3 bags full of G1s at Goodwill
« on: August 21, 2017, 03:40:06 AM »
As usual, I can't post a brag without copious amounts of context. I'm putting my rambling under spoilers so you don't have to scroll for years to see the pictures lol.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I couldn't believe it. I pulled out one bag, then another, entirely filled with g1 ponies. I then proceeded to tear apart the toy aisle because I had a sneaking suspicion, and sure enough, I found a third bag tucked away on the bottom shelf. They also had a G4 cardboard castle, but I passed because... cardboard castle.

Here are some rare photos of the cryptid that is me upon finding the ponies:

AAAAAAAAAAAAAA I CANT BELIEVE IT. They're not in the best condition - rust, discoloration, cut hair on Shady, that newborn twin is a bait for sure, Galaxy's tail is missing and she rattles - but AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! THREE BAGS FULL OF G1S IN THE WILD!!!!! Only $5 a bag!!!!!!! I've never had a find like this in a thrift store!! I've only found a single g1, and the occasional lonely G3 or fakie, and those are usually at Family Thrift Center, not Goodwill! I can't believe it! Lavender Lace and the Princesses especially look BEAUTIFUL! I just got Princesses Amber, Ruby and Pearl not too long before leaving home, and now I've got some of their friends! I've got the Ruby to my Sapphire, and the 4 main Crystal Gems! I just need Aquamarine ("How do I look!?" "AWFUL, SMALL AND MEAN!") to complete the set! And my first Perfume Puff, and she's GORGEOUS! That Afro, I love it!

I've had to downgrade from pony room to pony drawer for now until I can visit home, but you know what, I think I'm okay with that ;)

Here's the drawer in question:

I also found some wave 17 and 20(!!!!!) blindbags at Walmarts in the area. I've since been back to the one that sold the wave 20s, but I grabbed the last few and they haven't restocked yet 8( Still, stores at home all skipped over wave 17, and most others are still in wave 15, so this is GREAT! I'm definitely gonna give it some time and then head back to that Walmart again.

Here's my newest blindbags:

Lastly, through a combination of getting lost and exploring the area with my father, I've found some really cool areas! I found an AWESOME mall - an anime store, a game store, an arcade with little remote controlled mini cars you can race on tracks, a corset store, a crystal store, a BUNCH of nerd stuff/collectible stores, and those are just the few things that were open yesterday at 8 PM/today on Sunday! There's much more I haven't seen yet!

There's also, as I discovered today, my dream complex: a shopping center that contains a Target AND a Toys R Us (and an IHOP!!!!!)... IN THE SAME LOT. I can't believe it! I also found a complex with both a Barnes and Noble and a Toys R Us, but considering I legitimately almost died getting there, I don't think I'll be heading back there.

And one final thing - I saw a billboard for this city's branch of my favorite flea market ever, and I checked, and it's less than 30 minutes away from campus! That's much closer than the local branch is to my house back home! When the weather starts cooling off, I'm definitely going to start heading over there on Sunday mornings, to give myself an incentive to get all my studying done early lol. Besides that, I've seen ads/billboards for TONS of other flea markets, AND there's a Family Thrift Center only about 10 minutes away from campus :')

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go start my economics chapter that's due tonight at midnight lol.

Whoa that's awesome! Congrats on your new ponies!

Ahh so I guess some Goodwills still have the $5 a bag system. All of the ones around me have moved to bins of toys you have to dig through, which is makes pony hunting much more difficult. Glad to see some still have the bags!

Oooh! How wonderful! We don't have any pony luck like that over here. Or perhaps it's just my pony luck. Good luck in college! I know you'll do just great!
Stop being so gosh darn cute! You're going to kill someone with those levels of cuteness!

Congrats, you found some nice ones. :heart:

Also I am SO GLAD I am not the only one who associates the Princess ponies with the Crystal Gems. I put mine with my SU merch for that reason.

I've actually named the second set of princesses (which I have none of yet) after gems as well, so Aquamarine, Topaz, Zircon and Emerald can be together as well  :lol: Too bad there's only one green princess or i could have Peridot as well.

Congrats , awesome ponies :) and stay safe big cities traffic is so bad, people prefer to crash than let you change lanes, very rude stressed out people even on super markets, I do my groceries at night during the week,  weekend days are packed, dodging people that can hit you with their carts is a skill  :biggrin: -_- .
next year my niece goes to college ,I kinda cringe at the thought of it , but we all have to adjust to changes ,best of luck in college to you.

What a lovely brag. I'm so happy you got to catch up with your dad and then you found ponies!!!  I love the pic of you holding the bags in the shop. It makes me feel like I'm right there with you - and I am sure I would have exactly the same expression on my face if I had discovered such a find too :D :D

Major congrats xx
