I just discovered this. Which is a coincidence, as I was just discussing cultural swaps with someone earlier. I am hoping to make a cultural swap soon.
Things I can offer to potential swapees:
- Knitted things
- Small, strange looking things made of felt
- Scottish things
- British candy/sweets
- Monkey related items
- Paper things – stationery, stickers
- British magazines
- Craft supplies – yarn, beads, fabric
- Funky stuff
- Words of (faux) wisdom
Things I’d like to receive
- Monkey things
- Sock monkey related items
- Savoury snacks/candy
- Green apple flavour Extra chewing gum
- Things from Old Navy
- Japanese cuteness
- Japanese childrens reading books/school books
I am a crafter, so crafty things are always a winner for me. I am a big fan of all things Japanese and cute and am currently (trying to) learn to speak Japanese. Oh, and candy of course. Oh, and I don’t have my ears pierced, so no earrings!
Although new to this swapping stuff, I do know what I don’t want to do. I don’t want to be going round shops with a shopping list for you. I want to “swap” things I already have with you or stuff I can make/easily obtain.
Holding down a full time job and running my own business means I don’t have the time to go hunting round Top Shop – that’s what Ebay’s for people! If there is a thing you specifically want, then I will try and get it, but I’m afraid I can’t accommodate specific but vague demands – e.g. one brass rubbing of a shire horse with a green frame. 🙂
