It is in the best interest of consignors, customers and The Tack Collector for items to be reasonably priced. Pricing is determined by several factors; the consignor, condition, brand and the relative, comparable prices in the online and local tack shop community. In our day-to-day lives, whether grocery, clothing or vehicle shopping, you will also find comparable products at vastly different prices. Whether it is saddles, stirrups, bridles, clothing, etc., the brand name plays a significant part in determining both the new (and then used) sale price. Some examples; Antares products are priced higher than Collegiatte, a Rambo blanket is more than a Schneider's, Ariat is more than Dublin, Stubben is more than Connemara,etc.
