Ponyville Antiques

 

 

A little corner shop that's been there for many years, which usually goes unnoticed by passer-by ponies, is a simple, little locale squished in-between two buildings in a street adjacent to Mane Street. An old sign announcing the store with a hoof-painted treasure chest and scroll is the only thing that ponies passing through the main road may notice, which hangs above the ancient door to the inside. A pair of windows flank the door and tend to have a pair of curtains covering their upper half, allowing sunlight to enter just slightly. The most interesting thing about the antique shop, that not many know about, is that it hosts a group of breezies within its walls, who seem to be the only inhabitants after the former owner's passing.

Exterior

The storefront is very discreet and can easily pass for a back entrance, if not for the sign announcing the store, which features a treasure chest and a rolled up scroll, as well as Ponyville Antiques. Two large windows flank the doorway, often seen with a pair of curtains covering their upper half, allowing sunlight to barely enter. The windowsills are lined by very discreet flowerbeds, though the flowers themselves appear vibrant in color and size, thanks to the inhabitants of the locale. Thin vines climb up the wall, exhibiting smaller but equally beautiful flowers that greatly contrast with the old appeareance of the shop.

 

Interior

Once a pony enters the store, they may notice an unusual scent: That of flower perfume and book pages. The counter, shelves, floor and wallpaper all look extremely ancient; certainly much more dated than anything else in Ponyville's hub. Sunlight doesn't seem to enter too much, thanks to the curtains, though it provides the interior with a warm and tranquil color.

The shelves that line the walls are wooden and filled with different trinkets, figurines and artifacts of distinct origins, and a large rug covers the floor, though it hosts several pieces of furniture with noticeable age. Some of the tea tables and drawers host make-shift houses made out of teapots, music boxes and a few dollhouses from different corners of the world. The countertop hosts another dollhouse, which seems to be an original hoofcrafted piece from Trottingham. Behind it, a pile of books and scrolls sits orderly, next to the old cashier box.

Lastly, one would also realize the place is unusually covered in flowers, as vibrant, colorful and large as the ones on the outside. The shelves, some of the furniture and walls are covered in thing, green flower-bearing vines, once again thanks to the work of the breezies that inhabit the place.
