WSHJA Benefit Tack Consignment Sale Is Back For 2013!

by WSHJA Member Services February 21, 2013 in Announcements, Shows

Whether you have owned a horse for 5 weeks or 5 years, you probably have several items of tack that you bought and just haven’t used. This is your opportunity to find those items a new home, free up some cash and buy tack you can use! Come and shop for great bargains as we build up the inventory. We are at the shows, so bring your horse over and try it on before you buy!

Bring your bridles, bits, girths, martingales, blankets, halters, leather goods, equipment, etc. to the show and drop them off (If you have a single item over 50 lbs, please check first via email.) We are excluding saddles and clothes for the sale this year. When you come to the show, be sure to stop by and check out the inventory. The WSHJA Tack Sale is “credit card only” for purchases.

The WSHJA Tack Sale booth will be staffed at all the WSHJA shows and you can drop off items to be sold and browse the items available. A consignment fee is paid to WSHJA based on how much you consign to be sold: if you consign over $500 in value, you pay 25% to WSHJA, if you consign $500 or less, you pay 35% to WSHJA. There is a one time admin fee of $50 to cover a share of the expenses: storage, transport, software, filing taxes, etc. You will receive a check for your items once all of them are sold or by 10/30/13, whichever is first. All unsold items will be donated to a charity unless you specify that you will pick the item up at October Classic (or by appt in Woodinville).
