I love finding local small businesses to support, especially ones that make quality products and give back to charities. That’s why I choose to support Scotty’s Bow Ties, located in Dallas, Texas!
Scotty’s Bow Ties doesn’t just make bow ties, they make bandanas, bows, flower accessories, and vinyl add-ons to customize your purchases! Each of their online sales gives 10% back to rescues and other animal charities. So while you shop for cute accessories to show off on Instagram, you are also helping animals in need!
Let’s get to know the owner of Scotty’s Bow Ties, Cheryl, a little better!
How did you get started with your business?
I fell in love with Scotty after seeing him wearing a bow tie in his adoption picture on PetFinder! I knew I just had to have him and started making bow ties for him and his fellow foster friends still at the rescue! Soon enough I had so much fabric that I wanted to expand and Scotty’s Bow Ties was created! Even though we started S.B.T. because of our love for bow ties, about 90% of our sales are actually bandanas! In addition, 10% of our online sales are donated to rescues and other animal based charities.
Tell us about your pet(s)!
Scotty is a gray Bichonpoo mix (we did the DNA test earlier this year) and he is about 3 years old! He loves loves loves to play fetch – his record is 4 hours straight!
What and who influences your work?
Whatever cute fabrics I can find! I love to shop on Etsy and Spoonflower but you can never go wrong with Joann’s.
What is/are your favorite pet brands and why?
Scotty loves GoDog Toys, ChuckIt, and Nerf Dog Toys – those are his favorite!
2020 has been a female dog… What do you have planned for your company in 2021?
Towards the end of January 2021 we will be taking a break for maternity leave! Hooray for babies! We will see what parenthood holds before we decide where to go with S.B.T. next!
