This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap.

Here are the rules:

For this swap, you will send AT LEAST 5 goodies to your partner, in no smaller than an A5 (6x9) envelope.

The idea of a blind surprise is to select and wrap each item individually BEFORE your partner is assigned. For this swap, anything goes...

BUT please only send in the condition you would like to receive.. DO NOT send any dirty or broken items. Items should be as good as new/ new.

Approximate spend: £5 / 5.91 Euros / 7.58 US dollars excluding postage.

This swap is a flake free zone. If you cannot afford to send items to this value, or you do not have the time to, please do not join.

No recent 1s or 3s. I will be checking profiles.

Only well filled out profiles. If you have an empty or brief profile, you will be removed.

Examples of goodies to send:

Small souvenirs from your country




Note cards

Fridge Magnets

Washi Tape

Sticker sheets

Postcards (4= 1 item)

...The list is endless!!

If you receive something you do not use, save it for another swap. Simple :)


I check all profiles, and remove as required immediately prior to assigning partners

I would love to join. I already have my supplies and wrapping ready. :)

Yes you're welcome to use a box.

Do you plan to allow in the swapper with 17 1s?

Sweetpea36 10/22/2014 #

Are newbies allowed to join? I have been writing letters for years and have been using postcrossing for a while now.

Could someone explain me what means a flake free?

TC 10/23/2014 #

@violetbohemian is already late on 4 swaps.

snailmailer1 10/23/2014 #

@TC I ALWAYS check through ALL profiles immediately prior to assignment delete those unsuitable. The answer is therefore NO.

snailmailer1 10/23/2014 #

@Sweetpea36 - newbies are allowed with well filled out profiles. @decamerone - Flake means someone who does not send. Flake free means a swap that seeks to avoid flakers :)

there is someone 17 ones wow. they are rated 3.25 looks like its from the last time they came and flaked does that count as recent?

snailmailer1 10/24/2014 #

As I've already said, I remove unsuitable swappers Immediately prior to assigning partners. I've been hosting this swap long enough to have an idea how it works.
