I took home a test saddle on consignment from the tack store ( gave my phone number, address, etc that they required ) and tried it, I liked it. I phoned the store and requested the saddle fitter ( the person who recommended and lent out the saddle to me in the first place) to come out and do a fitting. She came out, it fit well, and I said I would be willing to purchase this saddle. I told her my offer, and she sad she would phone the owners and get back to me. In the mean time I can keep the saddle, they don't need it at the store to make the purchase.
A while went by, and I phoned the store wondering what the owners said, she said the owners had not gotten back to her, and that SHE would phone ME when they did ( she made that quite clear ), so I said OK.
It's been quite a while, I haven't heard from the tack store, or gotten any information on whether my offer was accepted, or anything. I have the money saved still, but I am not sure what I should do from here.
