We went in and out of stores in Cody. Many/most are designed for the tourist. They are fun to go into but, what if you want to see what real cowpoke wear and use? A little out of the main shopping area (just a little) we found Buckstitch. We walked in and immediately knew we finally found a "real" store. Wrangler jeans, shirts and boots that can be worn to work in..not just for show. They even have child sizes! Saddles, tack and canvas items that are used on a daily basis.
I did buy some souvenirs, not the kind made out of plastic..the kind made in the USA out of cotton!
We had fun looking around. The staff were awesome. They took time to help and answer questions. A cultural and shopping experience!
