And on to #5---

You will scavenge a 6 x 9" (or larger) envie full of found goodies to mail to your partner. Examples include : old keys, ephemera, bottle caps, shiny things you found in the parking lot, found fabric, bits and bobs from the garage, you get the idea. The rule is that is must be a "found" item. Nothing new. You can bust your stash, walk around town staring at the ground like a crow, raid your garage, do some creative cutting on your old magazines, find stuff at the thrift store, raid the junk drawer of everyone you know. Think outside the box for sources. It's not profile based, your partner can have the fun of deciding what to do with the supplies in their crafts.

These kind of supplies are great for so much (dolls, frames, etc.) as we all know and it's a blast scavenging for these items. Make sure they are "clean" and usable. Any questions please pm me. Have fun! Everyone in good standing in the group is welcome.

i am very nervous to join this swap (i want to ) cause i am not sure just what type of FOUND items you are all looking for and this sure does sound like a fun swap to be n

Hi Maggie- I don't think people are "looking" for anything other than clean, usable items. I've received neat bottle caps, cool tags from clothing, games pieces, old keys, just anything that looks like it could be used in a craft. We're a pretty imaginative group! My rule of thumb is to send something you would like to receive.

Maggie, look at people's profiles. Some people love tags from clothes or receipts from drycleaning, some, rusty metal things or old things from the kitchen drawer.
