First, Can I carry trading style pins on a airplane? I love taking my HRC bear on vacation if im going to a HRC. I take a picture of the bear outside of each one and send it to my sisters back home (it makes them happy LOL). Last time I went I had no pins. Can I take my bear in my carry on with the pins on him? There all hard rock and disney. ALso Do the waitstaff at HRC still do pin trades? I know last time a waitress offered to sell me one of hers (st. Pats day pin) for $10. If they do trading Im thinking of picking up a few pins to trade off.
