There is a lot of Disney memorabilia out there available for purchase, but some items are harder to come by. A Disney collector posted a Want to FyndIt requesting help locating a complete box set of Disneykins in good condition for $85-$120. They offered a $4.00 bounty reward to anyone who could help them find their collectible Disney miniatures.

The Want was posted in mid-December and a Find was located and posted in the last week. Although it took a few weeks to make a match, the Disney collector was able to get help locating the item for the price they were willing to pay for it.

FyndIt can help you track down hard-to-find items, but we can also help you locate readily available items for a better price online or in stores. Looking for something and you want to get a great deal on it? Post it to FyndIt and let our community of Finders help you track it down.
