I had the day off today and while I waited for an appointment I was browsing Facebook marketplace when I came across a new add.

It had a lot of G4 ponies but I spotted a G1 AJ and a BBE Shady, then TAF Baby Love Melody. I have never in my life left an appointment so quick I felt like I had won a pony lottery and surely it was too good to be true. Upon arrival I saw the bag full of ponies and left my money as we had discussed, and took the bag to my car. Then there she was in MINT condition. I was in love with a little plastic pony. One of my “secret” grail babies in my hands for an insane deal.

Best part is I also got more ponies I do actually need for my collection. So that was a bonus. But I never thought I would own Baby Love Melody in 1000 years, let alone locally.

How cool is that! SO far Marketplace has been a bust for me, but I keep lookin'. One day, I will find gold.

Honestly, looking at the sales on FB has become part of my daily routine. I usually check in the morning and afternoon, on weekends sometimes a bit more or less. Kinda bad I know but it’s just become a habit of mine which is why I see them so frequently. FB has also become a way I chat with co-workers about daily things we need to know about patients and stuff so I have to check messages frequently... sometimes a girl wonders off to look for pretty things. :$

Dang that’s some luck! In my area there is hardly ponies to be found. I try the FB marketplace and nothing, if I do they are super overpriced for just bait ponies.
