Details of swap:
Do you love anything to do with the old golden age of cinema? Do you swoon when you hear the names Audrey Hepburn, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo, Fred Astaire, and Vivien Leigh?
Then this swap is for you!
The Golden Age of Hollywood lasted from the 20s through the 60s and included films like The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, and Breakfast at Tiffany's, to name a very few. Devotees of this era always need more glam to add to their stargazing, so what better than a swap to get some more pizzaz?

This is a 3+ points swap. Each participant will be sending 1 large to their partner. (Hence the 3+ because my larges never only take 3 hours...)
Any extras are between you and your partner, but we would love to see them in the gallery!

I reserve the right to refuse anyone due to feedback, frequent late senders or flakers may be refused! I want this to be a flake free swap!

Large= 3 points
Medium=2 points
Small=1 point

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

This is my first time organizing a swap, so please be nice! Smiley

Alright, we have one set of partners and one round robin for us Smiley Round robins work like person a sends to person b, person b sends to person c, and person c sends to person a. Just a good way to sove uneven numbers. Smiley

I love old movies, and the send out date IS MY BIRTHDAY! I feel that this is a sign that I should sign up for this swap.

There are way too many good swaps right now.  I may have to sign up for this, but it'll be closer to the end date.  I did my graduation project from college on film music and focused mainly in the silent era, so this is right up my alley.

I'm tempted.  But I don't know if I can handle 2 swaps at the same time.  I adore classic Hollywood though!  Maybe if I get a good start on my first swap....

I'm trying to cut back too, so that's why I only made it a 1 large swap. More than OTT but not as commitment heavy as a 5 pointer. Smiley

I love this idea! I'm trying not to swap now though, I have too much stuff going on and almost always send late. But I wanted to bump the thread so more ppl sign up and I can ogle the gallery!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.
