    Were any members here able to to go this?

    If so, then I would be interested in hearing about the venue, the attendance, or type of pins people brought, and whether or not this is going to become a regular PTE.

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    I didn't go, as Anaheim is too far for me to go for a trade event on a weeknight. I hope whoever did wind up going had fun!

    I attended this event last night for about an hour. It was nicely done. The Artist/creator of Fan Flaire pins, and the hostess, was there with a couple of her books, trading.

    There was two tables set up for people to trade.

    I am happy to say, I was able to trade with Sara (the owner of Fan Flaire Pins) and a young lad (always enjoy trading with young'ins).

    I'd say during the hour I was there, 20 people came in and participated. I was able to recommend the Pin trading area by goofy sky school; My D Pins; and Pin Pics (for education purposes) to a young couple that were new to pin trading.

    The store closes on Sunday I believe. At this point they're not sure when they will have another pop-up store and where it will be located, but they are planning on having one.

    All-in-all, it was an hour well spent!

    I went as well! I got there around 8 pm with two of my friends. We're new to the whole pin trading event thing so it was a little intimidating but everyone was nice. At the time I went I'd say I saw about 5-6 groups of people trading. It was low key but it was a nice environment. There were a lot of good pins being traded! I just have to get better traders :)

    Ty for letting the members know you and your friends attended. I wonder if we saw each other?
    Glad you had a good time.

    Tessa, they have a ZPD baseball cap with your name on it. Thought of you immediately when I saw it.
