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!

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!

I don't do pin trading, but my cruise roommate does and would love this.
