My mystery lot of ten pins arrived today!

And they're all hidden Mickey pins! )

I finished the pin case today! I bought sheet protectors yesterday and then felt today and cut the felt while at the family's garage sale, then glued them in when I got home.

And for more pictures. Hee... )

Well, today when I was in Long's Drugs picking up a card for my aunt's birthday, I noticed a binder that was zip-up and came with a shoulder strap! But I didn't really like the front, and it was $14, so I was all 'no way!' and put it back. Good thing too.

My uncle and I were talking after dinner and before cake/presents about pins, and he mentioned that he had brought over some pins to sell (though they weren't Disney). Well, while we were looking through the garage sale stuff in the garage for them, I found a binder one of my cousins had put out to sell. It was a zip-up one, and would do great! So I just snagged it and put it with my stuff to go home. (Hey, anything taken from family before the sale starts is free!)

So I get home and I'm thinking, "Cool! Now I just need the shoulder strap and the inserts." And as I'm puttering about my room, I hit a bag I got for free from Grand Sierra in Reno... Well, it was a free bag so the quality wasn't that good. One day as I was getting out of the car with it over my shoulder the fabric holding the plastic loops that the strap was hooked to broke. That meant I could no longer use the strap with it, but the strap was still in good condition! So now I have a free extra strap for it!

See my handiwork? )

So I was able to cobble together something satisfactory for free compared to $14 at the store. Whoo!

Also when we were talking, my uncle told me about a pin seller that's always in the same spot at this one flea market who sells many kinds of pins, including Disney. However, I don't think I'll be able to get to one until I come back for Christmas. *sad*

And Em? My family's garage sale is at my grandma's this Friday and Saturday if you or anyone in your family wants to browse through it.

Posting this now because it was late when I got home Thursday night, and I worked all yesterday and I was lazy today, but now it's 11:49 and I should be sleeping for tomorrow's company picnic, but I want to post this.

Disneyland was fun! (Even though [livejournal.com profile] niteflite walked my feet off, they only stopped hurting today, and the skin on the backs of my feet are still healing from where I rubbed the top layer off by bringing shoes that were really too new still.) We now have lots of good memories and good stories to tell, and we went on all the rides we wanted to and then some, and saw many good shows.

Also, I'm now hooked on pin trading! )

And there are pics from the trip, though the ones on my camera are mostly the last day (since I forgot to take my camera to the park the first two days--whoops!). However, I haven't uploaded those pics yet, so they'll have to wait for another post.
