- A Little History of AA Callister
- In 1952, Arthur A. Callister began trading wool with his father in a little shop on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, Utah. Noticing how many customers were in need of quality tack to outfit themselves and their horses, AA Callister's Western Wear and Tack was born! Over 50 years and many satisfied customers we are still a family owned tack shop still located on the original site. We are proud to represent the traditions and lifestyles that made the West famous. We are also proud to feature some of the finest tack, clothing, and equipment made. Come live part of the American West today!

The Magic of Cowboy Parties
All children love to dress up. One of the most popular children’s costumes is the cowboy costume. Children cannot get enough of the western wear attire that comes with dressing up. They love wearing cowboy hats and cowboy boots and pretending to be someone that they have grown up knowing and loving ever since they were little.
There is something magical that happens when a child puts on a cowboy hat. It is like a transformation actually happens. The child is brought in to a fun world of imagination.
When you have a party with a cowboy theme all the rest of the guests behave the same way too. They proudly display their western wear gear. Western parties are popular for boys and are becoming even more popular for girls as well.
There are plenty of designs and styles available for kid western dress up parties. There are a variety of colors that are available to choose from. You can find some that are catered towards bright parties, and others that are more antique.
Costumes also come in different quality levels. Some costumes are cloth or plastic designs. Others are intricate and come with embroidery and embellishments.
If you are hosting a party with both girls and boys be sure to have fun with colors. You can usually find western gear that come in different shades of pinks, blues, greens, etc. Having different colors can be good for co-gender parties.
Cowboy hats can also be a great option if you are having an outdoor party. They are able to protect the kids really well from the harmful rays of the sun. No parent can complain about that.
Kids love dressing up. Dressing up as cowgirls and cowboys has always been a favorite for children. The western movement will always be a classic choice.
