Now that you are almost an expert from reading the Introduction to Pin Trading, and you've learned how much fun it can be on your trip, there's a few more things to add on! A few Do's and a few Don'ts!
Do have fun
Don't take it too seriously
Do stop to look at pin boards
Don't worry if you miss out on a trade: You'll find it again later!
Do know the rules
Don't go crazy buying every pin you see at first
Do be careful buying pins online if you can't see the exact pins you are getting
Don't forget to ask to if there are pin boards. Some stores have hidden shields, hats, plush's and all kinds of other things with pins on them, but you have to ask!
Do have a way to carry around your pins and keep your traders separate from your keepers
Don't grab at a Cast Member's lanyard of pins or try to remove one!
Do remember your manners. A “May I see your pins, please” is a lot nicer than yanking the lanyard on someone's neck and choking them
Don't hand over a pin for a trade with the Mickey back off. OUCH!
Do have fun. That's the first, last, and most important rule!
Are you ready to go do some trading now? It's okay if you aren't near a park...next week I give tips and ideas on how to trade pins outside of the parks!
