Tell me your tack swap tales!

Tell me your tack swap tales!

I’m kicking around the idea of organizing a tack swap/sale this winter, and I need your help! I’ve never hosted such a thing, but I think it would be a fun activity for the local community to see each other outside of competition season. And, of course, to clean out tack trunks or fill them with new-to-you stuff!

I’d love to have everyone who wants to sell something have their own little area instead of trying to tag things and keep track of them on someone else’s behalf. It’d also be great to make it a big, festive event with lots of people, lots of stuff, and food!

Have you ever organized or participated in a tack swap/sale? How did you get the word out? Was it free? What kind of venue hosted it? How was it set up? Any horror stories?

If you’ve been to a tack swap to swap/sell stuff, how did you stay organized? What did you like about the sale? What didn’t you like?
