So fun…

29 Jun

About 4 years ago my friend Jennifer and I started up a company called Mink and Manure ~ Fashion for the Farmer’s Trophy Wife. We were both young with no kids and spent a lot of time lamenting about how it was so hard to find clothes that had a western element and wasn’t over-the-top hillbilly. So we started selling our own version of western wear! It was a blast, traveling together and holding trunk shows in homes across the province and at rodeos. I can’t even count the hours that we got to spend together doing what we loved…shopping! And of course selling clothes and meeting new people. Our business grew and the hours grew with it;  About 2 years into the adventure, my husband and I came to the decision that this was not meant to be my path. I am a nurse and didn’t want to give that up, and in order to continue with Mink and Manure while balancing home and family life, something was going to have to give. So I sadly handed over my half of the reins to Jennifer and she has been going full steam ahead ever since. She is nearing the 4th anniversary  of the company and is having a blast! I am so proud of her and all she has accomplished with our little dream, and came across this article that the Calgary Herald wrote about us in my archived files.

Thanks for the fun doll and great job!!

Love…

    Hey Cathryn…you’re so sweet, girl!
    I sure do miss having you as a business partner, but I’m so thankful that you are still one of my best friends and that you’re always there to give your (very honest) feedback when I ask for it. ;)
    Good times!!
    Love ya!
