Here is a list of a few CatConLA vendors who create products for the home, and some sentimental ideas that you can use to memorialize your loved ones who have passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
Ah! Look at the cool cookies you can make with these rolling pins by Sweet Rolling Pins! Their splendid and clever designs aren't limited to cats, either! I saw skulls, Christmas trees, apples, anchors and so many more at their website. See them in person at CatConLA or on Facebook.
This California based company makes soy candles in small batches, using eco-friendly ingredients and lovely scents. Many of their candle jars are decorated with cat theme images, making these a sweet addition to your home, or a thoughtful gift. Shen & Sam Co. will be at Booth #327 at CatConLA.
An artist who works with porcelain and pottery, Cara Long is creating useful household items, such as salt and pepper shakers, with graceful shapes and lovely feline details. She also has created lidded vessels that can be used to contain cremated remains. After enjoying her Instagram page, you can see her work at CatConLA in 2016 at Booth #226.
The "Rainbow Bridge" is a very difficult bridge to face, and when you've just said good bye to a pet who has crossed it, a lot of sentimental feelings are stirred up. Glass artist Merry Coor will be at CatConLA with her hand made glass beads, which incorporate a small quantity of your loved one's cremated ashes, offering some solace to pet parents who are dealing with the pain of loss. The finished beads have a luminescent, ethereal quality and can be worn every day, or for special occasions. Merry will be at the show with information about her process, and she can answer your questions about custom work. She's at table L1-35. http://ashbeads.com/
There are so many vendors participating at CatConLA in 2016, and I'm so excited about all of the creativity! I can't cover everyone in my blog posts, so please feel free to give yourself (or your friends) a shout out in the comments, and share this post.
