When she moved from Texas to her husband Blake Shelton’s Oklahoma hometown two years ago, Miranda Lambert needed a new hobby.

“Blake is constantly out in the woods or in his lodge” she says with a laugh. “I wanted some-thing to spend my time and energy on.”

A fan of garage sales and arts and crafts, Lambert, 29, renovated and opened up the Pink Pistol on Main Street last November, selling clothes, boots, gifts and homemade drinks from a restored 1949 soda fountain.

Surrounded by mementos like her father’s college locker and a thrift store piano she painted pink, Lambert beams, “This store is part of my personality, there are touches of me everywhere” she says. “It makes me feel at home.”
