Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 20   

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Sorry guys, since this is my first time as an organizer I need to limit participants to US residents only (I am soooo sorry about this  Cry)

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages allowed

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  

This is the Wild Cool and Swingin’ Retro swap!  Come and express your love for all things retro whether it is the Rat Pack or disco balls! This swap will focuse on the decades of the 1920’s through the 1970’s and swappers will be matched up as closely as possible to others with the same favorite era.  This swap will require a send out of 1 big item and 2 smaller items (in terms of crafting time).  

Come and show us what ya know Daddio
!


There will be a longer than normal craft time due to a vacation planned in early June, Fourth of July weekend and also because this is my first time as an organizer!

Okay, now for the rules (shamelessly stolen from Pink Mafia!):

1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. You must post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

3. Please put "Retro Swap" in the title of all PMs so it doesn’t get too confusing!

4. Please make an item that you would like to receive. Do some research and communicate with your partner.

5.Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for all packages

6.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  When you have received, please remember to inform your partner and the organizer!  If you are late, you need to pm your partner and the swap organizer ASAP.

8. I will send reminder PMs to check on your progress, this will help people avoid flaking. If you have any concerns or questions, pm me rather than just dropping out. If you and your partner have problems let me know so we can organize something.  Lets make this a flake free and fun swap!


Please do not sign up if you can't fulfill the requirements of this swap

There is defintely interest!!!  I am just trying to decide whether to take my boyfriend's advice and cut down on my swapping or to go ahead and do it. (He thinks I am overstressed/overworked from crafting, as if that could be possible Grin  It's the other things in life - work and whatnot - that make me stressed).  Actually, my one stress reliever is crafting.  I probably won't take his advice, hee hee!
