hi all
i have lots of items i don't use and would love to swap them for things i would use
i know it's better to recycle than just throw out and if we can use others old stuff rather than buying new stuff then that will help our environment too

anyone have any ideas on how we could set this up?

ps i was thinking of each person paying for postage so no money actually changes hands - i guess the 50 post count would have to come into it too as it's essentially a trust thing although i have no problems with people picking items up, what do you think?

do you mean like an EB version of freecycle?

I think it is a good idea - not that I really have anything old to swap...

Oh yes I'm a big fan of passing on. Can't bring myself to ever sell anything on Ebay or at the markets or whatevs.

Would much rather see things go to a good home.

how about we leave it up to the poster who is giving or swapping their stuff for the post count?  probably easiest that way

i'll start!

1 x SUDOKU game (used once *blush*) - will cost me 10.00 to post as it's pretty big

will swap for
1 pair size 20 jeans (in good 2nd hand condition is fine) or
jane green book  or
marion keyes book or
something else!

any takers?
