list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

There will be a PM checkpoint from September 30-Oct 2.  Sometime in there, you have to PM me with your progress to decrease the likelihood of flakers.  Please do not send your package before these dates unless both partners let me know!  If you're not around during those days, please just let me know beforehand.

Could you ask the organizer to add your feedback? It'd be a shame to miss out!

Okay, hi.

I wasnt really active in the idea post for this swap so I guess I can tell you about where Im from:

I live in Southern California, right outside of Los Angeles. The only thing I can think of people wanting from here is an In-N-Out Burger. You havent had a good hamburger until youve had one from In-N-Out. But yeah. I suppose I could go to Hollywood and take pictures of the stars (the ones on the ground, not actual people) and buy touristy stuff?

Yeah, I dont know what America has that anyone could possibly want.

LA has a lot of little country-Towns that Im sure sell imported goods. For example, we have Little Tokyo, Little Ethiopia, Thai-town, Chinatown, Little Armenia stuff like that. While I could get things from there, I dont know how cool thatd be because theyre probably over-priced and I have no idea what they are? There is one thing that I would know where to get and for not a lot of money Joss paper (and Hell Bank Notes). Its Chinese paper, very delicate and some of it is absolutely gorgeous.

Mer. Im sure that people from other countries know what theyd like from here, right?

Anyhow, I would really love clogs and chocolate. Ive never had chocolate that wasnt from here. According to the rest of the world, Im really missing out. I would looooove lip gloss from around the world. My friend went to Germany for study abroad recently and sent me Labello and an abnormally large box of TicTacs. Mmmm, good stuff. Things I also like: beads, paper (it would be awesome to get advertisements and newspaper from other countries), messenger bags that arent plain/American (usually ones with cutesy Japanese stuff on them), candy (dear non-Americans, please send me yummy candy), flip flops!, shells and beach-y stuff. Yeah, I like a lot of things.

Anyhow, for anyone I dont get partnered with, I would be more than interested in doing one-on-one swaps. And dont be embarrassed about asking for anything or if you want something expensive. Im willing to spend as much as you are. Also, if you think you can send me something Im interested in (even if its just a tube of lip gloss), let me know and we can do a mini one-on-one.

Yes, Im selling myself for foreign goods.

Also!!! I go to school in Miami, FL. So once I go back there (Im visiting at the end of October, but will be there for months starting January) I can send you stuff from there. One of the best things Ive found in Miami, that I havent anywhere else, is coral. Its like all over the place! There arent many beaches in CA where coral washes ashore.

Thanks for reading! Im super-excited about this swap!!! Contact me if youre interested in a one-on-one.

I'm not sure if this is because they don't have it there or if my friend was just a starving student, but when one of my Friends went to Germany for study abroad, he asked for Oreos and Lemonade mix.


I've also heard that you can't get mac&cheese or Ranch dressing in England....?

I'm willing to send Peanut Butter to France, since I heard it's ridiculously expensive there (comparatively anyway). Of course, I don't know if PB can go through customs...
