We're excited to announce that Triple Mountain will be at Fryeburg Fair in Fryeburg, Maine from Sept 29 - Oct 6, 2019. We will be the first Breyer dealer at the fair in over twenty years!

As a kid, my family went to the fair every year. I loved walking through the horse barns and watching people groom their gorgeous draft horses for the show. One of my favorite parts, though, was hunting for the mobile tack shop that was usually parked near the barns, because they kept a handful of Breyer models on a shelf near the back, and I got to pick one to buy each year. I used to think, "Someday I want to do this!"
This year, that dream comes true! The folks with the tack shop retired over twenty years ago, and there hasn't been a model horse to be found there since. I want to bring that magic and excitement back to the fair for all the horse lovers of New England!
The folks in charge of choosing vendors are almost as excited to have us as we are to be going. They gave us a primo location: If you come in the Main Gate, we're just ahead to your left in The Expo Center building. As a matter of fact, we're right next to the door inside the Expo Center, so you may be able to see Breyer boxes when you come through the gate! I'll be there every day from 9am to 9pm. As a bonus, on Friday and Saturday, I'll be joined by our Breyer rep Jan, and together we can answer your Breyer questions.

We'll have a full selection of Breyer Traditionals, plus Classics, Stablemate sets, riders and accessories, and blind bags while they last. The first 100 people to spend at least $50 in our booth will receive a special Breyer goodie bag along with their purchase.
Since we'll be at the fair all week, online orders placed from September 26 - October 8th will not ship until we get home. We will begin shipping orders on or around October 9th and get caught up as soon as we can so we can get back to shipping within 24 hours like usual.
Also, please note that our Hiram store will be closed on Sunday Sept 29th and October 6th, since we'll be at the fair. The fair is only 20 minutes from us, though, so come on up!
The fair is located at 1154 Main St., Fryeburg, Maine. Tickets to the fair are $12 per day or $65 for a week pass. Children under 12 are free, and seniors 65+ get in free on Tuesday. Parking is $5 or $10 (depending on the lot) or you can park at many private homes for a small fee. More info and online ticket purchases at: https://www.fryeburgfair.org/
