    Nice! We recently found a ton of pins at an antique store in Lancaster, PA. The poor clerk probably pulled 40-50 pins so we could check them out and luckily we did because they were mostly all scrappers. They probably bought lots off eBay thinking they were legit. They seemed offended when we told them they had a lot of fakes.

    Thank you all for your responses! I live in Denver. I paid $1.40 for the Aquaduck pin. So, that was fun! looks like that Thumper has been released twice and this is the older version. None of these pins have any counterfeit notices on pinpics. Any concerns about authenticity? Glad to be here!!!

    Keep looking! I went through little plastic baggies hanging, and through bins they had locked up in a jewelry case. Since many of the Disney pins are so brightly colored...they catch my eye. Also cool...ARC thrift stores (at least the ones I go to) have a flat rate price for any pin - $1.99. So even the big pin still on the card wAs cheap. In fact, my mom was with me and got a 25% senior discount! Haha!

    Wow,it's great to have more people from Colorado here. I've tried various ARC and Goodwill stores but have never had any luck except an AMC Stubs Olaf pin. Welcome!


    Thanks to Kritter for the awesome sig!

    Side note: A friend-of-a-friend is selling some of her pin sets. Thoughts on these prices would be welcome! I'm having trouble finding "sold" listings online for price/value comparison. Finding Nemo LE 250 3-D/Diorama Set is $200. Cinderella LE 250 Book Set is $150. Mickey Mouse Club 2012 LE 500 Days of the Week Box Set is $35. Tinkerbell Jumbo Monorail LE 750 is $60. TIA!

    Keep me in the loop if you ever plan a Colorado meet-up of any sort! P.S. I usually use the mobile app, so I'm just seeing your signature for the first time - awesome!
