Next month will mark the first anniversary of the launch of my CLASSIC KIPPERS COLLECTION of bow ties at JOHN PICKENS CLOTHIER. That will certainly be an exciting milestone, but CLASSIC KIPPERS and I have some awesome news to share with you -TONIGHT!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
My CLASSIC KIPPERS’ COLLECTION is getting ready to be unveiled at THE FABULOUS
OLVINE’S at 2405 Rice Blvd. in HOUSTON, TEXAS!
Yes, it’s true! My friend Miss Izzie, a star in her own right and the most gorgeous Sheltie ever and her mom, are going to carry my collection of ties in their chic store in Rice Village!
Izzie has but to pick up the phone and her wish is my command. You see, when I was going through my two most serious surgeries, Izzie led the Prayer Warrior charge. From her woof to God’s ear! I am eternally grateful to her, her mom, Sonja Fitzpatrick and all of her hundreds of followers!
We are looking forward to doing business together. You see, the profits from my Classic Kippers’ ties, which are sold in Shreveport, stay in Shreveport to help other abused and abandoned animals like myself! Likewise, profits from ties which Miss Izzie will sell at OLVINE’S , will stay in Houston to help the myriad of poor and abandoned animals there. That’s my policy. I mean, those that do the work should reap the benefits! N’cest ce pas? It’s only the proper thing to do! My dream to pay forward my good fortune to help other rescues is expanding to the LONE STAR STATE!
Thank you Izzie!!!
I am so excited to be showing in such a chic venue. I checked out OLVINE’S this summer while vacationing at the Hotel ZaZa! They weren’t open at the time, but I got to peer in the windows. I certainly hope that my nose prints weren’t too noticeable!
Today I was very busy AND nervous, as I packed up a lovely sampling of my ties, story cards, a display base and 20″x 30″ photo of moi! I even wrote out an inventory sheet and personal letter to them -ALL BY MYSELF!
I thought that taking pen to paw lent that certain custom touch to the order. I know that they will appreciate my attentive service. Let’s face it, in this day and age of super technology, old school personal service, including a handwritten note, has just about gone the was of the mastodon!
Tomorrow morning Mom is driving me to the UPS store to ship my package and Miss Izzie will be on the other end to receive it. I just know that she will unpack them with great care and display them with her usual panache!
I doubt that I will be able to sleep tonight, Felix Peach promised to sing me a song to help me doze off, but I just know that I won’t be able to sleep….
