About Us

Howdy, Yall! We are so glad you're here! Created by Chris and Caitlin Shipman, Common Roots is an online boutique based in Bulverde, Texas with a goal to bring local and mainstream fashion trends to women of all ages, shape and sizes...and all budgets.  Our dedication is to help every woman who buys our clothes feel empowered, and our promise is to show that dedication by giving a percentage of sales on particular items to local charities focused on encouraging and elevating others. 

Meet the Common Crew:

Chris Shipman (Lady)  

Throughout my life I have played many roles including that of, wife, mom, grandma, teacher, minister and volunteer to name a few. Each one bringing great joy and blessings beyond measure. Starting Common Roots with my daughter-in-law has been a literal dream come true. As a mom of three boys, keeping my femininity and being able to express my love for fashion was often a challenge (ball caps, sports jerseys, school colors...). Running this business along side Caitlin and now Maggie has raised this closet fashionista from the dead! I absolutely love serving our customers, building new friendships, and learning new and exciting layers of this business every single day!  My hobbies include exercise (never too excruciating), playing with my grand babies and of course...shopping!  Thanks so much CRB family.  I pray Gods richest blessings over each one of you! XOXO

First and foremost, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for being here! I never in a million years thought we would make it to our second year in business and still be so insanely passionate about this "job". Common Roots started with 7 shoeboxes full of coins and a few years of dreaming out loud with Lady. The rest is history! I am the proudest Momma to two babes. Jack is 3 and CeCe is 3 months. They are my absolute world and my one and only WHY! I am married to Justin ( Lady's middle son) and he is my biggest motivator and cheerleader. I love learning about this business, styling and eating ALL the food! I am so blessed with this life I live and I hope we can make a tiny difference in yours!

 

Maggie Guth (almost Shipman)

I am originally from Long Island, New York. 10 years ago I decided to make the big move to Texas and I am so glad I did! I am newly engaged to the sweetest man(Lady's oldest son) and we are currently in the process of building our first home together. We have two dogs, Cash and Dirk..and they are adorable! I love to travel! I am always ready for a trip somewhere new. In my free time I enjoy running, hiking, and spending time with family. I am a huge foodie and LOVE pasta(give me all the carbs). I am so thankful for this opportunity to work along my mother and sister in law. A HUGE thank you to all of you for being here and supporting us!
