It's with heavy heart I write this post. This was the first time in my life, where I left G1 ponies behind. Why, you ask? Value Village is just ridiculous. I'm sure others have noticed the staggering increase in prices all across the board, but this is just nonsense. I found Parasol, Trickles and Skyflier today. Parasol was priced at $15, Trickles $10 and I think Skyflier was $15 as well. The worst part was that they were not in good condition. All had marker on their bodies and hair cuts. It wasn't until now that I realized I don't have Trickles. Maybe I should have grabbed her, but I just can't deal with their ridiculousness. They know nothing about the products they sell. They have just caught on that G1's are valuable to collectors, but have no idea that these ponies are considered baits to many. Even if they had been $5 each, I would have rescued them, but I'm not about to reward Value Village for their disgusting behaviour and prices. Did I mention I once found an open box of tampons for sale in a Value Village. Disgusting. They could have donated that to a women's shelter or something, but no, they want their grubby hands on every cent. So disappointing.
