 In this swap you will get a partner from a different country and you send them a box of snacks. Sweet, savory, stuff you think is everyday and very mundane can be the oddest thing to your partner. You will also be crafting one small item as well to send some craft love. There will be three weeks after sign ups end to ship, unless we close early.

We will have 10 USA swappers and 10 international swappers. You have to have to send internationally to join this swap. Please do not join if you are not willing to communicate once a week on the thread. It does not have to be a long post but at least update your partner and myself.  If your feedback reflects lots of non-communication, non-posting of pics, etc. I may decide you are not able to swap in this swap. I want this to be a fun and flake-free swap.

If you want to participate please PM scarlet_nights with International snack swap questionaire in the title.

Please use the following labels when PMing me.
International snack swap - question
International snack swap - package sent
International snack swap - package received

Oh, this sounds like so much fun! I think I might have to fill out a questionaire. Grin What kind of crafted item do people usually make?

Depends where you are in Canada.  I know that in Toronto, with the various ethnic populations in certain areas, you can get some stuff.  I plan on sending some of my favourite Asian treats.  Also some store brand stuff that is specific to Canada - like President's Choice stuff.  I am in like sin.

I also know that places like World Market also carry some things. Like I can get aeros and crunchies there, but not coffee crisp or a lot of other favorites.

ps. I just signed up.

I applied earlier but I'm not on the list, hope I'm in?  Smiley Would love to send some of our UK homemade Knawfolk choc to a member, plus I think my husband tolerates my crafting if there is more of a purpose to it!

You can send any crafted item you want. Last time I sent a potholder and my partner sent me a really cute felted goblin king. I'll add the galleries of the previous swaps when i get home from work to show some examples.
