Awesome Store Great Selection
Mar 2021
Love this store. always stop in to see what is new. The last couple of years we ask for Chris from Florida. What an awesome young man. Very polite, helpful and knowledgeable. Love it when we are in the store and he shapes someone's hat! He does an awesome job. After reading your employee review found out that he is a US Marine and had a few tours to Iraq. Thank you for your service Chris! Thank you FM Light for hiring a veteran! Till next trip, Chris! Larry from LA

I am so glad that you appreciated the quality of our merchandise and that you received great service. Peter, our manager, truly does do a great job with all things in the store - including hat fitting. That first Stetson is always something to remember! I hope your husband continues to enjoy it for years to come. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We hope to see you again soon! - Lindsay, 5th Generation Owner

Beautiful historic store!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Excellent selection of western wear that is truly wearable for non-western folks! Great denim and accessories. Beautiful displays and good old country music playing in the background.
Fun experience and great historical place to visit-

As you can see in the photo - the staff is wearing their masks!

Great Store with a Great Selection
Jul 2020
F.M. Light & Sons was our first stop in Steamboat/Clark, CO after getting checked into our cabin. We saw signs for it from a good ways down the highway! They allow dogs in the store, which was a huge plus for us as my jack russell mix traveled with us. The selection is great, lots of western wear, souvenirs, memorabilia, and handmade soaps. I bought lots of postcards, a magnet, and some handmade soap that had puppy prints on it. My sister-in-law bought a very nice sweater/hoodie for a great price!

Super friendly

This store makes non-country folks want to buy boots! It was really neat. The staff was super friendly, and we were allowed to bring our puppy dog in to shop.

We believe just about everyone ultimately would enjoy having a pair of boots in their closet - but we may be a bit biased. : ) It is good to hear that you encountered good service in our store; and YES we love having dogs come in! Thank you for the review. - Lindsay Dillenbeck, 5th Generation Owner

All things western!
Jun 2020 • Family
This is a fun store! Lots of Steamboat memorabilia, boots and belt buckles! Men’s and women’s clothing plus a small but unique kids section. My kids always enjoy getting a picture on the horse statue out front.

Lightning (the horse out front) enjoys getting to give rides to all the kids that come by. Thanks for letting him show your kids around! We hope you stop by again soon and continue to have fun in our kids section. Thank you for the review! - Lindsay Dillenbeck, 5th Generation Owner

A Good Old Western Store
Sep 2019
You see dozens of large signs advertising this store as you approach Steamboat so we expected the store to stick out like a sore thumb but we missed it entirely on our 1st drive thru town. Lots of really nice western wear, gifts, etc. Don't expect any deals, it's good quality stuff, all top dollar. Lots to look at, nice staff.

We are happy you were able to eventually find us and that you appreciated the quality of our items. Be sure to look for our flags and fiberglass horse "Lightning" out front the next time you come through town. It can be hard, sometimes the trees do block the view a bit. Thanks for leaving a review and we hope to see you again soon! Lindsay Dillenbeck, 5th Generation Owner

Always Worth a Visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
More cowboy boots and clothes than anywhere else in town. FM lights has signs for about 50 miles outside of Steamboat. They have some off season clothes on sale too. Always worth a visit.
