Anyone up for a swap??

Posted by girlsingardens (My Page) on

Okay now that I have your attention. I went to a estate sale today where they had tons of sheet music from the 50's I was wondering if anyone was interested in it. It is in good shape and slightly yellowed, they would be great for collages, crafts, tags or for someone to sing or play on piano. I would like to trade for supplies for crafting, or just a mix of things, I don't care. I can send 4-5 pieces of music each with multiple pages. Just seeing if anyone is interested.

Would also be interested in a swap of "stuff" buttons, linens, old jewelry, beads, bangles, or as my kids would call them, pretties. We could do it in an envelope or box what ever. Thought it would be fun to do a vintage trade of misc. stuff to others.

It sounds like fun. I hesitate only because I probably should be sending out and not receiving! Dh has just told me we need to get a bunch of stuff out of the cellar to make way for a new wood pellet boiler. We've planned to do that for years, but now we have to get it in before we finish screening in the back porch (another door to go thru will make it tricky to get in.) That means I have to bring future garden art upstairs where i keep my pretties. I put lol then erased it. Yikes I'm a collector for sure. How about a big envelope or very small box?

I'd like some but I don't think I have anything to swap. My crafts don't usually involve sparklies and such.
I think I might have some fabric ribbon tucked away somewhere.....I might could rustle up some seegar boxes. Hmmm I'll have to go digging in some corners.
Can you give me a few more ideas of things you like?

Could you email me please with a list of crafting supplies you might be interested in? I have a ton of various supplies but need more specific items that you might have in mind to get. I always have things that little girls would like :O) BTW how are the kids doing...I remember you posting that one of them was having surgery and had emailed you awile back.

Thanks,
Carmen

Maybe we should post stuff that we have a lot of and see who would like some.

I'm not sparkly either nmgirl. I sure would love a seegar box though! But would hate to have you pay for shipping. The local cigar store went out of bus. before I realized I could probably get some there.
What I have alot of is decoupage papers. I also have some already cut out flowers and birds that I printed myself. (that's how I spent evenings one winter, lol) I know there's more. I'll have to poke around. Just weede out scrapbook stuff and gave some to friend of dd. Then I wished I had my chalk to figure out where the front door is sticking, lol.

Carmen,

I would love to email you but the email that you sent earlier didn't have a return email. Also your post was sent to my email but I couldn't respond. Email me at girlsingardens@yahoo.com from your email address. Looking foreward to hearing from you.

As for my family, we met our deductible by the 14th of January. Everyone is doing well and on the rebound, I hope at least. I am still having some problems but hope that time will clear them up.

You know what I have is 4 or 5 of those frames that you use to display fabric in. You know two small hoops that hold the fabric between and have little screws to tighten. I just don't think I'll use them. They are small but in various sizes round and oval, maybe 5 inches to 7 inches. I just went to look for them to measure but they are buried under stuff from the kitchen still,lol. I would love a few pieces of old jewelry for my crafting, especially flower shapes and for a current mosaic project of several fishes and a frog and I'm looking for old earrings that would make good fish eyes.
