April's Freebie Friday
As many of you know, we are huge fans of small businesses! We have met some of our favorite brands through Instagram and on recommendation of our friends. I decided to start this “Freebie Friday” as a way to give back to say thanks for your continued friendship and support! There will be one Freebie Friday each month. It’s a quick giveaway, as the giveaway will end Monday night, so be sure to get your entry in!
Without further ado, I’m happy to announce that this week’s Freebie Friday is from the wonderful bandana company @jamonry! (www.etsy.com/shop/jamonry) I first learned about this Pittsburgh-based Etsy shop through Instagram. I had entered their contest to win a free bandana each month. Sadly, we didn’t win :-( but I was so intrigued about their bandanas that I went online to their shop to take a look around. First thing I noticed was their price. The majority of their bandanas are in the $5.00 - $7.00 range (not including shipping, but orders over $25.00 can qualify for free shipping). Typically, I would say most dog bandana companies we see sell their bandanas for $12.00 - $15.00.
The next thing that jumped out to me is that Jamonry makes her bandanas with snap closures! :-) And not just one snap, but two! You have no idea how happy this made me! It sounds like a small detail, but it’s something I truly like in a bandana for Bruce Wayne. I do not like to keep tie-on bandanas on him for longer than it takes me to snap a picture, as Bruce Wayne has had throat issues, in which he has been treated for by his vet. Therefore, I like to keep as much pressure off his neck as possible. (As many of you know, I’m a paranoid wacko when it comes to any medical issue with Bruce Wayne!) The snap bandanas are fitted perfectly for Bruce Wayne so that it is snug, without any pressure on his neck. The second snap is simply an added bonus ….. In case “Fido” gained a few extra winter pounds ;-)
Finally, something that Jamonry does that I didn’t think of to be a huge deal at the time was that all their bandanas are double-sided. At first, I just thought of it as an added feature, as I would buy my bandanas based on the front printed side, however, I’ve come to realize what a great extra this is. It truly is like getting 2 bandanas for the price of 1. While the backside isn’t a print fabric, the plain colored fabric is nice for everyday wear and/or our IG posts when we don’t want it to appear too busy!
Don’t take my word for it though. You can check out their site www.etsy.com/shop/jamonry or enter this giveway to win 2 bandanas; 1 bandana will be of your choice and the other bandana will be the Batman bandana, of course! Entering is simple; click on any of the pictures in this post to be redirected to the Jamonry Etsy site, take a look around and in a comment below, tell me which bandana you would choose if you win. Please, also include your name, email and/or Instagram handle so I can contact you should you win.
