Sandy's Pet Tag Hurricane Sale

As many of you know, I am the proud mama of an awesome beagle named Sandy. Her namesake storm is headed our way and she happens to be very excited that everyone keeps saying her name...especially those people on the Weather Channel. She thinks they are constantly talking to her! 
"I'm finally getting the recognition I deserve!"
In honor of Sandy's hurricane, Lofted Designs is offering a 20% discount to all canines (and kitties). Save on all pet tags (both ready-to-wear and custom styles). To browse all the ready-to-wear styles, visit this link. To order your very own custom dog tag, complete with name and phone number, visit this link.

"Look how fierce I can be!"

Enter coupon code HURRICANESANDY at checkout. Hurry...this offer is only valid through Friday, 11/2/12. We hope everyone stays safe!

York Village Marketfest

This Friday & Saturday!
October 12 & 13
9 AM-4 PM

York Village Marketfest Logo
Visit Lofted Designs this Friday and Saturday at the annual Marketfest celebration in historic York Village, Maine. The forecast looks lovely and I can pretty much guarantee you've never seen more beautiful fall foliage in a such a quintessential New England village setting. 

As if Lofted Designs wasn't enough of a draw, this festival features:

• Dozens of talented artists and craftspeople
• An amazing variety of delicious foods
• Sidewalk sales
• Musical performances
• A "prisoner performance" (WHAT?) at The Museums of Old York
• Petting zoo
• Scarecrow contest (vote for your favorites!)
• Book sale
• MUCH more! You can seriously make a whole day of it. 

I will have a booth just behind the big food tent on Friday and Saturday from 9AM - 4PM. Unfortunately, the event website has virtually NO information on it, however this newspaper article lists a schedule of events. I've also created a Facebook event with all the details.

Meet Sammy

Meet Sammy, one of my happy 4-legged customers, proudly wearing his "Rub My Belly" tag! He's had this tag on his collar for many years, and it looks to be holding up pretty well. 

"Belly Rub" tags and many other styles (including custom stampings with your pet's name, address and phone number) are available in my Etsy shop.
