I really want to join this swap but...I don't know what an altoids tin is. I've never seen them in stores around here(I live in Calgary). Is there something else I can use instead, or does it absolutely have to be an altoids tin?

They have them in canada but some are under different names..some tins are called Marks and Spencers Curiously strong mints.....they are small tins
They're approx.  9.5 cm x 6 cm x 2 cm/  or

3.75 in x 2.25 in x 0.75 in

Hope that helps!

This sounds like fun, and not too expensive to mail overseas!  Wink

Am I right in thinking you put 3 options down and your partner picks 1?

Well, yes BUT if you have a person who your partner can google a load of info or at least several things of then you can list one...You have to opp to list 3...

I only have 1...My Patrick Swayze   I handed my partner on a silver platter what I would love ROTFL....

list away and I do try to keep people in the same areas over shipping as that is a big deal to some swappers....

wow! this sounds like a great idea! one thing before i sign up though,
im in the UK. Is an altoids tin just any metal tin that is the size that you gave?
Sorry, I know someone already asked this question, but I have never seen them  before, but Ive googled it and had a look, but wasnt sure if I had to get a particular brand, or just any.
Sorry, hope that hasnt confused you!
