This Week's Brag: BAB, Retail Buys, and Vehicles!

Today's Tuesday, and you know what that means! Thrift brags once again <3 Lazy pictures today because I'm feeling sleepy and unproductive ahaha

First, we have a little thrift store downtown that was holding a neat Easter discount event. You open a plastic egg and get a discount for a certain amount. I'd found a $1.75 bag of toys that included a couple pony accessories, and I ended up getting them for free! So here we have a Cutie Mark Magic Rainbow Helicopter, and a car (I'm not sure what set it's from). I'm just a bit bummed that I didn't find/decide to buy anything else because my discount was $10 >u<

Next is a Fluttershy BAB that I got from another thrift store for $1! Her hair's a little frizzy and it looks like someone fixed a tear on her hoof as there's a visible line of stitches, but otherwise she's nice.

Lastly we have some retail store buys. I got DJ Pon-3 from a CMC Wedding Bash blind box yesterday <3 Then I decided to hit a dollar store because our Big Lots and Wal-marts had all quickly gotten rid of their previous wave stuff and I still hadn't bought a couple of the pearlies. Thankfully the dollar store had both Sea Swirl and Meadowflower! I thought about grabbing pearly AJ too but decided against it since I want to leave some pony funds for the pony meet, and she's just another version of AJ and not a different pony character altogether.

Very cute ponies - especially the items you got for free.  That was a nice Easter discount the thrift store was hosting.  Congrats :happy:

...and a car (I'm not sure what set it's from)

That's the lead car of the 2013 Princess Celebration Cars set: https://data.mlpmerch.com/brushables/set/crystal-princess-celebration/princess-celebration-cars/

OleGrayMane beat me to it. The Princess Celebration Cars set is based on Twilight Sparkle's coronation chariot from Magical Mystery Cure. They basically took off the original throne back and moved it to a separate trailer, made the single seat into two seats, then built up the side walls and added lights, a steering wheel, and a trunk to turn the chariot into a car
