Cowboy Trader - the guy and the Road Trip
I have a great friend whom I call my "saddle guy". He collects and sells antique saddles, spurs and any other fabulous cowboy thing you have ever imagined. He is just a guy with a phone number and a basement full of AMAZING things. He has no website for me to link you to - or even an email address!! Sooo, let me know if you are looking for an antique saddle (these are the real deal, folks - many of his saddles, spurs and chaps are museum-quality!!) and I can hook you up
I tell you about my "saddle guy" because when I met him this week (I was picking up a vintage spur stand and some spurs for a client) he told me about an event happening this weekend - The Cowboy Trade Day
in Catoosa, Oklahoma
On the third Saturday of September every year there is an event that looks to be well worth the road trip. Called The Cowboy Trade Day
, it is an a good old fashioned Swap Meet
that features "ranch cowboy trappings, antique spurs, old west guns, cowboy crafts, western decor, Navajo silver jewelry and a whole lot more. Cowboy music too! Catoosa, Oklahoma looks to be the place to be on the 3rd Saturday of September for the biggest annual all-cowboy stuff & western stuff swap meet in the country." Too late for me this year but let me know how it goes (and say hello to my "saddle guy").
