White Owl, SD

White Owl, SD

I recently visited Chamberlain, SD for a wedding. One of my favorite places to shop is that huge antique store across the road from Al's Oasis. While looking around I visited with the owner and told him where I was from. Out of the thousands of items in this store, he says to me, "I have a postcard from White Owl!" Of course, I need to see this! Yes, I purchased it.

So have you ever wondered about where the name of my boutique? Why did I name it that or where is this?

It is a place 60 miles from anywhere. Located on Highway 34 between Sturgis and Pierre, SD. White Owl Creek twists and turns right through our 4th generation cattle ranch just 2 miles from this precious town. Currently, there is just a Post Office, where I ship all my packages, a church, a cemetery, and a hall that is used for special occasions like voting, bridal and baby showers, and even funerals.

White Owl, SD. A tiny blink and you will miss it but we love it here. We love to ship our packages to you from our tiny post office and we are proud to be a part of America's Heartland raising food for your table and working hard despite all odds. White Owl Creek Boutique was started to help support my family and to instill a good work ethic to pass on to the next generation of the Shaw family. Thank you for shopping with us.

Loved reading all about White Owl and the White Owl Store, Boutique. I think you have a destination and hope to visit on my way to the Black Hills in the fall of 2022. I read about you in my favorite magazine. SOUTH DAKOTA Magazine. Great article and wonderful welcoming photos.
