Sidelined from an active horse-oriented life by surgery, Ginger Jacobson Brundage had time to contemplate projects for herself. One idea that appealed to her was an online horse-themed jewelry business. She favored silver and turquoise appointed items and was able to locate wholesalers to supply her virtual store. That was over five years ago. Business was slow, life picked up speed and Ginger forgot about her inline endeavor until she was notified by Pay Pal that she had made a sale.
That notification reinvigorated Ginger to attend to Western Store For You by locating more sources for the personal jewelry she had listed. But to her amazement, the price of silver had risen dramatically in the intervening years and new items were fairly expensive. Undaunted, she sourced a broader range of more affordable items, keeping to her horse theme, but adding unique pieces that are not seen in the usual tack store. She has sources now for Western purses and clothing that she intends to add on occasion to her website. Her future plan is to grow the business into a recognized shopping spot.
The backstory on Ginger is that she originated and maintained the SilverLite Rodeo Drill Team out of Eugene, sponsored by the SilverLite Trailer company. Her team of riders entertained audiences for about nine years before disbanding due to Ginger’s health. She currently rides on her own property in the outdoor arena there, keeping three geldings and a breeding stallion in shape for trails and camping. Her two granddaughters visit several times a year and always look forward to a ride with grandma and grandpa.
Ginger’s favorite place to ride, however, is on the beach at Bullards Beach State Park, a family-oriented campground just two miles north of Bandon, Oregon. Her family takes their annual campout there, along with horses and grandkids. The horse camp features easy beach access as well as activities relating to the nearby Coquille River.
