    Recent Pin Aquisition(s) thread!

    Here's a thread to post about your latest pins that you bought, traded to get, or whatever. If there's a pin that you've been hunting for for years and finally got it, it would be fun to share the story right?

    Photos preferred but not required! So let me begin.


    I've kinda been buying too many pins lately as I've only now rediscovered my love for it.

    Last night at Downtown Disney I picked up the following:
    -Ratatouille movie logo pin
    -Ratatouille opening day DLR pin
    -Meet the Robinsons logo pin
    -Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage logo pin with the port window

    (can you tell i'm a fan of logos?)

    Today I went and got a haircut and stopped by a hobby shop on the way home. Wow... I picked up a ton of pins that I skipped over when I was younger.


    This set of Adventureland pins was only $26!


    What I love about it is that it has the Tahitian Terrace and Swiss Family Robinson sign pins!


    Then I got these 12 pins from another hobby store for $60.



    Is that a bargain or what? That's $5 a pin! I'm stoked.


    So what pins have you picked up lately?

    My fave recent one I bought was a Tink one that reminded me of Rainbow Brite:

    cute AND Sparkly!!

    My fave trade recently was this Captain Hook from the Hidden Mickey Cast Lanyard series!

    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...

    I need to get another board! I have so many pins in bags, it's so sad I need to get them up and displayed!

    Yikes, thanks for the advice! But somehow I've been pushing on the edges anyway to avoid getting my fingerprints on the window.

    And is theh rocket jet pin the one that's lenticular? I think I would have gotten that if it wasn' lenticular. I couldn't tell what it was at first.

    Re: Recent Pin Aquisition(s) thread!

    Sunday I was able to get the following:

    From the "Mickey's Pin Festival Of Dreams":
    AP Lilo & Stitch Lanyard Medal
    AP Lilo & Stitch Pin
    Eye Of Mara Surprise Pin
    Wild West Surprise Pin

    From Camp Pin e-ha-ha:
    Lilo & Stitch Spinner Pin
    Mickey Spinner Event Pin

    I also got 5 VMK Pirate Pin packs, and while in the Fronteirland store was able to trade for a Tinkerbell YOMD dark blue pin.

    It was a good day!

    Re: Recent Pin Aquisition(s) thread!

    Mickey's Pin Festival of Dreams -
    Tomorrowland® Area Collection - Tinker Bell
    Jedi Training Academy
    Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters

    "Friday the 13th, 2007 - Maleficent" <--- my favorite of the bunch
    "2007 Disneyland® Resort Holidaze Calendar Collection - July - Dory and Nemo"

    "M Magazine Collection 2007 - July - Mr. Incredible"
    "Mickey Mouse - Pirate in Training"

    Plus pirate pin boxes...

    Some were for me and some for my son. I am in so much trouble though, my three year old is already addicted and I just started recently. We've gone off the deep end at my house or at least that is how my husband would describe it. The guy in the store even accused me of being a 'pin nerd' when I told him a pin on his lanyard was a GWP from last year. I feel like too much of a pin newbie to be classified as a pin nerd already.

    I got it at the Frontierland pin store, there were a few left but I'd try to get to the park soon since this is a limited edition pin of 1000.

    Haha ok thanks. Not my cup of tea actually. It looks like a pin my grandma would have bought. I'll pass, but thanks for showing me!

    To tell you the truth, it's better than it looks on the computer, but it is still kinda cheap. It looks like it was made of plastic and make sure none of the jewels are missing before you buy it.
