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 worn many hats including that of, wife, mom, grandma (Lady), teacher, minister and volunteer. Each one bringing great joy and blessings beyond measure. Starting Common Roots with my daughters-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 Maggie has raised this closet fashionista from the dead! I love serving our customers, building new friendships (my absolute favorite part), and learning new and exciting layers of this business every single day!  Thank you so much CRB family for supporting us these past few years and getting us to where we are today. Working with our local and online communities through this business is one of the great honors of my life. I pray Gods richest blessings over each one of you!


Caitlin Shipman

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 FIFTH 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 5 and CeCe is 3. 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 Shipman 

I am originally from Long Island, New York. 12 years ago I decided to make the big move to Texas and I am so glad I did! I am married to the sweetest man(Lady's oldest son) & we are hoping to start our family soon! l I LOVE food, especially pasta(give me all the carbs)! Having this business is hard work but I am so blessed to be doing something I love & with my Mother & Sister-in-law. Common Roots has bought me so much joy and new friendships along the way! A HUGE thank you to all of you for being here and supporting us these past few years!
