Pin Trading For Pixie Dust | Nightmare Before Christmas “Tall, Dark, and Gruesome” Pin

We’re taking Disney Pin Trading to the next level.  We want to trade a Disney Pin for a Disney Vacation for a deserving family, and we need your help to do it!

Now, we don’t expect to achieve this all at once.  It will take a series of trades to “trade up” to our goal.  Every journey begins with a single step, and this will be the first step on this journey.

The pin I’ve chosen to start this project is one from my own collection.  I chose this particular pin because it’s the only pin in my collection that I’ve actually traded for.

Our kids love pin trading, but Lisa and I are pretty much pin collectors and typically don’t trade.  Last summer, while attending Disney Social Media Moms “On the Road” conference in Philadelphia, we were all asked to participate in a pin trading session where we were given pins and told to trade them with someone we didn’t know.

I was given a pretty sweet pin: A limited edition SpectroMagic pin that included a piece of fabric from the actual parade.  Many people in my position would have sat quietly in their seat and kept it for themselves, but I felt that would go against the spirit of the exercise.

So I traded my pin for this one:


Nightmare Before Christmas Disney Trading Pin: Tall, Dark and Gruesome

I was pleased with the trade.  The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favorite movies.  Jack Skellington is one of my favorite characters.

And the words “Tall, Dark And Gruesome” glow in the dark!

How cool is that?!?!

Now, I’m offering this pin up for trade to work toward a very worthy cause.

Who wants to be the first to trade with us and help us on our road to spreading some Pixie Dust and helping a family get to experience a Disney Vacation?

We’d prefer Disney items since most visitors to our site are Disney fans.  That being said, we wouldn’t pass up the chance to trade up simply because it wasn’t a Disney item.

If you don’t feel you have anything to trade but would like to donate an item or some money to help out, we would welcome that as well!

I think this is going to be amazing!  I can’t wait to see what the first trade will be!!
