What ThePeachTree thinks of mvegan5's store:
It's funny that I have a chance to promote mvegan5 as she is the very reason I even know that etsy exists! We were on the same flight coming from San Francisco to NYC. She had one of her kitties with her that would be in the cabin and we struck up a conversation on our mutual love for animals. The rest is history!
Here's what I like about mvegan5's store: Her intense drive to help and protect animals in every way possible. My favorite item from mvegan5's store is: These rock my world :) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=5607693
