    Here in the UK, we can only buy and trade in the Disney Store but he is doing pretty well. He has already managed to get some that originated in DL and recently got an excellent trade ending up with the Goof Troop Ltd Ed pin (750).

    I have seen that on Ebay you can get 50 pins for $40 from a company based in Miami but shipping from China. Is this worth doing? Is it reputable? As an absolute beginner in this game I would really appreciate some advise.

    Thanks.

    Usually that is a sign the pins are scrappers...pins not authorized by Disney. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is regarding Disney pins. I usually don't order from ebay unless they have pictures of what they are selling (what I'm really getting) and they have a high selling rating. Even still, there is a lot of sellers not to trust.

    The big lots I don't go for, and I think they are a little suspicious...

    There are many others who can elaborate, but these are my .02

    I agree with YoYo. Especially since they are shipping from China. I would not make that deal.

    Re: Recent Pin Acquisition(s) Thread II -- Pin Harder

    My recent acquisition is a 2008 Mickey Mouse Singing in the Rain pin. I've been trying to find its listing on Pin Pics but no luck. I googled it and another site says it was released at WDW and is part of a set called movie moments. Tried using these key words on Pin Pics but nothing came up.



    I wish they'd start backstamping ID numbers into the pins for easier identification. If anyone happens to locate this pin on Pin Pics, let me know. I'd like to see the info they may have for it.

    And even though it's not Disney, added this one to my Vancouver 2010 collection, Miga on a Skeleton sled:

    Re: Recent Pin Acquisition(s) Thread II -- Pin Harder

    So I was at the Pacific Northwest Mousemeet yesterday. I got some pins. lol

    First I got the official pin for this year's event from the event organizer.



    I got this one off a trade board.



    Then I traded with a little girl for this pin.



    And traded with her mom for this one.



    Finally I bought 3 pins from a vendor.





    This one I had been after for awhile. I was glad to get it.

    I got this one yesterday

    Haunted Mansion Fastpass pin

    In hindsight, I should have bought an extra or two as HM pin collectors tend to be some of the best traders around.

    Also got both of the purchase with purchase pins shown in Melonballer's post #74.

    which one is that? It is a bit too blurry to see...


    We got this promotion card in the mail from Disney Visa that said if you brought it into a Disney Store, you would get a free pin with any purchase. I bought 2 Vinylmations (and got 2 I didn't have, woo!)

    The pin is similar to others, Tink on a white sparkly cloud with a little tag that says Disney Store. She looks kinda freaky though.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
