    Yes, yes, as the name implies this is a thread based on what items you have found in your area and what prices too in order to help out your fellow Brony.

    For it, please list the area and the shop you saw it in along with the price.

    In Kingston upon Thames:
    The Entertainer had story set including Rainbow Dash and a collection of small items to make a cute story and a few of Rarity stashed at the back for £9. A Friendship Express was on offer for £32.99
    No Blind bags.
    Also the regular playful ponies were there for £4 or £5. Can't remember sorry.
    TK Maxx had the story sets of Cheerlie and of Pinkie Pie and Sweetie Belle for £6.99. No house sets.

    Staines (upon Thames):
    The Entertainer had blind bags at £2 each and the Pony Wedding Set for £32.99 along with a Pony Express.
    Tesco Home Plus had the playful ponies in for £3.87.

    In Parkgate Shopping outlet in Rotherham, in Asda Living I found regular size brushables of the Mane 6 except on sale for 3 pounds each. I ended up buying 4 as I hadn't got any except Twilight yet! Lol
    In a large Tesco in the Rotherham/Doncaster area I got the Royal Castle Friends set and the School Pals set for 13 pounds each, much cheaper than I'd seen online.

    Just had a newsletter from The Entertainer and the brushable ponies are currently 40% off at £3 a piece.

    Rainbow Dash brushie

    Not sure if this is in store as well but you can do a free click and collect service from the website to your local store.

    At only a pound more than a blind bag... Might be worth picking up a few :D

    Thanks for showing :D

    I've had a bit of a struggle looking for blind bags but so far in Sheffield I've found:

    ASDA (Hypermarket)
    Wave 3 blind bags £1.97 (Managed to snag myself Lyra, Pinkie and Applejack from there :) )
    Brushables £4
    The Bling Bag single tube for £5.67
    They also had a Rainbow Dash Glimmer wings but the price has completely left my head, I *think* it was just over a fiver.

    I've also found blind bags and brushables in Sainsburys but so far ASDA's come out the best for price and I'm actually surprised at how much cheaper it is than Amazon.

    Asda, Worcester (only just opened)
    Wave 3 blind bags £1.97; brushables £4. Judging by Alouette's post above, this seems to be Asda standard.

    For any Edinburgh Bronies, Toys Galore in Morningside has the sparkly blind bags (wave 4) at £1.99 and bridesmaid Ponies at £9.99.

    Sparkly Trixie is guarding my PC from Ursa Majors as I type.

    There were only about a dozen blind bags left in the box, and I don't remember very many brushables either. I'm going in again tomorrow, so when I get back from holiday I'll report back, if I remember. :p

    Probably should say that if anyone wants to get them from Asda Rotherham I already raided Rarity, Pinkie, Applejack, Rainbow, Trixie and Metallic Applejack. Hehe
