Recent Flea Market Finds!
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:37:19 AM »
There are a lot of big flea markets every summer around where I live, and I usually find a few ponies at each, but nothing to warrant a big brag. But the past two I've gone to I've had amazing luck at, so I thought I'd share!  ^.^

From the first, a few weeks ago:







The Pretty Parlor is half-faded, but I couldn't pass it up, especially with all the accessories. I find it kind of amusing that the waterfall playset duck was in the accessory baggie for the parlor, lol

In addition to the pony stuff, I got some Japanese Pokemon cards and a toy of the Blue Lion from Voltron.

From today's market trip:










I just about died when I saw the Show Stable. It needs some serious cleaning (along with most of the ponies), but nearly all the accessories are there and I couldn't be happier.  :accomplished: I also got a GS Pokeball and some more Japanese cards!

Ooh, great finds! I especially like the 10th anniversary pony! It's great that the show stable came with accessories, I've always thought the little bed was so sweet. :-)

Oh how wonderful! I'd love to have a gs ball and a show stable! I've been looking up and down for those sorts of things in my area. What wonderful luck!

Boxed Show Stable + Anniversary pony? I'm not surprised you "just about died" when you saw them for sale!!  :biggrin:
Amazing finds, well done!  :lovey: :lovey:

Thank you everyone! All my new ponies have been cleaned and are currently sitting with some conditioner in.

SS Sundance has yellowed horribly though, so I'm thinking about deflocking. Daddy Sweet Celebrations has had an odd haircut but apart from that is pristine, and anniversary pony is missing her tail ribbons. Otherwise, everyone is in generally good condition.

They look so nice and clean! My anniversary pony's also missing her streamer. I wonder how hard it would be to replace it.

Wow that is a lucky find there, and to have the show stable with the box is something wonderful.
