ISS:  Flat Mail Round Robin #1
Group:International Small Swaps
Swap Coordinator:sassafrass (contact)
Swap categories: Random Items  Challenges 
Number of people in swap:10
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:June 30, 2014
Date items must be sent by:September 30, 2014
Number of swap partners:1

For this swap, you will be participating in a Round Robin. You may join in any round you wish, if this swap continues. You need not have been a participant in a previous round to join the current round.

I will start the swap by placing 6 random goodies in an envelope and mailing to my "send to" partner. That person will rate me, and then take out any items they wish, and replace with the same number of items (if they remove 4, they put 4 new items in). The goodies will then be put in a new envelope and sent to their "send to" partner. This will continue down the line. Everyone will be rated, and everyone will have the envelope. The last person will send the envelope to me.

If you sign up, you must wait until you receive the envelope from your "receives from" partner before you send to your "sends to" partner. Once I have assigned partners, I will email everyone and post below with the order in which the envelope will be passed, so that we will have an idea when we might expect the swap to arrive.

The "Send By" date on this swap is to be ignored and is for admin reasons only. The date has been sent for the far future to allow us each to get and send the envelope. You will need to pass the envelope to your partner within 3-4 days of receiving it.

Important Notes

  • You must send the envelope within 3-4 days of getting it
  • Please rate your partner as soon as you receive the envelope
  • There must always be 6 items in the envelope
  • You must take and add AT LEAST one thing, but you may take and add up to 6 items if you wish (the whole envelope)
  • If possible, I would like us each to post below when we receive/send the envelope so we each know how it's progressing


You will only have a few days to turn the envelope around, so please do not join if you do not feel you will have the time to dedicate to this swap and get it out in a maximum of 4 days, or if you are going to be away or have other commitments during the time frame. I understand that life happens and things come up, but if you know of something going on that might impede on your swapping, please reconsider joining. This is a BIG commitment, so please keep this in mind when joining.

This is not a way to destash junk! Please only send new items you would be happy to receive. Also, please keep in mind that this is all sender's choice and is completely random. If you do not like the element of "surprise" you may wish to reconsider :)

Please PM me with questions.
