    BTW, each table seats two, so you could always share with someone else (sis & I are sharing a table)

    Did you get the VIP table or the premium? We were thinking about the VIP (for another $25) but decided just to stick to the $50 table :) We are so glad to have a table and seats :)

    If anyone wants to upgrade to a VIP table for $50...
    And I can upgrade, I am willing to pitch in the extra $5.

    OK, here's what I got:

    [​IMG]

    The 3 horses are from the King Pins LE for LE trading board. I had two tickets because I bought the $50 table and @KILJOY667 gave me his that he got as an early entry guest. The Thor ACME and the LE100 Bambi ACME are from PinPics' LE for LE trading board. And now that I think about it, I already have a Thor ACME pin as part of the character key zap I got from @coblj003 . UGH, I knew I should have grabbed Luke Skywalker.

    The Wasabi and Hans Villaintine LEs were trades while waiting in line for the King Pins board.

    The Fox & the Hound BT was a trade I made with a guest. I kind of regret it as BTs aren't my "main" collection, but yet another side collection. I traded 3 pins for it, but I think the trader overvalued the BT and mine was undervalued. Ah well. :p

    I saw @Connies_Hobby , who was at the registration desk with my sister, @jadeites-lady. Also saw @this_and_that and, of course, @KILJOY667. Oh, and @bombardon3. Okay, another weird DPF member that can't be tagged.

    So, how did the event run? Sis & I showed up shortly before 5 pm, since she was signed up to help with registration from 5 pm to 7 pm (originally, she had signed up for trading boards from 6-7 pm, but then was moved to registration).

    Once you registered, you were given your event credentials (lanyard with name and information about what you had purchased, if you bought a table). Then you were given a wristband and you could enter the ballroom where the event was held. Once you entered, you had to find a table with the name of the type of table you bought (VIP or premium). I bought premium and found the first available premium table that was close to the front. There were six rows back, six rows across, so 36 total tables. I was in the fifth row, lol. I let @bombardon3 know we had arrived so he could come by and share my table since @jadeites-lady wouldn't be inside until 7 pm, which is when it was free admission for everyone. Plus, he was delivering these cute little green men plushies from Japan that I bought from him for sis (not pictured in my pin haul).

    It was pretty quiet as not a lot of premium/VIP people showed up until closer to 6 pm. First up for the King Pins Trading Boards were those with the pink tickets - that was VIP. Then red tickets - premium. Then green tickets - early entry. Then blue tickets - premium. Then purple tickets - VIP. And then we were done with that.

    After the first round for premium was done, I heard sis' name called for the PinPics trading board so I went with the lanyard to trade on the boards (I paid for the table with sis' PayPal account). I traded a basic LE for the LE100 Bambi. Then, I had to wait at the tables next to them so I could get the box. I confirmed with Lenny (owner of PinPics) that we would get a second round. @this_and_that was right after me and she got the LE100 Mickey & Minnie at the fireplace - a pin I was seriously considering over Bambi, but as I am trying to cut down on M&M pins, I figured Bambi would be a safe bet. Psst....It'll be up for sale in the marketplace section of our forum soon. :)

    I wandered back to the tables where people were lined up, trying to trade. I went through books, didn't see much for our collections, and turned most down, except for the Fox & the Hound BT...which as I said before, I kind of regret doing.

    King Pins also had a free raffle and I won on one of my six tickets (@KILJOY667 gave me two of his, but no luck with his). That's where I got the Cheshire emoji, Park Starz vinylmation, and the pen from :)

    All in all, it was a good event. I much prefer trading boards to trading with people, for the most part.

    Forgot to mention, someone had this super great pin set to trade. Unfortunately, I did not have the pins the trader was looking for :(
