Hello all! I am a Pin trader, not a EXPERT by any means. I do it for fun. I have sturggled with creating an actual THEME for my collection. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions. Some of the ideas I have toyed with are,

Favorite rides
favorite characters
favorite movies


the one I am currently thinking of is a variation of the Movies one. I was going to try and collect title logos or emblems from some of my favorite movies. I would LOVE to find a pin for Hercules that is the gold symbol that has a cloud and a lightening bolt.
Anyone ever seem anything like this?


***Sorry if this in the wrong section******:confused3

I didn't really address your original question, but your post made me remember this site.

I tried to make Mickey head shaped pins my theme. Then I realized how many of those there were.

I collect Donald Duck pins with him only on the pin (no other characters). My DS6 collects whatever he likes, no theme for him and my DH collects patriotic pins (red, white and blue).

I collect pins of ... the Parks i've been to, The resorts i've stayed at, special holiday pins where i'm at the park and my favorite ride/attraction (Toy Story Midway Mania)... but pretty much only my one favorite ride since its way too easy to get carried away. I will sometimes trade for castmember hidden mickey pins too, but rarely.

My girlfriend does Princesses, some Villains, Cast Member / College Program, and Limited edition pins.

I am a lot easier, I do Pirates, Sorcerer Mickey/Hats, and DVC/AP/D23 pins.

I collect villains, primates and other random ones I happen to like, like anything from Pete's Dragon or many with food themes.

When I was at WDW a few months ago, I was doing holidays. DD12 was doing the "Cutie" type pins and DD9 was doing Chip/Dale and Tinkerbell.

That's a great collection! Do you actually find these pins through trades or do you buy them? DD pin trades, but she doesn't have any particular theme when she trades - just whatever catches her fancy. I usually don't see such nice pins on the CMs when she trades.

My pin lanyard has a ridiculous amount of Ariel pins so I guess that is the main theme of it. It also had some cool pins of mickey and donald my mom got in the 70s. When I was at WDW in July I collected mostly ride pins.

Both trades (mostly on pin BB's) and purchase (at parks and sometimes e-bay). Sometimes the CM's have some really neat pins .... but it takes a lot of searching and effort at DL .... WDW is a LOT easier because just about every CM has a lanyard

My girls have been collecting pins for a while but not me Until recently! This past Saturday, I saw both a Goofy and a Pluto wearing firefighter hats. My husband is a fireman, so Ive decide to collect firefighter pins! I quickly borrowed 2 traders from my daughter and my collection has begun! :firefight
