Jim & Bobbi Jean Bell

Purveyors of OutWest Shop

We are passionate about the American West. The truth and the myth. We are Purveyors of Fine Western Goods. We scout for unique and distinctive apparel, accessories, home décor, and general merchandise that are a reflection of Western lifestyle. We hunt for artisans and craftsmen who are inspired, to create “decorative art you can wear” based on their own love for the story of the West. We round it up and bring it to you.

Originally based in Santa Clarita Valley, CA we now call Albuquerque, NM home.

As husband and wife, we have more than 50 years of retail experience in apparel, accessories, home décor, and jewelry. For several years Bobbi Jean was on staff at the Autry Museum of the American West working directly with visitors and curatorial staff. During her years there she was involved in the operation of Visitor Services and the Museum Store.

In the Museum Store she encouraged visitors to try on, touch, and feel items that were similar to the ones on display. Feel the warmth of a capote (blanket coat) or weight of a mountain man buckskin coat, try on an exquisite Bohlin or Silver King buckle, try on a handsomely embroidered shirt like Gene or Roy wore, sweep on a fringed fancy dance shawl or slip on a fabulous turquoise necklaces similar to the ones in the museum's Native American collection and be transported to another time and place.

The years at the Autry Museum exposed us to the complicated, compelling, and engaging history of the West and we found that this was our life's calling. Hence, OutWest was born!

We are Supporters of Live Music Events and Western Music

Our love for Western music runs deep. OutWest began hosting live music events in 2009 in our original store location. The SCVTV Presents The OutWest Concert Series performances moved to The MAIN, 24266 Main Street, Newhall, CA 91321, (formerly The Repertory East Playhouse.) in 2014. The majority of concerts were Western Music with a dash of Bluegrass and a touch of Folk. The series was made possible by SCVTV, OutWest Shop, the International Western Music Association California Chapter, and The Magazine of Santa Clarita.

Community Partner of Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival

You may have met us "on the road" as we take our store and set up at major Western events like the Buckaroo Book Shop at the annual Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival.

Community and Non-Profit Supporters

We firmly believe in supporting museums and organizations that keep the history and stories of the West alive like the International Western Music Association (IWMA),
