Are you crazy about the new Sherlock BBC? Love the books too? Then this swap/scavenger hunt is for you! Please note that my scavenger ideas are from the new series with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.

For this swap you will be sending your partner 5 Sherlock items from the list in a sandwich sized or larger baggie. You may also sew up a baggie of the same size and use that. Items can be handmade or purchased but they HAVE to be good quality. You should create a baggie that you would happily give to your partner in person.

The hunt is on: Choose 5 or more items from this list. Do NOT send all stickers or paper! I am giving you a month to get this all put together.

I don't shave for Sherlock- In honor of John Watson and his fab mustache find a mustache related item. Think stamp, stickers, etc..

Love of London- Choose something London Related. Think Union Jack flag items, British stickers, paper, postcards, etc..

Spot of tea- Sherlock and Watson always have a cup of tea. Send 3 individually wrapped teas. Please check profiles for allergies!

Baby you should see me in a crown- Moriarty loves the bling! Look for a crown to wear. Can be a key chain, earrings, necklace, a small crown to wear, a crown pin or broach, a ring, etc

Sherlock takes notes- A good detective takes notes! Find a nice note pad and pen. Bonus points if it is detective related but not required.

A study in Pink- Create a frilly pink luggage tag using paper in honor of the 1st case Sherlock and John Solve together.

Scandalous- Oh Irene you bad bad girl!! Make an "I am SHER Locked" bookmark or ATC for Sherlock's favorite lady!

Hounds of Baskerville- Create a hound dog out of felt or paper. Or find a small plush hound.

The sign of three- John and Mary get married!! Find a wedding card and envie for the happy couple. Unwritten please! Or send a Ring pop!

Mrs. Hudson took my skull- Find a small skull or make a skull to replace the one that Sherlock lost.

The crime scene- Find some crime scene tape or caution tape. Can be washi tape!!!

BORED!- Sherlock is bored and shooting the wall. FInd a happy face stress ball to relieve the boredom!

DON’T- Send old, dirty, smelly, torn, junky items..

DO- Check your partners profile and made sure you are sending something they will like and are not allergic too.

Due to the nature of this swap and the fact that it's a bit bigger and will require more time; I am not allowing unrated swappers or swappers that have not been rated for Type 3 swaps.

FYI- I will review all profiles and will ban as I see fit. I want this to be super fun and no one likes a flaker. I will angel if you are flaked on. Please let me know after you have attempted to contact your partner. Rate them a one after the rating deadline. If they do not respond to any attempts message me ASAP. Feel free to contact me about this swap and I will answer any questions to the best of my ability.

FINAL NOTES- Please include a note with your name and swap info. Don’t forget to rate promptly!

No recent one's or three's without a reasonable explanation. I have set the requirement at 4.98.

5 or more items from the list in a sandwich 6.5 x 6.5 or larger baggie! Send, Rate, enjoy!

Send a message or comment with any questions!

USA only for now. If someone wants to steal and host an international version feel free.
