View Full Version : Canadian Trader needs HELP

03-21-2007, 11:03 AM
My DD purchased a few pins on our last trip and has now decided that she would like to get involved in the trading aspect on our next vacation. I would love to by a starter pack for her to take with us but it seems everything on E-bay has insane shipping charges to Canada (sometimes I feel like we are on the moon up here). Combine the shipping with exchange rate, etc. and I am not saving any $$$.
Are there any other Canadian traders who have some tips for me.

Do you know anyone in the US who is willing to purchase your pins and then ship to you?

No, I don't but what a great idea.

On Disneyshopping.com, on mondays they have free shipping, and most of their older pins are on sale. This might help you get a few to trade. Hope this helps!:mickey:

We just bought the packs in Disney World when we got there. We were able to buy the packs of I think 7 small pins for a reasonable price almost everywhere. We even bought some at the hotel. We only started pin collecting on our last trip...........it is so addictive.
I have to agree with you on the shipping to Canada. Some sellers on EBay have reasonable shipping costs, while others are out of this world.

I am from Canada too, and I agree it is not worth buying and shipping them... also I find the part I like most is buying the pins at the parks so I can see and feel them all and pick the ones I love. Does your DD have a bag or storage book for the pins? That is a great gift idea and at least cost wise it is worth shipping to Canada. I bought one last time I was Disneyland and I am so glad I did as it lets you store you pins safely and look at them nicely displayed as well.

If that doesn't work for you then I would say order a Gift Card for Disneyland.com that you can give to your wife to use for pins when she gets to the parks.
