    Shoebox Mystery Swap

    You don’t need to use a shoebox to send items, as a flat rate box will do just as well. But you do need to use your imagination and the information your partner shared with you in order to fill a box chock full of items he/she may be interested in. It could be anything, from scented candles and potpourri to postcards and small knick knacks to decorate the home. You can send something regional, or something you find unique and would like to share. Get creative.

    To not exclude anyone, international swappers are welcome to participate, and anyone who agrees to swap internationally must be ready for the price of shipping and the length of time it takes for the packages to be sent and received.

    Important Swap dates

    Sign up: May 13 to May 19
    Assigned partners: May 21
    Shipping deadline: June 9

    For this swap there are two separate budgets: $15 and $25. In the questionnaire I will send you, I will ask if you want to have the $15 budget or the $25 budget. Whichever budget you choose is going to help determine who your partners will be. If you do choose to go over the budget, it will be your choice, and is completely optional. Please don’t expect your partner to go over budget, as some people may choose to respect the budget they want to go with.

    After signing up, all participants will be required to post in this thread for the following:

    1) You answered the questionnaire
    2) Contacted your partner
    3) Sent your package
    4) Received your partner’s package

    Please read the rules and policies of swapping, and make sure you understand them. If you have any questions on what the rules and policies mean, please zmail me about them. If you’re not sure about participating in this swap, or you feel like something has come up, let me know before the partners are announced.

    I don't want to be a boring host! icon_eek.gif I'm a little nervous actually. It's my first time hosting a swap, especially on my own. There were a lot of ideas I had in order to get people chatting so all the participants would get to know each other.

    One of the things I wanted to get people to talk about was their past experiences with swaps, especially if they participated in a previous Shoebox Mystery Swap. Hopefully swappers would like to pass on tips, share ideas on where to shop, and welcome the new swappers.

    For me, big chain stores (like Walmarts and Costco) are really great places to go for shopping. I like to keep track of all the flyers that come to my home, so I know what's on sale.
