    Hmm...I might come out to it. I don't think I have any plans that weekend.

    The past few MyD trade events I've gone to, I really didn't do much trading. I know this sounds kind of bad, but I get a general feeling of people being more "judgey" of people's traders and pin book values at those events.

    I plan to make it to this one! Never been to a My D Pins event, but wanted to for a long time.

    If I don't make any trades - Oh well. I just want to check it out and see some friends.

    May I ask what day the rest of you are planning to go? I'd like to see as many DPFers as possible!

    The feeling isn't unwarranted. One event I went to was fantastic, the Saturday I met lots of people (including Mark/AvatarAng), and did lots of good trading! The second day I didn't do nearly as well, but oh well, was something different than the parks. The next time they had an event and I went and I got zero trades! That was frustrating.
    I'm going to give this one a shot though! I may go both days.

    I plan on going Sunday at 11am. I will wear Docfish's button. I don't do a lot of trading generally but I like the event. As for the store itself:

    I am happy to do pickups for pins or "scout out" pins..I can report if I see a HTF pin you have been looking for, or if you need that one last puzzle piece, or need an LE you regretted not getting awhile back. Be aware nothing is "at cost" here hehe. LMK if you are interested.

    I'll be going with some friends. It'll be our first time and I don't have many traders so I'll just be going for the experience or to scout for stuff to buy lol :)

    Edit: Forgot to mention we're going on Saturday! We might go on Sunday too depending on how Saturday goes.

    My friends and I went both today and yesterday. Unfortunately, we didn't get to trade anything on Saturday but we did buy a lot of pins at a good price. I saw a few people on Instagram saying it was difficult for them to trade, too. People were a lot friendlier today and we managed some good trades!

    Sooo... WOW.
    I did amazingly at this event, like WAY better than I could have imagined. I knocked 33 pins off my wants list!!

    Here's the ones that weren't on my wants list, but everything here is a keeper except for Angus

    I am still in awe of just how well I did today!

    Congrats on that pin haul!

    I was out in the sun all day yesterday so I needed a day not out in the heat today, so I wound up not going.

    Yay! I was going to guess this was you, or another girl I had who collected Lady and the Tramp. My bf was really happy we finally got Joanna!
