Posted by Maureen on June 9, 2002 at 03:55:21:Hi,
This is an idea I have been thinking of for some time. I have a lot
of items from my shop and just things I have accumulated of some time
and would be interested in setting up a way to arrange swaps and
barters with others who may also have some items of interest. Thought
that maybe some henna forum folks might be interested and have
interesting items to exchange.
Some of the things I have are incense sticks, small brass poison
bottles that are to be attached to chains, other jewelry, gold nail
charms with the rings, false fingernails, nail polish, nail stencils,
lots of other stencils, rubber stamps, craft books, craft projects
for children (lots of those), quilting books and quilting patterns
and templates, some snuff bottles, lots of assorted cloth material
for quilting or doll making, rug hook and cross stitch sets, beads,
an assortment of "dress-up" clothes for little girls, scratch art
paper, various art supplies for children, glass etching stencils,
muslim rag dolls in assorted sizes, and a lot of other things.
I am not interested in selling them but we could barter a combinatin
of money and items. I would be interested in swapping some of these
items with people who have other things I might be interested in.
I had thought of setting up someplace where people can list items
they have...like one of those free websites. I have also thought
about just listing them in a post on the forum of my website. I
would be interested in any ideas people have about doing this and
where. It would be fine to me to use a post on the forum on my
website. I think I can even have another forum set up there just for
this if there is an interest. Or if anyone has any interest in these
items, please email me. I will put a complete list of what I have
available on the current forum on my website before the week is out.
Some things I have more of than others. You could propose an item to
swap for 1 or more items and also for more than one of any particular
Also, feel free to list the items you may want to make available to
swap and suggest what you are looking for in exchange...in terms of
another item. Maybe someone will come along with just what you
need. I will give some thought to some things I would be interested
in swapping for.
Let me put my disclaimer here with this suggestion and will also put
it on my forum. I am not responsible for the outcome of any swaps
made between people. You will have to negotiate that between and
among yourselves and arrange all of your own communication and
shipping etc. I am just willing to provide the space if anyone is
interested in doing some bartering and clearing out some of their old
treasures. I would appreciate care being taken in what is
offered...nothing obscene and insincere please...I will have some
younger people going there and would like to keep this suitable for
So let me know of interest and/or if you can think of another way to
do this other than things like eBay and other auctions. I find
bartering to be much more fun.
The forum is at www.everydayhenna.com/ on the menu at the top of the
page. If you have something you want to post before I get my list
together, feel free.
