This is an e-mail swap of the music you would play if you owned your own shop. The type of shop you own is completely up to you. It could be a coffee shop, a smokey blues club, a toy store, a French pâtisserie, a bookstore for rare and antique books, a record shop, or even a simple grocery store. You can use absolutely anything else you can think of.

Your email should include:

  • Your chosen name of your shop.
  • A playlist of at least 20 songs
  • A description of the overall atmosphere.
  • A description services or products you offer.
  • Five images that relate to your shop.

The images could be of your decor inspiration, what your staff would look like, what you sell in your shop, or even some packaging designs. I recommend using everyone's favourite image sharing site: Pinterest!

Your playlist can be created through Spotify or 8tracks. You could also use YouTube links but I don't recommend this method. If you do use YouTube, please make sure that your videos are in a playlist that can be listened to without clicking on individual links.

This swap is open to newbies and to those trying to increase their ratings. I will be happy to angel for anyone, if needed. This is my first time hosting so please be gentle!

If this swap is successful, I would like to host another one with a fantasy/fictional theme so you can share a playlist for your own potions shop, mythical creature pet shop, post-apocalyptic trading post, medieval tavern or a robotics repair shop. Let me know if this is something you would be interested in!

I love this idea but the playlist kinda throws me. I can write a lot about the shop but spending the time it takes to link up 20 songs is daunting as I've never done it and I use an iPhone. But it's a great idea and I'm watching in case you come up with a way around it for me. Maybe the song list could be shorter or we do t have to send the links, just name and artist?

Totally understandable, thebragal. I actually created this swap specifically to trade themed playlists and the rest of the idea came along naturally. I think that 20 songs is the right amount to really get a feel for what it would be like to spend an hour in the shop but I will consider a more creative writing based swap in the future.

I do everything from my iPhone too and I would recommend trying out the Spotify app which I find is incredibly easy to use for building playlists. You do have to create an account but you don't have to pay anything to listen to music or create playlists, the free version just includes ads and prevents downloading.
