    Default Best Place to sell my saddle....it needs to go!

    I know there have been many postings on selling saddles. I have failed w/ ebay and tack trader. I have a nice jumping saddle that needs to go soon. I have ordered a new Wexford, so funds are needed. Who really moves saddles fast w/o a huge commission. I really hate the thought of paying up to 30% of my sale. Please speak up! I would rather someone else handle "tire kickers" Thanks for any help!

    I just saw an ad in a local (NW) horse magazine for some big outdoors/tack store in Oregon that is selling used saddles with NO consignment fee. I know nothing about the place and I don't even remember what it was called, but an internet search might turn something up! You could probably mail them your saddle cheaper than selling it on consignment somewhere else.

    Good luck!

    sorry you had no luck on ebay!
    To me it is really the most efficient.

    But try my friend Patricia at fineusedsaddles.com
    She does consignment and she is great!

    Funny you should mention Patricia, I've had several email chats w/ her! I am leaning towards sending this saddle to her because she's sold 2 of my friends saddles! Love how she does her website. I've always heard she can really make a sale happen.

    If anyone can sell it, Patricia can!

    I actually looked at the site the other day while saddle-dreaming.

    Does she only take high end saddles for resale?
