Title: any pony events in southern california ?
Post by: warp on April 03, 2019, 12:04:25 PM
not entirely sure if this thread goes here, but i was wondering if anyone knows of any pony-related events (cons, swap meets, etc., anything really) in southern california ?

i've unfortunately never heard of anything like that happening over here but it'd be great to be able to go somewhere in person where i can buy G1s, or to even have some SoCal friends who are into G1 in general !

Fellow SoCal pony here! I know we have a Central California pony meetup, but they're up in San Jose as I recall, so it's a bit of a hike! I went to a SoCal meetup a year (or two?) ago, and it was a small gathering at a house, it was a ton of fun! But IDK if there's a lot going on here right now, and I find it hard to believe there's not a lot of collectors in our area!

Wondercon just happened last weekend, and although they tout a lot of vintage toy stuff in their booths, there was maybe 2 booths (out of 100!) that had ponies. I know the Frank N Sons swap meet happens regularly, and I found some ponies the one chance I had to go! It was a lot of fun! That's in the LA area, if that's near you!

I think the Rose Bowl flea market sometimes has stuff? I just haven't been personally, becaue I'm pretty far south from LA! But I hope we have more folks chiming in with ideas!

I am having a meet June 2nd, it's in central California about 45 mins to an hour north of Fresno in a little town called Delhi; I will have some beds available for anyone who wants to stay overnight, too. :)

I think that might be yours I'm thinking of! (Or maybe I'm conflating the two!) I still wish I was close enough to go, I love your Bluebelle army!!
