You all seem to like doing this so I will set it up again for number 5. Go to a thriftstore or even a garage sale and find something for your swapper. Good idea to look at her profile and get an idea about her but it is okay to send something you may think she would like because you like it too. Nothing dirty or cracked. Spend any amount you like on it. You can always regift if you don't like what they send.
This is not to see how much a person spends, it is about having fun looking for something that may please the swapper.

Newbies are welcomed as long as their profile is filled out.

You guys sure do like this swap. Good results so far and I do keep my eye on it for flakers, so don't fret. Now we need all those watching it to join in.

Gosh, I would so love to do this swap, as I love thrift stores and such, but I was flaked on from the last one, so I guess I have a not-so-great feeling about it...I was really looking forward to getting something in the last one.

...I will wait and watch..maybe see who's in the swap and make sure my flaker isn't signed up...

I would happily be an angel to anyone in this swap that gets flaked on. Love thrift stores and the scrap exchange so looking forward to this one.

I swapped a scarf and my partner swapped me a scarf. LOL

Hi to ladydy5, I'm looking forward to this swap. From context, I gather I'm a "newbie" and that people that don't hold up their end are "flakers" -- don't worry, THIS "newbie" is low-key, but not a "flaker." (Couldn't seem to directly respond to your earlier message, so doing it here.)

Retrotronik 06/ 7/2010 #

hmmm..... this seems like a good idea. i think i meet your requirements, so i join.

ladydy5 06/ 8/2010 #

Please know that I am always watching the participants for those that might not have a profile listed. I do have wonderful people that angel also but newbies do need a chance too. Glennasgarden: Sometimes that does happen, hope you weren't too disappointed. Please remember that this is a fun swap.

I'm pretty excited about this one. Austin has a lot of thrift stores...hope I find my partner something good!!

ladydy5 06/ 9/2010 #

Getting closer that swap date. Checked everyone so far, so don't let me down newbies. Be putting up #6 after the due date on this one. Can't get over being #3 top dog. Wow!

I'd love to see a swap like this open to International, I know that postage costs really put people off posting items over seas, which is such a shame. Im a newbie here and just going through the list of swaps. Hi everyone!

JayEm 06/10/2010 #

Hey! There's a BUNCH of rummage sales and thrift stores in my area right now, so I thought this would be a good first swap! :) Such a cool idea! :)

ladydy5 06/11/2010 #

I want you all to know that I banned two swappers, one because of a very limited profile and the other because I got notified she is a flaker and I don't want to put that on someone who is willing to send. The list is now up.

Whiskers 06/11/2010 #

I have had this happen before: I opened the "see the partner you send to" made some notes and went to her page and sent a message telling her that I would be mailing her box on Monday. Well... now I can't get back into the "see the partner you send to" to get her mailing address. What is going on here? Was my partner a flaker and removed? I have had that happen to me before also.

ladydy5 06/16/2010 #

No, because I got her address. Swap bot does not remove anyone after the swap closes, it is up to me as the coordinator to research BEFORE that occurs. Why you can't click on "partners to send to" is beyond me. No one else had that problem?

ladydy5 06/28/2010 #

Today is Mond. the 28th of June. So far I have 14 swappers with a no-send yet. Here's hoping you all get your swaps. I fear I may need to angel some of them and may need help if there are that many who do not send. You all have been good about sending that I see have.

sarahmade19 06/29/2010 #

i still haven't received anything from my partner. =[

minniemack 07/ 2/2010 #

This was a really fun swap. Thank you!!

sambob 07/ 7/2010 #

I never got anything my person will not answer messages. It states she sent on 6-17 hmm

ladydy5 07/ 8/2010 #

There are some wonderful people in this swap. I heard from three who are going to take care of angelling to the three who were flaked on. Now I see that sambob didn't receive so I will angel to her.
