… by starting at Paco Collars! Come join us this Friday August 7 for a little pre-art walk warm-up at the store. We’ll be serving wine, cheese, and good conversation from 5-7 and then heading on down to the main event after closing time. If you’ve never been to Oakland’s Art Mumur, we highly encourage […]
What’s a Fetching Tag, you ask? Only the most kick-ass, high quality pet tags you can get your hands on. 100% handcrafted in the USA from aircraft aluminum, they’re light as a feather but built to last.

Back when our website debuted in its current incarnation 4 years ago, getting our first web order was really exciting. Then order 100 was a landmark, as was order number 500, as well as the numbers in between that made us giggle (69, 666, etc). But now we’re creeping up on our 1000th web order […]
Yes, it’s official, our new storefront is open for business. Technically we’ve been open all week but who’s counting (wait, are you?). In addition to Paco Collars, this month we’re featuring goods from Idawg Clothing, Aroo Studio, and Mijo and Bambi as well as the artwork of Jesse Freidin.
