My story starts in Haskell County. I was born and raised on a farm and ranch but always had a desire to dress fashionably on my daddy’s farmer’s budget. My mother was never seen without her lipstick and only went to town in her Sunday best, so the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. After graduating college, I moved back home to help my mom update & renovate The Slipper Shoppe. I then moved to San Antonio, started my family and soon realized I wanted to go home and have a store of my own.
The Slipper Shoppe had been in business over 50 years when my mom bought the store in 1980. The Personality Shoppe had been in business over 50 years when I bought it in 1994. We merged the two together in the summer of ’94 to create a one stop “shoppe-ing” experience. My mom and I were able to work together to dress women head to toe – two stores under one roof. Growing up in Haskell County, I know the struggles of small town women when it comes to finding that perfect outfit without spending your savings or driving hours on end. We wanted to be the solution for that problem, and 18 years later we are still here and venturing out. Please join us on our journey!
