Over the course of never-mind-how-many-years in the Thoroughbred world we have managed to accumulate a lot of racing related items. Or perhaps I should say I have accumulated a lot of items, being something of an inveterate collector of anything to do with Thoroughbred racing.
But there comes a time when one realizes they simply have to reconsider their priorities and I'm not about to simply throw things out to make some space. So the logical thing to do is to put items up for sale--they get a good home and we make a few dollars.
Ebay was out of the question, we have such a variety of items and paying for numerous ads only to be greeted by 'No Bid' (I see a lot of that on Ebay) didn't make sense.
Setting prices on items is a challenge, it seems most of the online collecting interest is on Derby glasses (yes, we have some) and for awhile bobblehead dolls seemed in vogue. Beyond that there's no real way to make comparisons, so the prices I came up with are roughly based on what I feel represents a realistic value of the item. All prices include shipping costs.
I am launching this with just a few items and will add items perodically, so check back often. Once an item is purchased it will disappear from the site.
How To Purchase: Send an email to email@example.com indicating the item. If the item is still available we will send you an invoice through PayPal (you don't need a PayPal account to pay, major credit cards are fine). Once payment is received the merchandise will be sent on its merry way.
