OOAK Venezuelan Posey, 3$. 
Pretty sure I've used up all my pony finding luck for life at this point, given 99% of my mostly-complete collection was thrifted.
G1 Wishlist  It's the final countdown! Looking to purchase the last few G1's for my collection - Watercolor Baby Sea Ponies Foamy, Misty & Surfy - Red Roses - SHS Sweet Sundrop - Springy - Teeny Tiny Snookums (#2)

I've found a few fairly rare ponies in my day.  I've been officially collecting for over 20 years, so hopefully I'd have at least one "in the wild" story!  No Rapunzels or rare foreign ponies, but I have had the odd bit of pony luck here and there.

I found a winged Dream Beauty(the white one - I'm terrible with names) at a thrift store once for 50 cents.  Nice condition too - even had pink hair!  I found a magenta Satin and Lace for $8 at a collectible toy store once, factory curls and pink hair too.  That was a nice surprise!  At the same toy store I found the "Magical Kingdom" porcelain scene for $35.  I didn't realize at the time that it was rare, but one sold on ebay for stupid money not long after I found mine.  It sat there for at least a full year before I bought it.  Nobody wanted it, or nobody knew what it was.  I knew of the porcelains, but I never wanted to collect them.  It was my birthday, and I wanted a pony.  That was the closest thing to a pony I could find, so I thought "why not?".   It just needed a bit of a wash with a toothbrush, and it was pretty much mint.

I think one of my luckiest finds was a Mimic at an antique mall.  She wasn't cheap, but she was well under $100.  And she was pretty close to mint!

In the wild...

All the mountain boys many many times for £1 each or less. Tornado was the hardest to find. Ice Crystal and Thundercloud the most common for me in my area back then :) I had a lot of those to trade over the years :D Wish I still did now :(

A bag of sweetie babies with clips and other rare UK stuff for £2

All three Jewellery babies with rings, £1 each

German Skydancer (Himmelstanzer) for 50p

Diamond Dreams for £1 (not sold in the UK)

Baby Leaper for 20p (not sold in the UK)

Lavender Woosie for £1

Italian Surprise, Heart Throb £1 each (not sold in the UK)

MIB Baby Starburst and Baby Paws (£3 each)

MOC set of best friend babies (£6 set)

MOC set of family babies eg sunbright (£6 set)

Pink Dreams with wings in weird clearance bag £1.25

Glory and Moondancer (for me, the biggest deal as not sold here XD) £1 pair

Gypsy, 30p

Spanish Strawberry Fair 30p

MIB Fleecy and Woolly £3.50

...Other than that, Susie (alt OOAK promotional version) on ebay for $21.

I also traded for a lot of my mail order and rarer ponies with ponies found from the carboot sale, so they essentially cost me carboot sale prices as well, £1 or less each.

And I remember one big tub of pony accessories including nearly all the ponywear sold in the UK, princess wands, hats, dragons (all 6) big brother hats, most bandanas and sundry other pony bits...£10 the lot.

My sister often got given dragons for free, but they usually only cost about 5p at carboot back then :D

At the goodwill pay per pound bins (in WI)... Baby school bag and a non-glitter symbol release gusty. I was absolutely floored.

Mine would be- Wind Walker dream beauty for .50 cents, Bunny Hop with pink hair & pocket bunny intact, a quarter, Rama Llama a quarter, Sea Mist's conch shell .10 cents, Mimic $2, & Rosey Posey $3

Mimic was from a lot for sale in my local classified ads. The conch shell was from a thrift, & the rest were yard sale  ^.^ :)

every time someone posts the pay per pound toys i get so jealous because i have been to every goodwill in my area and they dont have anything like that. all they have are pre-packaged cheap manufactured toys

SkyCakes : Oh my ! How lucky you ! I have a loose baby Surprise, a bit yellowed but perfect symbol. I really want the adult, she is really cute. (And every other pony with Neon Yellow mane for that matter)

Hopefully you will find better pony luck in the future. Or maybe a nice baby surprise and mom. :)

In the wild, mine would be Greek Peachy for a couple $ at the thrift store

How the ***** did all these Greek ponies find their way to Alberta Canada?

I found piggy Minty in a thrift store in Seattle a few years ago.  What a well-traveled pony!

They also graze. Beware nibbled carpets.

The only rare finds I've every stumbled across in the wild was 4/6 of the TAF babies in the toy bin at my local charity shop.  Baby Sugarberry, Baby Milky Way, Baby Love Melody, and Baby Sweet Tooth, each for $1.00!  And that's $1.00 AUD, so probably something like 75c each in USD.  I dug through the rest of the toys but couldn't find any other ponies, but I suppose I was being greedy to have hoped that Baby Dancing Butterflies and Baby Up Up and Away were in there too!  I held off on buying these babies for years because they were so ridiculously expensive, and then fate dropped four of them into my lap for $4.00.  And they were in excellent condition too!  Honestly I doubt I can ever top that find!

I've rarely found anything mlp in my neck of the woods in Maine but I have found the Tropical baby pegasus (Palm Tree?) in a flea market free bin and more recently the baby dragon that goes to one of the G2 unicorns in a bag with a lot of other misc accessories for $2
