Pet stores around the world are selling items from famous pet brands like Vetstreet and Petfinder, but some of them may have the most unusual pet supplies they offer.
The shelves are crammed with rare and unique items from companies like Petfinder.
Now, a new documentary is highlighting the unique items they’re selling, including a collection of old photos, vintage boxes, and even a brand new pet bed.
The film, which is titled “Pet Supply Town,” is due out on Nov. 27 and is directed by Ben White and written by Michael Wootton.
In it, we learn how pet owners and collectors get into the hobby and find new and interesting items for their pets.
“We have a pretty amazing assortment of items that we can’t even imagine,” said White.
“It’s kind of a rarefied atmosphere.”
The documentary tells the story of a local veterinarian named Mike, who sells a variety of items including dog collars and leash clips, dog bedding and other dog accessories, a pet-friendly bed, and a pet pillow.
“This is what we do.
I’m a vet, and I have this stuff,” Mike said.
“I’m kind of like the hippie of pet supply stores.”
One of his biggest sellers is a “Cargo Cone” of old and worn-out, pet-related items.
The Cone, which includes a crate, is usually stuffed with old, used or unused pet supplies.
“When I’m in my garage and I’m cleaning, I always go to my old dog crate,” he said.
Mike also sells a collection with a collection by an anonymous collector that features items from a few of the world-famous pet brands, including Vetstreet, Petfinder and Petey Maravich.
“If you have a particular brand, I think that it’s a little bit more unique,” he explained.
“But if you’re looking for a particular kind of item, it’s probably going to be a better way to find something, than just going to a store and finding that one.”
“I think that the people who own those brands, are really smart people.
They know what they’re looking at,” said Woott, who also co-founded a pet clothing company called the Petstore.
“There’s definitely a niche of people that have the right stuff.”
White and Wootts team are excited to take their pet supplies to the next level.
“Our goal is to make sure that we have some of the very best and most unique items that people can find in a pet supply store,” White said.
The documentary includes interviews with pet owners who sell old and vintage items and collectors like Woottt who say they want to help their friends find their favorite items.
They say the film is a great way to learn more about what the industry is all about.
“The way I view it, the documentary will probably change people’s lives,” Woot said.
