I have no way to organize this, but I think it would be funky to have a swap where you have a certain object that all the goodies have to fit in... Like a soda can or a  box for a certain product...  Undecided

hmmm...  interesting...  I might be able to organize that swap if enough people are interested.

and easy way to do it is to just have people use a certain size of priority mail box (probably either  7" x 7" x 6" or  8.625" x 5.375" x 1.625") and just fill it to the brim!  that way we know that everyone can get that box, since they're free.  I know it cuts down on the coolness a little, but it would be easy.

so, what would be like the container to be?  a soda can?  a box from some sort of food?  a pringle's can?  a priority box of a certain size?  a flat envelope of a certain size?

should it be totally random or some sort of theme?  (I'd think random myself...)  should it only be crafted goods or a mix with supplies?

I'm actually starting to get kind of interested in running this as a swap...

I have to admit that the soda can holds ENORMOUS appeal to me!  How cool would that be to get a soda can in the mail?  Can one just pop a stamp or two on that and just run it thourgh the mail?  Or does the post office frown on that now.  I know with all the tighter security that they're enforcing now, there's been some changes.  I think random stuff would be the easiest for everyone to deal with.  I'd hate to think someone would sit the swap out because they felt they didn't have time/money/whatever to fit the theme.  I'm getting so excited!!!!

one of my friends had a penpal when we were in middle school and she would often send letters in a pop can.  her post office acceptance ratio was about 1:1; they agreed to mail it half the time, and they refused half the time.  so, it might be better to just stick the pop can in something else, and since we have to send priority due to the delivery confirmation issue, we can always just stick it in a box or envelope.

but with a popcan, we'd probably want to take the top portion off so they we could get stuff in and out, since the hole that's usually there is very small...  but that's easy to do by just scrapping it on cement for a minute or two.
