Title: hewwo ⸜( ˙ ˘ ˙)
Post by: decortico on April 19, 2019, 01:53:27 PM
hello !! thank you sm for having me here 'v'

i'm 18, from new england in the US & on top of a lotttt of other things, i've recently gotten back into collecting ponies - specifically G3 as those are what i grew up with from literally birth until i was a pre-teen and stupidly gave away all of my collection. yes, all, and i used to be so proud of them too  :cloud:

but alas, i've grown up now & work & make my own money and stumbled across a tumblr blog that was dedicated to someone's pony collection and alllll the memories came back, and i knew i had to go start it up again to try and find the ponies i used to have hehe. so i went right to ebay, and any day now my first 3 G3 ponies should be coming in the mail!
I bought Triple Treat first, because she was absolutely my favorite as a child and I needed her back asap lol.

so ,,,, i'm happy to be here with my own kind and hope to definitely be watching the sales thread & posting a want list of my top favorites soon vuv

Hi! Welcome to the Arena, decortico :D

I'm sorry you don't have your childhood collection :hug: It seems to be all too common among collectors. I also gave away my childhood collection.

Congrats on your G3 purchases though! Triple Treat is a wonderful pony :)

Enjoy the forum, we're glad to have you here! I'll see you around!

:) I still see a few g3s at flea markets and such (priced $1-2 dollars). If you have any in your area, check it out because it could be a cheap way to rebuild your collection!

Hi decortico  :cheer:

I once sold off some of my collection and I've come to regret it too!  At least there are lots of places online to buy them all back from I guess, lol.  I hope you enjoy the forum and adding to your new collection :happy:
