the Pin meetup people were talking about a website called Pinpics.com. They
asked me if I had one, and I said no. So I decided to see what it was all
about. Basically, it's a website to showcase your pins and which ones you might
have up for trade. Awesome Right?
So I joined
a day or so ago. My name on it is DisneyFanatic101. I swear I joined
another time but couldn't really get the hang of it. So I just forgot about it.
But I do have some pins on there that I could find around my house. I know I
have a lot more .... somewhere.
One day I
decided to put them all on a quark board and hung them on my wall with those
velcro hangy things that say "We don't make a mess, or tear paint."
etc. Not in those exact words but you get the hang of it. (no pun intended). So
I had them on my wall for about 2 months before they fell off. Yes they do take
the paint off. My mom wasn't so happy about it.
those hangy things in college and never had a problem with them oh well. So now
I can't find most of my pins.
Yesterday night I went to a meetup from meetup.com. A Disney Pin Trading Meetup. It was a lot of fun. I traded for a few pins which were great. Most of the people were awesome in pin trading but there was one i thought was a stick in the mud but that's only my opinion. I will post the pictures of the pins at the end of this post. So anyway....
The meetup was at the mall that is not too far away from the good will store so I decided to check the good will store out. I didn't get to the good will store in the past few days so I was hoping I would find something of interest. I found two things:
A Disney MGM Studios Cutting Board/Hot Plate/Coaster.
Not exactly sure what they are called but I now have at least 3 of them. Not the same pattern but 3 with different Disney themes:
Oh. It also matches a mug I bought a while back.
The second thing I found was one of those Disney Babies that come with the blanket. I normally don't buy stuffed animals but a.) i thought it was real cute and b.) i knew you can only get it at Disney World.
I took like 20 pins that I didn't like that I didn't trade last year at the parks. Compared to other's stash of pins I looked like a newbie, even though I have been trading for 8 years although not a passionate as they are. I just find it a fun thing to do when you are at the parks. So anyway, I trade a bunch of pins and this is what I got back:
I Love Stitch and Figment, which are my two favorite characters. I also love Chip and Dale but not as much. I loved Figment ever since I was little and I loved stitch ever since I saw the movie.
So today I went to two of the good will stores and found
a few things. First I didn't see anything and then I noticed the bin of stuffed
animals. I thought they got rid of the stuffed animals because it wasn't where
I normally see it. So as I went through it, I asked one of the worker bee's if
they saw any Figment's come in and the lady said she did and helped me go
through the bin in case someone put it on the bottom...it was gone. We talked
as we went through the bin and I found out a.) she knew who figment was.
Normally a lot of people don't, and b.) she's a Disney fan. She also said she'd
keep an eye out for figment and hold on to him if she can. ooo. There's hope.
I revisited the isle's before I left and found this:
I never seen an Epcot Plate before. So I was thrilled. I
also found some thing non-disney which was something Mike Wolfe of American
Pickers would probably buy... lol. But since it's not Disney I'm not going to
bore you with it. lol.
I then exited and went to the next Good Will where I
found 2 Disney Items and a mug for my dad even though he has the same mug.
(Explanation is at the bottom).
First is my new bag...I love it.
I remembered the last time I saw a cool Disney bag I
passed up on and I still regret it to this day so I didn't pass this one up. I
totally totally love it. lol. The second Disney item is an Epcot cup from the
Germany Pavilion Biergerten Restaurant. It's a beer glass/cup. oooo.
Okay. Explanation why I bought the exact same mug my dad
already has 2 of. lol. The Mickey Bag was $7.99 and the Epcot cup was $0.99 and
the mug was $0.99. I had a $10.00 savings coming so I got everything for only
$0.70 because I bought the mug. I spent hours looking for something to buy so
that I could get the bag for less.
