    Okay... Here we go.
    Please PM me if you see an additions to the guidelines that should be added.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Rules
    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.
    The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.

    Rules:
    1. Swaps will be for handmade items or craft materials/supplies only. Eggs are on another thread. Side swaps of egg for craft items can be accomplished through PMs.

    2. An initial offering of a handmade item/supplies will be made. Any member can accept and replace the offer with a handmade item of their own. You are responsible for the cost of shipping your own item.

    3. All items need to fall in the $10-20 value range so that all things stay equal (And I think that the price should include the cost of your time, not just the cost of materials).

    3. Please post pictures of your hand crafted item so people know what they are trading on.

    4. Please make arrangements to ship your item within a week or two of the swap, unless different arrangements are made with your swap partner. Shipping must be done via USPS Priority Mail, or if you prefer a similar service with another carrier.

    9. Anyone not upholding their end of the swap agreement, either by sending the item, or by sending shipping cost if they couldnt fulfill their swap for whatever reason, will not be allowed to participate further.

    10. You can post feedback to the thread when you have received your item. Please only post good feedback. If you are having problems with your swap, please PM me, and we will try and resolve it.

    Ready? GO!

    I'll start us off by offering two pairs of knitted baby booties. I can make these for you in white, pink, blue, pink with white trim, blue with white trim, white with pink trim or white with blue trim. See a theme there? [​IMG]

    The pictures shows one pair in pink with white trim.

    Just checking to make sure we are all on the same page. You are taking the booties and offering the rooster earrings?
    (I'm not sure the instructions at the top make sense. Are they clear on the process or do I need to re-write them?)

    Beat me. I've only ever seen the egg swaps on here. They generally work like this:
    Me- I offer 6 buff orps
    Person2- I take the buffs and offer 6 barred rocks
    Person 3- I take the rocks and offer 6 seremas
    etc, etc, etc...
    That way you are getting something and giving something both (except for the first person).

    I just figured that's how this one would run. It doesn't have to. If we just randomly offer stuff up there would be the chance that you would offer something and not get a craft in return or that you would get a craft and not offer anything. It might get a little unbalanced. Dunno. [​IMG]

    I will offer a medium purse with design of your choice. Let me know what design and color you'd like it to be. It doesn't have to be camo. It can be on whatever color you'd like. Thanks

    I'm confused. Are the booties taken? and the next offer is the med bag?. The way I understand this is the 1st offer of the booties is to get things started and citygirl does not recieve an item. the next person gets the booties and offers an item for the next person. ?????? What's the current offer?

    Quote:I was confused at first too but you are correct. Stitch-a-bility gets the booties and has offered up the purse. If you want the purse then you be the next in line and offer something up.

    So the current offer is the purse...

    Hi, after staff discussion, the decision has been made to put swaps in this forum.

    Since swaps are a social event, we feel it will help keep the Buy Sell Trade areas uncluttered.

    Thanks. [​IMG]
