    Questions:
    Did any lanyard pins 'sell/trade out'?
    I am just wondering how fast any of them were traded.

    How long were the lanyard trading lines? Did the lines move fast?

    Did the stitch 5 pin sets sell out?

    So, I really like the 4 Stitch karate pins. Am I reading right that some of those ONLY appear in that frame?? Figures...

    The five pins stitch set sold out. The lanyard pins did not.

    When I left for dinner, 3000 lanyard traders had been sold. Some people coming back today kept their lanyard traders for today (from yesterday).

    There are only two Karate stitch pins that were on lanyards yesterday.

    That's what it looked to me. The two I saw in the frame are mirror images of the ones on the lanyards

    As starry said, none of them sold out but supposedly, they’ll be releasing new ones today. I still have 3 leftover from yesterday but will be getting another set of 20 to fill presales. Seems like there will be less people today so hopefully the trading lines will remain short and easy to get through.

    I'm glad it wasn't anything really serious!

    I made some good trades! Here is my haul from yesterday:

    [​IMG]

    Wound up with two patriotic Judys! XD Plus the second Zootopia cluster I needed; new Hawkeye, Rescue Rangers, and Lion King pins for those collections; and Robin Hood, Lilo and Stitch, and Sleeping Beauty traders. The ten pins in baggies on the right were the lanyard pins I traded for.

    I think my favorite pin of the lot is the TEENY TINY Timon! :D

    ETA: Got these, too.

    Am I reading that right? "The West Coast PinFather" was there?? That's way cool if that is the Disneypins99 I think it is.

    Yuo, he was there. He's at most of the pin events. He isn't active on DPF anymore though :(

    That's way cool. I hope he is doing good. Tell him Babytrader is big now and still going to find his storage full of pins and his Jewish gold stash. Lol.
