    Default Shopped at Horse Country in Warrenton for the first time

    What a gem of a tack shop it is!! I am from PA and was in VA visiting family. The staff is so helpful and I just about lost myself sorting through all of the vintage hunt books. I wish we had such a place closer to home. I'm not a fox hunter, but follow the sport much like someone follows their favorite football team. I just love the history about it.

    And, I almost walked off with their Scottish Terrier. I wonder if they would have noticed.

    It's not a store, it's a destination.

    They're having a huge sale soon. Including the 2nds store up the street.

    I can't wait.

    Isn't it wonderful?? I walk around it once, then twice because I know I missed something, then around again! Great shopping!

    When I shop at tack shops, I find it best if DH is at home, at least 3 hours/3 counties away, with no access to the online banking account via his computer. :-)

    There's a second store up the street? I didn't know that. Well, I guess I'll just have to go back

    I totally fell in love with a pair of brown field boots they had, and also wanted to buy about 30 books. Do they have gift certificates? I could ask hubby for one as a Christmas present.

    Oh yes please, do come back. Marion does offer gift certificates. My mother has given up trying to make a lady out of me and now just gives me gift certificates for Horse Country.

    I got an email about the upcoming sale - here is some of the text from it.

    Hound Show weekend (this weekend):

    We, as always, look forward to Hound Show
    weekend. Horse Country's main store will
    be open as usual and, just for your visit, we’re
    putting two tents up outside with many things
    40% off*. (May 27, 28 and 29, 2010)
    Memorial Day weekend:

    Plus, we’ll open our Leftovers store
    Thursday, Friday and Saturday (May
    27, 28 and 29, 2010) from 9:30 to 5.
    Everything in that store is reduced
    50% for clearance.** It’s our 40th
    anniversary broom sweep of
    Horse Country.
    The 2nd store is up the street, it's her Leftovers/2nds store. It's a very small place but you can buy last years selection of hunt coats, canary vets, there are scarlet coats for sale, boots, stuff, more stuff, things, and whatnot.

    Oh - and if you get there early here's a sweet treat for customers:

    So get up early and visit us before the heavy duty sightseeing begins. We’ll have coffee
    and fresh croissants ready every morning at 9:00 (and other special treats from the two
    new bakeries in town) and a special gift (with purchase) tee shirt designed just for you.
    So, are we all going to meet for coffee and then go shopping?

    The Scotties are Aga and Bunsen. For some reason, when I drive to Horse Country I almost always drive one of my old English cars. It just feels right. Rather like going into the store and having Aga trot up for a scratch and a cuddle. The place wouldn't feel right without them.
