GIDDY UP GLAMOUR began as a collaboration of five designers having some fun with beads on the weekends, and now operates on a daily basis with seven full time employees and five part-time employees, allowing us to create pieces for every age and taste. We operated online only and weekend shows for four years. After many requests, we opened our first boutique in our hometown, Huntsville, Texas in May, 2012. Always ready for a new challenge, we began searching around Texas this past January for an additional location. After visiting several towns, we found the right fit in the historically famous Stockyard District of Fort Worth. We look forward to serving this new area of Texas as we search for addtional sites as well.
We are your premier source for gemstone and crystal jewelry custom, hand strung pieces that add a touch of glamour to all generations. In addition we offer the latest in trends of apparel and accessories for all ages. From ‘tweens and teens to queens of all ages and glamour levels we have the right design for you at the right price. If you don’t see what you have in mind, let us custom design a piece for you to perfectly match your newest or dearest outfit. Whether you need to glamorize show apparel or an evening gown, the glamour designers at Giddy Up Glamour can find the right look for you.
Welcome to our website. I am NANCY CHRISTIAN, owner of GIDDY UP GLAMOUR. I live in my hometown, Huntsville, Texas with husband, Gary, and youngest daughter, Abby plus a multitude of show animals and registered Daschund puppies. I am a proud third generation Walker County resident and a third generation Huntsville High School graduate. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BBA in Accounting and still service tax clients and some monthly accounts in addition to the daily operation of GIDDY UP GLAMOUR. I was raised with a livestock background with influences from 4-H and FFA. We in turn raised our girls the same way. Our customer base began with our livestock friends and has grown to a nationwide base of over 57,000 fans plus we expand into other countries as far as Russia, Australia, Thailand, United Kingdom, Japan and the list goes on and on. We are continually amazed at the new places we ship to and are thankful each day for the blessings that are bestowed upon us.
MALLORY PARRISH is our middle daughter. Mallory has loved fashion since she was a toddler and has an eye for trends before they are trends. She really lends a great deal to the design team by keeping us in "on the edge" designs. Mallory, Texas A&M '10,returned full time to GIDDY UP GLAMOUR as General Manager, designer, buyer and personal shopper for many of our clients.
ABBY CHRISTIAN is our youngest daughter. Abby is a junior at Huntsville High school. Abby loves showing livestock whether it is goats, lambs, or steers and occasionally a pig or two. A very active member and Junior Director of the Texas Junior Livestock Association, Abby likes to enter the show ring fully glamorized. She has grown into a very competitive showman, following in her older sister's steps. In her spare time we grab her up to help out in the designing of items.
GARY CHRISTIAN is in charge of shipping. Gary is a native of Mauriceville, Texas but relocated to Huntsville in 1970 to attend Sam Houston State University and stayed. He coached in Madisonville public schools before starting a career teaching in the Windham School District. A recent retiree from 30 years of teaching, he now spends his days packaging GIDDY UP GLAMOUR and shipping Glamour throughout the world!
KATIE PARRISH is our oldest daughter. Katie is a member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2008 where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Agri-Business. She graduated in May 2010 with her MAB in Ag Business and after a small stay with GUG she now has relocated to Lubbock, Texas and works for Dow Agriscience. We don’t get her home as much as we like to work in the GIDDY UP GLAMOUR workshop but we count on her to keep an eye out for new trends. She has a keen eye when it comes to combining colors and stones.
