Years ago, i bought my DH a life-sized Dopey from Disney shopping. Unfortunately it was broken when it arrived. I called and Disney said ship it back and they would reship. They must have had issues with most of the statues because we could not get another. They were out. DH has been stalking ebay ever since. Last summer he found it and bought it on the spot. It was like hitting the lottery he was so excited. Now Dopey has a front and center place in our Disney room.

I got an old disney ticket book from back when they used eastern airlines. It was a 3 day ticket book originally. It still has the 3rd day ticket attached. I had to add a E and C ticket to make it look complete in the frame, but thought the admission ticket was neat and it only cost me 12$ shipped.

I'm a pin trader and a Mickey watch collector -- when I found someone selling a pin with a bonus Mickey watch, I grabbed it. It's a CM watch given out at a party in the early '90s, and shows Mickey and Minnie ice skating - very cute! It's engraved in the back with the event it's from.

I found (and purchased) a quilted bedspread with Mr. Toad on it. It was slightly used from the Grand Floridian, or so I was told. Goes perfectly on the guest bed in our Mr.Toad room.

This custom shirt in Disney font

http://www.ebay.com/itm/110980356708...84.m1439.l2649

I got one for my husband that says "It's not vacation until somebody cries" because he gets so frustrated with my daughter crying on vacation, plus he tends to get all irritable in the humidity which doesn't help with regards to making our daughter cry.

I have about 50 vacation pictures with her crying and him looking really annoyed.

Forget eBay, try Esty

I am not affiliated with Esty but I have recently discovered all the wonderful Disney and Micky themed handmade items so many talented people make. Just love that site. I recently bought some great ribbon showing the micky silouhette but his face is replaced by the flags of the world (think Epcot). I am using that to make some fun stuff for myself for a Disney Cruise where we will visit 6 countries.

I bought as a buy it now the old very heavy 14K castle charm for around $50.

Unfortunately, the charm was too heavy and irritated me when I wore it. Don't feel sorry for me. I sold it (before gold was crazy high) for almost $300 on ebay.

The extra $200 went in my Disney fund.

Back in 2011, we got 5 nights at Bay Lake Tower in a studio for $850 and I earned cashback as well as ebay bucks and 1% in Disney Visa rewards!

not off of ebay but from craigslist I purchased (from a lovely lady) a Mickey Waffle Maker. Gave it to DH for our anniversary and DD for her birthday (both are on the same day) - what a hit! We make Mickey Waffles for every special occasion - makes us smile every time!

My 52 inch tall Figment.



That is a 24 inch ruler leaning against him

It only cost $250. And this was a few years after they were discontinued, with the last retail price at $450 plus $50 shipping.

Getting it shipped from Florida to Virginia was a story in itself.
