This week we are featuring Rickie from TheLandLockedDog! Rickie makes stunning hand stamped jewelry and keychains that we all love! Here is her story:
“It began with all natural, holistic dog treats and became so much more! My shop was originally Sophie’s Seabiscuits and opened in 2010. I gave the shop a hiatus of a year when opening a boutique in Feeding Hills, MA in 2011.
The store came and went but I found my real passion of handstamping. Handmade stamped tags were added to the shop in September of 2012. I’ve picked up a lot of furry family members along the way. It’s been a ride but a lot of fun!
Due to the economy, I found overhead for the boutique not cost effective and closed the doors of The Landlocked Dog. I now have the time to devote to my real love of handstamping and plan to expand from only dog tags, into gifts and jewelry items.
I have done all of this with constant companionship of my three dogs and three cats, who keep me company, make me stop stamping every once in a while and always keep me laughing.
Due to the popularity and uniqueness of my guitar pick keepsakes, I will opening a new Etsy shop, OnePickPony. It will be open by the 1st of April and will be the first shop on Etsy featuring bronze picks!”
