    My wife and I are both school teachers.

    High School for me (Government/Civics and Computers).

    1st grade for her.

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Jesus! If a couple of school teachers can afford all those pins, I don't feel so bad about teacher's salary anymore.

    No kids, and I've never spent more than $1500 on a car in my life. (Currently, I'm driving a 94 Dodge Shadow that I've had since before I was in college).

    Also, it's not like I went out and bought all of those pins last month. (*plop!* "Here's the cash! I'll take 50 of your nicest pins...just load them up!")

    You are looking at an insane amount of work that has taken well over a decade. (Buying non working stuff, learning to fix things, scrimping and saving and working hard to sell stuff so that I could afford something else to fix up and sell....etc etc etc).

    It just shows that even if you make crappy wages, you can accomplish great things if you are smart with your money!

    In any case, I'm very proud of my collection. I feel it is a reflection of hard work and determination!

    Quoted from the_pin_family:

    Nice basement. That's my goa, to have an arcade like that one day. Do you ever have field trips at your house?

    The kids I teach have no idea that I do any of this....and that's the way I like to keep it. =)

    For you, however...you are welcome to visit any time you are in the area!
