hummm good question - leaving that open a bit because of the variety of items that can be sent.

communication with your partner will be needed so you are both are on the same page but basically send a package you would be happy to rec. - keeping in mind weight - I always forget to check the weight of my packages   Tongue

I'll keep my eye out for this. What is the spending limit. What if I only want a non US partner? No offense, but I'd rather get things from another country.

No offense taken <g>  I understand that for sure.  I'm going to match up best I can first come first serve.  We have had people other than usa say they are going to sign up but I guess we will have to see.
I would think no more than $10-$15 - I sent a box over to England that was about that much (maybe a bit more but I got carried away) - now the shipping was $$$$$$ got to remember to pre weigh those boxes!
Of course if you craft with supplies all ready on hand that would bring the price of the swap down.

I dunno if my town would be very interesting. Anyone over heard of the "famous" Sweet Vidalia Onions? I live in Vidalia, and we have onions EVERYWHERE.
And if I were to join, this would be my first swap. I would probably be too nervous to do it!
