Unique shop open in Wykoff


Mon, Sep 29th, 2014
Posted in Wykoff Features

Whether you consider yourself a horse lover, a cowboy, or an equestrian, there is a newly opened business in Wykoff, Minn. that has people stopping in to find decorative and useful products. And if you are not the cowboy type, there are still many unique items to choose from.

The Painted Pony opened in March of 2014 at 106 Gold Street in Wykoff with a wide variety of useful and decorative items which are taken in on consignment.

Owner Sherrie Schmidt likes horses and knows a lot of people who like horses, so when she wanted to open a business, a western themed store was what she naturally was drawn to.

Schmidt says she has “always lived on a farm”, so after moving into town, being at The Painted Pony gives her the feel of the farm while living in town. The name of her business came together after trying to think of a name herself and asking friends and family for suggestions. A woman she works with suggested the name The Painted Pony and Schmidt decided that would be the name she would use.

Different types of clothing can be found in the store including shirts, vests, and jackets at reasonable prices with sizes ranging from child to adult. Much of the apparel is versatile and not necessarily western but could be pieced with western outfits.

There are home decor pieces such as homemade signs which include sayings such as “cowgirl tough” and other craft items. Gift items for the horse enthusiast in your family, such as books, bookends, and wall hangings can be found at The Painted Pony.

Necklaces, bracelets, and other jewelry are available, which makes it easy to put together and entire outfit, complete with accessories in one stop. One of those accessories could be any of the belts in the store, some of which have rhinestones.

Horse tack is in no short supply at The Painted Pony with saddles, spurs, halters, and more.

Of course, there are many types of cowboy hats and cowboy boots to choose from, as well, which are very popular according to Schmidt.

People who have shopped at the store have liked what they have gotten so much that they keep coming back. Schmidt says she has some awesome repeat customers that she appreciates very much. One never knows what they will find the next time they walk into the business as things are sold and new items brought in often.

Currently the hours vary at The Painted Pony .....
