It's time for another Michaels swap! I l-o-v-e the $1 bins at Michaels. One can find bling, stamps, ink pads, bookmarks, notecards, journals, ribbon and much, much more! For this swap, you will hit the $1 bins at Michaels (or Hobby Lobby or the craft store in your area) and select 5 items for your 1 partner. While this swap is not strictly profile specific, check your partner's profile and make sure you're not purchasing a bunch of bookmarks for a person who doesn't read. Go for variety. There's so much to choose from! Package your items and ship to your partner. Include a "hello" note with your swap name and the name of the swap. Have fun!

The rules: 10 completed and rated mail swaps (Types 2 & 3). 4.9 rating required and a well-filled out profile. Lower ratings require explanation for ones and threes. Send me a private message.

Please note: This is not a swap for $1 store goodies. While there might be some great things at $1 stores, many people don't like $1 store items.

I get so ticked with the fact that what is $1 in the US Michaels, is $1.50 in Canada even though our dollar is still higher!

sarachung 07/ 3/2011 #

@ toothteri -- that is a curiosity, perhaps it has to do with the shipping costs, import taxes from your country, etc. that raises the cost, and not necessarily a reflection of the value of the canadian dollar vs. the US dollar?

@tootheri -Also, I learned with the last Michaels $1 bin swap that some of the Michaels here in the U.S. have raised the $1 bins to $1.50.

Great time to have a Michaels $1 b in swap. The tower baskets just got new stuff.

Goldfoxxe 07/ 5/2011 #

Yeah, all the Michaels stores around my neck of the woods have raised them to $1.50...they try and make it seem better by writing 2/$3 on them haha!

My michaels is still $1.00 I was just there and they have a lot of new stuff for $1 and some for less. Had too much fun!!

I love the 1 dollar bins and Im excited to participate.

Even though Target isn't a "craft" store, I've found some good crafty items in their $1/$2 bins--I just found some rubber stamps and note pads in my local Target's bins. Just an idea as another place to look!

Nnyla 07/ 8/2011 #

@catnipitis -Be careful about the Target items. I've purchased some of those $1 bin items in the past. Some are great quality--others not.

ADDozier 07/ 9/2011 #

I am so excited. GO MICHAELS!!!

HistoryNerd 07/11/2011 #

RadicalRecrafter 07/11/2011 #

The Jo-Ann Fabrics store has some darling $1.00 items ! So does ACMoore. I'm definitely in for this swap!

Megbomb 07/12/2011 #

My Michaels is also 2/$3

catnipitis 07/13/2011 #

@nnyla -so far I've been lucky. All the things I've gotten in the Target bins have been good...knock on wood! :)

I LOVE this swap!! It is so much fun picking out what you hope your partner will like! I hope this swap continues to go on. The $1 bins are still a $1 here in Pa

scottishrosefaerie 07/17/2011 #

I noticed that here too northqueen, and I'm also in South Jersey. Boo for it being 1.50..so lame.

bluecrayons 07/18/2011 #

1.50 really aint that bad when your getting the acrylic stamps and there is 7-8 in one pack.
