Pressed Pennies

I found some pressed penny machine locations in Vancouver. I was going to bugger off early (ie. 5:00pm) from work and get some for latraviata. I don't know if I want to start collecting or trading. I wouldn't give out my snail address to just anyone (I trust latraviata, but I don't really know anyone else in pennypress), so I'd have to get a PO box (Mailboxes Etc. comes to mind). The only problem with that is I'm too cheap to get one just for the purposes of trading a few pressed pennies =P

A while ago, B got one for the community service club I belong to. I'm going to ask her if I can share it... either pay her "per shipment" or if I start using it a lot, I'll pay half the monthly fee.

i've infected you!

when i don't want to give out my home address, i tend to give out my work's p.o. box. but it might look strange if you're getting packages all the time there.

my work thinks it's weird i send out so many postcards every day from here. but i don't mind the questions so much about them.

if you want to email me your address, i will send you some pennies.

Denial... for the moment =)
No! You haven't infected me!!! =D

I was just going to get two of each penny design. One for you and one for me.

Then I wondered if anyone else on pennypress would like to trade. Then I thought about how I would trade and decided that the PO box would be the deciding factor on whether or not I could trade.

But I'm still mulling over it because I've tried to collect various things in the past, but I only end up with a partial collection of things I don't need and the guilty feeling that I've spent way too much good money that could have been put to better use.

I may just get one of each penny for you and not keep any for myself even.

i think you should at least get the pennies for yourself too. when i wasn't a "serious" collector, i just get them as souvenirs from places i went to. it was good enough for me for over 10 years (yeah, i got my first penny in jr. high school).

if you want to, you can get a whole bunch (maybe 4 of each design) and send three over to me. only 2 people really trade in pennypress (that's pigri and djjazzyjess). i can ask them to send me stuff for those coins and then i'll mail it all out to you. but it could take a while.

i never seriously collected anything in my life and i guess i'm giving in to this "everyone needs a hobby" thing. heh. ;0

btw- i meant to ask you what you thought of enterprise.

Re: Pennies

You're trying to make this easy for me to hook me in, aren't you?! =D

yep! and plus, it's great that others outside of l.a. would be willing to take pity on my somewhat obsessive soul and get them for me. hehe!

Or...
I could be just the Vancouver Penny Relay Person for pennypress.

If I can figure out how much it would cost me to get pennies and send them to various people/places, I'd be willing to go and get them by request. And I do have a PayPal account...

Hmmm... I wonder if there are any fees to receive money from PayPal... I wonder how easy it would be...

Re: Or...
i thought pal pal took a portion of what you received? i could be wrong but that's why i haven't signed up for it.

i could post to pennypress to see what the interest would be to get vancouver coins. i'm sure there would be a definite interest.
