As requested on a previous post by JediveganStrawberryguy, here's a well-trusted Disney pin seller on eBay! They are family owned, in the US and shipping is free and fast! I have never received pins that I thought might be fake from them. I have also ordered from a company in China but the shipping time was very long and although all pins were good, with the shipping time and little difference in cost, I would much rather order from this company! I'm also working on another post about pin backs that I will put up in the future!

Okay and dumb question, how do they get the lots of pins for so inexpensive? - bugsmom1208  221.4 #1714 3:26PM
The thought is that Disney might be turning around and selling lots of trading pins from the parks, as pins get traded in for hidden mickeys. I'm not sure though. There are really on a couple consistent sellers in the US and they are either FL or CA so it kind of supports the theory... - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:42PM
Thank you so much!!! - bugsmom1208  221.4 #1714 3:14PM
Awesome find! - JackandSally4  69.1 #4187 3:27PM
thank you! - SammyJo  348.7 #680 3:28PM
I actually ordered from this seller a few weeks ago and got a lot of 20. Out of all of them only 5 are genuine. I was very dissapointed I received several low grade pins (discolorations, dips, super light pins that you could bend, misspellings of the word "limited" for LE). I don't want to discourage anyone from buying from them; maybe i just got the bad egg lot. - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1202 3:31PM
Oh no! I'm sorry to hear this! We have ordered a few times and never have had a problem. Did you contact them/did they fix it? They were very attentive with our first order, as we were on a time crunch since an order from the Chinese company hadn't come through so I'm bummed to hear this. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:40PM
I'll be ordering again from them soon, I will see how this order goes. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:45PM
As I mentioned, I don't want to discourage anyone. The seller was accommodating offering a full refund. Although, I knew the risks from buying online, I was just bummed when my first lot didn't turn out as I'd hoped. - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1202 3:47PM
Jedi, I really do think the parks are recouping costs by selling out traded pins. They have to end up with a surplus after they put so many CM hidden Mickey's out there for trade. And these pins are not super shiny brand spanking new, they look like a pin from a collection or one you would trade for that's been worn through the park. HereSnipey: I'm glad they offered a refund. If I ever get fakes from them, at least I know they will make it right. No such luck with many of the overseas companies. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:55PM

This is who i usually go through for mads pins when I buy in bulk for trading. so far I've had the majority of pins be real ones, a few fakes here and there, but at the rate the "Pin market" is flooded with fakes, I think its a pretty good ratio. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 3:46PM
That's my thought. At this price, even if a few are fakes, we still get a good deal and the sellers seem to be knowledgeable and care about trading so I don't feel fakes would be included on purpose. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:48PM
Whoohoo patented it! - madsdad  1868.2 #92 3:55PM

For the price, I'm going to give them a try. We don't have a planned DL trip until the Fall but I would LOVE a Pin meet up to learn more. I love all of the pin posts. Thank you as I really learn something new each day! - bugsmom1208  221.4 #1714 3:50PM
I love going to the Huntington beach farmers markets on tuesdays and u can trade and buy pins for super cheap they told me they even go to DL once a week and they trade with the cm's they were very nice to me and also let me pick out pins from there bag that was stashed away - princessVanessa  384.3 #585 3:51PM
One other thing, if you do buy in bulk and get fakes, please don't just trade them to get rid of them. i either keep them if mads likes the pin or toss them out. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 3:53PM
I agree the bad pins I got I refuse to trade. Some of them are so bad that I would be pretty darn embarrassed to try to pass them off as genuine. - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1202 3:57PM
Agreed, I wouldn't trade them. You could also turn them into Disneyland instead of tossing, the info might help them prevent factories from making more fakes. Maybe. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:58PM
If you still have them, will you post pics? I'd like to see what they sent. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 3:59PM
Sure I will post them tonight :) - HereSnipey_Snipey  265.5 #1202 4:01PM

Another things I could share is that we buy inexpensive cork boards for our pins. She has a large one in her room for all the pins she has traded and is constantly reorganazing them, and then in our living room we have a board that displays our "special" pins or the ones that have special meaning to them. I catch her all the time just staring at her pins, its sooooo cute. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 4:04PM
Love it! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 4:36PM
That's the person I get my pins from! - no1goof  248.3 #1377 4:16PM
Love it! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 4:36PM
Thanks! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 4:36PM
i've ordered a 50 lot set from them and mine were all legit. too legit actually. - chris.  2511.0 #56 4:38PM
Just because Ebay says the seller is good doesn't mean they are.  Ebay has investigated some sellers found them substandard.  There are sites on the internet that advise against buying from mass sellers on ebay.  If they are selling LE pins or the like they are buying from China directly unauthorized lots produced by the manufacturers who originally had the LE contract.  They just continue to produce after th contract is complete... - NurseDisney  56.9 #4510 4:59PM
