Oklahoma City welcomes several popular equine events to town in June. Area hotels will be brimming with cowboys and cowgirls from throughout the country.
No western enthusiast’s trip to Oklahoma City is complete without taking the short drive to Norman, Oklahoma. After all, one of America’s most beloved actors, James Garner, was born in Norman. The community recently recognized Garner, who played Bret Maverick in the popular 1950’s television series, with a 10’ outdoor statue in his honor.
Just down the street from James Garner Plaza, there’s another must-see for any true cowboy and cowboy: Rawhide is a retail store that features the highest quality, luxury western furniture and fashions in the area
Rawhide’s owner, Angie Bailey, knows more than a little about the ranch lifestyle. Raised on a cattle ranch and wheat farm in Oklahoma, Angie has become a well-known interior designer. She has devoted her design talents to offering shoppers some of the most sophisticated western home furnishings and clothing in the area.
Rawhide is truly a family affair. Angie’s husband, Jim, is an equine veterinarian and a Super Senior Steer Roper. Her daughter, Dakota, is also involved in the store, learning the business of interior design and fashion from her mom.
There’s something for everyone who loves the ranch lifestyle. Visitors are encouraged to spend the afternoon browsing among Rawhide’s wide selection of home furnishings, men’s and women’s clothing, designer boots, belts, buckles, jewelry, and range wear.
Rawhide is committed to preserving our Western culture. This Spring, Rawhide donated a pair of Lucchese 125th Anniversary Limited Edition Boots (valued at $12,500) to be raffled off through the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. The raffle will take place during the Prix de West Art Exhibition and Sale at noon on Saturday, June 14th. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
Rawhide is located at 209 E. Main Street in Norman. When traveling on Interstate 35, simply take the Main Street exit in Norman and drive two miles east into downtown. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. (Rawhide is closed on Sunday.) For more information, travelers may call (405)-366-9290 or shop on-line at www.shoprawhide.com.
