Have you ever wondered how HalfPint got its name?
One of the most common questions we get is: Why the name ‘HalfPint’?

If you grew up in the 70’s and early 80’s, you’ll recall the popular American Western Drama TV series ‘Little House on the Prairie’ that was set in the late 1800’s. The show centers around Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was the second of five children in the family. Laura was the tomboy of the Ingalls daughters, and she preferred fishing and playing baseball over the other more traditional ladylike activities of the time. You could often find her tagging along with her beloved Pa and getting into mischief on her daily adventures. Being small and tough, her Pa affectionately referred to Laura as HalfPint. The real life Laura Ingalls Wilder went on to become a writer and chronicled her pioneer life in the Little House book series.

We greatly admire the spirit of Laura Ingalls Wilder and that spirit most definitely embodies our company culture. HalfPint is a female owned business and our team is comprised of all women. We like to think of ourselves as all having a little bit of the moxie of Laura Ingalls Wilder. You’ll also notice this theme reflects into our shop aesthetic. The decor has a pioneer feel to it, with lots of old distressed vintage/antique wood fixtures, as well as our merchandise having a certain Western flair (vintage cowboy boots being one of the many leather products we sell!). We hope you enjoy all the thoughtful details that go into making HalfPint the wonderful shop you know and love!

“The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies”- Laura Ingalls Wilder
