Thanks! I may come out there between X-mas and NY (given we won't have snow!
MIE, the only big consignment store around here (2nd one we had was closed in Jan and from what I know it was better) sells lots of junk for very high (saddles included). The reason I believe is that commission is 50% on cloth and boots, so people put terribly high price on 2nd hand trying to get money. Its pretty ridiculous as some boots there have there already worn out to holes, still they want $$. I think buying off-forum (or even on craigslist (the local one)) should be much better price-wise.
