If you’ve been waiting for a Shop Fauna update, I have updates! The site is live with over 70 Kansas City local shops and more being added every day. The UI is fantastic. I love the flow of browsing the site. Also, Nadine, Shop Fauna’s creator, has been taking wonderful pictures of a lot of the shops so it really is like window shopping! Go check it out.
If you’re a shop owner, you can sign up right on the site. The user side is currently in development, but if you want to be a user, you can sign up for the wait list and we will email you when it’s finished.
Shop Fauna’s mascot is a fawn. We’re all very much in love with the fawn. So I had a swatch of fawn fabric printed from Spoonflower.
I’m probably going to make buttons from the swatch. I made one last night and it turned out well.
You might see Shop Fauna around town. We are sponsoring the West 18th Street Fashion Show and plan to do more with other KC events. Also, follow Shop Fauna on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Nadine posts and tweets a lot of great tips about shopping locally, what’s going on in KC, which shops sign up, etc.
Even if I wasn’t part of building the idea, I would still love it. I’ve had the best time playing with the site and it’s already helped me find mother’s day, father’s day, and birthday gifts. Plus, I’ve bought a few things for myself…
