If you like cute coin purses, then this swap is for you!

In this swap, we will be stuffing one zippered coin purse full of goodies for our partners. The coin purse cannot be a plain solid color. Think CUTE! There must be at least three items in the coin purse, ONE from EACH of the following categories; make-up items, jewelry items, and "other" items. You are welcome to send more if you can make it fit!

Make-up item examples: lip gloss pots, small vials of perfume, individual eyeshadows.

Jewelry item examples: earrings, rings, brooches, and pendants.

Other item examples: ribbon, buttons, stickers.

(If you send buttons or stickers, be sure to send at least four.)

Coin purse, make-up and earrings MUST be new and unused! Must be brand new, bought or handmade. Used or thrifted rings, brooches, and pendants are OKAY, but must be properly CLEANED and not dirty or broken before sending. NO TRASH. NO dollar store/section stuff. If you have ribbon, buttons, and stickers in your stash that you want to send, that is acceptable. Please only send what you would like to receive! I am not putting a monetary value on this because some of you might make the items, use items from your stash, or thrift for jewelry.

SENDER'S CHOICE, BUT If you are sending a ring, try to send a nice adjustable one (no coin machine toys!), or get your partner's ring size. If you have metal allergies, please do not join because there is a chance you might get something you are allergic to.

So, to sum it all up:

To your swap partner, you must send:

  • 1 CUTE zippered coin purse, sized about 4' x 3' inches, no smaller.
  • 1 make-up item, 1 jewelry item, and 1 "other" item; a TOTAL of 3 items in all, stuffed inside the coin purse. (You are welcome to send more if you can make it fit!)
  • A nice note for your partner so they know who you are! :)

Please package carefully! If you think any make-up items might leak, wrap it in a bit of plastic wrap before you put it in the coin purse! PLEASE use bubble wrap if you are sending in an envelope just in case it gets crushed! It might be best to use a small box for this one if you can, otherwise just package it with extra care.


  • NO swappers with a rating below 4.7 will be allowed to join.
  • NO 1 ratings at all, and no 3s in the last six months.
  • You must have at least 10 completed and rated Type 3 swaps.

I will ban anyone who looks suspicious at all. I want everyone to have a good swap experience.

(If you buy an item and realize it doesn't fit into the coin purse or that it may get damaged or damage another item while inside the coin purse, it is OKAY to package it properly and send it outside of the coin purse. Just try to put what you can into the coin purse without damaging any items. :)

Just so there is no confusion, cute can be anything that is cute to you, it doesn't have to be considered a "kawaii" coin purse. This is not a "kawaii" swap.

This is really interesting, how nice if it's international swap...

BarkleysMommy 12/ 7/2010 #

I'm concerned about the low 4.7 requirement, but this fun swap in on my watchlist :-)

SusanSpooky 12/ 8/2010 #

I do not let anyone suspicious looking join in on the swap! I should probably put that anyone with a one rating cannot join, I am going to change that now.

showniez 12/ 8/2010 #

uh uh. . . Could this be international?

evitake 12/ 8/2010 #

yessssssssss int plzzzzzzz

reauk 12/ 8/2010 #

its not fair you put no one with a 1 rateing allowed... some people have a 1 rateing thru no fault of there own...

Ryleighsmom 12/ 8/2010 #

It is fair because it's her swap. =) Maybe you can do a similiar one, reauk, if you want to include people who have 1's. =)

mumbles17 12/ 8/2010 #

can you make the coin purse?

SusanSpooky 12/ 9/2010 #

I don't plan on making an international version myself, but I did get a message from @kleedawn asking if she could host one. I said she could, so look for that. :)

@reauk I am sorry, I do realize sometimes people get 1s when it isn't their fault. I still stand by my swap requirements because sometimes it can be hard to sort out the ones who are at fault and the ones who aren't. I am choosing to do that for this swap because the expense could add up to over $10 before shipping for some people especially if they buy everything, and I wanted this swap to be a bit more safe. Not all my swaps are like that.

@mumbles17 -You can make the coin purse, yes!!!! Just make sure it is made well. :)

Watching for now..but will probably join when I get a few more things done this weekend for Christmas!

SusanSpooky 12/10/2010 #

Here's a hint: The sign-up ends before Christmas, and the send-outs are after Christmas. There are going to be after Christmas sales. I know make-up and jewelry goes on sale, so maybe that will be helpful! We might even find nice coin purses on sale! Well, as long as it isn't Christmas themed. Awesome! ;)

I hope someone hosts this again when I have more ratings so I can join. Nice swap idea!

zigg13pra 12/18/2010 #

Very cute swap, too bad I cant join.

SusanSpooky 12/22/2010 #

Partners are assigned!

weeatcrayons 12/22/2010 #

You put a 4.7 on there but the only way to have that low of a rating is to have bad ratings. Whether you wanted to or not...your swap is misleading. Next time try setting it 4.9 or a solid 5.
