Are you a pin economist? I have learned that pins are like money at these games, so here are a few tips I have learned about trading my cheer gear pins thus far.
Best lesson: merchandise your pins! People show my pins more love when I display them on my black remix hoodie! My pins are front and center, and highly visible to the eyes of oncoming pin-economists. (Also being an American, I get less heckled in the streets of Van when my colours are neutral!)
Pin-Economists come in all forms and the savviest appear sweet and wonderful. Now this is important to note, I did not trade any pins for cup of tea and lovely afternoon. That's all I'm saying.
Now as lovely as this woman is, don't let her fool you, she knows what she wants in life, and it's your pins at a cheap barter. As you can see I helped to decorate her lovely remix hoodie. Still no cup o' tea. (She already had the Olympics Rings pin and it is not made by lululemon).
I am a sucker for kids, and they see me coming every time. These bad boys took me for 5 cheer gear pins, and I had no return on investment on this one. They walked with my pins, I walked away with an emptied travel pooch that had been full of treasures to trade.
Reporters have the BEST pins, they just don't broadcast it. Rumor on the street is they love the restaurants in Gastown.
The "Eh!" pin has been the most coveted of all my pins!
Tiffany and I are battling it out to see who gets the best pins, any tips for us?
You don't have to be in Vancouver to trade these bad boys in style!
