This swap is for everyone who love all things Halloween! For this simple swap, we will send 1 envie (at least an A2 card size) full of Halloween or Halloween themed items that can be used for decor or crafting to each partner. Ideas include stamped images of crows, witches, pumpkins, vintage cut outs, black lace, stickers of haunted houses, bats, cauldrons. This list is definitely NOT inclusive! Please use your best judgement and send only items you would love to receive! Newbies welcome, but only if you have a FULLY filled out profile. I reserve the right to ban anyone who has recent 1's, 3's, or just seems fishy! As always, if you have any questions, or concerns, please ask!

OMG love this!! I'm watching this swap since idk if I'll find many things halloween before the deadline, but I'll do my best to do so and join this swap!!

Halloween items usually hit the shelf right after school starts, so hopefully you'll have plenty of time to find some goodies :-) I plan to host a couple Halloween themed swaps, so please keep your eyes peeled for more coming soon!

Well yeah, that's in the US, here in Chile since it's not such a popular celebration and they import things mostly from the US, it's very likely things will hit the shelf by the end of september, but at least they bring pretty cool stuff. So of course I'll keep an eye and try to join this swap. And please let me know if you host some more halloween related!!! I'll keep my eyes peeled, that's for sure :D :D :D

Halloween freaks should have plenty of stamps to stamp out fun stuff to send..even if its not in stores fabric stores always have cool fabric with day of the dead etc..and thrift shops bring out stuff now, I know i would love to recieve old lace and stamped images from another country...just saying lol (wry grin) and just a heads up i am a terrible speller and my phone does not have spell check

I just realized its two partners sorry I have to drop out

Sorry to lose you, didn't think two partners was too much for a flat envie swap :-( Maybe next time!

I can't join because of the two partners and being international, but I will be watching in case you do one with one partner!

So can things come from thrift stores in good condition and is there an amount to spend? I have a drawer full of things I got last year when they had sales. This will be a fun swap.

Babsmomof5 08/31/2014 #

I think thrifter items would be just fine, as long as they are clean, and can be used. Remember this is a flat envie swap, a regular card size preferably, and as a minimum, but you can feel free to send a larger envie. This is not a package swap, so even sending to two partners internationally, this swap should be very affordable. International stamps are 1.15, and you can fit a surprising amount of flat paper type items into that price. I was able to send 8 notebook pages, a playing card with 96 inches of washi tape, three postcards, and one regular card in an envie to the uk last week for less than 2.00!
