For swappers who are low on cash or have a growing stash of nice but unused/not-needed swap items.

The objective of this swap is to not spend any money to buy items for the swap but to send items you already have.

What to send? You will send at least 3 items, worthed about US$5, to your swap partner. (Of course you may send more to aim for hearts for your rating!)

Example of swap items can be but not limited to embroidery floss, fat quarters, assorted teas, stationery, postcards, stickers, etc.

Do take some time to read your partner's profile and find out what he/she likes or dislikes. Please take note that some countries, like Australia, do not allow teas in the mail.

Please do not send used items or "trash". A good guide will be to ask yourself if you will feel happy receiving it.

Who is eligible? This swap is open to international. Newbies are allowed ONLY with completed profile. The others need a rating 4.9 or higher. Sorry! I reserve the right to ban suspicious swappers.

If the day of assigning partners arrives and you haven't completed your profile you will have to be banned.

US prices on international mail have gone WAY up. Try to keep your things lightweight and stuffed into a padded envelope if you are shipping outside of the US to avoid astronomical postage costs on a swap that is supposed to be fun and economical.

Hi, newbie here, is that US$5 in total for the 3 items or US$5 per item? Thank you!!

Banshee 01/26/2009 #

US$5 in total

I really loved the last one. My partners package just arrived today. I can't wait to do this again.

I was in the last one and really enjoyed it; but not this time due to an EXTREMELY rude and mean person that has joined. Maybe next time for me too........
