What is a DH?
I am definitely a pin trader/collector! I have a collection of MK pins hanging above my desk. I found a poster sized map of the MK and then put as many attraction/show/restaurant pins that I could find on it. I've started an Epcot and AK collection but they are far from complete.
Here's a picture of my board when it was almost complete:

I am a BIG pin trader! It is the best thing you can do in Disney other then the rides and shows. Some of the pins i have collected are so rare no one else can get them! I love it and I hope to find more people that are interested in pin trading as much as I am!
No, I have not traded. I have one pin. I may if I get some more. But, I love the one I have that I don't know if I could give it up. Oh the thought of parting......
I love trading with cast members and most guests, (except for some at DTD) personally I find it more fun to seach for a pin than to buy it
My wife, son and I each have a lanyard with about 10 pins each on them. We trade with each other throughout the year and have quite a bit of fun making "deals". My wife will usually trade with a cast member if she sees something she really likes (mostly Villains), and we trade amongst ourselves when we are in line at the parks to pass the time. I don't know what any of our pins are worth, if anything, but we enjoy the few we have.
I enjoy looking at the collections of a few of the "big time" collectors and traders that I have seen, and I get a kick out of the ones I have heard haggling over the details of a trade @ DTD. I guess I've never seen one of the more "millitant" traders I have heard mentioned, but if you have a hobby it's good to be passionate about it right? There are far worse things to spend money on.
I don't get into trading pins. I think it's a waste of money.
I love the pins! I buy them, but don't trade them.
Been collecting pins since our first trip in the 80's. Not really interested in trading. Tried it a few times but wouldn't consider myself a trader. Kids have enjoyed a few trades but even they would rather hang on to their faves.
Of course if it is a pin I want yes trade . I think all of us have a special character we like better.
I want to trade, but I just got my first 6 pins on Sunday! My daughter has 9 and wants a "Baby Stitch" pin badly. We looked all week and never got one...just something to look forward to on the next trip to WDW!
I do trade Disney Pins; I'm not a die hard Disney pin trader but I always have some pins with me when I go to WDW
I am a big fan of Belle so when I'm looking at Disney Pins thats who I'm mainly looking for! I have 24 of her so far! :D
I love pin trading! Unfortuantely, I don't have very many pins. So whenever I get a pin that I wouldn't want to trade, that's one less pin I can trade, and then I run out of pins for trading.... And this really stinks because we don't get to the parks very often, and I don't buy them over the internet because my DVD collection and the D23 magazines are higher on my Disney merchandise priority list.... (rant over)
I do collect and trade when I'm in WDW.
For my last visit I bought some cheap pins off ebay, so I had some that I would happily swap with CMs and other guests.
My pins are on a cork board in my room, so I can see them all the time!
im getting a bit obsessed with the pin collecting i have a bunch now
ohhh and once i traded with a cast member and got a special cast member only pin
