Details of swap:
The snow here is just starting to melt away and as the sun gets warmer, Im yearning for my favourite season of the year: market season! Whether youre a produce grower, a seller, a locavore, a cooking enthusiast, an agricultural activist, or you just love browsing the farmer's market for all the fresh things, this swap is for you.  

Well be swapping for things that inspire you to go to market, support your stance (local? organic? pro-agricultural? vegetarian/vegan? "green"? grow your own?), or make your market time easier, more enjoyable, more eco-friendly, or more stylish.

This is a low-stress swap. We will be making one medium and two small items.   The medium item and one of your small items should be crafted, but one small item can be purchased or thrifted if you and your partner agree.  
According to Craftster, medium and small items are equivalent to the following:
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a set of notecards, a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet, a bookmark)
These size guidelines are very subjective, so, as always, work with your partner to decide how much to send.  Be sure to agree on the amount of time, money, and effort you want to spend for this swap.

Throughout the swap, you will be expected to:
* Keep in regular contact with your partner
* PM me and your partner when you send and when you receive.  If you are in the US, you must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number).  Include the DC in your package sent PM to me and your partner.  If you cannot get a tracking number, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping until the package is received
* When you receive, post photographs in the gallery


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide for other details about participating in a swap.

Please note that you may not be able to participate in this swap if your swap profile includes:
* ANY negative feedback comments
* poor communication in past swaps
* sending late in past swaps

If you want to participate PM the following questionnaire to your organizer (psyche):
Name of swap:
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

Hm. Well have you sent? If you think your partner could have received by March 10 (and therefore you could have your feedback), it's possible. . .
