Dogs of London (and beyond) turned up in their hundreds for some retail therapy at our first Pop-Up Dog Market in Chelsea on July 27th.
A quiet back street in Chelsea was turned into a parade of dogs of all shapes and sizes for the day as their noses led them towards the tempting smells created by Good Chaps, ByBenji, Woofs to Kittys, Esmaes Pantry and Barking Heads. Then after a quick photo on the red carpet and a bag of treats from The Dog Nutrionist, in they went with tails a wagging!
Inside they were treated to a feast of colour with fabulous products from RegandBob, Hiro +Wolf, Teddy Maximus, DogLDN and Smoozle and Bone. The humans love to have pictures and photos of us doggies so You and The Dog photography sessions were very popular and Steph Stewart Art was busy all day producing beautiful hand-drawn portraits.
Throughout the day visitors were entertained by some of London’s biggest doggie divas who strutted their stuff on the catwalk to model leads, collars, bandanas and bow ties. They all looked absolutely fabulous!
The market was a fantastic opportunity for dog owners to buy products from fabulous independent UK businesses and to hear the stories of and meet the faces behind those brands.
A huge thanks to everyone who came along and we also raised over £200 for DOTSLONDON.
Every dog left with a happy face, looking forward to getting home and sampling all their purchases and wanting to know when our next market will be. Watch this space for details of our Christmas Pop-Up Market and in the meantime we would love to see you at our End of Summer Party.
