Update:
I did a quick visit to the thrift store today and was sad to see the only pony bag was mostly McDonald’s and G3.5 and a Rainbow Dash. I almost left the bag behind when my guy said to have another look. And I’m so happy I did because I found Star Dreams!!! This little filly has been very difficult for me to find.
Here’s a picture of the bag-o-ponies I nabbed just for Star Dreams today. Both Rainbow and Star Dream still have factory elastics and curls just need some surface cleaning. :)

————————————————
I’ve had a rough week/weekend with my parents being away and being the only person taking care of both my grandparents (one is home on palliative care, the other early onset Alzheimer’s) on my own. Then taking care of my cat who had dental surgery and working full time... I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend, Saturday I woke up to find out my dear friend’s Frenchie suddenly passed away. Heartbroken I spent my Saturday with her and reassuring her she did all the right things for her dog...

Anywhoot. Because of all the stress I’ve been under this week I contacted someone on FB whose had a lot of ponies for at least a week or two. I found out they were still available and I decided to buy from her as she had Mommy Bouquet, Mirror Mirror and Baby Whirly. All ponies I’ve been wanting for awhile, the rest were just bonus. Well, thanks to my rotten luck this week all the ponies are kinda baity. I’m going to clean and fix them up as best I can but I feel so defeated today, I did a basic clean on these guys (most anyhow) and then I will take heads off and fully clean tomorrow after work hopefully.

Here’s some pictures of the lot after basic quick wipe down:

Oh man, that's discouraging. I didn't even know about your grandparents. Those ponies look pretty decent to me.

I have a thought that might cheer you up - PONY MEET!!!

Also, here's hoping another nice package happens along this week. ;)

Nothing like pony therapy when things are bad. Hopefully you can get them all spruced up to your liking! To me they look pretty nice, but having them in person is always different

I think I had a fairly successful haul for only a small jaunt this morning.

Went to TRU to see if they had any of the Unicorn/Pegasus/Rainbows (2nd round) yet but nothing. But! I did find the Parlour finally, so I snagged that and they also had the FS glittery Celestia and Luna I’ve been waiting for. When I got to the register the parlour wouldn’t scan and on the sixth or seventh time the cashier tried doing something it scanned at $5.00!!!!!! My eyes darted from the screen to her to the screen and she asked me for my member card I gave it to her paid and ran yelling “start the car!! Start the car!!” She charged me $5.00 for EACH of my items, no sales today just something strange but (maybe selfishly) I was ecstatic.

Then my mom and I went to the Value Village (Savers) next door and I found a (pre-opened) bag of Sweetheart Sisters! I have Starflash but this new one is a welcomed upgrade for me, though the bottom of her flower is nicked off. I scavenaged the store for more G1’s because these girls are in pretty perfect shape but sadly nothing. But I do want to know what was removed from the package. So annoying that people just feel it’s okay to do that. I buy bags up bags of toys with lots that I don’t actually want, I pay for the bag and a lot of the time I will just take what I want and leave the rest with the cashier. It’s so annoying to me when people do that, especially in a situation like this when I could’ve ended up with another pony or two... but I’m still thrilled to have what I found.

I found someone selling this lot of FB and had to drive past where he lives today. So contacted him if he was willing to take $10 for this lot and to my surprise he went for it.
So excited to have the purse back in my collection and the suitcase (in near mint condition shirt of stickers being in it and a bit of rust on the clasp) and to have a couple complete pony wear sets too. And a bonus Twilight! (Thinking about customizing her a little.)

And the awesome stickers inside the suitcase.

Yes! I’m fortunate enough that I’m kind of central to several different large cities. This lot in particular I had to drive 1.5 hours to get to but I was already heading that direction to see a friend. Also he super discount his posted price for me, so that was a big bonus.
