So I've only recently been introduced into the wonderful world of Etsy.com, and I am HOOKED! So I decided to combine my two new loves (Swap-bot and Etsy)!

For this swap, you will send your partner something from their Etsy favs, valuing between $10-$12 (not including shipping). This could be multiple small surprises, or one bigger one.

Please make sure you have your Etsy favs link posted (and the link works) in your profile somewhere, or post it in the comments section below. You should also make sure to update your favs so that there are a variety of active (not sold) items of different values for your partner to choose from - the more specific the listing, the better (so that your partner doesn't have to guess your preferences for scents, colors, etc). And again, this is Etsy-only (no other fav/wish lists). Since this shouldn't be too complicated of a swap, it should be a pretty quick turnaround. You can request that the seller ships the item(s) directly to your partner.

Due to the nature/value of this swap, participants must have a minimum of 10 rated PACKAGE swaps (roughly valued at $5 or higher). Swappers must have minimum 4.9 rating, and no no-sends. If you feel you have been rated unfairly, please PM and we can chat. I will ban anyone that seems shady, and anyone that has not logged in within two days of sign-up deadline. Feel free to contact me with questions!

I'm so with you, I'm totally obsessed with etsy. It's become a problem haha. I always sign up for these swaps!!

Me too, addicted is an understatement! Don't forget that even if an item is sold on your partners favorites list, it doesn't mean that the seller doesn't have another of the same item. I've done tons ofthese swaps and have purchased sold items from the seller once they have relisted it;)

@agonysdecay - totally true, and there's always a risk of things being high turnover. I always try to check and update my favs with the relisted/current item (yes, I'm a nerd!)

bettflow09 07/27/2009 #

Yes, that right @agonysdecay !! Most of the items I have in my favorites will be able to be bought from the seller even when it says "sold". Gosh.....I have become so totally hooked on Etsy:))) Putting this in my watch for now but will plan on joining after I clear out some swaps in the next few days.

One more thing - please make sure you ask the seller to include a note to your partner with your Swap-Bot username and the name of the swap!

Thanks for letting me join! I too enjoy both Etsy and Swap-bot. This should be fun.

Just a note to those who don't have their etsy favs on their profile: to share the link, go to your favorites list, and up in the right corner (below preferences) click on "share." At the bottom of the little pop-up will be a direct link to your etsy favs. Copy and paste! :o)

this is a dangerous one!!!! I LOOOVE Etsy!! (MrsGlass there)

I'd love to join this one... BUT, I have a question... is there enough time between the time we get our partner, and the time it has to be sent out to order, receive, repackage, and mail out to our partner??? I've never done a swap like this.. but would LOVE to!!!

I'm soo addicted to Etsy!!!

Thanks so much

@cinderella730 You can have the seller on Etsy ship the item(s) directly to your partner. This will save time, shipping costs, etc. Also have them include a note with your Swap-Bot name and the name of the swap!
