    First tentative steps into pin collecting... Here is my first haul!

    Hey all

    I was dragged into pin collecting last month whilst on a trip to WDW, and spent quite a bit of time/money in the parks building up a small collection. I also bought a few from the UK online Disney Store when i got back to the uk. So here is my current collection. The first page are my "keepers", the second page are my traders (a few of them i have two of, hence why they appear on both pages). I am paticularly fond on the baby pins, and the Lady pin

    That's quite a nice collection so far! If you keep up this pace, you'll need more pages/boards in no time ;-)
    Enjoy this great hobby!

    That's a pretty impressive haul! My first steps into pin trading I only came back with four pins, although I was aggressively trying to deny it the whole time. But in the end... Resistance is futile.

    Nice collection so far. Naturally I love Rufus and Stitch! Be sure to update when you get more! (Also, if you're going to be swimming in pins, do make sure those pin backs are on them first. Otherwise things could get ugly. )

    Are there any pins in particular, or characters/themes you're looking for now?

    Welcome! The nesting doll pins are a favorite of mine as well! Took a few trips to WDW to get them all!
