I would never bring my Alice collection to the park or a trading event. I would be unable to enjoy myself for fear I might lose a pin or a bag. Alice is my keeper, they never leave my house, and they are the second thing I would grab if the smoke alarm went off (my cats being the first). I keep them in a cuboard by the back door so they are easy to get to in case of emergency. If the Donald offered me $20,000 for a pin, I would take it - but let's face - how many of us know Donald Trump?????
