As we eventually get into winter, I decided to do a little browsing through all I have from theme parks, tours, and the like.
And The Most Obvious Souvenir I have come across are my PINS COLLECTIONS
. The majority is of course,
Disney, but I do also collect other parks and cities' pins and badges, depending on how interesting it looks to me.
And, not only generally collecting Disney pins, but a few categories I list as definite FANpins I enjoy collecting:Scary Teddy
from NBC - and the bear MUST be seen on the pin, solo/with others and definitely LOOK like ST.Maleficent
- I think she is my Number #1 Villain of all Disney films. I haven't collected her as often as I used to.Halloween
- I have a couple of lanyards full of Boo Pins, but haven't bought any pins in last couple of years.Attractions
- There are some really interesting and unique Attraction Pins from ALL Disney parks, out there.
BUT - My most complete collection that I can ever hope to have (and honestly be proud of), all fits into one of those
marvelous PIN BAGS
you can buy at Tokyo Disneyland Resort (and practically no where else in the world of Disney,
unless the US parks have caught up?), and can easily be retrieved, all pulled out, and admired.20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
- and related (like my mini Mickey-Deep Sea Diver). A number of these pins, in fact a
LOT of my pin collection, come from eBay auctions. I get lucky most times. And some times, I pay waaay more than I
But that's being a true collector, right? A bit of $$$$ doesn't hurt too much, when you know what you got.
