We hope you are all enjoying the 4th of July weekend and know you are all counting down the last two weeks till BreyerFest: Horse of a Different Color! We can’t wait for Breyer fans to take home all of the beautiful models that we’ve made exclusively for this summer’s celebration! Today’s spotlight showcases a vendor who makes some incredible custom stands that will add some sophistication (and security) to those “tippy” models!
Meet SMD Customs!
SMD Customs was created to fill the need for sturdier, more durable stands for certain Breyer models. As a long time hobbyist, co-owner Amber Olive, decided to create a metal stand that would be a perfect fit for Breyer models that was sturdy and would last. She knew some hobbyists were hesitant to buy certain models (or not want to display them) in fear of the plastic base not being supportive enough.
She partnered up with someone who also loves model horses, and is a CNC machinist who had experience cutting and shaping metals. Together they have created some amazing custom bases and stands out of aluminum, stainless steel, and wood! They love the reactions of customers when they receive their bases.
Now residing only 45 minutes away from the Kentucky Horse Park after moving from Iowa, they are excited to attend a BreyerFest in person one day, now that it is in their backyard. Last year, they attended BreyerFest for the first time virtually, and were a part of the virtual Marketplace. This is their second year attending and selling. They are excited to show off their stands and hope to give people, who were afraid to collect certain “tippy” models, a chance to own and display those models with confidence!
