Question new to the pin trading

HI all! I'm pretty new to the pin trading thing, just started on my trip 2 years ago, grabbed some mystery pins and away i went! Had a blast looking for anything muppets! I'm excited to continue to collect on our honeymoon in October! My husband's family is going to be there the same time so we plan on spending some time together and I wanted to get our neice who is 4 started too. What is the cheapest way to buy pins? I see some on the disney store site 5 for 26.95 is this the best deal? I don't remember how much they were at the parks and I know how into pins people are so i need your expertise!
Thanks for your help!

My boyfriend and I were JUST talking about doing this the other day -- we're going to do some research on trusted amazon sellers and buy a starter set from there that we can trade in the parks. Usually the only ones I actually pay for on the Disney site are the ones that I like too much to trade

Pins from China are most likely scrappers, that's the problem buying from Amazon or eBay. You can use the Disney Store site and look for pins on clearance, you can also use the thread linked in my signature for good sellers on eBay. Best of luck and have fun trading!

I've generally had good results from mousepinsonline.com. Get the grab bags for the best prices -- then use them as traders. If you do get a scrapper, he will generally send you a replacement.
