If you play Animal Crossing, be sure to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi this week (i.e., by going to the town gate and asking Copper to Invite Guests). Then check your mailbox. You should get a letter from Nintendo containing the massage chair, an important item in the trading procedure to get the Golden Axe. Just give the chair to the mayor, who will be outside of the town hall the next few days for the Flower Festival. He'll give you a Scallop, which you'll later be able to give to Pascal and receive either the Golden Axe or his photo. Since the message chair is a catalog item, you can order a bunch of them, trade them for Scallops, then you'll be able to get both the Axe and the photo the next time Pascal comes around!
