I think Neiman-Marcus had expensive minis in their catalog some years ago, too - I think it was around the holidays and I was working in an ad agency in NYC and we got their catalog in the office, for fun. That was back in the day when minis could get in "People" magazine for running amuck in the house and jumping over a coffee table!Tony said:To clarify your misconception, they are NOT selling MINIS, they are selling A MINI, and I understand that it sold according to another post.
In the fifties Sears or Montgomery Ward sold Shetland Ponies and different breeds of dogs and various other animals and birds, though, fyi.
I think buy a horse of any kind is a lot like a barbie doll if you put it like that. You buy the horse then it needs a halter & a show halter & then a driving harness & maybe a friend or two & a trailer & a cart etc etc etc. Gets a little crazy sometimes.Mercysmom said:Maybe the monogrammed tack jacked the price up?!Â Maybe we all need to sell custom monogrammed tack and accessories with our minis a la the success of Barbie dolls and their accessories (as in the doll is the first thing you buy but then she needs outfits, friends, fancy housing and a car... oh yeah, I forgot about Ken) so we can command high prices like that (sarcasm).Â Unbelieveable.
