All SWAPPERS will be challenged to go to your local craft store/craft aisle like in Walmart, etc. Only using the CLEARANCE section, you must find one item from each of the following categories:
You MUST buy these items from the CLEARANCE AISLE ONLY. If this is something you purchased in the past, and it falls into one of the categories, you can use it IF it still has the clearance sticker on the package. The Scavenger Hunt items must be NEW, in the package, unless it doesn't come in one (like a rubber stamp.) Remember, do not remove any tags or stickers. I need to see how cheap you are!
You must provide ONE item from each category. You CANNOT use Christmas Buttons for both plastic and Holiday. It has to be one or the other!
If you CANNOT find all of these items in your clearance section, then you need to scout out a dollar store, or a BIG LOTS. These need to be inexpensive! That's the other challenge part of this SWAP.
Keep your receipts. KEEP all tags and stickers on all packaging. Whomever buys ALL of the above Scavenger Hunt items, and spends the least amount of money, gets a bonus surprise from me! I will be keeping a tally of who has spent what. When all SWAPS have been received, I will announce the amount spent, and the winner of the challenge!
I am taking a spot in this one. Sounds to fun to not participate!
Keep in mind, the things you buy should be things that a Scrapbooker or Crafter would want to use. Don't buy it because it was the cheapest thing. Who wants flourescent green metal numbers? Somebody might, but that would not be a typical thing someone would want to use.
If you have any questions, please contact me here, or directly.
This is a crazy idea, but it will be a thrilling challenge.
