I bought pin sets from both angelajuly and funmamas. Both sets arrived within the past couple days and all the sets were real and both sellers shipped very quickly.

Sellers who have "stores" have different rules, I'm talking about the average seller (like myself). In the past if I listed for .99, and it sold for that price the ebay fee was .09 (plus paypal fee -- which has always been on the total to include shipping). But now if I sell something for .99 and it cost $5.00 to ship, ebay gets .54, once you add in the paypal fee too, the profit is just pennies now. Many sellers stopped selling overseas because of the higher shipping taking more profit away from the seller. Some sellers are adding on that extra fee in their "handling" or increasing their item prices. I stay away from the hidden mickey pins myself. I was in WDW in May and the scrappers are so good, even I can't tell them apart in most cases. When I sell pins, I'll stick to my older lanyard pins or my gazillion pins I collected from 1999-2005. Just wanted to give a different point of view.
Wow, Thanks.

I sure hope he is-I bought a 30 pin lot from him on ebay myself last night. I didn't see his name on any of the scrapper lists. We'll see when I get my pins. I'll definitely post the outcome.

I would be suspicious of jeffreyyoung, for a few reasons. He has a stock photo that leads me to believe he sells scrapper, it is all he is selling. Second, he mentions duplicates if you buy larger lots. The price and his location.

can anyone recommend a seller who has a starter set that has fast shipping? we're leaving in 14 days so there might be enough time with a buy it now. I'm looking for a set that doesn't have anything too cute that my 5 yr old daughter (or myself) would want to keep. lol It's my daughter's first time so I thought we could give it a try so she could trade for princess pins or something.

oh and I already looked at funmamas but didn't see anything with a qty of 20 or 25. Is bizzybee1 my only option?

disney.crazy is not a good seller. I don't have the pins to say whether they are fakes or not, but the pins never arrived at my house and they have my money. I would never purchase from them again. Ever.

I would purchase from these sellers. I stalk ebay regularly and don't see any signs of scrappers. I check feedback as a buyer, also. Sometimes people buy from scrapper dealers and resell the pins. Or use scrappers to trade for legit pins. Both seem to offer refunds and don't mention duplicate pins or not on original card. One of the sellers describes the item as new unopened.

When is Enough, enough?

Do I have enough pins? We have 250 pins, all different, ready to trade. We have all pins from A to Z and all points between and about 37 in the mail on it's way. Did I go over board? We will be at Disney World for 15 days.

Last trip, 2009, we began pin trading and I like it, but I kept trading my favorites for new favorites, now I can keep all I like. The pins at the parks at too costly, I look for bargains not scrapers on Ebay.
