Haylie Shipp opened her boutique Shippwrecked in Glasgow's Old Oddfellows Hall in August of 2016, bringing her local roots and keen eye to the downtown marketplace. Shipp, who might be most recognized for her voice on KLTZ/KLAN, decided to open a store she described as, "Target with a vintage vibe."

Since opening, Shipp's vision has became more refined: "[It's] vintage farmhouse décor and western funk," said Shipp, adding, "My mom always dragged me to antique stores when I was younger, which made me want to open one. Glasgow is not the market to have a store that is completely antique, so I wanted a mix of everything."

Shippwrecked offers a little bit of everything, including clothing and home décor. Shipp also stocks Farver Farms Mix, which is a variety of locally produced foodstuffs from a farm near Scobey. The ingredients come directly from the farm, and, according to Shipp, turned out to be a huge hit during the Christmas season. "Everyone wants to eat local and support local," said Shipp.

Other local items in the store include artwork from local artist Cathryn Sugg, Opheim C4 Home Décor, and Audra Cornwell Ortega Western Photography.

Shipp and her mom, Peggy Shipp, scout local estate sales and estate auctions to obtain antique items that are either ready to go on the sales floor or provide a project for them to work on. Shipp admits she has all kinds of different items in her home from many years of antique picking.

Shipp recognizes the biggest struggle is customers actually finding the store, which is located next to the Oasis Lounge, Eatery and Casino in an unassuming, but historic property. There are plans drawn up to make the store stand out with a bigger sign, more windows, so those walking by can have a quick peek inside, and updating the whole front of the building. In the meantime, those in the know have an edge on passersby.
