What is Cowgirl Swank? Well, it started out being my western bling retail business, but it has evolved into something more. I started Cowgirl Swank in March 2007. I sold a variety of women's western items including hair-on-hide handbags, Wildfire crystal belts, and my caps & visors. I design and make hair-on-hide, swarovski crystal caps and visors. I also put crystals on shirts, jackets, vests, etc. Needless to say, I definitely regret the handbag and belt portion of my business. The belts were incredibly expensive and I have literally had to beg people to buy them (for half of what I paid for them). So, I had a very bad experience in that portion of my business. My caps and visors are pretty popular and I have been doing quite a few brands (those of you with an ag background know what I mean). Overall, I am very proud of what I create. I have my own website: www.cowgirlswank.com. Please feel free to check it out.
I have decided to spread myself out a bit and venture into catering (of sorts). There are ranches in the area that hire catering companies to provide meals when they have big days (like branding, preg-testing, shipping, etc.). Most of these companies are over 100 miles away. I love to cook and I've decided to hang out my shingle for some of this business. I am anxious to see what direction it takes me.
