A few months ago I read about the best idea I had heard of in a while. Called "Swap Until You Drop". Have you heard of it? You know that vase you have stashed away that your not crazy about anymore or that jewelry you loved once, but now is taking up space in your jewelry box. Pack it all up and have your self a swap meet.
Invite your friends and have them to bring 5 to 10 items (or how ever many you determine) that they would like to swap for. Tag each item as it comes in and add a description. Then set up your claim system by giving each guest a clothespin with the first letter of their name monogrammed on the clothespin. You could write them on the pin or use sticker letters. Attach the clothespin to the items tag to claim it. If you end up with more than one person claiming an item, simply put the monogrammed clothespins in a hat and draw a winner.
Doesn't it sound like so much fun? What a great way to get some wonderful new items without spending a dime!
I'm up for it... whose with me?
