Farming Fashion


Old McDonald had a farm E-I-E-I-OAnd on his farm he had a goat (and a cow) E-I-E-I-O
With some cashmere here
And some cowhide there
Here a purse, there a wrap
Shopping is a fashion snap

Let’s clarify a bit. The farmer in this case is more of a designer. It’s a she, not a he, she doesn’t actually have a goat (she just knows someone else that does) and her name is not McDonald. Come to think of it, she’s not even old.

Pam Willcocks is a mom-entrepreneur, fashion designer and mom to 3 (yes 3) boys. Her company, Snapdragon Designs produces unique fashion accessories and cashmere products usually only accessible to those lucky central Canadians.

This coming weekend, Snapdragon is making a repeat appearance at the Calgary Farmers’ Market, back again after the resounding success of their inaugural visit to Cowtown in July.

This time, they are bringing a cache of sassy fall handbags, wallets, weekenders and totes. So, if you don’t mind comments like “ooh, I love your bag”, check out Snapdragon Design’s wares.
