Okay ladies, it's time to buckle down and do a real destash!

Go through your craft supplies, mail art ephemera, and the like and start stuffing a package. This is sender's choice, so there is no need to be profile-specific. However, if you have the stuff in your stash, feel free to include profile-related things.

This swap should be done 100% out of items you already have at home. They can be new or gently used. Do not send trash! Ephemera is not the same as trash and I think we can all distinguish the difference. Nothing dirty or stinky.

The package you fill up should be at least a 9x12 flat rate envelope (the $6.70 one). You may choose to fill up a bigger package but the flat rate envelope is the minimum requirement.

As this is a sender's choice swap that can be packaged prior to my assigning partners, keep in mind you may recieve things you don't want - or even things that are on your 'dislike' list.

Requirements to Join

  • 4.98 or higher rating
  • USA address
  • Females only (for personal reasons)
  • A minimum of 50 completed & rated "real mail" swaps - sorry for such a high number of completed swaps but this is the time of year for flakers so I'm attempting to keep them out while also doing a public swap.
  • Last log in must be within 2 days before I assign partners.
  • No 1's owned to active members, no 1's within the past 6 months.
  • No unexplained 1's or 3's (if your explanation is not on your profile or in the rating comment, PM me before signing up for the swap to explain).
  • No 3's within the past 3 months.
  • Not be listed as a bad/questionable swappers in the public forums or Flakers group.

I reserve the right to ban anyone for any (or no) reason. I will be heavily vetting this swap since we are in "that time of year". I also will angel this swap if anyone does inadvertently get flaked on once they have attempted communication with the partner, rated the appropriate 1, and sent me a PM. I vet partners a minimum of once a day and again immediately before I assign partners.

This sounds like fun but this "last log in" thing has caused me problems before in rainy/cloudy weather. I have satellite internet and live in WV, where internet via satellite depends entirely upon weather and the power company! I was tossed from a swap not long ago when we had a week of steady rain and a power outage, making it impossible to get online. Those of you who live in "cable or wifi internet land" have no idea how the rest of us cope!!

@KarenLaneWV I've had to rely on satellite internet before and I totally feel your pain! Knowing your situation and seeing that you have been a longtime swappers, I would make an exception. :)

All participants up to this moment have been vetted. :-) Looking forward to swapping with everyone!
