The "Jewel_Creatives" shop is a FUN shop to visit!

It offers a wide selection of catnip toys and pet accessories.  There are some of the cutest, and unique, toys that we've ever seen.

Jewelz, the proprietor, grows her own catnip and does not use any herbicides or pesticides.  She carefully harvests, dries, and stores each batch.

But Jewelz also sells a great selection of grocery bag holders, coasters, mats, and a selection of table settings.

Follow Jewelz's blog and on her Facebook page to be among the first to know of upcoming sales, new listings, giveaways, etc.
