Paws in Parnell
Posted on February 20 2018
To market to market....
On the first Sunday of every month, dog lovers of Auckland get their pooches down to the Paws in Parnell doggie market in Heard Park, Auckland. While their pugs hug and their cavoodles canoodle, owners can shop the unique range of NZ-made dog products the talented stall holders have on display.
Earlier this month, the Pet Connect crew held our first market stall at Paws in Parnell. Needless to say we were in our own little slice of doggie heaven. It isn't not often (enough) that the dog-to-human ratio is 2:1, and that it’s perfectly acceptable to get a big wet kiss from a random passerby.
Setting up our stall that morning, we weren’t really sure what to expect. Is anyone going to come in this rain?....Is anyone going to come to our stall?....Will they love our range?....Have we FORGOTTEN anything? The answer to all of these things was a resounding Yes. Yes, people came. Yes, they visited the stall. Yes, they loved the range... and yes we totally forgot to bring some stuff (whoopsy!).
We were so stoked that our products were received so well...and we know very well that without our superbly clever and creative suppliers, the Pet Connect stall would have been a fizzer (not to mention very very empty). So, we thought we’d give a well deserved shout-out to our Top 5 Sellers at the Paws In Parnell Doggie Market….
So there you have it. Market day at Paws in Parnell was a massive hit thanks to a bunch of incredibly talented Kiwi creators! Not just these five either - plenty more products were bagged up on market day. But at the risk of you all suffering a 12-page blog post, the top five seemed like a far more palatable number.
Paws in Parnell will be on again on Sunday 4th March before taking a hiatus for the colder (and wetter...and windier) months. Make sure y'all round up your hounds and get down to Heard Park from 10am! If you don’t come say hello, we’ll be pretty bummed...
