Things for Wings Goodies
April 30, 2011 § 12 Comments
My Things for Wings perch sale order arrived!! I am so pleased with my goodies. I admit that what is pictured below is not everything, but I think I have enough of a reputation as a hoarder as it is, so I won’t give anybody any more photographic evidence to support that accusation. At the top left is Lola’s beautiful Pretty Noisy toy, which Danita was nice enough to customize with a stainless steel bell for extra noisiness. It is soo dainty and gorgeous– Danita hand-painted (using bird-sfae dye, of course) these gorgeous leaves onto it all in green. The coil of rope is all my new favorite stringing material, the slim paper cord. I actually got this as a free sample on one of my former orders and loved it so much that I had to buy more. It’s super thin (1/8″), especially compared to other paper cords I’ve used, but very strong and so much easier on the hands when it comes to tying lots and lots of knots! You can also unroll it to make a wonderful shreddable toy for the small or medium guys. Finally, there’s a selection of some of the perches I purchased: two chunky willow perches, an ocotillo perch, an elm perch, and a cholla perch.
I adore Things for Wings and strongly recommend them! They truly go above and beyond with customer service– any store that I’ve shopped at can attest to the fact that I am not an easy customer (in fact, I am a very annoying and picky one!). But Danita always accommodates my whimsies and requests with a smile, like the stainless steel bell I wanted. She also drives across the border to Washington state every single week, just to decrease the costs of shipping for her American customers. If that’s not awesome customer service, I don’t know what is! I love the store’s focus on natural items and really wonderful, natural, and barky woods. Hurry up and get in your perch orders now, though, because they are being discontinued! These awesome perches not only have amazingly fun and chewable bark, but they also have 100% stainless steel hardware too!
P.S. For those of you who expressed interest in the awesome Grey Feather Toys rope perches in my last post, they truly are awesome BUT just know that they are NOT on the website; you have to email Rebecca Wells as they are a custom item (meaning you can choose the exact length). Evidently Charles agrees with all of you that said they are gorgeous as he is having a bit of a love affair with his 🙂
