When the pins first came out at the Disney Stores for the Millenium countdown I bought a ton. I always forgot to bring them to the parks with me until last year. Thanks to me there was a ton of the Millenium pin series floating around the park.
I don't trade pins. I usually buy 1 each trip to remind me of the trip & I have some that friends have given me which I would NEVER trade.
I think it's a nice concept though.

All the pins I purchased are to remember a particular trip. The rest were given to me by my DH - when he was in Athens for the Olympics, or my DD. All or most are limited edition pins. I just can't part with any so I don't trade.
I have been pin trading for almost 6 years and I love it. At first I did it because the pins were so pretty and cool, but now I do it for the people. I have met a lot of great friends from pins, friends who have helped me though some dark days in my life, and I am forever grateful for them.

Some Days Look Better Upside Down
Though I bought some pins from The Disney Store when they used to sell them, it wasn't until Spring Break 2006 that I bought my first pins at the park. I had eyed some during previous visits.
I purchase pins that match my interests (Vintage Mickey, Walt, Mickey Mouse Club, Donald Duck, Narnia, Disneyland's 50th), and I wouldn't part with them. However, if I spotted an interesting pin on a cast member's lanyard, and one of my pins could still be purchased at Disney, I'd trade.

Mostly I enjoy the collecting aspect (21 pins and counting) with some trading with CM's. Trading with other people is alright, but not the most fun in the world...it just feels like a weird swap meet.
Mainly, I collect Resort pins and Lilo & Stitch pins...I've got some others that I like from specific rides, but I'm not willing to devote that much money to a hobby, especially when I've already got a hobby in comic books and video games that run me a ton of money every month.

Reason: <Sigh> Completely forgot a paragraph. :)

"What if, on a crowded street, you look up and see something appear that should not, given what we know, be there. You either shake your head and dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than we think. Perhaps it really is a doorway to another place. If you choose to go inside you may find many unexpected things."

I collect...I buy a pin because I like it...I don't want to lose it! I think I need to buy some pins I don't especially care for so I can trade!
I love to pin trade! It is so much fun

I only buy pins because I like them, so I wouldn't want to trade them. However, if I saw someone with a pin I really wanted I would try a trade!

I have not nor do I currently plan on trading pins ,however I do collect them.
I love to trade and collect pins!!!!!!
Has anyone traded pins at Mouse Gears?Well sometimes CMs put up this board with a bunch of pins on it, and you trade one of your pins for any ofthe pins on the board.What ****s is the older you are the less time you are alloted to look at the board and choose.

Only have a few pins that were given to me
I started my niece trading pins on our last couple of trips. I still don't know how to tell what a good pin to trade for would be, however. But, on our last trip in December, she did trade for a Goofy pin (that I suggested she trade for) that turned out to be a Cast Member pin - so it was a good trade!!!
Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!
