I have purchased from them for years but not in the way of leather goods.

What kind of stuff?

I have bought things there and it was fine.

But I am sure the quality depends on the item.

The quality is going to depend on the brand, not the website. The site is just a selling medium.
If you'll tell us the brand of the item(s) you're considering it would be of more help.

I ordered from them a few months ago and I was pleased.

The quality is junk, but prices are cheap (I'm talking about tack, horse supplies like grooming etc are pretty much same in any store).

Sunny, I respectfully disagree that it depends on brand only. I strongly believe it also depends on what factory(?) the seller orders from. As strange as it sounds. I did buy same brands on and in Dover several years back (there were either boots or saddle pads), and they were different on touch and look when I compared side-by-side.

But the factories are run by the makers, not the site, right?

That's more of what I was getting at. The site itself doesn't manufacture the items, so it depends on the brand(I.E., factories) that it comes from.

I agree Sunny. If the brand is of a low enough quality that they are willing to ship something totally different with the same name to one place than another it is the brands issue.

If I buy an XYZ, I expect it to be an XYZ no matter where I buy it. Now, if Dover sells the XYz, and Chicks sells the XYZ then I guess it is OK that one is better.

But same model of the same items should be the same.

Very likely some manufactures have factories in several places, say US and China (India, Vietnam, etc.). Those products coming from China (India, Vietnam, etc.) can have different quality (even though they do quality control there). I think someone mentioned it about Bill Cook saddles too while back: 2 different places = 2 different quality.

Note - I do not know anything about Billy Cook saddles, just using the hame because it was posted.

But I have to assume that if they make some of their product in (using places given) China and some in the US they do not make half their XYZ model saddle in China and half of the same model in the US.

They have their cheaper models made in China and their more expensive models made in the US.

Should not always equal to is.

Folks, I'm not arguing, I'm just saying that products of the same brand from looked different than same products from Dover and IMHO worth too (even though price difference was little). I don't buy anything but cheappy stuff (dewormers, brushes, etc.) from after that.
