Number of swap partners:1


1 partner, 1 letter + list, and 2 handbag items sent and received!

• "Come on, admit it, we all carry around am amazing amount of rubbish in our purses. This is a swap to amuse each other and to improve our habits." (This swap is adapted from @ukquilter ).

Part 1:

• Tip out your purse just as it is (no prior tidying up allowed!). Then, in a letter, list exactly what is in there. The truth must be told!

• Write a little bit about why some of those things are in your bag. Overall, the letter should be at least 2 pages on some cute or pretty stationery.

Part 2:

• Send your partner two of the items on the list below that should normally be in a handbag. No duplicates or doubling-up of items please. For example, sending two different lip glosses would not be counted as two items.

• Make sure these items are profile-based. Use your imagination! Item must be brand new, store bought, and $6 minimum spending.

Pick 2 from the following to send to your partner!


Cosmetics bag

Lip gloss

Lip balm

Cute key fob


Coin purse

Cute pen + pencil (non-generic)

1 piece of make-up like eye shadow, blush, etc.

Hand lotion

Hair accessory

Cute printed band-aids

Additional Info:

• If you have any trouble with anything, let your partner know - and myself - immediately so we can figure out the problem before the send date.

• Partners should receive a 5 rating if at least a 2 page letter is sent (from the requirements above), 2 handbag items, and was sent on time!

• Sorry, no newbies, or ratings lower than 4.9! Must have completed at least 10 Type 3 mailed and well-rated swaps to join, and no recently unexplained 1's or 3's! I will check profiles. Flakers will be banned from all of my future swaps!

Hi, I'm kind of new, but have done some swaps and am pretty current with them..........this is my new favorite hobby, so I promise I won't flake and will be good. So, can I join please? As an extra bonus, I promise my partner will get a third purse item that is not common in purses, but is very useful.........and no, it's nothing dirty or anything like that, it's something I always have in my purse no matter how big or small.

@ReneeinPittsburgh - sorry, this is to protect swappers in my swaps. I will be hosting this again in the future, so hopefully by then you will have enough completed ratings to join!

@oliviarrow - it's the same basic markdown codes that you can use to modify your profile with!
