Kevin...I'm too curious. (i.e. nosey) if you don't mind, why did you stop pin collecting/trading? I'm not a crazed pin collector, I have a nice collection, that I love, but I never got into getting the sets or all the Limited Editions and all that. I just buy ones that I love and mean something, resorts we've stayed at, events we've gone too (Flower and Garden ones, party ones, ect...) if you have that "collector gene" though, pins are great because they don't take up much room. I say this because I am a re-formed crazed teddy bear collector and they took up ALOT of room. I have them all mostly stored now, but I can't quite bear (no pun intended!) to get rid of them. So, I'm also wondering if you still have your collection? Or were able to part with it?
