Saturday was the 3rd annual tack sale at a local facility a few miles away (same place I attended the obstacle clinic a few weeks ago). It's always fun to get together with the local equestrian community, and I have scored some killer deals there! This year, I also got my own table to try to unload some of my extra stuff. I have been relentlessly culling breeches, and I had a plethora of other stuff I just never used.
|My table lol|
My goal is always to break even - if I sell anything I generally immediately use that money to buy something else, but I was aiming to not be in the hole at the end of it.... I..... Failed miserably 🤣 but in fairness, I got some ridiculously great deals and I did need almost all of the things I bought. Almost 🙈
|I've been needing a few more dressage girths in various shapes and sizes, so I lucked out and picked up three very reasonably! (I paid $5 combined for the two on the left lol)|
|Okay so I didn't really *need* these but the eggbutt is a Lorenzini and I've been casually keeping an eye out for one of these old school b-ring bauchers and I got a deal by purchasing together so yolo lol.|
|BNWT Kerrits coat - $20 🥳|
|Roeckl gloves (yay for buying used so I don't have to support a shitty company lol), F bomb socks (have you ever seen anything more perfect for me), and a navy ES bonnet, since I'm gradually incorporating more... Classic color schemes into my life 🤣|
|Okay so we all know I have a saddle pad problem but I paid $25 total for this cream Fenwick titanium pad and a BOT/Thinline combo. How could I NOT buy these?|
|Subtly sparkly and black? Yes please!|
|Does it actually count as more conservative if it's glitter? 🤣 I am still SO BITTER that ME refuses to make these in fun colors like teal. Sob.|
|Alright this was completely and utterly unnecessary but as I'm looking down the road at showing Emmy next year, how frickin' good will this look on her?!|
|Yeah okay this is into deeply unnecessary territory but I stopped caring at this point 🤣|
|Another BNWT Kerrits coat for $20. I can never have too many coats!|
Not pictured (because they aren't as fun lol), some small stable supplies like a bot knife, sweat scrapers, alushield, clipper lubricant, fly spray, etc that someone didn't want to pack up so they just unloaded on me. A fleece jacket from the SRS (🥰), a saddle pad rack identical to the two I already have so I can hang more pads (I have a problem), an insulated bucket holder that matches my existing ones so now all of my occupied stalls have one, and two more, and two more hay feeders in the style I like - I'm not currently using mine (for a variety of reasons) but I do still like them and I believe the company has gone out of business so when I saw these at the sale cheap, I snapped them up.
Before the sale, a friend let me browse the clothes she had available and I made out like a bandit with several nice riding vests. She also sent me home with two flexible filly grazing muzzles and some shooflys, which will definitely get lots of use next summer!
|And I still need to pay her for Emmy's "new" bridle, a lovely Schockemole 🤩|
Overall a productive, but expensive, day 🤣 I ended up donating half the athletic polos and lower end breeches to a lesson program, so I just have a handful of nicer ones still to sell. Maybe if I get that done, I will actually break even on the day haha.
