Recently discovered a new shop in VA - has been open a while but I only heard about it from a freind who visited recently. "Changing Reins" at 6 Rail St. in Ashland Va, near Doswell and just off I-95 at the Ashland exit (take Rt. 54 west to Rail, just over the rail road tracks).
Lots of horsey gifts as well as used blankets, tack, hunt clothes, saddles, reins, stable equipment....very impressed with how much they had put in the shop and well worth a visit.
It just happened that I still had the ad that I pulled out of a magazine. It doesn't list a phone #, but the web site is www.changingreinsinc.com. I was just recently there. They had a fair amount of hunt jackets,vests. I was talking to the owner's husband while waiting for a friend to meet me there. As well as consignment stuff, they also seem to buy new stuff from other places( I guess overstocks etc). They had quite a few saddles, lots of nice gifts(jewelry, bags, dishes). Definitely nicer than what I thought a consignment tack shop would be.
Another really neat "boutique" type shop is The Galloping Grape in Warrenton at 65 E. Franklin Street next to the old Depot Restaurant (now Claire's and a great place to have lunch or dinner!). The Grape has a great selection of consigned saddles, etc. as well as a really neat wine room and lots of horsey gifts. Definately one of my fav places to browse through and look for goodies!
