    I used to collect Pinocchio ones, but when I filled up my first book I decided enough was enough.
    There appeared to be new sets all the time and I got frustrated trying to keep up.
    Sadly they just live on a shelf now, and have not been looked at in ages :oops:

    I've got a few, not a collector though, more just a casual buyer :hehe: I keep an eye out for any Robin Hood related pins (they are few and far between) and often get one from the places we stay. Could I find a BLT pin last time? :no: Nor even a contemporary resort one.

    I do have a jumbo Adventurers Club Artist Collection pin that i'm proud of, and an AC members badge that i got for participating. :D

    We have quite a few on lanyards. Nothing specific, mostly with dates on of our trips and where we have stayed, plus all the main characters. I took them this trip but we didn't wear them. We only got one that was from a bus driver at SSR. We were waiting for a bus and the driver of another bus got off and gave DS a Tinkerbell/Pixiedust one on a card saying it was a LE given to staff to give to guests. The verse on the card was sweet and it was very kind of him to get off the bus and come give it to DS :)

    Not a real collector but DS loves Pluto and monorail pins. I like the nightmare before Chirstmas pins.

    We collect anything that takes our fancy, but we have to get the set once we start.

    I usually buy one with the year I was there on it. Next year I'll be buying ones of the resorts we stay at also.

    Other than that i like to collect pins that are to do with the history of Disney.

    I collect anything with Stitch on it. Debi, I got lots of doubles still in their wrappers. I have a habit of doing that, don't ask me how just senior moments, My plan to avoid doing that this trip is photograph them as I go along and check when I'm tempted as it' an expensive error. I bought some Phineas and Ferb pins in Paris and got them home only to find they are identical to ones I got in WDW except they have Disneyland Paris on the packaging. i'm not a fan of Ebay as the charges are prohibitive and now Paypal does charges too, but, I'm happy to trade with anyone on the board. I'm not going to trade so much this trip as I think there are too many scrappers going around now.

    You are right about the scrapers . I've found the resorts, not too bad. I'll have to look but don't think I have any Stitchs . There is one coming out for Christmas at the Disney Soda Fountain Store in Hollywood CA . It's an LE 300 . I'll see if my friend will get it for you .
    Years back I did a pin exchange on the forum. Perhaps after the New Year .

    Wow, thanks Debi! I'll be happy to pay for it with postage if you don't have any trades. I'm sorting out my DLRP pins today and I'll put up a picture of what I have to trade, I also collect Donald and Tinkerbelle, actually more often than not just ones I like the look of which can be expensive.

    No problem there. My friend gets them at cost for me. I just messaged her.

    Right, I sorted out my doubles, so I'll upload a photo of them and if anyone has any trades let me know. I really need to make sure I don't do this the next trip, I presume if you do buy a double you can return it to the store if you have the receipt. Going through my pin trading albums I noticed patternss, Anything to do with Lilo and Stitch, of course. I have alot of Haunted Mansion themed ones as well as the Halloween ones. Tinkerbelle is another favourite as are attraction themed ones. I'll put the photo up tomorrow, if this okay with Justin and Nikki to do some trading.
