    It depends. :rolleyes: If the price is below for what you’ve seen the pin sell, then buy. I recently bought the Aladdin and Genie DLP Best Friends pin for $15. :p

    Well @stitchismyspiritanimal I am flattered, honored and humbled..all at the same time to be asked this question...

    I don't have time to do this today...going to the park this evening.

    But will consider it and get back with an answer.

    In the meantime, @starry_solo @dancecats would you please chime-in here. Thank you.

    Not begging the question, but are you looking for the basics of trading pins with cast members or other guests?

    My intepretation of the basics Connia was referring to was trading for pins that make you happy rather than trying to get as much value as possible with your trading partner and doing your best to make your trading partner happy rather than valuing your pins and getting a better end of the deal above anything else.

    I'm standing here in line for HMH... yay...

    What do you think?

    Personally, if I am trying to arrange a trade, I approach it from, how much did I pay for the pin, originally?

    From that point, depending on what the trader considers the value of their pin (vs the one they want from me) helps me make my decision a lot easier.

    Does that make sense?

    Well, I think Connie was referring to other collectors, and not CMs.

    That's a big Yep!

    I'm sure @dancecats knows that. She's a veteran!

    Definitely makes sense! I usually consider the edition size and how much I payed and then try to be a little generous and give them a good deal because all trades are better when it feels more personal and a little less transactional(?) if that makes any sense.

    Not a mod, but a gentle nudge to move this awesome exchange in trading best practices to a thread related to trading and to allow this thread to stay true to its topic...

    At least it's got the barcode, so you can look up to see if it matches.

    I’m going to second this one. I’ve got really bad asthma and even a whiff of smoke sends me wheezing. ☹️
