Pawmazing offers unique gifts for pets and owners alike

From the trails of Arapaho National Forest to the convenience stores on US Highway 40 pets, and dogs specifically, are integral parts of the culture of Grand County.

Ted and Dolly Farmer, owners of the pet supply and gift store Pawmazing in Grand Lake, know how important pets are to the residents, second-home owners and tourists that frequent the area. Their very unique shop offers a wide assortment of gifts, for both owners and pets, and supplies you are not likely to find in any of the big box pet stores; all with a rustic mountain theme.

Pawmazing, which opened for business on April 3, carries dog- and cat-themed gifts for owners, “so people can show their pawsenality,” said store owner Dolly Farmer. Included in their line of pet-themed personal accessories are jewelry, scarves, coffee mugs, housewares, Christmas ornaments and more.

“Our biggest selling items are our puppy pastries,” said Dolly, speaking about Pawmazing’s line of sweet treats for your four-legged friends including cookies, cupcakes and ice cream cones, all specially designed for pets. In keeping with their mountain theme they also have a wide variety of wild game meat sticks made from elk, bison and wild boar and also have rabbit jerky for dogs.

The main focus of their store in Grand Lake is on pet-themed gifts for owners to enjoy. Dolly described the store as being about 30 percent pet supplies and 70 percent gifts. Their website, still in production and expected to go live soon, will primarily focus on pet supplies.

The store recently received a bit of national publicity when film crews from the television show Lake Front Bargain Hunters on HGTV were in Grand Lake filming for an upcoming episode and filmed inside the store. Ted said the episode is scheduled to air sometime in August.

Pawmazing is located at 1133 A. Grand Ave. in Grand Lake at the far eastern end of Grand Avenue. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Saturday, though the Farmers explained they will likely expand their business hours during the summer season. Their Facebook page is up and running and can by found by searching for Pawmazing Pets.
