We, as the small-town family behind the scenes of “The Little Outpost” are so excited to have the opportunity to get to know you and earn your business. When George Straight said, "it started way back in third grade;" little did we know that he was talking directly to us. Yes, we are grade school sweethearts, and just celebrated our 11-year wedding anniversary in 2020. Although the first kiss wasn’t on the school bus; it was on the playground, and the rest is history.
My name is Amanda and I am passionate about bringing all women and children products that fulfill their every need regarding fashion and fun, while keeping a family budget in mind. I know that this can be done without compromising on quality; but it takes an unimaginable time commitment and a good eye for the right look. That is why I’m so confident you and I are going to build such a phenomenal relationship together. Since most busy moms/women don’t have excess time to spend finding that perfect purchase; you can put the time saved towards quality, fun-filled time with your family, and let me take care of the rest.
Although a big portion of my focus is on clothing, don’t look passed the amazing gift items and fashionable decor; we are sure to have something the fits everyone’s taste.
Our brick and mortar store sits on Main Street of Wall; S.D. population 872. Both my husband and I were born and raised in this beautiful small town, and want to remain here to raise our family; but I want to bring my unique/classy style to the world. We are in the truest sense of the phrase “small town & country”, and proud of it.
While entering our final year of college at South Dakota State University, Kenny Chesney summed up our thoughts pretty well when he sang “There goes My Life,” after Ryan and I found out we were unexpectedly pregnant with our son. Although we didn’t foresee it right away, we found out what a true blessing our son (Teelan) was for us. Our college life changed dramatically after Teelan came, but we stayed committed to each other and to finishing our degrees, although we wondered a few times if we would succeed as a family and as college students. It was during these struggles we developed a deeper love for Christ, Who we strive to serve in our fullest capacity; and also we started to understand the uphill climb we were in for. However, we haven’t regretted a single choice we've made, and we strive to make our world a better place in all that we do.
Beings we both grew up in Wall, S.D., most of our family lives there and after college we knew that we wanted to raise our son in the same atmosphere we grew up in. My husband helped with the family agricultural operations upon graduating, which he still does today; but with a son and a baby girl on the way, my career had to be put on hold to be the best mom possible. Today we have 4 beautiful children (Teelan 12, Presley 8, Tenley 7, & and Ryer 2). It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t mention Mader, our chocolate lab, who has grown with our family.
When my husband and I turned 32 years old this year, we knew the time for me to pursue my dream had come. I’m so excited to bring an outstanding line of products to you that will enhance your look, your style, your confidence and leave a little extra room in your budget. Give me a chance to earn your business and we will develop a relationship that will last for many fashion trends to come.
