    Hi everybody!

    Havent been trading in a while and when I did about a month ago it looks like I got scammed. Not a lot of value pins but still feels really bad.

    Anyway I need to restore my faith in trading and I need a little cheering up. I need pin mail in my mailbox again.

    Since pinpics is acting up I will post pics of all my traders. Please look thought them and see if you find anything you like.

    Im Snoffsan on pinpics if it happens to work when you try.
    If not I collect:

    (mainly Minnie in costumes, Minnie and Mickey love themed pins and Vintage Minnie)
    Fantasy PODMs

    Twin themed pins

    especially countdown to Christmas pins. (One of those themes that you didnt know you collected until you start pulling them out and see all the ones you have in one place and realise that yep you are collecting those LOL)

    I will look at just trader pins that dont fit my collections as well if I happen to have one of your grails and you cant live without it :)

    Oh and I should tell those who dont already know that I do live in Sweden so multiple pin trades is better because shipping wont feel so bad. I also do have a few american friends who are kind enough to accapt mail for me if you really really want to do a trade but cant ship to Sweden.

    Without further ado, here are my traders:

    I hop this works. I made a link to an album with all pics rather than put them here one by one.

    Pin traders

    EDIT* My kids traders are in there too and the last pic is their park traders. I have not gone through them after the last trip so there will more likely than not be some scrappers there. A fair warning. Will of course look closely if you happen to be interrested in any of them.

    Thanks. I hate to think bad things about people so I will just wait some more and hope that the package arrives but I dont have any high hopes by now.

    I cant really complain to the admins of the trading group on FB or anything either because when I asked them about it they said they didnt recieve my package either. But my tracking shows it was delivered. I still hope everything will turn out ok.

    And lesson learned. Dont trade on Facebook. Only on DPF, where all the nice people are. This is where I started about 6 years ago and I will just keep trading here!

    You can PM the admins on Facebook and let them know the situation. Esp if you're package is marked as delivered. Just come at it from an "I'm new at this and need advice angle."

    If it's suspicious, people should know.

    Sorry to read this. I was scammed on Faceback as well. That was a few years ago and I have never traded on there again. I did find a few people to buy pins from but I won't trade.

    Hey there Elin! *hugs*
    I’m interested in your 101 Dalmatians PODM. I highly doubt I have anything you want, but feel free to check my COLLECTION on Pinpics. Obviously, I’m willing to trade more than 1 pin.

    Omg! There is quite a lot of pins from my wants and I also live in Europe! Are you only interested in trades or would it be ok to buy the pins too?

    Also so sorry to hear about your misfortune, that's really weird about the delivery status... Maybe you could contact post? :(
