Description:

This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap. I am regularly asked if this swap can be made USA only. My answer is always no. There are an abundance of US only swaps out there. Please join those if you aren't happy with international shipping.

NB I cannot angel this swap this month.

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

Pens

Chocolate

Snacks

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 :)

PLEASE REMEMBER TO WRAP YOUR SURPRISES.

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

I would do this all except for the wrapping up of everything.

Hi, this profile of mine is new, because my oldest email was hack... Can join this swap?? I know the rules....

snailmailer1 07/23/2015 #

Yes. Your profile would need to be in English.

snailmailer1 07/23/2015 #

Yes, you'll need to have a well filled out profile to stay in this swap

clavriene 07/23/2015 #

Looking to the participants, quite several of them are practically newbies with very little filled profile,and some have not even join any swaps yet, which kinda got me worried a little.

I got similar thoughts as @clavriene

PLEASE READ THE SWAP INFORMATION. I WILL REMOVE ALL UNSUITABLE SWAPPERS PRIOR TO ASSIGNMENT OF PARTNERS. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS SWAP SUCCESSFULLY FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW.

clavriene 07/24/2015 #

just voicing out my concerns that is all, chill, no need to caps me lol..I've been flaked before by a swap partner who refused to post her swap because it's too expensive but she was well aware she joined an international swap.

snailmailer1 07/26/2015 #

Please remember to send out your swap on time. I've heard every excuse under the sun. If you've followed the instructions correctly, you'll already have wrapped this swap and it'll be ready to post.
