$50 Dream Castle w/ box!
« on: June 09, 2021, 08:44:39 PM »
For a few weeks I had been watching a facebook marketplace post for a Dream Castle w/ box, many but not all accessories, Majesty and Spike.  It was for porch pickup.  And it was only $50!
 It was only a couple hours from me, but I had one huge problem: Atlanta was between me and there.  I have horrible driving anxiety.  I do not drive in big cities, heavy traffic, or highways greater than four lanes.  I couldn't ask anyone to drive me, because most people don't know about my horrible, embarrassing secret pony collection. 
So I watched the ad, knowing there are other Georgia pony collectors out there, knowing someone would snatch away this prize I couldn't have because of my fear.
But, days passed and the ad stayed.  I reached out to the seller.  Hey, would you ship?  She said yes!!!
I already have a Dream Castle I bought off ebay twenty years ago in 2018, but it's discolored, broken, hot glued back together.  A literal wreck.  I can't believe I paid for it.  But now I have this awesome, great looking one, with it's original box!  And Majesty... This is my first Majesty without head/body mismatch!  She's amazing!
So glad I reached out to this kind seller!

I laughed so hard at this, because I can so relate! Congrats on getting your castle though...that's an awesome score. What a lucky find!

That's awesome! Very cool you got the box. I can relate with the driving in heavy traffic. It also gives me anxiety. I once had to drive through Washington D.C. and it was super scary. Hell, even driving though Omaha at times during rush hour (and this isn't a super big city or anything) makes me tense!

Ohhhhh! How wonderful of the seller to ship! Congrats on your castle and the box!

Agreed. My family knows about my pony habit, doesn’t make asking them to drive me to pony purchasing places any easier!
