  • Olympic Pin trading - Heading to Vancouver - What can I expect?

    On Saturday after work I'm heading to Vancouver to take in a few days of the Winter Games.

    This will be my first Olympic pin trading, and first official pin trading since 1993 at the Canadian Scout Jamboree in Kananaskis, Alberta.

    So I got some questions...
    1. What can I expect?
    2. What is the pin trading etiquette?
    3. Are pins from past Olympics fair game as well? Is the focus only on Olympic pins?
    4. Any members here trade at an Olympic games? What were your experiences?

    Barbossa, I've not much insight to offer as despite owning a few 1984 Los Angeles Olympic pins, I was far too young to have taken part in trading.

    However, I'd like to see what pins you have. I liked the Mascot toys you got so much that I'm actually looking into ordering some pins online.

      I don't know much about Olympic Pin trading. But a bunch of us donated the pins we collected when the Olympics were here in Salt Lake, to my friend Heather. She is in Vancouver right now. She is trading and selling the pins in order to donate the money to cancer research, as her Grandmother recently passed away of cancer. So you may see her out there in pin trading land.
