It’s raining outside. In fact, it’s pouring rain and the thunder is coming and going. Aidan and hubby are gone until Thanksgiving. The cats are terrified of thunderstorms and are all hiding. The house feels quite empty!

It's raining ☔️ it's pouring! It's not very nice outside at all 😂 There is also thunder and all of the cats 🐱 are hiding. It feels strange because they are all usually clamoring for space on the couch. Aidan and hubby are gone until Thanksgiving. The house 🏡 feels so empty with no one else home and not a critter in sight! *aidanstoytrove.com* #aidanstoytrove #breyer #breyerhorse #modelhorse #weather #rainyday #rain #storm #thunderstorm #crescentcityca #rains #rainsucks #rainstorm #video #videooftheday #videoclip
On a model horse related note, we once again overhauled the shipping on the website. I can’t believe how hard it has been to offer anything but flat rate. Calculated and combined shipping requires expensive WordPress Plugins and while our website is still just getting off the ground, we’re trying to keep things cost effective for us and our customers! I believe we have finally conquered this and the website now offers shipping rates based on your location and the total weight of the items ordered. Hurray!
This applies to both domestic and International shipping. Canada has a significant discount from the rest of the world but other countries have the same shipping rate as it is very similar in cost. However, because of the post office’s pricing structure, International buyers likely won’t see much, if any of a rate decrease until the order hits 5 pounds. I apologize to our International buyers (and we have a lot!) but this is how USPS ended up restructuring their rates. And yes, it stinks.
We also discounted a lot of our 2016 Breyer line. We need to clear some space for yet another Breyer order that is due here on Tuesday. As I’ll be the only one home, I’m dreading wrestling with a pallet of ponies in the rain. But perhaps mother nature will cooperate and give me time to unload the Breyer boxes without drenching the horses and me? Please please? The Breyer Categories are slated to be restructured but you can see all of our Breyer Website Offerings here:
Thanks everyone, I hope you are staying warm and dry!

The much anticipated and much dreaded Breyer Black Friday sale is back! Breyer Collector’s Club Members get early access. To see the Black Friday Sale, make sure you are signed into your Breyer Account with an active membership. An active membership for 2016 or 2017 should work. Then click Collector’s Club on the top left. The first banner at the top will be for the Black Friday sale. Click the banner and you can see the goodies 🙂
In the past, Breyer’s Black Friday sale has been plagued with problems. They have oversold on multiple items and collector’s swarming to purchase great deals have even brought down the website. Hopefully this year goes more smoothly! If you decide to take the plunge, don’t forget to add your CLUBPLUS16 or CLUBPLUS17 discount code at checkout!
I anticipate that Breyer will keep adding new horses to the sale so do keep checking the website. This morning I only saw 2 horses that I was interest in:
Breyer Black Friday Sneak Peak
The Vintage Club Stablemate Bravo who was already sold out for the price of $19.95.
Vintage Club Charlie who is priced at $145.
But buyer beware, it looks like Breyer has raised their shipping cost.

I listed a lovely Breyer Scallywag to eBay. He was a Breyer 2007 Connoisseur Club model and is number 148 of 350. The Connoisseur Club was the predecessor to today’s Breyer Premier Club. He has a more intricate paint job than is seen on regular and even special run Breyer horses.
Scallywag’s auction ends Sunday November 20th at 6:14PM PST. Here is a direct link to his eBay auction:
Please browse around our Aidan’s Toy Trove eBay Store. We have over 600 Breyer Horses listed!
We also made a YouTube video of Scallywag for your viewing pleasure!
Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Were you lucky enough to win a Breyer Collector’s Club Avalanche? I’m very excited to say that I was drawn for one. I can’t wait to see what Avalanche looks like in person. I’m hoping for some lacey dapples but I won’t complain if she looks more like the stock photos.
So fess up, I want to hear if you were drawn for Avalanche. It sounds like this was a very popular drawing and I’m curious to know if most that entered were able to get one 🙂

The Breyer 2017 Vintage Club is now open to new members. There are some really neat models. If you missed my original post about the Breyer 2017 Vintage Club, it can be seen below:
While I am tempted to join, I think that I will pass on the Vintage Club for next year. Will you be joining the Breyer 2017 Vintage Club?
