After paying shipping fees, buyers may pay $4 - $5 per pin ... even for the cheapest pins. If someone is to buy single pins online, more than likely, they are looking for a SPECIFIC pin ... not traders.

Obviously, there are many websites and bulletin boards dealing with buying / selling pins and associated scrappers.

- OFTEN? Again, make sure you know the eBay buyer. Casting dispersions against a seller merely because they are selling larger quantities of pins (either in one auction, or smaller quantities in multiple auctions) is problematic. In my opinion, alleviating foreign sellers is the quickest way to avoid problems ... reviewing feedback, and reviewing the items typically sold by the seller are 2nd and 3rd quickest ways. I agree ... just because a seller has excellent feedback, does not guarantee anything with regard to the specific auction ... it merely provides a history of known past performance.

As a side note, I would not suggest buying fine jewelry from someone who normally sells baseball cards. Though a seller may have excellent knowledge about SOME products ... they are not necessarily experts in all products.[/QUOTE]

Which is why I said ... "If you DO buy online ... I ... suggest you DO NOT buy from someone outside of US / Canada." Suggesting a buyer avoid "X" seller because they sell many pins does NOT provide any meaningful way of helping the buyer identifying whether a pin is a scrapper."

I'm getting excited, less then 2 months out! So here are our numbers so far:

Tink576
Jessrose
Dsnydreamer
Loudisneyfan + two 13 yr old boys
Silverfox97 + dd5
Scott5150 + dc 9 and 12
Phred52
Disney enabler
Paulasillars
NancyIL's roommate

I'm going to coordinate four kids lanyards and make a tag to designate them since I don't have green lanyards and many of us are likely to wear lanyards of other traders as well. Would anyone else big willing to make a lanyard of 8 to ten traders for trading with kids? I'll make extra tags to bring.

My Wife Amy is also a pin trader, so you can add her to the list. My kids are Lucas (12) and Sarah (9).

Update: We have an official time and location!

It will be Costa Maya day from 8:30 to 10:30am, before we land in Costa Maya. It will be located in The Tube. This way it is early enough that it will not conflict with any shore excursions, we are supposed to be able to go ashore at 1. Hope you are all able to fit it into your schedules.

NancyIL's roommate is DavidaTN (me!), and I'm looking forward to having my pins to trade -- if I don't trade all of them away the week before at WDW! If you still need a kid's lanyard, let me know and I'll put one together, though I feel all my pins I trade are tradeable with kids.

That would be awesome if you were willing to do a lanyard for the kids too! I'm making tags to designate a "kids" lanyard. How I'm doing it (at least with my kids lanyards) they will be like a cast member trade, so the kids can give me whatever pin they want when they make a trade (as long as it is not already on the lanyard). I'll have some books for trading as well, but I'll get to approve those trades. Some of the pins in my books I'm willing to trade with kids but many are sets/limited/etc that I won't trade for just anything.

I'm getting so excited! Getting the kids lanyards prepared, I'm going to scope the parks before we get on the ship to add more variety to the selection.

Does anyone have MUPPET pins for trade? I like to collect the pins from sets ... typically, they are a pin of a Muppet's head .... one series has their name printed on the pin, while another set has the Muppet wearing Mickey ears. I have an extra ROLF ... seeking a ROWLF, Beaker, Swedish Chef ... and a few others.
