Waterwheel Gifts and Books was started in 1981, providing quality gifts to the residents of Dubois, Wyoming- a true cowboy town just outside Yellowstone National Park. People from all over the world would stop in year after year to see the amazing products. In 2019, Stephanie Arrache and her husband Ryan Landmann purchased the store, promising to keep the original charm but to breathe a new life into it. They kept the lines of products everyone had come to know and love but also brought in some new and exciting brands, making it an eclectic mix of western and kitsch. Plus, they expanded the book area, making it a true bookstore and brought in pocketknives, more gifts for men and cigars.
We are a space where customers become friends and friends become family (but the kind of family you actually like...not the creepy uncle who you dread seeing at family gatherings).
