Monday at AK, I decided to go ahead a join the wacky group know as Pin Traders. Now, I have never bought a pin, but have been given so many that I had to buy a lanyard this trip to put them all on. I had several of the same pin from the Wonder cruise I just got off of the day before, so I take an extra and hope to make a trade before we leave the park and head for home. The first CM I go up to (I wish I could remember his name!) is very kind and tells me the rules for trading. After not finding anything I like, DD and I need to leave to catch our flight back home. As we were walking up to the entrance, I noticed a CM who had lots of pins on. He was talking to a couple so I just stood there looking at his laynard. He noticed me and said if I wanted to make a trade I had to hurry as he was leaving with the couple. It was then I noticed he had a DVC tag on the end of his lanyard. DD saw that he had a WL pin and pointed it out to me. I said, OH I want to trade for that one, WL is my home resort. He says You're a member? And I tell him, with the couple standing there listening, that DH and I bought in and loved it so much that we ended up buying more points last year. That it was one of the best things we had ever done ( it is). And that we had just gotten back from the Disney Wonder cruise where all our table mates were cruising on points. ( And it was not the DVC member cruise!) He smiled and looked at the couple and said... I swear this was not staged... ! I told the couple that I really was pleased with DVC. And I walked away with a WL pin How cool is that for my first trade! I hope he made a sale that day He was a nice guy... he could have just told he he didn't have time. But instead I left with a great memory and pin!
