I would love to join.

Tongue

Need to let you know this

I sent from my university post office, they never have a receipt for non-registered packages.

 Sad

Even I got the registered package type, I can never get it to work which is really weird.

The receipt is only required for you to avoid negative feedback in case your package goes missing. I will not ask you for it unless this happens, and you are ok to not get one as long as you understand that if your package gets lost in the mail and I have no proof of you sending it, I will have to give negative feedback.

I collect coins from around the world... an interest that I inherited from my dad, who served in the US navy. He had a small collection (probably about 50 coins) that he would show me when I was younger. I loved looking at them and learning about the different countries through them. I had a tiny collection as a child, then I got my dad's collection after he died, had several other family members (in branches of the military) who handed over their small collection when they heard about my interest, began getting coins as random gifts from people... and now I have over 600 coins from 80 or so countries in every continent but Antarctica. My oldest coin is Mexican from 1828, but I also have some neat ones from the early 1900s that I like a lot. I collect them for historical and cultural interest, not for profit, and I can bore anyone with my fascination and excitement about them. Tongue

I think that's a neat idea for a collection. Smiley Do you like them to be specifically US-related?

Tickle-me-emo, my sister collects Christmas ornaments too! My parents travel a lot and always get her one.

Beadedbyamy, that's really neat that you have so many coins from so many places.  I have a few from the places I've been but nothing too exciting.

I definitely have one of the interesting collections!  Cheesy
I collect restaurant menus.  It started when I was a freshman in college.  I went to a friend's house for the first time and his roommate had menus for local eateries hanging up in the den.  I thought it was pretty neat so I decided I wanted to do it too! I would pick them up here and there and by the time I was a junior, my roommate and I would meet for lunch at least once a week at a different restaurant just so we could get the menu. It became an adventure! Some we asked for and others we sneaked out, but I can remember stories about most of them which is cool. We had them all strung up on our dining room walls with fishing line and clothes pins.  It was really fun and was always good for an interesting conversation!  After I graduated and moved into a new condo in a different city, I packed them all up and they now sit an a couple of peach crates in my dining room.  At last count, I had over 150!  Oh, and these aren't paper menus!  Wink

I'm going to see if I have any pictures of them hanging and if I do I'll add it here. Smiley
I found a picture! It's four years old, blurry and the menus are in the background, but it's the best I can do! Please excuse the drunk girl with the puppy (ahem...me)!  Tongue

Question? I'm still considering joining this swap, but what happens if there ends up being more US people then other countries. I only ask because I'm not sure I'm up for the international mailing rates again. I since I like new food too I'm okay with have a US partner send me foodies I can't get here. By the way I live I Hawaii which is almost like living in another country lol
