I'm unexpectedly in the market to buy my first pin, and I have pinged a few folks on pinside locally about a:
- Relatively clean SM or
- Lawlor classic (ES, FH, etc...)
- My other wishlist items are likely out of my price range (AFM, TAF)
Most folks have replied quickly and I have some leads, but thought I'd try here as well.
I likely can't afford a pristine collector's item, but I am needing a solid, working pin that will allow me to slowly get my feet wet with tinkering/maintenance/cleaning. Please PM me if you think you might have something that fits that bill.
Side note: I've seen recommendations to look at Craig's List, but outside of the truly rare pins, the ads are light on details and high on price. Am I too assume there's a less informed audience on CL? Have a hard time believing they are all minty.
