ViolettaGiftsEtc...To bring joy to cats and their owners alike!

I've been thinking about starting my own handmade business for a long time. I've had the knowledge and experience in making things and many ideas, I just never had the time. Recently I was provided with a rare and accidental opportunity to slow down from the daily grind; this allowed me to regain my inspiration and to begin making things again.

I started with a project very near and dear to my heart. I'm a cat lover and my immediate family members all have cats; I until recently had two of my own and now, it's just my girl Daisy. I noticed when I bought catnip toys, that a lot of times they wouldn't attract my cats the way they ought to. So I opened up a few of them only to find that either there was almost no catnip in them (just polyester stuffing) or very little but stale catnip, which had been sitting on the pet store's shelves for months I would assume. So I decided to begin making catnip toys, filled with only little to no stuffing (100% cotton only) and organic catnip, which will be stuffed into the toy within 24 hours or less before being shipped out. This way the toy will be quite fresh when it reaches the consumer and the cats will enjoy it more. I tested a few sample toys out with cats in my acquaintance and to my enjoyment, they got rave reviews from my feline audience!

As I was enjoying creating various accessories and have come up with plans to make many more, I decided to dedicate my shop as a "gift shop", so you can not only buy a present for your little companion (which is my primary focus), but also a little something for yourself or your loved ones; whether it's a birthday present, stocking stuffer or just a little token of appreciation. As a fashion lover, I plan on stocking my store with various fashions and accessories over coming weeks and months, so those of you who don't necessarily want a catnip toy will also have something to buy :)

ViolettaGiftsEtc. is my branch of hand made accessories, small home decor and organic catnip toys for our furry companions. Everything is handmade and made with the idea to make us feel good and happy! All catnip toys are filled with organic catnip no more than 24 hours before being shipped out, to ensure the freshness and longevity of the catnip inside the toy for as long as possible after you receive it. Once I fill the toy, I will seal it in a ziploc bag before shipping, in order to keep it fresh during its journey to you. I am committed to making sure my customers enjoy both their shopping experience and their purchases, and I welcome all feedback to making your experience even better!
