I have consigned a saddle with Snooty Fox (yes, it sold!) and Nan was GREAT to do business with! I highly recommend her shop. She is very helpful, and if you are looking for something in particular they are always friendly people to call in my experience.
Near where I live now, there's Old Frontier in Grovetown, GA (I don't think they have a website but they're like two doors down from the Boots, Bridles, and Britches in Grovetown. [Unfortunately, BB&B doesn't have consignment]
they have online consignment stuff, and they have a GREAT little shop!! also if you call them, Lynn (owner) or Nicole (employee) will probably tell you what they have beyond what's on their website!! They are FABULOUS!!
When I moved to California I was told about the sticker shock. Then I found http://www.sandiegosaddlery.net/
Lovely brick and mortar shop that does have some online and will happily ship it to you. Lovely ladies who are versed in both western and english disciplines. Bonus they always always have show shirts and breeches on show weekend when the big stores don't.

When I was in GA, I visited the Snooty Fox that lucasb recommends. Cute shop. It took me a while to find it, though, if I remember!
I'm pretty sure the same thing happened to me looking for this place. We finally found it & it wasn't open. so I've been there but I haven't been there.
I second Middleburg Tack. My new fave is in Aberdeen, NC between Southern Pines proper and the horse park...1 block off Hwy 1 so it's very easy to find. Barn Door Consignments...it's a little shop but b/c of being in horse country, they get some of the best stuff. They have top notch stuff and you'll find driving, racing, h/j, dressage, eventing, and western stuff alongside books, gifty stuff, etc. The day I was in there last week a guy came to consign some Texas Longhorn horns. They hung 'em on the wall next to some paintings done by a horse. Just fun! I got a ton of stuff for next to nothing. And the owners/staff are great.
Another vote for The Snooty Fox! Tues - Sat, 10AM-6PM, located in the Alpharetta Business Center. Coming south/west on Hwy 9, it is the first right (0.1 miles) you can make after Wills Rd, across from Sky Carwash (next to the Ferrari dealership, which is on the corner of Wills Rd and Hwy 9). I miss it!!!
