We accept gently used quality saddles, leather tack items, and brand name apparel/accessories for our consignment program. To be considered for our consignment program items must be clean, safe, have no major defects or broken parts, and be complete and usable. You must also complete our Consignment Form & Contract.
Our consignment contract runs for 90 days on items that meet our criteria for the program. If your item sells we offer a couple payment options, check, Paypal or store credit. Our consignment fee is 30% of the selling price if your item sells. If you choose store credit for your payment we reduce the fee to 20%. No fee is charged if your item does not sell unless you remove the item before the expiration date of the contract, then a 10% listing fee is charged (max $50). All consignment items are listed in our website consignment area (new!) and may also be advertised on our social media platforms.

Cleaning Service: The cleaner your saddle is, the faster we can sell it, and a good cleaning will often increase the value of your saddle! We offer cleaning service on leather saddles that includes:
- A full deep cleaning
- Metal polishing
- Dye where necessary
Saddle Cleaning starts at $50. Extensive silver and tooling is an additional charge. If we find repairs are necessary we will call you for approval. Repair costs are materials plus labor. If your saddle is very dirty or the leather is stiff and dry, Diamond Royal Tack reserves the right to refuse your saddle for consignment unless cleaned.
Pricing: We leave the pricing decision to the Consignor. Some people prefer to take less, and have a saddle sell quickly, while others prefer a possible longer wait, to try to get as much as possible. We recommend you price according to market value for brand but realize some may be more difficult to find information on than others. If you would like advice call and ask for Amanda or Molly and we would be happy to help!
Safety checks: Please note that Diamond Royal Tack checks every item before accepting them into our consignment program. Saddles and tack are checked for broken/twisted trees, thinning or cracked billets, loose stitching, broken or missing hardware and other possible defects that would make the item unsafe. In the event that your item has a problem that can be fixed to make it usable again, we will call you to find out if you would like to have it repaired. If the item is unsafe and cannot be repaired, it will be returned to you (at your expense if shipped). You are welcome to call or email to receive a repair quote prior to sending your item in for consignment.
