Looks like we can make it this year! We have missed going to this but mostly we have missed our DPF friends! I am going to try to offer up 10 pin grab bags on here with the pins being on card if anyone is interested in getting some traders on the cheap! Check the sales board for our deals. CAN'T WAIT to see you two! Barbara too! We LOVE you guys!
I'm excited! Im crossing fingers and toes I can go. As May is is my birthmonth this would be the best pressie to see you two

I like these trade events more than general ones around So Cal, because people seem more willing to help each other out to get pins each want, rather than comparing things by value alone. It's a lot less sharky of an environment.
Plus, I tend to hang out on here with y'all more than I do non-DPF pin people (I mean, I see them at releases and trade events, but it's not a daily thing.) So I'm more comfortable approaching people for trades.
It is not my intention to "hi"jack Doc's post but I wanted to say thank you to those that saw my posting about grab bags and purchased one (or more) from me. I ran out of pins! I am currently waiting on new arrivals and will re-post the grab bags this time including a choice of 10 open edition pins or 5 LE pins for $40 shipped domestic. (we will ship international but any cost over $5 we will charge the buyer) Thanks again!
grab bags are back in stock!
Hmm, I might just be able to make this one.
Just trying to make sure everyone that is coming has pins to trade both at the event and for lanyards.... ya know! It helps folks to be able to get pins at a lesser cost and enhances the pin trading fun if you have pins to trade with that didn't cost you retail! IMO. Our little way of contributing to those in need. Are you guys going to trade in the park this year?
On another note... can I have a Snow White button in remembrance of my mother? It is really the only pins I look to collect these days.

To answer your questions:
Definitely bring your traders, preferably in a book or binder for easy carrying.
Most people do not bring their whole collection, but some people wear a lanyard to showcase a few of their favorites.(If you go this route, I would recommend using locking pin backs so your pins don't come off and get lost!)
Consider wearing a button with your name and DPF username on it so other forum members will recognize you.(David makes these buttons for free and passes them out at the event, but you need to ask him ahead of time so he has time to make you one before he leaves for California... I am also happy to make you a button with your name on it; it just might not match all David's!)
Plan to stay awhile. There are a lot of pins to check out... and more importantly, friends to make!
I agree with everyone else who said that these parties are the best!
Everyone is very friendly and helpful. You don't have to worry about being judged. And newbies are more than welcome.SaveSave
Guys, can we stop bumping this thread up? You all are making me so impatient! XD
