Yes, you read that right. We are giddy over being featured in the Wit & Wisdom section of Nordstrom. Not only are NOSE BUTTER and RELAX available on line via NORDSTROM website, but also in 55 stores. (I will have the complete list of stores tomorrow). This came about in a completely unexpected way. A year or so ago ETSY began a wholesale program and I immediately applied. To my delight, The Blissful Dog was accepted and I jumped right in and set up the wholesale line sheets. Those of you who know me know that I agonized over each and every image, but I got it done – whew! One day, a few months later, an email appeared and lo and behold, NORDSTROM was interested in adding a couple of our products to their Wit & Wisdom section in conjunction with their ETSY artisan program.
After doing the “OMG” happy dance (erase that mental picture, I know, sorry), of course I called my Mom first. You know, it does not matter how old you are, some things you just have to share with your mom first. I am not an overly superstitious person, but I decided to keep this info to myself until the products were actually in the store. I have all the confidence in the world, as you know, in the products…not so much in my ability to get all the myriad of shipping details handled perfectly. Luckily, everything made it out of the big woods and to the various Distribution Centers without a hitch. The hitches I did have we 100% self-created, of course! Hahaha.
The team at NORDSTROM buying offices were delightful to work with. Everyone I dealt with was kind, patient, enthusiastic about sharing hand-made products with their customers and FUN to get to know. Thank you, Tanner M., Stephanie B., Quyen P., Jim V., and the ETSY support team, Stephanie B. and Allie A. Ya’ll made this exciting experience even more fun, every step of the way.
If you feel so moved and have used NOSE BUTTER or RELAX pop over to Nordstrom website and leave us some love.
Thanks for being a part of my excitement.
For dogs with a fear of thunderstorms, spring and summer and the infamous 4th of July fireworks can be super scary events. Fear can range from a bit of nervousness and unease to sheer “tearing at the walls, yelping and peeing everywhere” panic.
THE BLISSFUL DOG WEBSITE UPDATE & OVERHAUL I know, I know, nobody really cares about all the nuts and bolts parts but me and my team. Alycia and Ashley act like they care, but I suppose they have to since I pay them. Hahaha. Anyhow, if you’ve shopped with us before you may have noticed […]
BOSTON TERRIER NOSE BUTTER REVIEW Never even heard of NOSE BUTTER until about two weeks ago. Once we started searching for something to help my Boston terrier we luckily stumbled upon it. The pictures below are over a four day time frame. Never in a million year would I have thought that the nose butter […]
