WearWoof wants In Store Vendors

Hi, I am the Retail Coordinator at WearWoof, a nonprofit animal welfare organization in the North Hills. We are a women’s secondhand clothing store that is partnered with 32 local animal shelters and rescues. We raise money for our partners by selling new and gently used clothing, accessories, and shoes that are donated by local women and corporate sponsors, such as InStyle magazine.

I would like to bring in a local artisan about once a month to complement our sales and drive traffic to the shop. I am looking for artists that make women’s jewelry or accessories. Any pet or animal related products would be considered as well, and a connection with any of our shelter or rescue partners is a huge plus.

In lieu of a vending fee, we ask that you make a tax-deductible monetary donation (based on the day’s sales) or a product donation to be sold in the shop. A 6-foot table and chairs can be provided, as needed.

Please email Shannon at if you’re interested in working together.

You can learn more about WearWoof at Thanks!

Boutique 208, in downtown Pittsburgh, right across from Heinz Hall, offers artists the opportunity to work with other artists to allow each of them to have the benefits of having their own store, while sharing the cost of overhead and helping to cover the hours and other tasks needed .

Take a look at our Facebook page to see photos of the boutique:

As an artist member, you get all the benefits of owning your own store, while retaining a higher percentage of your profits than you would if you were doing it alone, not to mention the time savings you will experience by working together with other members to cover the store hours.

We feel that artists gain the most benefits by joining as a member, but we also offer the option to sell on consignment (60% to artist/40% to boutique) to select artists based on our product needs.

If you’re interested in becoming a member, or would like more information about consignment opportunities, please visit our blog for more info at
