The first time I was out shopping specifically for ponies I picked up Scoops and Peppermint Crunch at Value Village, then found a Princess Pony (Cant' remeber the name) at Goodwill.

Since then, on various outings, I've found... Skydancer, SS Northstar, Banana Surprise, baby Noddins, baby Cuddles, a really creepy, demented looking Sweet Stuff that I'm scared to be around, some random unicorn that I don't remember (In Glory's pose, I dislike that pose and I dislike rainbow ponies, so I forget.) Aaand today I just found Edgar the elephant. :)
Although I doubt I'll be keeping him, he's just not my thing.

Apart from that, I find g3's all the time, so I've built up a huuuge bait box. Anchors Away was probably my best G3 find, though.

My only find was at a charity shop so it kinda fits here. A Lady Baby fakie. She's a cream colour with light green hair. The only fault on her is the fact her tail is a little frizzy and knotty. Great for less than a pound!

 I found this at a garage sale without any ponies for about 8 bucks.. I got up at 6am to go to this particular sale and my earliness was rewarded!

 One of my favorite thrift shops I found this gal for 7.50 0.o my only MOC pony I own I wouldn't trade her for anything!

I tend to find quite a few G1's at thrift stores and garage sales... I guess I'm lucky :D

Most of my childhood ponies are from yard/garage sales, so it's hard to recall.  Ummm....  I usually find ponies nearly everytime I go - Friday night right before closing is a great time; they are stocking for the AM rush on Saturday.
