    If I had more money I'd seriously fly out there for this. When horseloverz liquidated Copper Creek tack shop by my I got a TON of stuff... some of it 90% off retail. it was crazy. GO IF YOU CAN!

    I went to the Horseloverz liquitation in Branchville NJ and it was SO NOT WORTH THE DRIVE. I suggest you go if you like what Libertyville usually sells, that you can score for a good deal-- but the Horseloverz stuff is mostly a bunch of junk and crippity ****. The Copper Creek liquidation rocked because what Copper Creek sold was good stuff, not cuz of the junk tentsale stuff HL brought along. IIRC Libertyville was a lot of sort of odd brand names and non-mainstream stuff, so I'd only get excited if you regularly like to show with Libertyville stocked.

    I've been in that store a few times......Totally not worth it!! They have a lot of old and out of style clothing, grooming and health products that have sat on the shelves for years. Really crappy tack from unknown makers. The only part i liked was the used saddle room. Rows and rows of saddles :)

    BTW: I have never seen anything pessoa or vespucci in there
