Description:

2013 WOW! I hope you are not all shopped out by now but I just thought I would start again in this year with this swap. You can shop in a thriftstore for something , anything whether it is profile mentioned or not. So you can start looking even before the names are up.

In all the 31 months I have put this up there has been very little flakers on here. I try to watch for that when you sign up.

No 1's during last six months of 2012, 3's I check to see why.

Newbies with a filled out profile and this is USA only.

Postage goes up the 26th of Jan. Maybe not much but it will be interesting to see how many join in. I am doing this so the send date is before the 26th of January.

Please be careful and do not send, dirty, smelly, cracked things to your swapper.

So lets have a successful swap and a Happy New Year.

roaddummy 12/ 2/2012 #

Sounds fun! I love thrift store shopping!!

JaMaJo 12/ 9/2012 #

Can this be regifting after Christmas, too, if you know what I mean? LOL!

esjmommy 12/10/2012 #

What kinds of thing do people usually send?

ladydy5 12/11/2012 #

Not regifting, that will be another yearly swap I put up in Jan .or Feb. It's for those who would like to go to thrift stores

Esjmommy, check swappers profile for her interests, or just something you think would be nice.

Lizard 12/13/2012 #

Wish it was international, sounds fun! Good luck and happy thrifting everyone.

JaMaJo 12/15/2012 #

Ok, thanks for the info. I may wait for the regifting one!

This will be the first thrift store swap for me I'm excited.

ratmzapatista 12/18/2012 #

@ladydy5 How do you distinguish thriftstore items from regifted ones? How would the receiver ever know unless I tell them where I got the item? Why would it make a difference?

ladydy5 12/27/2012 #

Swan I personally don't care, it is just in the description like that. If you dont want to go into a thriftstore to buy something for your swapper then maybe this is not the swap for you. I will be putting a regift swap up in February for just that. Description of swap and what the hostess is saying. It is for those who like to go into thriftstores and look around but no one will know where you got it that is true, up to sender if that happends but most of the swappers love to go to thriftstore just for the heck of it.

happymama 12/29/2012 #

What is really fun is to look at the partner's profile, and go to the thrift store just to find a treasure for that person. Like a treasure hunt! I really appreciate it when I get a partner like that, and I try to be that partner. :)

StudioBeeCreations 12/29/2012 #

gooooooooooooood day!!...when will you be sending out/posting the partners?...I am sooooooooooo excited!!!!

Iluvdolls 12/30/2012 #

soooo excited!! These are my fave swaps!

ladydy5 12/30/2012 #

Jan. 6th will post names

luckylynnl 12/30/2012 #

Just arrived here and would love to join this. Is there any price guideline at all? Getting the impression is we just pick and send. Lynn

iheartletters 01/ 2/2013 #

Is there a price limit?

ladydy5 01/ 3/2013 #

price does not matter.nice to check profile for likes or dislikes, colors etc maybe collections, notice my description of this swap as sometimes you just cannot find something from checking her profile

ladydy5 01/ 3/2013 #

pls do not join with a 1 rating for not sending. do not want my swappers to get disappointed, if way back years past i will consider

Amylee2 01/ 4/2013 #

This is awesome! I'm brand new to SB and happened to notice this swap! I'm in the process of filling out my profile, it'll be completed by the weekend. Am I still able to join? Great swap idea BTW!!!

fawnscrafts 01/ 4/2013 #

I love this swap, it is like a treasure hunt. One cane spend so little and get a lot of goodies. Sometimes I wonder if I spend more on shipping than I actually do at the thrift stores.

Also, sometimes I am in the thrift stores, before we get partners assigned and i seen something that is adorable and can be sent safely. I will pick that up as an early part of the swap, then go back and find more when the names have been assigned.

airommire 01/ 5/2013 #

I'm a newbie and this will be my first mail swap and I am VERY excited!! We have a lot of great, clean thrift stores in Chicago and I'm sure I'll find something my partner will love!

sambobbitt 01/ 5/2013 #

Can't wait to be a part of the swap. It will be my first also! Woot Woot!!!

sheashea 01/ 6/2013 #

This will also be my first swap cant wait. I love finding treaures at a bargain price!

ladydy5 01/ 6/2013 #

Names are up. Checked all newbies, one did not have enough of a profile this time and had to ban. If newbies just follow swap bots personal list when joining. It is simple to do and good luck all 107 of you, and that's a WOW!

ashree 01/ 6/2013 #

So excited! Going to the thrift today and seeing what I can find <3

squawbread 01/ 7/2013 #

GLAD TO FIND OUT MY PARTNER'S NAME. LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS. IT IS OUR CHURCH THAT WORKS AT OUR MISSION THRIFT STORE. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO THIS.. ONE THING THAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL SITE IS TO PAY THAT LITTLE EXTRA WHEN SENDING PACKAGES IN THE MAIL. I HAD TO SEND MY RECIPE SWAP PARTNER 3 . SHE DIDN'T RECEIVE THE EXTRA SPECIAL BOX THAT I HAD SENT BY PRIORITY MAIL BECAUSE I DIDN'T REQUEST TO HAVE IT SIGNED FOR WHEN DELIVERED, OF COURSE I HAVEN'T RECEIVED THE GIFTS BACK. ONE WAS A PERSONALIZED ORNAMENT JUST FOR MY PARTNER, AMONG OTHERS WERE SEWN ITEMS AND TOO MANY OTHER GIFTS TO MENTION. I HOPE THE RECIPIENT ENJOYED ALL THE RECIPES AND GIFTS. I DON'T HOLD THAT PERSON RELIABLE FOR NOT ANSWERING ME AS AFTER ALL IT WAS THE FIRST OF CHRISTMAS....MAYBE THEY THOUGHT IT WAS FROM SANTA. AT LEAST I HOPE SO.

SQUAWBREAD

ladydy5 01/ 7/2013 #

sherig47 01/11/2013 #

Squawbread I got my package and I love it :) thanks so much! Thanks for hosting a fun swap lady

Artistic 01/18/2013 #

A package went out to my partner today. Enjoy!

StudioBeeCreations 01/22/2013 #

My package went out today.. I had a blast....looking forward to getting mint too!!!!

ladydy5 01/23/2013 #

Deeno, too late to ban her. I cannot believe there are 36 people who have not sent as of today's send date. I am late too because of circumstances but my swapper is aware to that. Ps contact your swapper if u will be late sending

ladydy5 01/23/2013 #

I will not continue on if I have flankers with this type swap . I can accept one or two because of wonderful angels but not 30, so mark it sent if you did and forgot.

ladydy5 01/27/2013 #

as of today 8 out of 107 have not sent, not bad but I do love everyone to send. Mine is late because I have been gone 3 weeks and will send tomorrow but my darling swapper is aware and kind enough to understand.

ladydy5 01/29/2013 #

May need an angel or two, anyone interested message me pls for a name.

ladydy5 01/30/2013 #

Four out of 107 have not marked as sent yet and thank u my swappers that have. Look f or #33.

nightdescends 02/ 5/2013 #

Okay. So today the package I sent out came back to me. Not really sure why. Says insufficient postage which doesn't make sense since I paid through the actual post office. Anyway. It's going back out tomorrow.
