Where does everyone advertise their used tack?

I have used Kijiji (Craig's list equivalent here in Canada), Horse Clicks and the local tack shop board, but no bites...?

Might want to take out the details of the item you want, as it would be considered advertising and that's not allowed in this forum, but you can pay to advertise on the classifieds forum.

Also, try Bits&Barter forums, The Outside Course forums, I've had GREAT success with the Classified section of HorseGroomingSupplies.com forums.

And the easiest way - find a local equestrian group on FB and join, then post. All of these are free!

I love eBay. Ice always sold for the price I wanted within 3 weeks.

How do you know the cost to ship? and who did you use to ship?

Usually you estimate how much it will take to ship + materials cost... If it's outside of the US, you invoice them after you figure out the international shipping costs.

Costs anywhere from 50-80 buckaroos to send out a saddle, at least from the experiences I've had.

Depends on who's cheaper, USPS or UPS.

I support Usps. Calculating costs is easy with the carrier websites. I've shipped 3 saddles and before insurance it runs around $35 materials and all.
For lighter items I usually charge $15
