For those of you headed to Celebration Europe a few days from now, here are a few more items to keep a look out for. In the last installment I said we likely had more fan swag to be announced. Here is a second and final helping of buttons, badges, patches, postcards, guitar picks and even luggage tags.
This time around there are one or two items that may have replaced Madine's beard as my favorite item being handed out (check out the Han Towel at the end of this post). Speaking of Madine, Darren has confirmed that there will be a chase price tag variant so keep a look out for that.

Now, perhaps you are in a panic wanting to know what to do and how to participate? Veteran swag trader Mike Ritter offered up some great advice:
Have it be fun! Have it be cool! But no selling of swag. Trading is encouraged but not necessary. If someone doesn't have anything to trade, don't exclude them. It's all about sharing your passion for SW and making friends. Swag comes in all shapes, sizes and forms, as I'm sure you've seen. It started out mostly as 1" round buttons, but there are diecast pins, large buttons, small buttons, patches, trading cards, lanyards, badges, etc. You name it and it can be swag. We had can coolies at C6 and toothbrushes at C7. Do what makes you happy, but don't overdo it.
Sound advice from Mike. I'll further share my secret: I get my button designs through Wacky Buttons. They have an easy design template available online and ordering 100 buttons won't break the bank.
Be sure to pack extra room in your luggage for the return trip home and have a great time everyone!
