    Default Rolex SHOPPING!

    What Vendors do you plan on hitting this year?

    Last year there was an enormous equestrian clearance booth full of clothing from the UK, super fantastic deals on very nice show gear, winter coats, and breeches. I can't remember the name but I hope to see them there this year.

    If the Kan-teq vest folks are there, I might visit them.

    I was completely underwhelmed by the shopping last year, although I always hit Animals to Wear and am hoping Signature Leather will be back
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    I'm hoping to order some La Mundials this year and then see what bargains I can find that I don't really need.

    I think the OPs booth is the place where I got my new barn coat. Original price per label was $200 (Anky brand), but I got it for $25.

    I hope that you have better luck with La Mundial getting your measurements correct, than I have had. Let's just say that the third time was not the charm.

    I got an email from Kanteq, and she is going to be there. I msgd her back and asked where exactly (will she have her own booth, or sharing with someone else?), but haven't heard anything.

    Auburn, I'm sorry about your boots. I'm had mine for almost 10 years, and love them!

    I'm on the hunt for a new vest this year - so any vendors that will help measure me! I am still in mourning that Elizabeth G is no longer there. I have breeches that are 15 years old that I still wear.

    Me too! I just wore my beige Elizabeth G's last weekend. I only wear those for shows and they're still like brand new!

    Oh, I forgot all about Elizabeth G. I have a couple of great fitting breaches that I bought 10+ years ago for a great price from her tent at Rolex. Bummer.

    Auburn, a friend of mine ordered her La Mundials at Rolex several years ago, her wait time was longer than expected but were perfect when they arrived. I've seen a few others on here complain about theirs but so many others with positive....I'm hoping the exception are the problem orders and mine goes smoothly. Sorry for your frustration!

    I bought a pair of Elizabeth Gs for my daughter, off of ebay for less than 50 bucks, full deer skin seats, and the lady told me that she had schooled dressage all over Europe in them! They're blue, not show breeches. They look like new and DD says they are so comfortable, like wearing your own skin.

    Here they are! http://s272.photobucket.com/user/JMA...tml?sort=6&o=0

    Back to Rolex shopping, it's a pilgrimage - enjoy

    My friend Claire at Clever with Leather has some really innovative belts this year (two buckles on each hip so that you can make them fit low rise pants/ breeches really well). That's one thing on my list

    I like the booth the OP is talking about too. Last year I got ANKY raincoats for both of my kids and a Kyra K coat for me that fits me great - I am very petite and its a child XL.... all the kids jackets were only $5. OMG And I got a show shirt for dressage for schooling shows and its been wonderful to wear - dressy but still casual for $2. But I also like to go to that tack sale booth that has all sorts of silly kiddy stuff - like rhinestone browbands, silly flymasks and funky colored silly halters. I have a few ponies in my barn that need some new cutie pie garb! OH and the horse chocolate booth. And the free avacodo samples.... and I always buy a few OTTB Tshirts to wear to ride in.

    Anyone know the name of this Equestrian Clearance booth? Definitely want to hit it up while I am up there Thursday or Saturday!

    I did not see the clearance booth. Am I going crazy?
