Drive-by bragging
« on: January 14, 2018, 05:39:25 PM »
I was gonna do a nice detailed brag as I went thru and cleaned up my girls, but someone at work has a medical emergency, so I won’t have another day off until the following weekend. But I’m too excited to just keep quiet, so this is a real quick brag that I’ll update when I do get the chance to clean everyone up and such.
ANYWAYS, it’s been years since I’ve found a G1 in the wild. Probably around eight years. But yesterday I went to a fleamarket and found this wonderful man whose stall was full of vintage toys. He let me have everything in the pic for $50.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
The castle is only missing a few bits, Skydancer, Sprinkles, Baby Half Note, and Surf Rider are new additions for me, and Moon Dancer and Windy are upgrades from the ones I already had. They’re all in lovely condition with just surface dirt that should come right off, except Surf Rider who seems to have some stubborn rust stains I’ll have to put some elbow grease to.
But I’m just so pleased! And like I said, I’ll update whenever I do have a chance to give these new ladies some TLC.

What a beautiful brag!

Also the title made me think of G3 ponies rolling up in pinstriped suits, sunglasses and tommy guns.

This is so awesome ! Congrats for all you new stuff.
It makes me think that I should search for G1 playsets in flea markets too. I would like to have them. ^^

Finally got the ladies cleaned up. They were grimy, but it was all surface dirt that easily came off except for the sea pony who may need some sun fading treatment.
Now that I’m done with them, I can start cleaning the wonderful lot I got from Skylar the other day! ^.^
