Wonder if my Rite Aide that did a store remodel two/three years ago still has those Holly Hobby stickers. From when the reboot was going on, I know they had G3/3.5 stickers as well still on the shelf. Hmm, I'll go take a look tomorrow because I'm curious.

At the same store, when I first moved here I found a G3 Party Cake! She lingered around till the remodel, went to check and she was gone. Should have bought her when I had the chance, it's a time warp I tell you. Stories like this are fascinating.

Back in 2012 I found two G3s at a TK Maxx, maybe a week apart. Old stock can show up whenever and wherever.

I can't say I've seen G3 stickers, but we do have a lot of old G4 stock in general from several years ago that magically pops up on shelves from time to time. So I wouldn't be remotely surprised if I did suddenly find G3 stickers in a store here. Because nothing is ever too old to sell, right...?

It reminds me of the fact Birmingham TRU still had the 1994 Bed and Crib set on sale in their stores in 2001 when I was at university...

And that my parents bought Baby Applejack (1984 release) for me in 1995...

I really feel like stock changes hands lots of times sometimes but ultimately it's about making money, so why not..?

Congrats on your find xD

My Walgreens seems very slow to turn over G4 MLP stock, so who knows what might crop up. Still need to check on those stickers, because science.

Now that I think about it, I feel like I've seen more G3 stuff in the wild than 3.5 haha!
I see G3 stickers here and there, and even G3 books and a board game once (last year)
