Tell us about your business.

3 Paws, Inc. is a small ceramic company located in DeWitt, Nebraska. 3 Paws, Inc. was formed and created in 2007 by owner Shari Lewis. Through years of selling on a local level, we found our niche in the market by creating outdoor lawn décor and since have developed a line of appealing items for consumers to decorate their landscaping and patio areas . 3 Paws has become known for their 10” ceramic gazing ball which has been sold at a local, regional, national and international level. Products produced by 3 Paws, Inc. are 100% made in the U.S.A. with no imported materials. We utilize vendors on a local, regional and national level to show our support for American made products. We have been creating beautiful ceramic pieces for close to 15 years and have been in the business of selling them commercially for the past 6 years. 3 Paws, Inc. is a labor of love. It is a family owned business that is owned and operated by Shari Lewis and her daughter Adella Roger.

What makes your business stand out?

Each piece/item that is created by our artists is unique and has its own character.

What's the best business advice you've received?

It takes 99 "no's" before you get a "yes"! Sales is the hardest part of a business and a "no" can be a huge downer in a small business but counting the "no's" is motivational and a good way to move on to the next prospective buyer. We often laugh about our "no's" and move towards our goal of the one "YES".
