Neighbourhood Style: Zafder

Posted on December 12, 2011 by Luis Valdizon

Our friend, Zafder, runs Okanagan Fair Flowers located in the Similkameen valley (South Okanagan) specializing in wild foliage. Zafder often bring our shop apples on branches, Queen Anne's lace harvested from the roadside, seeds and pod. During the holiday season, he is also known for homemade Christmas trees made out of driftwood and fallen branches he supplies to Southlands Nursery. Zafder came to our shop unexpectedly one day with praises of our slightly disheveled flower arrangements and since has dropped off numerous unique gifts. We love him for what he does and his personal style which more than often consists of coveralls, plaid shirts and patterned handkerchief.
