So, here's the story:

I'm an active member of the steampunk community where I live, and a few years ago we decided to do a White Elephant gift exchange for the holidays. I prepared a box with elaborate packaging and a nice treat inside, only to learn that the event was cancelled at the last minute. The box has been sitting in my garage ever since, because I can't bring myself to destroy the packaging. I think it's time for that box to find a home.

Now here's the plan:

You will send one (1) partner a steampunked package containing a steampunk item of your choice. It can be anything from books to jewelry to random clock parts, although if you plan to send clothing you might want to consider how flexible the sizing is. I'm going to suggest a price range between $10 and $30 for the item, but this should not be considered a rule. The swap is more about sharing things of interest than sharing things of monetary value. The idea is to send your partner something that will make them say "WHOA, NEAT!!!"

If you have something awesome and steampunk that you've been waiting to share with someone, now is the time to do it.

If you have any questions or suggestions for how to make this better, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm still pretty new at this.
