Did I do well or paid too much?
« on: January 21, 2012, 04:46:38 AM »
a while ago I met this old lady that was selling heaps of G3's and in one of the bags there was a Hula Hula, she knew that it was the G1 pony and said that her daughter was going to get rid of all of hers. I of course said straight away, I'll take the lot. She was happy to keep them aside for me when she brings them.
 
After waiting weeks and I mean two months for her to bring them she brought a bag today full of G1's. Only problem is unlike the G3's where she was pretty much giving them away she wanted $10 for each pony and like $5 for the babies. I was thinking "oh great what a let down" I looked through the bag and there were some seriously manky pony, I mean riddled with mould etc, there were some that I liked a Princess pony was pretty much mint the BnG's have the pink stipe sorta and Posey's hair is pink too.
 
Anyway here's a picture of what I got, I paid $65 for this lot.

She's bringing more for me next week, there's another collector wanting them too, but since I asked first she's letting me take first dibs, I wish they weren't so much, I would have loved to have taken them all and given them away to Aussies on here. I have more money that I saved for this, so let's she what she brungs, I hope the other collector gets some of what they want. I think a clean up will work wonders. I did say thank you for keeping them aside for me and that I appeciated it. What does everyone think???

I think it is pretty decent price.

As long as they are in good condition $10 for a G1 adult is good and $5 for a baby is great. Especially when there is no postage.

Thank you so much, I was worried, there were some that were horrible and had mould all over I avoided them, but who knows, next week she may have Mimic. :D She's bringing plushies too. :)

Heck... if the Sea ponies are in good condition... with their shells... I'd say that's worth it! :D

They look great to me! Congrats!

I agree, plus like Ringlets said, with shipping you would pay around that for some of those.  Just try to do some looking in sales list too see what things are going for so you know who to pick.  Congrats too.

I agree with what everyone else has said here - without shipping you did really well, $10 per adult and $5 per baby is great. They all do look nice too, some are probably worth a little less than what you paid, but some would be worth more, so I would say it would even out overall anyhow. Really nice lot :)

Thanks guys! I started cleaning the ponies up and they look good, just surface dirt etc, I have only cleaned Posey and I think her names Starflower they look gorgeous now.
 
By the way what's the Princess Ponies name? I know nothing about her?

This. The fact you got three $65 shells PLUS ponies seems great to me. Congrats on your haul! ^^
