If it's in the new year, I'll definately be interested. I hear you still have Lucky Charms cereal in the US, my my how i miss it Sad

Yes, we sure do! They're magically delicious! I'll trade you a box of those for a packet of Walkers Prawn Cocktail Crisps!  Cheesy

Yum! I can't believe you don't have them, I'd send you a multipack for sure!

Oh boots stuff is very nice ...

What else would people like from England , I cant really think of any food items i would like from america as im not big on sweets .

It got me thinking , what does America have that England dosnt and vice versa .. id love to join as I could send alot of london things and such just not entirely sure what to ask for  Undecided

I'd LOVE ephemera like old photos, seaside postcards, anything like that, especially from Kent as I lived in Canterbury, or kitchy stuff from Margate, Blackpool, Skegness...or touristy stuff from Wales. Hmmm..I'd  enjoy British TV stuff like Bagpuss and Magic Roundabout, that we don't get here, as well as London Transport type stuff...as for what we have that you don't...I'd have to think about it. I used to take peanut butter candies like reeses over cause we couldn't get them when I lived there (word spread fast among US students if someone got a PB related package from home!) Not sure what else offhand...maybe other pop culture type stuff? Or regional stuff, souvenier type items?

Looby lashes, literally, anything you could get yer hands on is fine. Cadbury Flake would be nice, Typhoo tea and a couple of your crazy tabloid magazines would round out my day very nicely.

I'll have to check out the Boots stuff in Target when it arrives. I do hope we get it here.

Don't they have peanut butter in the UK? Come to think of it, I don't recall seeing any PB-based sweeties when I was there. I wonder why? I know PB was invented in the US, but I thought it would have crossed over!

Some free associations: pub coasters, chutney, matchbooks, Underground maps / ephemera, Whats On Liverpool, BritRail ticket stubs, maybe a 1 note, etc. These are all things I enjoyed on my journey and things I would enjoy receiving.

Lucky for me I work near a pub called Limey's (!!) that my gang likes to head to on Friday evenings after work. We can get Boddington's, Guiness, Harp (whew!!!) Strongbow and Newkie there on tap. It's amazing! I don't drink American swill like Budweiser. Why, when you can get the good stuff easily!

All right, well there seems to be enough interest. I'll probably set up this swap in January!

US girl here who's interested. 

Personally, I'd love getting fashion mags from the UK.  I'm such a dork.

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.
