A friend of mine has fallen on hard times, she has never been a "horse person" but both of her parents were the old time cowboy/cowgirl types, think Roy Rogers & Dale Evans. Anyhow she has a large amount of antique and vintage tack that she really needs to sell, but she doesn't know the value of any of it. Does anyone here have any suggestions on where we could get a reliable appraisal, or a good place to try selling it to get a good price?
To give you an idea of what she has:
40"s(?) CK Shapley parade saddle totally silvered out w/headstall and breast collar
A 50's Hiesner that was originally sold by sears and roebuck. I've ridden one once and they are crazy comfortable for both horse and rider.
Various bits and spurs dating from the 60's back to possibly civil war era.
