Hey Everyone!

A pin bag went missing at some point during Swap til You Drop.

Can you all please check through your stuff and see if you perhaps picked it up by mistake, we all know how all of our bags look the same.  It has a goofy plush on the side and it is 10th anniversary pin bag with about 200-350 hidden mickey pins.

Please send me an e-mail if you happen across this bag !!

I know it will turn up.....john@cjdpt.com
