Another Question: Who Sold Carriages?

Hi, me again.  I'm trying not to spam the community, and thanks for the enormous list of illnesses and information about inns!

This question is a quickie: in my fic, loosely set in the 1800s, the main character swaps/sells a large barouche-type carriage with four horses for a smaller carriage with two horses.  Would he go to a blacksmith?  A carriage maker?  Thanks in advance!
