I always had a thought or two on buying one or two pins when I go, But I always forget to check them out. It seems like a lot of fun though!

I've spotted the Disneyland storybookland lighthouse pin all over WDW (parks, resorts and DTD) and every time I've seen it I've thought it was the lighthouse at Yacht/Beach Club but with Boardwalk colors. I'd much rather see the Disneyland villain coffin set. :hm_ghost:

I ended up making an entire Paris lanyard when I went over. Their pins are cheaper than ours- starting at roughly $5 USD compared to $7 or $8 at WDW. To fill a lanyard cost me maybe $60 USD.

I've collected Scrooge stuff for years, including pins. But my favorite pin is probably from the Ocala Information Center that used ti be on I-75 (remember that?). We ALWAYS stopped there, as my parents are in Crystal River and that was our exit when coming from Virginia, or, now, Georgia.

But I don't follow very faithfully anymore. In fact, I've been toying with selling off the entire collection...especially if the economy stays this way!

I wonder if we will start seeing more and more collectibles come on the market with the economy staying in it's current state...

Probably! I've also got a set of Simpson's things I want to sell off (and make more shelf room, really) and I've got 7 pinball machines, 4 of which are probably Too Many. Those need to find loving homes, too!

I know we saw some effects early on, with people selling vehicles, property etc. Down here the telling sign is when people cut and harvest their trees. Lots of empty land now, with the pine trees being harvested for wood pulp and such. Georgia used to have the largest % of row crops of any state, due to pines...not sure if that still holds true...

You know things are bad when your financial adviser says to invest in rare coins!

7 full-sized pinball machines?! :shock: That is a lot! Those definitely could bring in some money though...
That's sad to see trees cut down like that. We have lost many of our trees in tornadoes over the last few years and are really missing the shade and beauty they provided :( One of our neighbor's trees fell about a month ago with the high winds and is still lying on the property line. It leans a little more over toward our house with every heavy wet snow we have. Hopefully whoever she has clean it up also takes care of all those teeny, tiny little sticks :shock: :!:
Rare coins hmmm? I wonder if my Eisenhower silver dollars count? They certainly act at the bank like they've never heard of the coin :roll:

Pinballs aren't TOO bad...there was a discussion thread over at one of the Pinball Forums about how many people had, and so forth: one guy's father-in-law collect antique 18 wheel rigs! Now THAT takes some space. I'm pretty sure they were stored outside, but just imagine having a garage/shed/basement/enclave large enough to store them all inside!!! :lol:

Semi truck collectors? That is a new one by me! :shock: Our friends have a collection of trucks, but they are the toy variety, about 12" - 14" in length and lined up around the ledge at the top of their basement
