    Exclamation Buying Pins

    I really really want to start trading pins this trip. In this weeks show Lou said that he bought some off of Ebay. I was wondering if anyone of you have done this. Who did you buy them off of ? and stuff like that. I am kind of scared to buy stuff off of Ebay because you really do not know a lot about the people.

    Re: Buying Pins

    I haven't done this yet, but will be suggesting it to my sister and doing it myself next time we go.

    My suggestion would be to look at the sellers feedback. That is usually a good indicator of what kind of seller they are. Find a seller with good positive feedback and you should be OK.

    (Also, don't be scared of flying. It is one of the greatest, and THE safest, ways to travel. )

    Re: Buying Pins

    I purchased many pins off Ebay. You just have to read the people's feedback. Each time i go to disney world I buy a lot of pins to trade and you can get some really nice pins by trading with the cast members.

    I've purchased many pins on ebay and have never had a problem. Just remember to check the seller's feedback and shop around a bit before you buy. Good luck.
