       I'd really love to get into craft swaps; they seem just the thing for me Wink. But for security reasons, I really do not want to give out an adress. I think that a P.O. box will cost around 35$ for six months, and I want to get some opinions. Is there anyone out there who has used a P.O. box? Is there a cheaper alternative? If not, is the money worth it?  Huh

Nothing is craftier than a story Smiley http://writwratwrote.wordpress.com/

Have you looked into what the UPS Store charges for a package to be delivered to them?  They have a service (aside from their boxes) where you can have packages sent to them (for when you can't be home to recieve it, etc) and I believe you pay each time. (it may be just for UPS packages, similarly to the way you can't send UPS to the postoffice box, I'm not sure you can send postal packages to the UPS Store, lol)  Not sure of any of the details, just that I've begun looking into a little of that kind of thing myself for the same reason, but with finishing up grad school I haven't had time to do any swaps on any of my boards anyway... I've been thinking a PO box might not be a bad thing anyway, considering how many companies and such want your address these days, but I'm not sure whether I'm going to be able to afford it or not.
