Spring Bead swap?

Discussion in 'Hobbies' started by ShysCreations, Mar 15, 2012.

  1. If other beading BYCers are interested, I'd organize a swap for us. We had some last autumn & summer. Thought I'd send out a feeler to gauge interest....
    Would do it the same way....Have people email their name & address.....then shuffle all so that each has a partner....and send out the mailing info.

    What are the general guidelines? Do you go by $ value?
  3. I'm interested. I have an obsession with beads. LOL
  4. The dollar value was $15 or u can do more. I tended to need a cleanup of my bead box so had a plenty to send, maybe it fit another's project. how about we end the signup March 24, then I can send the shipping info for swap partners. Though the person who sends u beads may not be the one u send to. Say have your package sent in the first week of April?
    We don't want to leave anyone out who sent beads. So if signing up to participate, please follow thru.

  5. Oops, the $$ amount was $10. I found the former 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.

    ****~~~~Lets limit to a single swap rather than multiple, see how it goes~~~~****

    1) Entry deadline is March 24, 2012
    2) Value of beads/supplies may vary, preferably atleast $10.00 or whatever you deem as fair. It doesn't have to be all of one kind, we usually send a few beads of different kinds. Variety is fun!
    3) You are responsible for the shipping cost of what you send out. Though if you ship in a padded mailer it should only be a couple of dollars.
    4) Things that qualify are: glass beads, gemstones, chain, clasps, wire, gold and silver beads, etc. (please NO PLASTIC)
    5) Do not post hints of what you are sending. We all love surprises!
    6) Gifts must go out by April 7, 2012
    7) Send me a confirmation # when you ship your gift.
    8) Please post when you recieve your items and photos are encouraged.
    9) You may participate in this swap 1 time.
    10) If you would like to include the types of materials you would like the most, i.e- colors of beads, types of beads, etc. Then please include that in your post when you enter.

    Reply to this topic indicating you want to be included and then PM me with the following information.
    BYC Name:
    Shipping Name:

    If you cannot get your gift out on time please let me know and I will pass the information. I will try my best this is something for fun & enjoyment of all participating.

    Have fun and please play fair.

    I'll list the BYC names of those who PM'd me & wish to participate:
