Details of swap:
We have all gone to the local dollar store and have seen things that would be fun to use in a future swap or a swap you're doing right then but didn't want to get it for fear of beening seen as a total cheapskate...well here's your chance! This swap is all about your dollar store love. 

RULES:
1.  It's easy to go nuts in the dollar store, so there is a spending limit.  No less then $5 and no more than $10.
2.  There are fake dollar stores out there. You know the ones, The 99 Cents (and in really itty bitty letters) and up stores.  Well, for this swap the store has to be at least 90% of just dollar stuff, there are some stores out there that have a "roped off" section of items that are more than a dollar, but to store has to be almost all dollar items.
3.  No going to other stores like Micheals or WalMart and going to their dollar section.  The store has to be at least 90% dollar stuff.
4.  No thrift stores.  I know I know, but they are so wonderful! I thought a while about this and I think it would be fun to just keep to the dollar store.
5.  Think of this swap as a little bit of a stash buster, you can use whatever you have left over from other swaps or other crafts you can do...but no buying other stuff at the craft store.  Need yellow paint? Try to think of a way around it, change it around, be creative!  The only thing you can go get is glues.  Some things you want to do have a very specific glue needed that you just don't have, or you run out of it...so you can go get glues (or what ever you need to stick to it...). 
6.  Go nuts! This should be fun and a bit tacky, after all it is the dollar store...the land of cheap plastic things and slightly stale food...and totally addictive *grin*

Any questions about any of this feel free to PM me, I am home around 7pm Pacific time so I will try my best to answer any questions as soon as I get home.

EDIT: What to craft...duh, can't believe I forgot that well anyway...

Thee small items, or one medium one small item, or one large item....as large an item can be from the dollar store lol  Really, it is all dollar store size relative.

just to clarify... you're buying the supplies for your swap package at the dollar store, right?

that's so fun!

Supplies and/or revamp something there...

Example: I see dice at the dollar store all the time, maybe you can drill through them and make a bracelet or or necklace.  Or you can get one of the toys, like a sword, and decorate it with glittler, fabric, paint, and yarn, make it a streamer or sorts.

That help?

What do you mean tacky?  I can buy little stretched canvases, converse knock-off shoes, cute boxers, and all kinds of other little wonders at my $ store!  Seriously, I can make some AWESOME stuff with $10!  Honestly, I am going to have to STOP before $10, just so I don't end up being another 'overachiever'!  (that's what they called me on the instant swap we are finishing now! lol)

I went again last night, to wander the aisles and think about my options...didn't get anything yet for this swap (have to wait and find out my partner's likes and wants and deco scheme) but I did spend $49.00.  Of course, mine ROCKS!  They actually have good groceries too!  (6-packs of yogurt, fresh grape tomatoes, healthy choice lunch meats, etc!)

Don't you all be jealous!  Smiley

Wow, I'm *totally* jealous! I thought my dollar store (the Dollar Tree) was just about the best one around. My store has food, but only boxed and canned stuff, nothing fresh, really. That's cool.

I might have to do this swap. I love any excuse to go to the dollar store. *lol*

God.... I live in Canada, I have one post and I joined (today?)... I've never joined any swap at all but I'm itching to... Can I be considered ? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease! *puppy face*

If I join and somebody hates whatever I sent to them, you can storm me with negative feedback and hate mail...and bombs in my mail...and other evil stuff.

Pweeeeeeez! Sad

Don't worry, by the time you're eligable for swaping I am willing to bet there will be a round 3....this looks to be a fun swap! How about next time?
