Description:

The other six went very well, those few that flaked were angelled. It was amazing.
This like the others where you go to a thriftstore and find something for your swapper either checking their profile or just getting something you think is nice. It must be clean, not torn or nasty. Something you would like to get in return. No amount specified for you to spend, that is up to your sense of generosity. Just have fun with it. Really try to find something at a thriftstore near you and not just send something from a dollar store to cover your swap. Newbie are welcomed but i will check you out. This is only USA because of postage. If you get something you don't like just regift it sometime. Thanks to all who have followed in all six so far of these.

Just to let everyone know, I am watching profiles on newbies and so far they look okay. This swap always brings out the best in people. In case you don't received or get "flaked" on, there is always someone in the swap willing to angel it.

This swap sounds so great! Really glad to be taking part :) Can't wait to get my partner and go shopping for something really great :)

So is this a profile based swap??

ladydy5 08/ 9/2010 #

Inkheart, that would be advantagous to check profile but it is not necessary as I explained in the description.

ladydy5 08/ 9/2010 #

I hope all understand that this is a USA only swap. I had to eliminate one from overseas as I expect she didn't see the USA in the title.

@ladydy5 Thank you! ^_^ Just needed a little more clarity.

This sounds like a nice swap! I just joined swap-bot.. And this will be my first swap! I adore country primitves.

ladydy5 08/10/2010 #

I want you all to be aware that I look at all swappers profiles. One swapper has a 4.7 which I generally do not like to have participate but after reading her ratings which were unfair as far as I am concerned and her great ratings recently I am letting her in. If I get dissappointed then I will angel to her swapper.

You said not to just go to the dollar store and buy something. What if it's a dollar store item that was bought at the thrift store?

ladydy5 08/14/2010 #

That is okay because that sometimes happens. Just take off the dollar store label.

ladydy5 08/14/2010 #

I have asked one more person to drop out with a 4.0 rating. I also kept one that has no rating because I had a good feeling she would not flake. However, her profile is a little weak and I asked her to fill it out more but I will let her swap.
90 swappers so far, thats the most I have had on this swap, thank you and hope all gets sent.

ladydy5 08/15/2010 #

Names are up, lets go shopping.

BambooBailey 08/15/2010 #

I have a partner with a very minimal profile - can I message them for info? There is nothing on the profile about likes or dislikes. Beth I just want to send something nice and wanted.

littleAnnsmama 08/15/2010 #

I think if I recvd a message I wouldn't mind- my pal has lots on her profile tho so I hope to find something she will like that she mentioned, since it is an extensive profile :)

RobbinB 08/18/2010 #

Ladydy5 - Quick question - A stupid one too, probably - but are we supposed to leave the price tags off of our thrift store stuff? The reason I am asking is that part of the fun of thrifting is the amazing prices on stuff. But then on the other hand, I don't want to seem like I didn't spend enough money either - What to do, what to do.
Thanks - Robbin

littleAnnsmama 08/18/2010 #

Great question, Robbin. Has anyone rcvd their swap & did it have anything to do with your likes on your profile? I found my partner's today- it was specifically something she likes, so I'm glad for that ;)

ladydy5 08/20/2010 #

Robbin - You can do whatever you want about price sticker.

ladydy5 08/20/2010 #

Littleannsmama: I received mine and yes it did have something to do with my profile. Remember, sometimes you can't find something related so send something really neat. Remember if you get something then it is rated 5.

Onyx 08/26/2010 #

I got mine today from littleannsmama and I appreciated the fact that she read my profile :).

ladydy5 08/26/2010 #

Monday is the 30th and the send date. I am not nervous about it because I know all these swappers are great and woould never try to disspoint me or their swapper. Just want to give all a heads up on this.

ladydy5 08/31/2010 #

Yesterday was the send date and right now we have 14 swappers that have not shown they sent yet. Yikes! Please don't make me angel all of those. Please send.

ladydy5 09/ 2/2010 #

Nine out of 99 have not sent, great odds so far.. I do have a feeling I may need a couple of angels so let me know if you can do that.

ladydy5 09/18/2010 #

Had just one that said she sent but it was never received. I had the good luck of having a swapper on #8 swap offer to send. What a great bunch of people in this world!
