relevant to pursue, and which ones ought to be left alone.
