So I have been out of the trading game four about 4 years… Which makes my pins quite trade-able, but I have been keeping a lookout for other traders (I used to trade at Little Green Men and Westward Ho) and I haven’t seen a single setup anywhere. I would love to bring my books up and spend the day trading, but I don’t want to lug around all the books if no one is there to trade with. I will be up there Sunday 9/16. Is there anywhere people still trade? I read people still use Westward Ho, and Pin Traders in Downtown Disney, is this true? I try to avoid scrappers so I usually don’t trade with cast members.
If you are looking to trade with guests, your best bet is definitely in front of Westward Ho. I’ve seen alot of collectors set up in front and on benches nearby with their books and binders. I don’t go to downtown Disney so I don’t know about that.
I will add though that the time i see all the traders is traditionally on Thursdays when new pins release. There is usually one person there every time I go (on various days of the week) but I think to a certain extent it is random (or at the very least varies based on the day, month, weather etc.)
I hope they are there when you are looking to go. They all have very impressive collections.
I appreciate it! I think I’m just going to take one book and try my luck. My wife and I are both pass holders so I guess if no one else is there, no big deal. Maybe people will want to see some of mine! I miss the good old days when there would be 50 other traders on the weekend haha
If anyone is interested in coming to meet up at DLR, I will be out in front of Westward Ho periodically throughout the day this Sunday 9/16!
