Also if you see kids trading with CM's have a look at the CM's lanyards after cos kids often give away awesome pins!
lmbo...lol i dont have any face ones.. i used too.. but my tshirt many years ago got hung on it and ripped it out...lol
I don't trade pins, but I do collect and have also been concerned that by displaying them on a lanyard, people would automatically think I'm willing to trade all on display. So instead, I pin them to my bag-strap. They're still on show, but so far, have not had anybody approach me for a swapping-sesh.
If I wear a lanyard at all it'll have a few pins on it I'm willing to trade the rest are pins I like. Sometimes I just stick a few on my camera bag.
Use locking backs on your favorite pins. I lost a vinylmation pin DH gave me. I should've taken the time to put a locking back on it:(
thanks for the info guys :)
I have several pins that I always wear, but don't want to trade, so I put a locking back on them. When I trade with CMs, I pick the pin that I want to trade and the one I'm willing to part with...it's always worked for me
Mine stay in a box... I'll get them framed one day.
The first 20K pin Disney produced is the only one I ever wear. It goes on the strap of my camera bag...
I have a LE 300 "Grape Soda" Ellie Badge from the movie "UP" that I wear on my lapel when my wife and I dress up for a nice meal in WDW. I've wore it at various restaurants in WDW and on the Disney Cruise Line. I have yet to be bold enough to wear it at a non-Disney restaurant. But when I wear it and people get the link to the movie, I receive a great response.
Ok guys I have gotta me and bug some new pins for trading and locking backs for them. So we're ready to do some trading :) now just 37 days to go
