I think a lot of folks here enjoy the retro scene. I would love to do a retro swap. It could include all sorts of goodies.... aprons, art, greeting cards, recipe boxes, alterred tins for holding bobby pins (oh so retro), ATCs, pin cushions, crocheted or knitted things, embroidery, pillow cases, regular pillows, all sorts of jewelry, jewelry boxes, T shirts, clocks, alterred mirrors, notebooks/diaries, bags, wall hangings, planters, pencil holders, the list goes on!

Sounds right up my alley!

What years would you include in "retro"?

Gosh, to answer your question, I suppose anything from the 50s on up...?  Everything else I think you might call vintage. Or maybe they are one and the same depending on how you look at it.  What do others think?

This swap looks similar http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408052.0.

I would love to do this swap, especially if it involved swapping cheap thrift store finds as well as some retro crafting!

I love retro - depending on timeframe, I might be in! (Trying to get motivated to start wedding crafting, but everything else is currently calling my name). Wink
