Puppy Popper Debut $6.95
I love when new ideas come along, our store is filled with them. When an idea comes along from someone I love, well, it makes me proud. My daughter, who many may know also owns The Velvet Frog, a young contemporary apparel store inside our store, decided to work on another idea to make money while her Velvet Frog funds go back into the business. So, she launched a doggie treat line – Peanut Butter Puppy Poppers. She developed the recipe with online ideas, created the bag and cut them in the shape of kitties. (Wrigley loves the idea, Vegas & Artoo – not so much). We sampled Puppy Poppers at our store on Saturday and sold the first bag. Then, customers came back with their dogs for a sample. All dogs agreed – Puppy Poppers were Delicious. So, now I watch my favorite vendor create and sell something new for our store. Proud? Oh, yes. Excited to have a new product in our store? Absolutely, feel it fills a niche in our growing pet section.
For parents who have children graduating from college in an uncertain economy, remember the little TCU Fashion Merchandising graduate who took all those negatives and turned them into a bow-wow-winning recipe!
