My Story

The Lone Star Trading Co. is based in Melbourne, Australia but the idea blossomed right in the heart of Texas!

For the past few years, my Pitmaster husband Kit and I have worked on building up our American Barbecue restaurant, called Houston's Barbecue (that's our surname, fitting right!). During that time, we visited Texas, fell in love with its unforgettable charm and when we got back home, we went on to establish ourselves as a bona-fide Texan Barbecue Couple…right here in Australia!

Even though we live on the outskirts of a large Australian city, Texas just stole my heart, and wouldn't let go. So here I am, an urban cowgirl filled with a wild Texan spirit and blended with an authentic Aussie gal attitude. What was I going to do with all that?

I decided to open Lone Star Trading Co and explore my long-time love of western fashion. So far, it's been a crazy, fun ride and I've loved the experience of carefully curating an exciting and trendy collection of Wild West inspired women’s clothing and accessories. From graphic tees serving up a lil’ country sass and stunning fashion Turquoise accessories to complete any outfit right through to gorgeous sun-kissed dresses, guaranteed to make you smile. 

So let’s be friends y’all!! Please feel free to jump on our socials and stay in touch.

Thank you so much for shopping small and keeping this gal’s dream alive.
