Getting Back into PIn Collecting.

edited November 2018 in Pinny Arcade
Background: When I was able to attend PAX I was always part of the button exchange (IMHO the spiritual go before thingie to pinny arcade). When pinny arcade was announced I made sure to get as many pins as possible. Unfortunately a little over a year ago my house burned down taking my pins with it. I was quite depressed. It is crazy how attached one gets to "stuff". It was the little things like the loss of my pin collection that really hit me hard. I mentioned it to some friends and they offered to send me pins (this is not a solicitation of pins). I wanted MY pins.

Last night while cleaning out the trunk of my car I found my trade stock of pins. I will admit I got a bit misty eyed. Unfortunately I only have a few duplicates but I am excited to get back into the game.
