Toy store Toy Traders in BC, Canada
« on: December 04, 2017, 11:31:33 PM »
I mentioned this in another thread but I didn't want to thread hijack, so I thought I'd show my photos here instead.  ;)  These are from Toy Traders in Langley, BC.

























Amazing place, crammed with new and old toys.  Those big dioramas are set high on the walls.

The G1 ponies were pretty high priced so I didn't buy any, but I definitely enjoyed seeing them.  (The G3s were quite affordable.)

I would die to walk into that place and see ponies. Only way I can buy non current ponies is via eBay and that relies on photos. So seeing them before I buy or even just browsing would be fantastic.

What was the price that they were asking on those G1 ponies?

It's been a few months since I was there, but I think it was like . . . $12-ish or $15-ish and up, even for common ponies.  There weren't any super deals or anything, but if it was a pony you really wanted it might have been worth it since you wouldn't have to pay shipping.  (Also most of the ponies were in REALLY nice shape, I didn't see a lot of frizzy hair or marks or anything.)

I did aaaalmost buy a Gingerbread who came with her backcard for $24.  She was pure white with no age marks.  But ponies with fading pink in their hair stress me out so I didn't get her. ;)

I think G3s were $4 to $6 or something like that.

OMG!! I'm moving there.  No really.  Thank you so much for posting this.  I will definitely go there when I move in a few years if it's still open.
