Raise your paws up
Dogs and furniture sometimes don’t mix, but they do at Art is Art. The consignment shop teams up with Paws in the City for a pet adoption event that can also help with your holiday shopping. The consignment shop will donate 10 percent of sales of its local art, modern furniture, jewelry, candles and more to help out Paws’ cause. And the dogs will be quite thankful for your help.
