online pin purchase, not ebay, that delivers to Canada

Hi all,

My 5 yrs old daughter got addicted to pin trading last summer at WDW. We purchased expensive pins for her one day in the park.... to see her trade them away for Belle princess ones (potentially scrappers)... and we then had to start over. She had so much fun!

So, we are going again this April and I thought that I might as well order her some cheaper pins to trade in the parks. I do know about the 1 to 2 $ one pin average for reals, and I'm OK with that.

Now, I don't want to order on ebay from multiple sellers. Any ideas of online stores that sell lots of the real thing? Added difficulty, they need to ship to Canada for a reasonable amount (which lots of ebayers don't do).

Thank you in advance for suggestions.

Not sure where you live in Canada but we are near Toronto and quite often I am able to get clearance pins at the Disney Store Outlet at Vaughan Mills.

I would try to find something on ebay. If you look, you can find reasonable shipping. I would just find someone with multiple items and get a quote to combine shipping. If you find something that shipping is too high, you can contact the seller and see if they can do any better. It doesn't always work, but it might. Also, try to buy extras and keep them around for the next birthday/christmas. The shipping is usually cheaper with multiple lots.

I took a quick look and found:
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NEW-DISNEY-CO...item51a76d7315

I have no clue about this seller (and can't find reference to him in the ebay thread), but the items look legit.. If you are interested, you can ask in that thread if anyone has any experience with him.

Shipping is reasonable - 12.42 for one lot and 16.54 for 3.
