The Windy City Pin Traders received an invitation from DTD store to attend their pin trading sessions over 3 different weekends. It looks like they've set up places where people can do pin trading. It should be open to everyone interesting in doing pin and vinylmation trading.
The dates are:
Saturday, July 14
Saturday, July 21
Saturday, July 28
from 11 am to 4 pm. All the rules and etiquette for pin trading at a Disney park will apply here as well (i.e. you can't trade other merchandise, and you can't buy and sell). The cast members are also expected to be trading either off their cast lanyards or from their own private trading collection.
I will be attending the pin trading on July 14 and 28. The WCPT has their own pin trading at the Downers Grove Fuddruckers on July 21, so most of us will probably not make it to the DTD on that day, unless we end rather early on that day.
If you plan on being there, either to trade or just to look around, do let me know so that I can look out for you. It will be nice to meet someone else from this forum (other than Brad).
