7/3: Retail & Venue Pin Retailer

Over the last few weeks, we've seen another eBay retailer with some pins that were harder to find during the Games.

Tragars Collectables has been trading for nearly 10 years and for the last 6 months has sold a range of London 2012 pins on eBay. The owner, Gary, is happy to receive any emails for specific retail/venue pins that you may be looking for. The prices on eBay take account of eBay fees, so he hopes to be able to sell at a reduced price off eBay. He has a range of retail and venue pins and plans to add more sets over the next few weeks. He is unable to help out with sponsor/media/NOC pins. Why not contact him to see if he has the pins to fill any gaps in your collections.

He is offering readers of London Pins some special offers...
  • A free pin badge (his choice) with every order
  • A Free Venue & Mascot 3 pin set (Sailing) when you spend £50 on pins
  • Free UK postage when you spend £50 on pins
You can contact him via email or take a look at his store on eBay - Tragars Collectables

As with my previous posts when I mention specific retailers, I take no responsibility for the products or service you receive from them, but can confirm I've made a successful purchase from Tragars. I approached Gary to see what he may be able to offer London Pins readers - hence this blog post.
