I looked at and tried on a ton of stuff, which was nice. Normally I need to order things online, so it was a treat to be able to check out things in person. A lot of things that were on my wish list didn't end up making the cut once I saw them in person. Either I was disappointed with the quality, or the fit, or couldn't bring myself to spend the cash, even at significant savings. Here's the list of things that actually made it home with me, with a few being impulse buys, rather than my carefully planned shopping list:
(Bear with me, it's a long list, but it's all pictures and few words :)
|Asmar bamboo tees x2 (pink and navy)|
|BR event pad in black and grey|
|Mine came with '666' pre installed?|
|Asmar City jacket. I bought a black one earlier in the fall for riding, but the pink was calling my name for daily use in our dark rainy winters. In my defense, it was the last one and marked down to $75|
|Can never have too many.|
|Cheap gloves. Again, can never have too many|
|Asmar polka dot pony sunshirt. This feels too heavy to be a sunshirt, but it's cute and is super flattering on.|
|Under Armour shirt. The most comfortable thing ever.|
|BR Halter. Like but don't love because it says 'Horses 4 ever' or something like that all over it. But it was in the 9$ clearance bin and B needed a new barn halter! She's confident enough in her pony tude to advertise her love of horses too :)|
The best part about this entire shopping spree was that I spent less than $300 all in, including lunch!
We also bought a heap of stuff for the house, so G was also happy with our day. We unanimously voted to make this an annual event. I'm in! Particularly as I didn't buy a lot of things I actually *needed* like, a saddle...a dressage bridle, a new girth...oh well, there's always next time.
