    Ever since December, I've been trading pins casually. While I certainly don't have a gazillion pins in my collection, its a heathly number of 28. (I won a few Millionaire pins the other day!). At first, I just picked up any cool-looking pins to trade. Then, I started to trade online via pinpics, now I'm buyin' and sellin' them on eBay.

    Of course, I wouldn't take advantage of younger kids by the term you call "sharking" , but I tend to stick to the Cast Members since they are so easy to trade with. I did a few trades with some big traders, I even purchased and traded a pin once. I'm past the beginning stages, but I really need to cut back on them a bit. I do have a lot of expenses for my next year in college next fall. At least I don't use the pathetic amount of money for beer!

    If anyone of you guys have been in the parks in the past few days, including today, I have somewhat have been inspired by Larry's "Theadore P. Trader" teddy bear of fame. I carry my pins around with a Minnie Mouse plush! All of my pins are on her dress. I get so many comments about it.

    I met Larry yesterday at Epcot and he was very nice and knowledgable. I even got a good trade from him! I hope to meet him again...and his bear.

    Expect to see a picture of me and "Minnie" soon on Dizpins.

    I've posted here before, but I guess I'm going to start getting in the groove of things here. Not as a regular or something.

    One day, "Born to Shop" will be mine!

    I met you at Pin Central in Epcot in February ( or was it March?).

    I was thrilled to have met you since I had read your paper on the other CB . I was the one that gave you Spacesuit Minnie. I think that was the only Minnie I had that day. I am so glad that you are out and about trading for Minnies. Good luck in all of your pin quests.


    Kath....weren't you there with me that day?

    I guess it a small world after all! (Now that song is going to be in my head again!) To see two pin traders that traded with me!

    I had my greatest trade today when I finally snagged My First Minnie! I am so elated! I traded the Fantasyland Minnie for it from a Japanese trader. I don't know if she knew how hard that was to get this pin, but I hope she is satisfied with her pin!

    Anyone who is going to the Long Island pin meet, I should be attending next week. Hope to see you there!
