    Inexpensive pins

    I want to purchase a bunch of pins to give to kids to get them started trading when they go to WDW. Other than eBay (where most start around $3), is there any place online to get pins really cheap? I've heard of places selling pins for as little as $.75-1.00, but can't find them.



    Thanks!!

    The best place that we've found is eBay or at the Disney Store on Clearance. These are both "hit and miss" approaches.


    There used to be a pretty good site, but it's not there anymore. I'll do some digging.


    There are three auctions going up in 15 hours that are currently more than $1.00 a pin. They all have lots of 50 pins. It is still early and a lot can happen in 15 hours.

    Also, if you have a CM friend can can find clearance pins at the discount store behind the magic kingdom. Most clearance pins are 3 to 4 dollars from there!
    See YOU at Disney World,

    And sometimes cheaper! In December, I gather there's a big discount on top of the normal one.

    However Disney incerased pin prices .45 cents this week
    'Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas and all through the house,
    not a creature was peaceful,
    not even a mouse,
    The stockings all hung by the chimney with care,
    When opened that morning would cause such a scare,
    The children, nestled all snug in their beds,
    would have nightmares of monsters and skeleton heads.
