Happy Birthday, Pet Shop! (And Something for You)


UPDATE: The response to our birthday celebration has been outstanding! So much so, that we’ve hit our earliest holiday sell-out to date for custom portraits (aka, the maximum number of paintings I can physically do before December 25th)! We have only a couple of openings left, after which, custom listings will become deactivated. To the moon and back, thank you for the continued support.

While we were out, The Pet Shop celebrated its 4th year of business! Happy birthday, Shop! Every year since you all pushed me to get my little business up and running (a thousand times, thank you!), we’ve taken a time out to simply say: Have we told you lately that we love you?

Our online store unofficially launched in 2008, but our grand, grand opening was announced a year later. Since then, I’ve painted well over 800 portraits (!), began giving back 10% to our furry BFFs, and without a doubt, you all have been the best clients imaginable. Behind the scenes, I’ve had my ups and downs as any shop would (and as a result, Scott too!), but at the end of the day I remember, I’m painting pets. I get to work with people that love their pets so much, they’ve asked me to honor them! And that? That’s pretty cool. My kind of people.

So to celebrate – for 2 days only! –  everything in The Pet Shop is eligible for 15% off when you use the code BDAY15, including art prints, gift certificates, pet prints and of course, custom portraits! There are a few things to mention, such as:

  • Promo runs through midnight CST, Tuesday, September 23rd.
  • Promo cannot be applied towards past or existing orders.
  • Our current turnaround time for a custom portrait is up to 9 weeks, so now is the time to check off your holiday shopping list. ‘Tis the season! (No, seriously, ’tis the season.) And keep in mind that if you have limited access to pet photos, gift certificates are always the best solution.

And, and! Friday, October 24th will be the last day to place custom orders for a timely Christmakuh delivery – but we have sold out sooner in previous years (in which case, we’ll let you know!). Visit The Pet Shop, right here.

    Kim, congrats on 4 amazing years!!! I’ve loved virtually watching your business grow and thrive.

    Also, what timing – I just clicked over to your blog so that I could access the pet shop and order a painting of my pup who left us in December. What a sweet surprise!ReplyCancel
