It's a very addicting and expensive hobby...beware!
Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
Just started myself pin collecting. It can become an obsession, believe me! Dizpin.com is a good site, so is pinpics.com. You can always type in your search engine Disney Pins and that will give you more information. Ebay is a great source for buying them. You can also try http://eventservices.disney.go.com/pintrading/index, for lots of events etc.
you can buy starter sets anywhere in the parks. They come with a lanyard, lanyard medallion, and four pins. Two sets of the same pins. Therefore it makes you more apt (messed up in my article and said inept) to trade off at least two of those pins to get you started!!!!! Hope that helps you out!!!!!
hmm... I am a huge WDW p[in trader... got a pin binder for each park.. including DTD.. the waterparks are all in one though... then ihave my DL & international parks binder... whihc might turn into 2 separate binders come july.... (stocking up on WDW pins to trade for DL pins when i am there...)
