    Pretty new to trading. More of a hobby I enjoy with my daughter. We collect stitch, Alice in wonderland, haunted mansion and she loves most hidden Mickey and snack shaped pins!

    Well you can take photos of the pins you have for trade and post them in the trading forum along with the themes you collect or specific pins you're looking for and if somebody's interested they will post there! If you've made a pinpics account or a pintradingDB account those databases can also be used to make it easier for people to see the pins you have and the pins you want.

    If you do try out pinpics be warned the site is pretty old and people have been having trouble logging in and signing up and trade requests through their haven't been working well. PintradingDB is a newer site and works well but they don't have half the catalogue pinpics does.

    Welcome @Rick195275 ! Glad you made it over here! :D

    If you need help identifying a pin, we have a subforum for it here:
    Help me Identify This Pin!

    In order to post pictures in any thread, you need to use a photosharing site. IMGUR is helpful and doesn't require you to create an account with them, but if you want to catalog your pins, it would be a good idea to create an IMGUR account.

    If you want to start trading, you can post a trades thread here:
    Pin Trading

    But you need to be a member for 10 days and have at least 30 posts to do so.

    Marketplace rules (trading, for sale, and/or wanted):
    Sales Forum/Marketplace General Rules

    This is to prevent spammers.

    So I went to try and create a post in the trading section and it said I have insufficient posts? Is there a certain number I need to hit or does my account need to be older?

    Go back and re-read Starry's post. She added the rules.

    Oh I forgot, you have to post a certain amount of times and be a member for a certain amount of days before you can post in the trade or sale sections. It's a little bothersome but it keeps away spammers for the most part. Don't worry you'll get there quick!

    No such thing as a stupid question; it's silly not to ask questions. :)

    Welcome! To echo what @halloweenfiend and @akarih have said, please don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have about pins and pin trading. Remember that even the most experienced pin trader/collector was new at one point; the best way to learn is by asking questions and the only 'stupid' question is the one you don't ask.
