Shopping Lists

This was the first weekend in a while where the weather was nice enough – and no deadlines looming – that I was able to do some casual antiquing.

I found a few horse-adjacent things, and some quilting supplies, but ended up buying nothing in the end. So it was mostly an exercise in exercise.

That was fine; the past few years I haven’t been able to bring everything to BreyerFest that I’ve wanted to, so this is actually helpful: it is looking like everything that can come, will!

The only thing I wish I had more of is bodies. I haven’t bought any significant body lots since last August, and the only ones I’ve seen at all when I have gone roaming have been Mestenos.

While I think Mestenos, in general, have a lot of untapped potential in terms of customizing, they are still not quite burning it up in body box sales.

Since I am having a bit of a quiet interlude here, here’s a picture of one of my new favorites, the LV Integrity. She is my newest/latest office buddy:

Honestly, this mold doesn’t seem to have any bad sides! And that shade of Bay can go on anything, please and thank you.

This is why the Roxy/Diana release for BreyerFest this year is the one I am most eager to see in person. If she’s half as pretty as the Integrity, it’s going to be no contest who the most popular girl at BreyerFest is going to be…

But to circle back to the Shagya Arabian mold, after buying one – and literally losing it in the shuffle in Kentucky – the 2017 Kaalee is one of the few items I’ll actively be on the hunt for in Kentucky this year, especially since the Open Show Grand Prize model ain’t gonna happen.

The Forever Saige Bisbee is another; the last time I was able to make it to my local toy stores, none of them had them in yet, so I’ll use that (and the potential for NPOD handpicking?) as another reason to put her on my list.

Then there’s the Gloss Bandera I’ve been putting off, too. That should be an easy one, also with potential for handpicking.

Other than that, I’m not sure what I want to hunt for, other than the same magical five-dollar Body Box Test Colors everyone else looks for. (Hey, I’ve seen it happen!)

Performance Horse variations? More of the Classic Duchess? That #3125 Deer Family set that always just eludes me? A Morgenglanz Gris Gris?

(Yes, really. But somewhere around original asking price: I am not that crazy.)

I’ll know it when I see it. I always do.

I love LV Integrity so much I DAH'ed him a Peter Stone Arab Yearling as a little sister. These molds look great together
