The discussion of various ticket types and their access to different collections of models brings up the question “what special models can I buy at BreyerFest?” It’s true, BreyerFest has a LOT of special product but it is broken down into a four simple different “collections” or categories. The regular line product that is always available on BreyerHorses.com will also be available for purchase and these items can be added to your cart at any time.
What exclusive models are available for sale at BreyerFest?
Store Specials are a collection of limited editions that would have normally been available to all ticket holders (3-Day and Single-Day) in the Breyer Store. These 2020 models, Benelli, Cheesecake, and WH Topgun, will have inventory released several times throughout the weekend. As we would have onsite, models will be made available each morning, but this year we are also releasing inventory throughout each day of the weekend to accommodate different time zones.
Throughout the Breyer Store onsite you would have found some Warehouse Finds (aka the NPOD), these are models we have collected throughout the year from our warehouse and Archive Room. They are generally samples or found inventory of models no longer in production. Some are sold in bubble wrap and others are pristine in packaging. For 2020, we are offering these items as Grab Bags with inventory to be released periodically throughout the weekend. Boxes will be curated to various price points, $50, $75, $100, $150, etc. Some may have 1 or 2 models, others may have 4, but collectively they will meet a minimum market value for that box. A limited number of each price point will be available. Due to their limited nature these will be limited to one per account (one purchase for the weekend) for those who purchased an Adult 3-Day ticket as an additional Bonus Benefit!
The Fling! Shopswere our souvenir shops onsite at BreyerFest. These areas would normally have carried our swag and our limited edition event themed models – Greenman, MacKenzie (our plush), and 3 other items we are going to announce soon! These items are (and have always been) available to all ticket holders – 3-Day and Single-Day.
Our Special Run models, Boudicca, Hamish, the Sláinte Surprise, Ash, Brighid & Beltane, Oak, Epona, Thorn, and Lugh – are exclusively available to our Adult and Child 3-day ticket holders. Celebration 3-Day ticket holders do not have access to this collection.
For a full explanation of each model category, take a look at pages 6-7 in the Guide to BreyerFest. This document was created to help explain the many complexities of this event. The Guide was developed for our onsite event format, but the general information on the models still applies!
How do I shop these collections?
Store Specials and Fling! Shop models have always been available to all BreyerFest guests, Single- or 3-Day ticket holders. Guests were limited to 1 per person as you go through the store. This will be the same case online. All ticket holders can purchase 1 of each of the Store Specials and Fling Shop models on each of their store visits. Store visits will be limited based on the number of tickets purchased, 1 visit per ticket per day.
It is our goal to simplify the shopping experience online as much as possible. Bringing BreyerFest to a virtual format mid-way through the year has been a herculean task but we are confident with the plans we have in place. We hope you are looking forward to VBF as much as we are!
