This one is for you serious ephemera collectors (re:hoarders) such as myself. We are going to swap real, genuine VINTAGE ephemera (NO reproductions, like Tim Holtz style stuff).

You will have 1 partner, to whom you will send 5 pieces of real vintage ephemera, from the 1950's or older. The older the better. You could send: photos, book pages, tickets, receipts, cards, matchbooks, postcards (Used or unused), recipe cards, postage stamps, etc etc. With vintage items some age showing is to be expected (yellowing pages, creased corners, etc), but please don't send anything in really bad shape to your partner. Make sure the items are usable. (ie - a creased corner on a photo is no biggie, but a crease down the middle would be yuck.) If in doubt, feel free to ask :)

Please send only 1 type of each item to your partner. So, for example, one photo, one greeting card, a receipt, a book page, and a train ticket. If you decide to send your partner some extras, then feel free to send multiples of the same type of items, as long as the 5 different pieces requirement is met.

So, to recap:

  • One partner

  • 5 different pieces of ephemera in usable condition

  • 1950s or older

Swap is SENDER'S CHOICE, so you can go ahead and start getting your envies ready when you sign up. :)

Since this swap is in group, I don't think there should be any issues, but if it happens that I need to, I will angel. <3
