Sugar Plum Collars
I don't own a dog but the collars at Sugar Plum Collars jumped out at me no less because of it. Sewn with fabric that is bright and colorful, each one is adorable. The patterns are fun and certainly not ones that you have ever seen used for a dog collar before. A Sugar Plum collar would definitely make your pup the most unique on the block.
Christine Schultek, owner of Sugar Plum Collars, understands that fashion doesn't need to take a backseat when it comes to pet accessories. Her collars are hip and add the perfect touch of style to your already cute bundle of fur. Find deals on the shop's Facebook profile, and take a look at some of the pets in the "Sugar Plum Pets" club on Schultek's "Garden Party" collar, the colors are so vibrant and such an interesting contrast of colors.
What advice do you have for people interested in starting an online store? How do you make the separation between your store and your day job/personal life?
My advice for people wanting to start their own online store is really think about what you would find fun to make or do (no need to add a job to your already busy life). Just have fun with it!
As for separating your personal life with your store, just take out 1 hour of your day to set aside to your store advertising and such. If you have kids maybe make sure you create after they go to bed, or while they are in school. Family should always come first. Just make it count!
