Default Amish pin GO?

Since there's been a bit of discussion about it over at LHC, I thought I'd start a thread, and find out who's interested in what.

I've never done a GO, so I'm not quite sure how to organize one of these (someone else is welcome to take over, if interested). But I'll try to check back a bit, and perhaps order at the beginning of July. Sound good to anyone else?

I'm interested. Look, I even registered with TBB. Ha!

Forgot to add what I want. 2 packs of the 2 1/2 inch, two packs of the 3 inch.

I don't plan to order any pins, but I wanted to jump in and say Hi :waving: to Bugeyedmonster2!

I would certainly be interested in ordering 2 packs of 3", I need to measure my other pins to see what lenth they are...

Thanks Anje for getting this started, I was just too much of a newbie to actually know how to do this...plus having these two boards just confused me...I didn't know what TBB was for!

I joined too, just for this thread. I've been wanting some Amish Pins! I'm not sure if I would be better with 2.5 or 3" pins...two packs for me too. I will measure my favorite hair pins and see how long those are.

This (well, your post on LHC about this) was the impetus that I needed to register here. Yay! I would love to order some Amish pins, how about two packs of the three inchers and one pack of two inchers? (I'm a pin loser.)

Well, I've never done one before myself, but I guess what I'll do is put a post out confirming what everyone wants by user, and then I'll make an order in about a week.

I'll ask everyone via PM for money (time to figure out how to get cash with Paypal...), based on their order, a cut of the shipping (Depending on whether they adjust shipping with price, I'll either weight it by the cost of the order, or if they don't, I'll just charge everyone an equal portion. Sound fair?), and the cost to ship your pins to you. Everyone should PM me with their name and shipping address, and if they want anything special like order tracking, which costs a bit more.

I plan send everything by USPS as First Class Mail, which will keep costs down. I'm not sure how thick a bundle of pins is, or how much they weigh. Less than 1/4 inch thick and 1 ounce can probably be sent as a letter for $0.44. Otherwise, I'll send them as packages, which are $1.22 for 1oz, $1.39 for 2oz, and so on. International is not much more, so I suppose I can even send things overseas.

Edited 7/6/09...newest are italicized.
So far, my total tallies are:
2 inch: 6
2.5 inch: 5
3 inch: 8
19 packs total x $3 = $57. (Puts us in the $9.75 shipping bracket at prayercoverings.com.)

Bugeyedmonster2: 1 of 2", 1 of 2.5", 2 of 3"
CinnamonCurls: 2 of 3"
UncommonTart: 1 of 2", 2 of 3"
HeavenlyLocks: 2 of 2.5"
Elenna: 1 of 2"
Anje: 1 of 2", 1 of 2.5", 1 of 3"
Kwanisiam: 1 of 2"
Longlocks3: 1 of 2", 1 of 2.5", 1 of 3"
First class shipping costs:
In the USA
International
