Get Ready for "Trade til You Fade 2010"

Next month's  schedule is not much different from other CJDPT overniters- the plan we have used seems to work- so we’re sticking with it.
If you are a first-timer, we suggest you bring all your “traders.”  You will be amazed at the wonderful pins for trade and you’ll be wishing you had all brought all your pins!  We ask that you bring munchies or healthy snacks to share and some bottled drinks for the coolers.  Bring money for lunch and dinner- we insist you take a break to eat.  There are many local places that deliver and there is a Ruby Tuesdays right across the street with a take-out window (how convenient.)  If you would like to take a break from trading on Saturday evening, bring a new wrapped Disney item ($15 to $20) that would make a great grab bag gift and join in the fun when we play our “Let’s Make a Steal” gift swap game.  It continues to be lots of fun!  Finally, bring your sense of humor and love of Disney.  We are looking forward to hosting another great weekend of pin trading, friendship and fun!
We will be posting a tentative schedule very soon so check back often!!!

Hello Everyone!
Sheila and I would like to take this opportunity to personally THANK each and every one of the 117 pin traders that attended our "little" event this weekend!!!!

We consider all of you part of our "pin family" and are honored to call you friends. It is because of all of you that the CJDPT will be celebrating its 5 year anniversary in 2008 and we look forward to seeing you all again April 11-13 2008 for "Trade til You Fade-'08!!

We promise to continue to do our best to give you the kind of pin meets you have come to expect from the CJDPT!!

We encourage any of you out there who have never attended one of our events to consider it for next year, as you can see in the other post here people truly had a "magical" time. It is always magical for Sheila and I, Thank You All...

With traders from as far away as California, Florida, Ohio, Canada and everywhere in between these meets take on an energy all there own.

And finally a BIG THANK YOU to Janis and David Lavender. You are great and we would not want to continue this ride without you both!!!
