Next week, the Clarion hotel in Lexington, Kentucky (USA) will become our home away from home for a few days, whilst we attend the annual model horse festivities and celebrations. Model Horse lovers from all over the world converge on Lexington and the Kentucky Horse Park to celebrate everything model horse and equine related. Last year was brilliant. This year is going to be absolutely fabulous!!
I wanted to give you a little preview as to what you will find in our pop-up Copperfox shop to purchase, take home, see and possibly win. We are located in Room 330 of the Clarion hotel and we will be open on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Limited Edition Models
We will have 120 Limited Edition Models with us, looking for loving new owners, with many familiar faces from the Copperfox Range available. We even have managed to find some faces, which haven't been available for a while and are long sold out. It's amazing what you find hidden in the corners of a warehouse and in *that* box that was mis-labelled...!! (duh!). Like usual, each model comes with it's a certificate of authenticity, nestled in it's foam lined Union Jack box ready for the trip home. Limited Edition models are priced at $85 each.
We have 200 Copperfox Seconds also looking for new owners, with many colourways from the Copperfox range available- including our UK special run model Bertie. We do not have any Irish Sports Horse seconds sadly (they have all been re-homed) but we have some Welsh, Connemara and Exmoor Seconds. (If you have not heard of Copperfox Seconds, they are a selection of models that can be used as shelf models or as canvases to create your own unique customized model. Each Copperfox second model is painted and finished like all Copperfox Limited Edition Models but seconds have some things that prevent it from making our first team, be it small shiny marks or simply the incorrect painting of a face or leg marking. Small things that mean these models are looking for new homes, either as a shelf companion to other models in your collection or to be transformed into something new). Copperfox Seconds are priced at $55 each.
Copperfox Blank Canvases
Copperfox Blank Canvases are as their name implies, blank canvases that you can use to create your very own unique customised Copperfox Model horse. Paint them, Pastel them, Transform them! Each Blank Canvas is an recycled Copperfox Model Horse; we had to find a use for all our models wanting a new lease of life! Each blank canvas is not a blank or raw horse. They are supplied painted and will need to be stripped and prepped before their transformation can begin.
We have 120 Blank Canvases looking for people to transform them into something new. We have the Welsh, Connemara and Exmoor pony moulds available as Blank Canvases and they each are priced at $35.
Preview of upcoming models
We will have a sample of each of the upcoming models available to view (but please remember that they will not be available to purchase. This is due to the models going on pre sale on the 2nd August 2017). We will have a Copperfox Toby and Rupert, as well as some other models that will be joining our range later this year (the decorator model is so cool!)
Sadly our new mould won't be previewing at the event (sad face). He would have loved to come along but unfortunately we didn't have any spare copies of the model to bring. He is currently awaiting to be transformed and copied into resin and we could not risk bringing the original across the pond, on several flights. He will have his time in the spotlight very soon though!
Whilst we are at the festivities, we will be hosting a raffle to WIN Copperfox Model Horses everyday- and the models you can win are a little bit special! All models are extremely exclusive, in that they were not available on general sale and could only be won, either by raffle or by winning them as a prize in our mini live shows at our tour stops.
There will be two separate raffles each day (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), with the lucky winner drawn at the end of each day. Please scroll down below to discover what models are available to WIN on each day.
Thursday Raffle Models:
A Glossy Lakeview Knight and a Glossy Loughnatousa Fabio. Both models are limited to just 10 pieces and usually are only available via winning a raffle at one of our UK Copperfox Tour Stop events. Both models come presented in their Union Jack boxes, complete with hand written and signed certificate.
Friday Raffle Models:
A Glossy Sovereign and a Glossy Finnigan. Sovereign was limited to just 10 pieces and usually are only available via winning a raffle at one of our UK Copperfox Tour Stop events. Finnigan is our In Hand Champion Prize Model for 2017 Copperfox Tour Live Shows. Both models come presented in their Union Jack boxes, complete with hand written and signed certificate.
Saturday Raffle Models:
Something a bit special for this day!! Not only do we have a Glossy Marble, who was created in a run of 9 pieces and was our Prize Model for 2016 Copperfox Tour Live Shows, we have a Copperfox TEST model up for grabs! The chestnut roan Welsh Cob model was created at the Copperfox factory earlier this year (during my visit in June). Both models come presented in their Union Jack boxes, complete with hand written and signed certificate.
Other items coming for the trip too include some Copperfox Merchandise- hoodies, tee shirts, scarfs and pins. We will also have a selection of hand made tack that we have picked up through our travels throughout the years.
Quite the selection of goodies! I must just mention that we cannot reserve or hold models, they all are on a first come, first served basis and of course subject to availability.
I look forward to seeing you all next week. Please do come and find us and the Copperfox Herd in Room 330 at the Clarion during the 21st-24th July. Come and see the models, let us know your thoughts, ideas, comments, suggestions- anything and everything.
See you soon
