Very unexpected in-the-wild G1 find - Happyglow!
« on: July 07, 2020, 02:06:42 PM »
I was supposed to pop to the supermarket, I did a detour to a neighbouring town and - what? - one of their charity stores was open! So of course I had to investigate...  :cool:

Wearing my mask, I gingerly went inside, only a couple of other customers within... my first charity shop visit since March! I did a quick scan, got slightly tempted by some Sylvanian Families furniture but decided not to get it and leave... as I did so, I passed a whole heap of recent donations and sat RIGHT ON TOP was A G1 PONY!

Behold - below a freshly scrubbed and disinfected Happyglow!

Happyglow was also wearing Tex's hat, so I thought perhaps he was amongst the donations too, the shop lady did a rummage for me but no other ponies were there - these were as yet un-quarantined donations. I REALLY wanted Happyglow and agreed that I was OK with handling her. I always travel with hand-gel so I felt OK in that respect.

£1 - what a bargain!

Her body is near-mint (it was so clean & smooth that at first I was unsure if she was a fakie) her hair is silky at the roots but beginning to get dry at the ends - I need to do a decent spa treatment later on.

I haven't yet tested the glow-in-the-dark functionality yet, perhaps something fun to try tonight with my kid!  :biggrin:

What a fab bit of pony luck, eh? I felt really lucky and it gave me happy feelings, even when later I was stood in an EPIC queue at the supermarket...  :newpony:

Congrats...what a lucky find! I so look forward to the day I can scour the many charity shops and antique malls we have in my area for ponies; 3 kids under 5 + those kind of shops = bad combination. In the meantime, I'll live vicariously through everyone's posts here!

I hope her glow function works for you...these ponies are so cool!

So nice to hear that people are still having G1 luck, and what a lucky detour to take before having to deal with the supermarket! Congrats on Happy Glow, she looks lovely.
Did you take the hat too?

Thanks everyone!  :)

And yes, as Happyglow was already wearing Tex's hat, it came as part of the purchase, too! Pony + hat for a grand total of £1.

I forgot to photograph it as it was drying out after being disinfected  :biggrin:
