To Our Loyal and Valued Customers and Friends:
As the COVID-19 situation has progressed, it has remained our absolute top priority to protect the health and well-being of our employees, the Creede/Mineral County Community, and you - our customers and friends. We feel a tremendous responsibility to continue to monitor and do our part to help slow this rapidly evolving virus. The scale of impact remains unknown, and we feel it is our duty to do our part to help protect our community. Colorado is now allowing small businesses to be open with restrictions to protect us all. We are beyond happy to say that we are now OPEN DAILY from 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. We sanitize touchable surfaces daily and have hand sanitizer throughout the Gallery, masks available, and are practicing Social Distancing. We welcome you to Creede with open arms and big hugs from 6 feet away. You can also shop with us virtually online via Facebook messenger, by phone (719-658-2376) or email (rarethingsgallery@yahoo.com). If you need a gift for anyone in your life, let us know and we will wrap it up and offer curbside pick-up, shipping and possible home delivery in Mineral County.       Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and brave…and we hope to see you soon.

Any of the designs presented in our Stock Design Catalog can be crafted from your own horse’s hair to create a unique and lasting keepsake. Because custom hair pieces are extremely time consuming (each hair is counted, quality checked and cleaned before braiding), add 20% to stock prices for tail hair, and 30% for pulled ‘wads’ or main hair. Please allow 12 weeks for custom orders.

Instructions for Collecting Horsehair

  • Pick the longest hairs at the bottom of the tail.
  • While lifting them to the side with one hand, pull the shorter hairs away with the other hand.
  • Pull away as many short hairs as possible so that you are cutting only the long hairs
  • Cut close to the tail bone.
  • Cut 2-4 bunches from different places on the tail so as not to take too big a chunk out of one place.
  • The final bundle should be about a 1/4” (about a pencil or little finger) in diameter.
  • If you wash the hair, make sure it is completely dry before putting it in a zip-lock bag. Clearly print your name and phone number on the bag with a permanent marker.
