Today I’m at the only place in Rutherford County where you AND your horse can stay in the hotel — Tammy Martell’s Bed & Barn Farms located at 661 Big Island Rd, Rutherfordton NC. For the locals, that’s in the Shiloh community near the old Shiloh elementary school (for the REAL old timers ; ).
She also has Rutherford County’s only tack, antique and merchandise store called TAMS. Today she’s having a huge sale with prices slashed 10-70%. Even better than the prices are the cool artisans on site demonstrating their craft!
Outside you can watch Delmer Miller forge his wares from actual horseshoes. The Laughing Elf soap is here selling their handcrafted all-organic soap. You’ll find a tent with McCauley’s Equine feed for sale. Mill on Wheels will also be on-site demonstrating cutting logs in lumber.
Step inside the store to see the articulate scroll-saw works of Cathy Skipper and watch Susan Brooks make her clay silver and bronze equestrian themed jewelry.
TAMS has a vast variety of equestrian boots and clothing including brands like Horseware Ireland, Horze, Four Horses and her latest addition – Uvex helmets and sunglasses. She carries both new and consignment tack including saddles, bits, bridles and more.
Come out anytime today before 5 pm. Drop your name in the bag for a chance win door prizes every hour on the hour!
