    First. It is best if you pick a theme, an area that you like to collect. For example, you could pick a particular character, or movie, or attraction.

    Second, check out pinpics for information on pins. That way you can find out how many pins are in your particular area.

    Thirdly, read up on scrappers, fantasy pins, and such. It is best to cautious and aware of these. Also watch out for those sales on ebay of grab bags of pins for 50 cents a pin. Many of those are unofficial pins.
