Hey Everyone: Just wanted to give a quick review one someone I just bought from since they were questioned somewhere here (but arent on an offical list)

I Just bought my first set of pins ever from dknoxinbox.

Being my first set of pins ever, and buying from ebay i was a little nervous, i sent her a message asking where she got her pins, explaning i was scared of buying scrappers ( although i had already paid, i just wanted to verify)

She told me that she got them by trading with staff at disney world that she believes they are all official because ones that she finds that dont look official, she doesnt sell. She also said, However there are so many scrappers out there, that sometimes i might miss a few. THEN she asked me if I saw any ones that dont look official in her shop and if I knew of anyways to tell if they were fake. I refeared her to pinpics (which she already uses)

This is the part that made me happy and feel she is trust worthy~~
I told her i was concerned about 2 of the pins i had ordered, and she took a look at them, and decided that one was fine, however one of them, she couldnt tell... SO SHE GAVE IT TO ME FREE She said she didnt feel right thinking there may be a pin thats fake being bought. PLUS if i dont like any of the pins (and this is also stated on her site) that i can return them within 14 days for a full refund + the price of shipping to send it back.

Hey guys, I'm really interested in starting pin trading and was curious if anyone knew any ebay sellers who sell lots around 30. I have tried going threw the green list, but all I have seen is individual pins. I don't really care if it's in orginal packaging or not, as long as I can trade them with the disney crew

Any advice would be appreciated!

I checked out bizzybee and it says that she is away till July 5th. I am going to Disney early August, and I don't think the shipment will arrive on time if I wait.

I recently received an order I placed with bizzybee1. Order placed 5/22 and received on 5/26. Pins look perfect! Pin sets in the original Disney packaging. I couldn't be happier. I think if she is back in early July and you place an order right away, you should have no problem getting the pins in time for an early August vacation. I bought from bizzybee1 after two bad scrapper experiences on ebay. She has restored my confidence in ordering from ebay - you can get inexpensive, authentic pins if you know where to buy. Good luck.

okay, so, i've read a lot of the pages on here, and i've learned a TON about scrappers, so thank you everyone on this thread.

but anyways, i've been looking at some pins from the ebay seller evaandmike, and i've looked into their feedback, and they don't have anything negative, or about scrappers or anything.

however, should i be concerned about the price of 8.50 for 10 pins?

has anyone bought from them? i'd like to know if i should be trusting of this seller. thank you.

I purchased from bb1 and received my pins very quickly. I would say if you let them know you have an upcoming trip they will ship to you quite fast.

No, I would not trust that price/seller.

I have not so I can't say for sure but I would exercise caution when buying from him. Simply because I use caution with all new vendors. He's using photos from pinpics and I prefer to to see sellers using their own photos, but at $2 a pin it would probably be OK to give it a try.

I have no recent dealing with bizzybee1 but they are highly recommended. I tend to pay $2-3 per pin for traders that are legit. I'm not sure if bb1 has lots or not.

I have not purchased from them so I can't say for sure. Her auctions look OK but I would use caution.

Type in 'Disney pin booster lot new' in the search box in Ebay. Bunches of new booster sets of 7 pop up for $15.95. Yay!

I bought 2 lots, each with 25 pins and each costing $49.95. The pins came in the original packaging with the sticker price. Sets I received included Toy Story Mania, Princess and the Frog, Muppets Vinylmation, among others. One set my husband liked so much we decided to keep it!

Overall, I was very, very satisfied and am confident the pins are authentic. I will buy from bizzybee1 again without any hesitation. Definitely better than the "deal" I got on a lot of 50 for $34.95...lesson learned! I don't want to knowingly perpetuate trading of the fake scrapper pins so I had to throw most of those away.
