It’s not exactly heaven, but this is pretty darn close. Don’t you hate how every tack or western-clothing store is over-priced or full of cheap-made products? I found a hole-in-the-wall store in Benton, Arkansas that has tack literally from wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling. You kind of have to dig through everything, but there are a few bargains to be found. I could have spent all day long in this store, but we’ll just have to make multiple trips.
|Sue’s Tack. This is what you see just inside the door, only on my trip, I could not see those walls.|
|Found a good saddle pad and blanket. Yep, they even have Oklahoma State Orange!|
|Even found one that fit just right in the kitchen…|
|And I found a decent saddle to use as a spare, or at least until I find the one I am really looking for. Needs some cleaning, but it’ll work.|
We’ll have to see what I find on some follow-up trips.
Do you have a favorite tack store or have you ever had to dig through a mess just to find an unexpected treasure?
