PCC 4.0 Pin Trading Meet

I'm looking to set up a pin trading meet while we're on board for 4.0. There are never enough pin trading opportunities on board, and rarely a good time for collectors to meet up to find that last pin to complete your collection. Whether you are a "serious" collector or have only a few pins trading is always fun.

I'm thinking of putting together some lanyards, or parts of a book just for the younger traders, so that they can have equally as much fun. Also thinking of a pin scavenger hunt...still working on that idea.

I'm looking to see how many people would be interested in this type of activity and get some numbers for planning purposes, how much I should be planning trading specifically for the kids, etc... Come join the pin trading excitement and fun!

Current Participants:
Tink576
Jessrose
Dsnydreamer
Loudisneyfan + two 13 yr old boys
Silverfox97 + dd5
Scott5150 + dc 9 and 12
Phred52

If someone wants to arrange a pin trading meet I would be happy to try to arrange a venue or at least get it on the schedule.

Let me know.

This is a great idea! I think having a kids element to it would be cool as well!

I'm thinking of creating some "kid" lanyards, or a kid's book for trading... I'll have to brainstorm ideas. Typically, before downtown trading was stopped at DTD I had a couple of pages within my books of pins that were available to trade with the younger kids to get them in on the action in which I wasn't worried about what pins I got back. I have such memories of pin trading as a little kid, and I'm thankful for the strangers who made those memories for me. I can't wait to get this organized!

So excited to start planning this...so I guess the big thing is to get an idea of the number of people who would be seriously interested in participating. I will definitely have pins and lanyards for the kids in action with similar rules as trading with cast members so that they can have no pressure trades as well!

Sure we'll take newbies! Every pin trader had to be a newbie at one time or another. We can open the, non-cast member but same rules lanyards (I really need to come up with a better name for that), for newbies as well I'm thankful for the many strangers that took me in under their wing when I was starting and whom I've traded with over the years. I'm not a crazy pin trader who's selling online and trading online and all that crazyness. I've only ever traded at the parks/on the cruise and at the pin stations at Epcot then DTD. Bring your "traders", whatever pins you may be willing to trade, and we'll share all the secrets and tips to help get you on your way. For example: at guest services at all the resorts AND parks, if you go in and ask for the pin book they'll bring out a binder that most of the trading public is unaware of and you can often find gems in there.
