Howdy Swa[[ers! Once again lets bring it on! Most of you know the way this is done but to increase our brain power I will state this : 1. You have one swapper

  1. Go to a Thriftstore

  2. Find something for your named swapper

  3. You can check her profile for something she may collect or use

  4. It still remains a senders choice though.

  5. Newbies okay\ Completed profile only

  6. Ratings: No 1,or 3 pass six months - I check & I will ban

  7. USA - Obvious because of postage for all.

Any questions please contact me. Have fun with this but do not send anything torn, smelly, broken, chipped, cracked, dirty.

OK can I send Anything inexpensive or just neat? Is there an mount we are suppose to spend or send?

Rachel15 04/ 5/2012 #

if it fits in a type 2 package can we send it in that?

khstarr10 04/ 9/2012 #

Well I think I'll try this one.Sounds like fun.

kimpe 04/13/2012 #

So ideas ladies. I'm not sure of what things people send or receive. Sounds fun though!! i love thrift store shopping. Doing a wedding this weekend and my whole outfit is from the thrift store and my hubby said I looked like I shopped at a high end store!!

sherig47 04/13/2012 #

Type 2 package what size is that?

ladydy5 04/14/2012 #

Type 2 is flat envelope I think.. I don't really care what size package, you guys send what you thjink your swapper would like, neat, inexpensive, it does not matter, as long as it is not cracked, ripped, stinks. Price is never the object either is the amount of things you send.

hello to all tis will be my fisrt swap. so if anyone would give me some pointers that would be nice. thanks

chloebug14 04/20/2012 #

how do i find a parter?

fawnscrafts 04/20/2012 #

@chloebug14 the partners will be assigned on the day or the day after (usually) of the sign up date. you will see a link in the upper right hand corner of the swap that says "see the partners I send to."

Click on that and you will have the partners address.

I have also saved the names for most of the swap I have been in, on a word page, so if I need to go back and them address are no longer available I have access to it.

As for what to send. We are a postcard/crafting site. From inchies to crochet, from clay to buttons. I usually check out my partners profile and get a feel for what they like. Then I go to the thrift store with that in mind. After I buy something from there, I come home and see if I can add to the package.

Just remember the requirements of not dirt, cracked or broken items.

I can honestly say this is on of my favorite swaps. It is up there with mail art.

ladydy5 04/21/2012 #

Thank u fawns craft.! I have a lot of good swappers with me following this swap for over two years. Thanks, making friends.

JaMaJo 04/21/2012 #

Can you look for something from a garage sale? There is a town sale coming up in a week.

Naeco 04/23/2012 #

Does "thrift" include consignment stores?

ladydy5 04/24/2012 #

Certainly you can use "consignment stores too? I feel that garage sales usually end up sending their stuff to thrift stores anyway, so yes that would be fine.

sherig47 04/25/2012 #

What about dollar items or dollar store items?

thunder 04/26/2012 #

Very excited about joining this swap! It's my first time swapping here at swap bot!

ladydy5 04/26/2012 #

I have checked everyone as of this date. Keeping my eye on one of the newbies that has a very limited profile. Welcome to thunder also.
We have a lot of swappers and only 5 days for anyone else to sign up.

knitopheliac 04/26/2012 #

I'm getting REALLY excited about this one. I love thrift stores. :)

fawnscrafts 04/28/2012 #

Well I had to got to the thrift store the other day.... not had to, errr I guess... well none the less, I found some perfect things for swapping and was so happy I wa in there. Of course I had to buy those! Hopefully they can be given to my partner!

cerenaleigh 04/29/2012 #

I've done a few of these swaps. I've sent items like recipe books, CD's, vintage postcards, keychains, bags, etc. I've received antique books, notebooks and memo pads, stationary, etc. Garage sale items usually end up at thrift shops, so I would assume that's fine. Its a really fun swap! One of my favorites.

ladydy5 04/29/2012 #

Please remember this is senders choice but you are certainly free to check your swappers profile which will be up May 2nd.

mbrauneis 05/ 1/2012 #

This is my very first swap and i am very excited i love thrift store shopping and i have a few extra items at home if they fall under what my partner likes thanks for putting this up and if anyone thinks i need to add to my profile please feel free to message me with any suggestions

ladydy5 05/12/2012 #

Okay guys please notice the 16th send date is coming up quickly/ Remeber to mark it sent when you do send. Thanks please don't dissappoint your swapper.

ladydy5 05/22/2012 #

Thank you for swapping, however there were 6 that flaked or didn't mark sent. Out of 101 that isn't bad percentage but I just hate to see anyone go without a swap after they went to the trouble of sending. I may have to angel so I might need a couple of lyou to be willing to do that on this swap. Message me if you will and I will let you know after the 2 week after date due is finished.

jersharocks 05/23/2012 #

I'm one of the "flakes". I'm so sorry that I didn't get mine out on time - I had a HUGE family emergency. I'm still planning on sending mine and I've already contacted my partner to let them know.

ladydy5 05/28/2012 #

Please remember to rate after two weeks if you did not get anything. Then next time I will remember not to invite them in my swaps.
