I am starting to collect Halloween pins as a theme. I recently traded for a few pins to start me off. I am now in pursuit of one of my Holy Grails, The Halloween Cruise pin. I know it is a great pin. So I thought I would try this out. We usually post what our Holy Grails are but we do not post what we are willing to give for it. I am hoping that this will help some of us get some of our Holy Grails. So I am looking for the Halloween Cruise Pin and I am offering A Champion Pin Trader(Spring). I hope this works! If not back to the drawing board. :D

I have a brand new holy grail -- the Artistry of the Earth Spinner pin. That has got to be one of the prettiest pins I've ever seen! I'll have to go check my traders and edit the post to see what I could offer -- but this may just be one of those I want for a long time, or have to go to the e-place to buy.

My new holy grail, barely a week old, is the Wilderness Lodge Facade, #633.

I have several of the recent LEs, including the First Robotics, DLR Spring 2001, DLR Earth Day #1, April Fuels.

I just wonder if there is even anyone out there who has one to trade?

FYI to Cherry: I love the Artistry of the Earth spinner too. I checked the e*** site, there are many available for bid or purchase. Unfortunately the price range seems to be just _above_ a first-born child _and_ a fully-loaded corvette. :eek:

I would love to have the WDW Plane Crazy filmstrip to complete my set, and I would also like to get a jail scene.

My best trader is the DL Pin Trader Pin. I would trade it for either of my big wants or I could try to track down what you may want if you have either to trade.


Date Posted: 04-26-01
My Grails would have to be:

HM Dead End
Champion Trader Spring

What do I have to offer - guess it would be what do you want? If I dont have it I will try and get it.

Michelle from Missouri
Just wanted you all to know, since we've moved, and we clearly have more space here in our new home, I would like to expand my holy grail list.

1. Wilderness Lodge Facade, #633
2. Any old Disney Villas (pre-Institute)
3. Toga Minnie, #4311

By the Way . . .
I was actually reading this thread early this morning, when my PC and I were sucked into the vortex created by the DIS board move. sniffle, sniffle It was a near thing, we had to hold on real tight, do a cold boot and find our way here to this lovely new home. :)
My Holy Grails are The Jail Scene for which I can offer the Continuing the Tradition pin.
My # 2 Holy Grail is the MSEP Spinner for which I can offer the LE 1000 egg from WDW - either AK, DTD, or MGM.

Update July 1
I did get the MSEP Spinner and some others in trade for the CTT pin.
I am now looking for a My First Pooh and I have the LE 1000 WDW eggs to trade ( DTD or MGM ). I have other good traders, too if anyone wants to take a look .
Thanks for looking!

I got mine (Artistry of the Earth spinner) within a week or so of the above post, and I've really enjoyed it.
I have been able to trade for the Wilderness Lodge Facade pin, thanks to JamesD. :D

I also have traded for the Toga Minnie, thanks to Tennisnut. :D

I am still on the lookout for any Disney Villas pin from 1994 or earlier (before they became Villas at the Institute). I don't know if any pin like this even exists, but it's important to me to commemorate a family event.

And, of course, I am now seeking my newest holy grail:

<font color=blue>#21 The 1999 Round Food & Wine Festival.</font> :)

I would be happy to do a two-for-one trade for this pin.
Here's mine: Going down, fortunately!

Pin 2176: CM Animal Kingdom Rhino Hat Pin (yellow)
Pin 4520: Wonders of the Wild Opening Crew November 15, 1999
Pin 4938: AK Pin Club Rhino (**********)

What do I have to offer?:
Discovery River Boats (with slight scratch on a blue area, though)
Backstage Safari
AK Suntrust, AK 3rd Anniversary, several LEs


I am looking for Cross U Spring Tigger. I have a couple of older Cross U Easter pins that I woul d trade one of them for the Tigger. Email me at MdStrwbery@aol.com and see if we can make a trade. Have alot of othe CM pins also.
I actually did manage to get mine but of course have to have a new one...

The Dinesy Villian event Chernabog #2883

I have a few good ones to trade for this, but don't hold out to much hope.
