I love the prizes because I have been playing awhile. At 8-9 months and just now have the opportunity to get these items!! I was upset that I couldn’t get them in anyway. I love the decor that matches the pets. Unfortunately I have the pets but no decor to go with them. I’m happy to see that I can finally get some of them! Thanks! I waited a long time to get them. Now to wait on the rest.

I felt the same with the first Retro fest, Panda was looking and still is pretty cute with his Zen Garden. Now a few months later I have 3, just to make sure: THREE Zen Garden and Panda is already maxed out and lives in Storage, cause that‘s my home for all level 15 animals due to the lack of land.
BTW that‘s why I am asking for alternative reward.

I definitely prepare for a Tradefest and adopt a whole new strategy for it. Sometimes I have a feeling it’s coming and stop trading with ships or the board for up to week before to keep as much stock stored away as possible. I try to have 10 of everything prepared, you can’t fit much more than that in the treehouse. When tradefest starts I also stop harvesting and collecting items from the mills and leave all the bubbles sitting there. This way when Horatio asks for me to collect 18 items from mills, they are already there (and he often asks 3 times in a row). I usually collect the quick ones to make first and then a selection of others. By leaving the bubbles there I also have a good chance of him asking me to make something and it is already done. The same goes for harvesting trees. I bin any unreasonable requests from Horatio - it’s faster to wait an hour for a new request than 24 hours for 3 bracelets to be made. I also delete requests on the trade board when stock starts getting low and I know some items will be too much of a drain on time and resources. So essentially I work on replenishing stock that’s getting low, rather than on producing what he wants as he demands it. I usually complete Tradefest in 2 - 3 days, which lets you do as many bonus levels as you want. I have to admit though that the new approach of giving us 2 Tradefests to get a new animal in bonus levels is a real stretch. That’s 20 bonus levels each time and it consumes your whole week to achieve it. If it falls during the holidays you have the time to do it, but on a regular week it’s too much.
Anyway, that’s how I do it - hope it helps

Does this mean if I don't get enough beaver stickers out of this tradefest I won't be able to get them any other way? If this is the case I will stop now and not worry about the bonus levels.

What it means is the next Retrofest will not be offering beaver stickers in bonus tiers. They should eventually make them available other places, such as boats or the Wishing frog.
