How it all StartedThe Willie Wags was founded in January 2016 by Jamie Clark, a 30-something mommy, wife and multi-tasking maven. After years of owning her own small retail business, the concept was created one snowy Saturday afternoon at her dining room table after a long conversation with a local small business consultant.
Jamie believed a new retail concept based loosely on funky Maine dialect and expressions could help busy professional women discover, explore and support other female entrepreneurs. Inspired by spotlighting the best female owned businesses and products she could find, she hand picked, packed and shipped the very first Willie Wags packages out of her house in Maine. Since our first boxes shipped in February, our team has grown, we've traveled to NSS and Market in NYC and opened a brick and mortar retail shop in Downtown Bangor, Maine.
Not only is it The Willie Wags' mission to spotlight, market, sell and distribute products from women-owned small businesses it is our intention to give back and help them grow!
