Introducing Myself
« on: July 13, 2019, 03:31:49 AM »
Hi Everyone!

I live in Virginia with my wonderful husband and our sweet 8-year-old daughter.

I began pony collecting as a child, with the original six G1s. I stopped collecting after 1986. While visiting my mom a couple of years ago, she brought out my My Little Ponies and Show Stable for my daughter to play with. Seeing those colorful, cheerful ponies again, combing and braiding their hair, and playing with them with my daughter rekindled my interest and I brought them home. I also began poking around on eBay—just to see what I missed in the years between 1986 and my daughter’s first ponies purchased in 2014. What a surprise! I began seriously collecting and since then, I have acquired ponies from all four generations, including some from Europe, the UK, one from Brazil, and several customs. I began restoring ponies and soon had a small eBay business to fund some of my purchases. My husband—an exceptional thrifter—and my daughter jumped in to help and build their own collections. Our small house is now filled to bursting with ponies!

I’m delighted to be a part of this community and, while my participation will likely come in fits and spurts, I look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome to the arena! That’s great that you still have your childhood ponies! How many would you say you have now? You have an eBay business! That’s great!  :) Anyway, see you around the forums!

Thank you! That’s a great question; I don’t know! 100? More? Less? Many more if I count the boxes of ponies waiting to be cleaned or restored for sale. I should count the members of my own collection.  :)
