USA only (this time), newbies welcome, as long as you have a complete profile.

WOW! I do love browsing through a dollar store! For one thing, I never know what I might find!

For this swap, you will have two partners. (That means you will get two ratings!) Completely sender's choice, go browsing through a dollar store, and find four unusual/cute/colorful items, for $1.00 each. So spend $4.00 total (This also includes finding things in a dollar bin in places like Target or Walmart)

You will send two items to each of your two partners. For now, this is US only, but may consider a variation of it, for an international swap.

most important, have FUN with this!

Any questions, please just ask or message me.

Will you angel if someone doesn't send?

gramsbuttonbox 04/ 7/2018 #

I will always angel my swaps, but I certainly would not want 40+ swappers telling me they need to take advantage...

Good point gramsbuttonbox!

I have returned to Swap-Bot because I miss receiving things in the mail. I am looking forward to this swap.

gramsbuttonbox 04/16/2018 #

welcome back - there are lots of us who took a break...I always knew I would return, and hope you have fun with this!

I have signed up for this swap but I have a question. I noticed one of the descriptive words up top of the swap says Paper Goods. Are we expected to stick to that category? Please advise luckylynnl

gramsbuttonbox 04/19/2018 #

not at all....the only "stick to it" part, is that the items cost $1.00...I just added that line, for anyone who wonders what kinds of things to find in a dollar store....this is not a "limited" swap at all! i hope everyone has FUN with it!

I updates my information in hope to have a successful first swap, I'm exited

MissBrenda 04/24/2018 #

In the swap, it says "find four cute, unusual..." items and then a bit further down it says send two items two each of your two partners. Please clarify. Thanks!

MissBrenda 04/24/2018 #

Or are you saying, spend a total of $4 on your 2 partners?

gramsbuttonbox 04/25/2018 #

not at all....altogether, you find FOUR items (and spend $4.00) - then for the swap, you will have TWO partners - - you send two items to EACH of them - (for a total of $4.00) - i hope that helps

gramsbuttonbox 04/25/2018 #

and you can send the two partners the SAME two things

Hello! I would love to join in this. Does my profile look alright? I just joined the page a few mins ago

gramsbuttonbox 04/26/2018 #

hi, thanks for asking - you have a pretty good start, but please add more to it - - your swap partners want to get to know you -

I have always said - when I open your profile page, I should have to scroll down to read it.

I look forward to reading what you will write.

for all of us, we edit and tweak our profiles over the years, as our interests change, or we learn some new fun craft - you can write about anything - -

there are some excellent tabs in swapbot, or just come up with y our own ideas.

this must be done before partners are assigned, so please put some thought and time into adding to yours.

Dayleenlopez 04/26/2018 #

Alright thank you! :D

Denisejennings 04/29/2018 #

How do you add to profile thanks

gramsbuttonbox 05/ 1/2018 #

Denise - - you click on your own swap ID - that will bring up your own profile - at the top of the page, will be a link, (in RED), to "edit your profile - there are some great tabs in swapbot, or just make up your own.

have fun with it1
