I couldn’t be more excited to have this young lady kick off my new feature
She truly is an everyday cowgirl.
She may not saddle up and work cattle on a daily basis
but she has a true cowgirl spirit!!!!
Have you ever heard of the Fort Western Stores?
If not you need to check them out NOW!
They are known for their great selection and reasonable prices.
They carry everything from the tradition cowboy attire to
fashion forward statement pieces.
They also carry a wide variety of home decor, gifts and tack supplies.
Pretty much everything that has to do with the western lifestyle can be found at The Fort,
either online or in one of their 3 retail locations.
Kristin is the 3rd generation to be running the family business of 40 years.
At only 22 years old Kristin is opening her own Fort Western Store in Columbus Nebraska.
The grand opening is TOMORROW, November 30, 2012.
(The other 2 are located in Lincoln and Nebraska City)

Being the manager of her own retail store is no small task,
especially during the holiday season.
But this is nothing new to Kristin. She has worked at The Fort since High School.
She is no stranger to the long hours and MANY duties to keep
a retail store running successfully.
She also has a great eye for fashion.
She is perfect girl to help you pick out your outfit for an
upcoming holiday party, rodeo, dance, date, or just a great fitting pair of jeans.
She knows how to work hard but she is not all work and no play
(I told you she has a true cowgirl spirit).
When not at work Kristin enjoys spending time with family, friends
and her boyfriend, Scott.
On weekends she can often be found at a concert or at a Husker football game!
Kristin is also learning how to team rope.
She is a spirited young lady and tells it like it is.
She might be little, standing at only 5 ft tall, but she is feisty.
When she finally gets home and is able to kick her boots off
she enjoys doing arts and crafts.
Kristin is a Country music fan and has good taste,
with her favorites being Miranda Lambert and Garth Brooks.
Now if that doesn’t tell you something about her…..
Garth = Classic, Traditional, True Country
Miranda = Fun, Wild, Feisty,
Kristin Thank you so much.
You are a great example of an “everyday cowgirl”.
Hard working, Driven, Determined, Strong willed, Feisty, Spirited, Honest
Best of luck to you and your new store!
If you have a chance to stop into the Fort in Columbus tell her
Suzi from chores and chandeliers said “HOWDY”!
