    Swaps between Members

    To keep the "side swaps" from deterring from the main "Whatchagot Swap", I am starting this thread.

    This is for swapping between 2 members only.

    Any member can list what they have available to swap. They also need to list a "wish" list. This way, as members scan what you have to swap, they can see what you are looking for. You can also modify your lists by editing your post.

    Your lists can consist of anything reasonable. Chicks, eggs, home canned goods, fabric, candles, soap, plants, hand made anything....whatever you have you would like to trade or are "wishing" for [​IMG]


    TO SWAP:
    *Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in the color named "XYZ". I have three 5 oz skeins available.
    *Prickly Pear Cactus plants.
    *Homemade cloth napkins in "kitchen-y" prints. Set of 4.

    *Blue Orpington hatching eggs
    *Pickling/Canning jars
    *Vintage handkerchiefs

    Anyone that reads through the thread, may see they have something on my wish list, and I have something on my "to swap" list. They can then PM me to arrange the swap.

    You will need to keep your lists up to date at all times, in order that people know what you have/are looking for presently.

    Please keep this honest. If you make an agreement to swap, ship your items in a timely manner. Treat your swapper as you would like to be treated.

    Remember that this swap thread is being started by me and Backyard Chickens is not responsible in any way for the swaps being conducted.

    I will edit/modify this post as I see fit along the way.

    I also reserve the right to end this Swap Shop at any time I feel it isn't working out.

    Oooh... I LOVE side swaps [​IMG]

    For Trade:

    El Paso Chile Company Quesadilla Maker - This thing's awesome for quick lunches, got it around the holidays last year. Used it alot when the toddler was a newborn. It's a deep red, the pic washes it out. It really is pretty, would work great for a southwestern themed kitchen [​IMG]

    Hitachi Mini DVD Camcorder
    - Almost 3 years old. Works fantastically. Has 16x optical zoom and 240x digital zoom. It takes an SD memory card, so it can take pictures as well. Comes with the battery charger, battery, neck strap and outlet cord to film while it's plugged into the outlet.


    Wilderness Legend - Guide To Grizzly Bears

    The Complete Hunter- Duck Hunting, Understanding Ducks & Habitat

    Mule Deer Country - Understanding Mule Deer (no book jacket)

    The Freshwater Angler's Guide to Trout

    The Complete Hunter - Understanding Upland Game Birds


    I went threw our VHS collection. We haven't had a VCR in years, so I have no idea why I keep lugging these from house to house. LOL

    All with boxes, in decent or new condition:

    Winnie the Pooh: Pooh Wishes
    Charles Dickens- The Old Curiosity Shop
    Apollo 13
    Jack London's - White Fang
    The Mummy
    Marty Stouffer's- Photographing Wildlife
    King Arthur (the newer one with Clive Owen)
    White Wolves, Cry in the Wild
    Shoot to Kill (older)
    The Replacements
    The Santa Clause
    Days of Thunder (Tom Cruise)
    Deep Blue Sea
    Cool Hand Luke
    Blue Streak
    The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (Jim Carrey)
    Fern Gully

    Probably have a ton more, just need to find that other box. LOL

    For the dvd cam, I would like multiples of the following since it's considerably more expensive.


    Any breed of Turkey Eggs
    Blue, Black or Splash Orpington Eggs
    Black East Indie Duck Eggs
    Cayuga Duck Eggs
    Silver Appleyard Duck Eggs
    Pekin Duck Eggs
    Any breed of Peafowl Eggs

    (by the way, I'm not asking for a full dozen of any of these, just a handful [​IMG])

    Oh and one for the DH... A working copy of Halo 3 for Xbox 360, since the kids scratched his and he hasn't replaced it yet.

    (I'll find more to trade later, I'm in the middle of redoing the kids room. Waiting on paint to dry.)
