Disclaimer: My depression and anxiety have made me a little bit nuts lately. I'm desperate to feel better and have been spending like a maniac.

I drove to meet the nicest lady today who was selling me her daughter's and grandaughter's collections. Everything is in amazing shape. Needs a little surface cleaning, but wow. There were no super rare or HTF ponies in the group, but the accessories. Holy crap. I was wanting the lion and elephant outfits so badly and their in perfect shape and they all have the pocket pals too. I also finally got the rain outfit too. I think it's missing one boot, but if that's all that is missing, I don't care. She even made custom outfits for ponies and tiny sleeping sets. Surely someone has an extra boot. This trip gave me a real boost. It was expensive, but I own most of the ponies, so I can likely sell or trade for ones I don't have.

Here's a few photos before clean up and organization, which will take me forever.

Also, I have another pick up tomorrow, which is incredible if I get it. I'm excited.

Am I doing something wrong with pics? I've been cutting and pasting? I have to show you guys what I picked up today. I'm losing my mind. Can you see THIS!

I'm afraid I can't see the pics, either... :( Maybe there's a problem with the coding? To display a picture here, the code is as follows - replace "( + )" with "[ + ]"

(IMG)image url goes here(/IMG)

Or if you're doing that correctly, maybe there's a problem with the image hosting site itself? Some image galleries/websites don't allow "hotlinking" the images to display on other webpages.

But regardless as to why the photos aren't displaying... congratulations on your awesome pony haul! :D Especially with all the accessories!

Wait, does this mean, no one has seen any of the photos I've posted on here. Like, ever? I didn't realize this site needed image hosting. I don't remember how to do that. Sigh.

I think I figured out what I was doing wrong. So, here's the last two days haul. The Dream Castle is complete. The waterfall is complete. The flutter has original wings and back card. Skyflier with back card. Baby Heartthrob and Surprise with accessories. Pony wear with the card. The accessories from yesterday are ridiculous, but I was most happy about the lion suit, ice princesses, and elephant suit, all with their pocket pals. YAY.

Wowza that’s a great find!! I am in love with the boxed playsets, some of the best condition I’ve seen in a loooong time. Your one lucky duckling. (Also the pics seem to be working now.)

To be clear, I'm never lucky. As in, it's uncanny how not lucky I have been. I was so freaked out today that I bought a lottery ticket.

What a haul! I'm so glad you were able to find those. Pony collecting is such a great way to keep yourself happy in a fun (if a bit expensive) way. Those colorful lil' equines are the world's best pick-me-up.

I did some cataloging and organizing today. I can't wait to start dressing the ponies. Winter is coming, so I'm happy I have some cold weather outfits. With the Vancouver rains, the raincoat outfit will be handy. All the clothes are in mint condition and almost all complete. The castle is complete except for the damsel hat and some of the stickers. It's in great shape. IMG_2817.JPG IMG_2816.JPG IMG_2819.JPG

Ahh! Dragon suit! My baby ponies lived in that suit growing up, I loved it so very much. Lol. Great find yet again, how’d you make out with your lottery ticket?
