    Hi everyone! Happy New Year! With the new/updated/restated auction rules posted, I thought I would kick off the year with my First Ever Auction! I’m excited to see if running one is as much fun as watching one!

    Of course the key to a good Auction is a good pin and I believe I have not just a good pin, but a GREAT one - the Rapunzel from ACME/HotArt’s Dancing Princess series. You can see how beautiful she is in the pictures below. And big too! She measures about 3 inches tall. There are only 300 of her and according to PinPics there are 103 people wanting her and only 18 trading her! So if you are one of those 103, here’s your chance!

    And it will be very easy to bid on her as I have a LOT of wants on PinPics under AJK. (Plus I am interested in Beloved Tales and PTDs, neither of which I have marked as wants.) Here are some other thoughts to help guide you:

    Especially Want:
    - WDI Storybooks. Working on this set right now.
    - Love is Daring chaser from LIAA event. STILL kicking myself didn’t get this last pin at the event.
    - Villains. Especially Maleficent
    - Nightmare Before Christmas. Especially if they are parts of sets I haven’t finished. But really anything nice.
    - Alice in Wonderland. Especially anything that’s a bit different.
    - Moana. Just starting this one so need them all.
    - Park rides and attractions. Especially WDW first and then DL.

    Prefer not:
    - Hidden Mickeys. Unless they are one of my grails.
    - Princesses. Unless they are one of my wants.

    Please don’t:
    - Fantasy
    - Scrappers
    - Fakes

    As for the other details, this auction will close on Sunday, January 7th, at 9:00 PM EASTERN TIME.

    And with that, I wish everyone Good Luck, and let the bidding begin!

    Let's get this auction started! I don't have any chasers left from LIAA, but I do have an event pin you may be able to use to trade for it. So I'll bid:

    Pin 123504 WDW – Love is an Adventure 2017 – Love is for all Seasons Box Set - Spring

    Purplemands got us off to a quick start, but then we slowed a bit. Perhaps everyone was busy with New Year Day recuperation? Maybe some Snow White viewing/essay writing? In any case, today's a great day for a bid! :)

    Thank you for the AWESOME second bid! It sits nicely at the crossroads of my Tink collection and my sets interest.

    Thank you for the FANTASTIC 3rd bid! This would actually be the very first pin in my new Moana collection.

    So now the tricky part - Gotta create a Leader Board. This is already harder than I thought it would be! Thanks to all for the great bids so far, but I think I will go with the following for now:

    1. timeerkat - #119030 -DSSH Pua Voyager Sundae GWP
    2. CCofRR14 - #55973 - WDI Tinker Bell ID badge
    3. Purplemandms - #123504 - WDW – LIAA Love is for all Seasons Box Set - Spring

    Still a long way until Sunday and plenty of time for more excitement!

    How about these 3 villains pins from Alice in Wonder Land
    43904 D Magazine Queen of Hearts
    43903 Disneyland Calendar Queen of Hearts
    103396 Halloween Queen of Hearts

    WOW! Two more TERRIFIC bids overnight.
    These are great! I love NBC and getting multiple pins is definitely exciting. Thank you!

    Oooh...Combining my Alice and villains themes, plus multiples! Only downside is I now feel I need to collect all the D Magazines and Calendars. Or maybe that's an upside? :) Thank you!

    The new rules say my Leader Board has to be limited to my top three. This was a tough decision, but after much deliberation, the low LE Tink edges out the fantastic NBC set and for now going with:

    1. timeerkat - #119030 -DSSH Pua Voyager Sundae GWP
    2. justharry - #43904 D Magazine Queen of Hearts, #43903 Disneyland Calendar Queen of Hearts, #103396 Halloween Queen of Hearts
    3. CCofRR14 - #55973 - WDI Tinker Bell ID badge

    We're about half way to the finish line! Plenty of time for more excitement.

    Thank you for the PHENOMENAL bid! The Pixar pins in particular are a set that I am currently excited about and have some focus on. I took a long time thinking about your bid and it also made me rethink the other bids quite a bit, considering moving them around a bit. I went back and forth a bit in my mind but, in the end, I decided to leave the Leader Board as is.

    Thank you for the INCREDIBLE bid! I'm sorry to report that set was one of those where I thought "Not sure I want these or not, but I'll list them and decide later." I ultimately decided I didn't care for them. I need to take them off my wants list. Sorry for leading you astray! I very much appreciate your bid, but the Leader Board stands

    Thank you for the WONDERFUL bid! LE 100! That's awesome. And I would be a fool not to put it on top of my list. And yet, it doesn't thrill me at this time compared to the others (I tend to lean more towards the animated characters than the live action). So as crazy as it may be, I am going to leave my Leader Board as is.

    On a side note, I am worried that my past few posts may be sending the wrong message so let me emphatically say that, the current Leader Board is NOT set in stone! ;) There are plenty of pins and pin combinations that could move to the top. And there's the rest of the weekend to try! :D
