Bucket and Friends by Lion’s Market LLC, a family run business founded in 2016. A love for sewing developed into creating items both pets and pet owners love. Starting with her old sewing machine, Bucket and Friends founder, Lindsey, began playing with fabric and creating things for her furry family. Needing more space, she eventually converted her master bedroom into her workshop. Her many cats and dogs (and their cousins) are welcome testers to many prototypes, including Bucket the company’s name sake.
We believe our pets are our family and we want them to have the best. When designing and developing new products we keep that in mind. Our products are proudly handcrafted in the USA.
Pet moms and dads love our fleece coats, t-shirts, and neck warmers to keep their pets warm and looking good. These easy to put on clothes are great for a cool spring and fall day, a blustery winter walk, or even in the summer in the chill of the air conditioning.
Kitties love our stimulating catnip toys that excite their senses. We use an organically grown “rough cut” catnip. This type of cut lends itself to higher potency that keeps the cats coming back to their toys over and over again.
Owner, Bucket & Friends
Lindsey’s love of sewing and her furry family were a perfect match to create Bucket & Friends. She strives to create clothing and accessories for pups and kitties that both people and their pets will love.
Our colleague, Annie Marie, is the inspired genius behind our catnip mice! Out of her passion helping people and their pups, she crafts and sells natural and organic shampoo for pups and their owners too! All of her highly-recommended products can be found at lionsmarketbyann.com.
Kristen is our coordinator and web genius. She carefully coordinates our market and show schedule and designs and maintains our website.
Quality Control Manager
The baby of the family and very much a mama’s boy! Bucket loves to give hugs and follow you wherever you go, a very faithful companion. Always wanting to know what is going on…we have dubbed him the quality control manager.
Chief Bed Tester
Jesse was added to the crew in 2018. Jesse is a sweet little boy who knows his mind! He loves to snuggle up in one of the many beds around the house so we made him the chief bed tester.
Chief Shipping Clerk
She is our adventure kitty known to hang from the tops of doors or ride on your shoulders she loves people and is always ready for a scratch between the ears. Like any good cat, if there is a box she is in it. Because of her affinity for boxes we have made her the chief shipping clerk
Adopted with Lucca, Jackson was added to the family in 2017. He LOVES to eat and tell the dogs who is boss (he is especially fond of Bucket) so we made him the Personnel Manager.
Another kitty added to the family in 2017. Lucca is not afraid to make his presence known with his unique chatter. He is our new Communications Manager.
Ollie was adopted as a senior and had one of the sweetest personalities you can find. Ollie is greatly missed. His personality warmed the heart and home.
