Most of the items I have seen listed shouldn't be too difficult to find.  There will be four different things listed plus some additional information on your partner.  You should be able to find something...

it depends what everyone wants. is $10 too much for everyone? you could get a ton of cool stuff. How about if $10 is the max? Hopefully you can find alot of your partners stuff for less than $10, but $10 is the limit?

I think $10.00 is a good amount; for those who want to do extra, go for it, but let's not expect it!  Remember, there is the cost of shipping to consider.

How are we all doing with our searches?  Just a reminder that items should be sent by June 22.  That gives us about 2 1/2 weeks left.

Happy thrifting!

Oh my gosh!  I just received the gretest package from livilovesolives!  It had not one, not two, but three teapots in it!  And, yes there is more, a tea cup and saucer.  She even included some of her favorite teas!  She is the greatest swap partner ever!  Thank you so much!  I will post pictures later.  You will all be so jealous!

P.S.  livilovesolives, did you receive my package?  I sent it almost two weeks ago.  Please let me know.  Thanks.
