Our Beginnings

It all started at a flea market
“Skip's had its humble beginnings. Just me, my wife, a truck full of boots and shoes, and being at the flea market every sunday by 6am.”

Skip never set out to create the most successful Western Outfitter in Florida. He’s not a country boy or a cowboy outta Texas. It was in Chicago that he found the two loves of his life: his wife and cowboy boots. And it’s been those very two godsends that inspired Skip's Western Outfitters as we know it.

Fun Fact:

Why “Skip's”? In short, when Skip first came to the U.S. he spoke with an Australian accent- and friends would call him Skip (as a kangaroo would skip). Now you know!

In 1983, Skip built his first building in Osteen, Florida among horse properties and citrus groves, where they are headquartered to this day, and has two central Florida retail stores Osteen and Daytona Beach. Skip’s Western Outfitters has outfitted its customers from head to toe. Our company is most noted for keeping its loyal customer base, but is always ready to attract a new generation of shoppers.

We at Skip’s offer brands that have a rich, deep heritage that stand behind the quality of their products. Our staff is committed to meeting every customer’s need and budget.
