Description:

The previous "Museum Goodies" swap I hosted went great, and I had said that I would host another one, so here it is!

I love to go to museums, and after having seen the collections, could never resist paying a little visit to the lovely museum shops.

For this swap, you will visit your local art museum, drop by the store and send to one (1) partner:
• two (2) blank postcards
• one (1) bookmark
• one (1) pencil
• one (1) item of your choice < $4
• Optional: a note describing your experience, background information about the art or museum, free ephemera from your visit (ticket, prospectus, map, exhibition calendar, adversiting postcard)

Please note:
• Art exclusively, from ancient to contemporary eras. No natural history, science, military or other museums, unless your partner's profile stipulates an undying love for one of these types of museums.
• You could visit your partner's profile to see their preferred styles or artists, but it's absolutely not required.
• Items could be from several different museums.
• It is best if you have visited the museum(s) yourself, rather than having collected the items from relatives or previous swaps. But ultimately, nobody will check.
• Swappers with a rating ≥ 4.9, at least one type 2 swap experience, and no recent or unexplained 1. Banning suspicious swappers is my prerogative. I don't want any participant to be flaked on. Let's keep this swap fun and flaking-free!
• Also, please don't join if you are offended by artistic nudes. A lot of the most tasteful paintings, sculptures and photographs feature nude bodies that you might receive. On the other hand, don't get too trashy and send offensive contemporary art! This is not the point.
• Please send to your partner in timely fashion, and rate accordingly when you receive your package. You should rate a 5 if you get within a reasonable amount of time the five compulsory items in new and unused condition. Heart at your own discretion.

I'd like to do this as I visit art galleries on a fairly regular basis, but I'm still a newbie... could you let me know if there's a #3 as I'd probably fit criteria by then. Am off to the Whitworth gallery on saturday :)

I want to say to the person sending my swap, I like fridge magnets (but of course it is your choice) Can't wait!!!

As you can imagine, there are tons of history museums here in Plymouth (with cute shops!) so let me know if you ever do another swap that includes other types of museums. Great idea!

Awesome! So glad I can join this swap this time! :) To my person – I don't mind Science or history museums (especially ancient egyptian history! <3) but I'm okay for anything. Can't wait to do this!!
