To all the pin traders... I have become hooked on pins. For the longest time I could not understand the lure of them. Now I can say I am a true collector. How long did some of you fight the pin craze before you started collecting? Just curious.

I'm still resisting! - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 9:44PM
Me too!! Way too much money for something you can't use and usually lose or give away. I like to save my money and therefore have no hobbies - GodOfWine  512.5 #412 9:46PM
It's so crazy. Now that's all I notice the lanyards! - TheMouseRules  275.5 #1106 9:47PM
I notice the lanyards too. I never had before - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:17PM
I always notice lanyards. I love lanyards - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 10:36AM
Well honey I lasted about an hour longer than you did!! One you had a lanyard it was only a matter of time for me . - MrsTheMouseRules  323.4 #787 9:46PM
I've been hooked since November. Now I'm glad because I got free pins from an in-park RAK the other day :D - Ain1derland  334.9 #724 9:47PM
Always fought it until my recent Disney trip. I even have a post as to why I resisted them. & all of a sudden my bf drops the bomb...he got me my very first set with a lanyard, so I bought myself 1 and a mystery pack! I was so hooked!! I'm antsy to go back... Oh & to top off our last visit, my bf got hooked too. I got him his first lanyard and pins too :) its much more fun with a partner in crime! We havent gotten any since, but we are planning to. Congrats to you, I understand the feeling. But have fun! - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 9:51PM
SO TRUE. Its a great way to meet new people and to talk Disney for a few minutes. - TheMouseRules  275.5 #1106 10:02PM
Yes, it's different and it helps us to get our minds off of the crazy crowds - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:06PM
I've been collecting since @2004 😁 - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 9:55PM
I bet you have an amazing collection. - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:09PM
Gigibunny2 his mom and her boyfriend got us hooked and now they say they have created monsters. It is definitely better with a partner and we love trading and finding random pins we like - MrsTheMouseRules  323.4 #787 10:02PM
It's great bonding, I had to convince my bf but he was becoming a monster anyways bc he started looking for pins and noticed them more than me..monsters in the making but hey at least there's other monsters here to share the experience with hehehe have fun and am looking forward to your collection someday. - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:08PM
*to see your collection** - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:47AM
Collecting since 2001. I never fought it. If I'm really quiet at night, I can still hear my credit card screaming. - BreadAndButterfly  505.4 #420 10:03PM
LOL! - Boundin  711.7 #272 10:06PM
I just drown out the noise by burying it in a pile of SWEET, BEAUTIFUL PINS!!! Muahahaha! ;) - BreadAndButterfly  505.4 #420 10:13PM
Lololol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:16PM
I have always been able to resist the urge to buy pins....now vinylmations on the other hand is a completely different situation. - AgentP  113.1 #3372 10:19PM
I'm opposite of you, I'm resisting the vinylmations - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 10:22PM
Ditto on the vinylmations. To each his own. - TheMouseRules  275.5 #1106 11:20PM
Whatever you do Gigi don't buy one then! Pringles has nothing on vinylmations. Once you pop you can't stop. - AgentP  113.1 #3372 11:26PM
Hahaha I shall take your advice until someone gives me one. I've even avoided the vinylmations RAKs, it's best to not participate in those for my own good. Maybe I'll add you for those haha temptation resisted! - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 12:44AM
Easter 2003: My mom got me a basket of pins from the Disney Outlet Store and from there it went on. - jonagurcia  264.6 #1218 10:24PM
That's so cool!! - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 1:01AM
Our family started the pins for the first time this year and it is soooo addicting, but such a huge bonding experience. It is amazing how many people have them and the memories they bring. - Beej  278.3 #1071 11:40PM
Ooo bonding as a family is great!!! :) - gigibunny2  242.8 #1447 1:01AM
Last year for Mothers Day I bought my wife some Eeyor pins (her fav character) and it went down hill from there  LOL - mike714  338.1 #710 10:03AM
