GENERAL
The Shop the Swap (or STS) is a different kind of swap in that we start with finished items.  We use a point system in which you “price” items in points that you receive when you “sell” your shop item to another swapper.  Once you have sent your claim out , you can use those points to “buy” any available item from any open shop in the swap.   Like the real world, you can’t spend points that you don’t have (no overdraft here) and you can’t hoard your points under your mattress (you must close and go shopping when you have +7 points).  
If you are traveling or otherwise unable to keep your shop open, you can close for a short period of time (a week or two, please let the organizers know)

SHOPS
- Post a “shop” in this thread with at least 5 finished, handcrafted items for the other swappers to choose from.  You can also post a small amount of craft supply items at the bottom of your shop.  **Custom items can be offered, but must be finished and sent in a timely manner, so keep this in mind and only offer custom items that you can finish quickly.  Please let us know if you will be sending late.
-Handcrafted items from other people may be offered in your shop, BUT  be aware of the potential of hurt feelings when “selling” items made for you in other swaps.  This is a high profile swap that many people see.  Crafted items from others must be credited with the name of the creator or you will be requested to remove that item.
-Each item should have a SHORT identifiable title, description and picture.  Each item should be priced between 1 and 3 points.  Groups of items can be priced at a choice of 2 for 1 (or 3 for 1 etc).  Charge what you think is fair for your crafted item, considering time/supply cost/popularity.
-Check people’s wishlists and use the discussion thread for brainstorming any new items to offer in your shop.

PLEASE SEE THE NEXT POST FOR SHOP FORMATS

POINTS
-all persons new to the swap receive 3 points to spend.  This is a STS “loan” and you must leave with 3 points (in effect pay the “loan” back) for positive feedback.  
-Your shop must be open before you can spend your points in other shops.
-Remember there are no guarantees that claims will be made from your shop.  To make a sale you may need to adjust your prices or offer new crafted items/supplies.
-Everytime someone claims from you, you will get whatever point price you have listed for it.  List the claim at the bottom of your shop and add the points into pending and to your points total.  You cannot spend pending points.
-Once you have sent the claim, move the points into current.  All current points are spendable so go shopping!
-When you have +7 points (a TOTAL of current and pending) you must close your shop temporarily.  Edit your shop post to put CLOSED at the top in big bold letters that people will see.
-Once you go shopping (with your current points, you may have to ship first)and spend your points down to 5 or less, you can re-open your shop.
-Claims to and from you should be listed with your point tally at the bottom of your shop.  See the next post for the proper shop format.


PLEASE SEE THE NEXT POST FOR CLAIM/SEND/RECEIVE PM FORMATS

FEEDBACK
Ongoing
-If any prior claims go missing you may be required to remake/refund the points/offer something else in your shop if you have no DC# or shipping receipt.  If you have a valid DC# or shipping receipt it is your decision whether you will replace the item or have me arrange an angel.  You will not get angel credit for replacing the item.


Final
-Positive feedback will be given after the swap closing date of April 22/18 if you have 3 points and all your claims have been received.
-Negative feedback will be given for closing this swap with less than 3 points and/or not sending claims made to you.  If you need points, have a sale, let people know in the discussion thread, offer some supplies.  
-Spend your points down to 3 before the close of this round.  These points will not be returned to you should you join the STS in a future round.  So go shopping!

SHIPPING
-Remember that you have ONE WEEK to ship from the day you receive a claim.
-All items are to be shipped AFTER an official claim is received; please do not ship custom items before we receive an official STS claim for them.  Items shipped before they are claimed will not be covered under our angel policy should they go missing.
- DC# are required on all claims if eligible AS PER CRAFTSTER SWAP RULES; if sending internationally please keep your postal receipt until your item is received.   Thin items can be padded with a plastic grocery bag or something similiar to make them thick enough for a DC#.  If your item has not been received within a reasonable time (3-4 weeks domestic; 4-5 weeks international) an angel can be arranged if you have a DC# or postal receipt.  If not you will be required to remake or offer something else from your shop and resend.
-Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide (https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.


COMMUNICATION
-It is your responsibility to keep relevant people informed of your shop and claim status  
-all claim/send/receive pm’s must be sent to both organizers as well as to the person you are claiming from/sending to.  Please check you're outgoing pm's to ensure that everyone has received a copy!!!!!!
-Poor communication will be noted in your feedback.  This includes not informing the organizers/other swappers of claim status via the correct claim format; not posting in the discussion thread.
-Do join in the lively conversation on the discussion thread which can be found here:   https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454371.0

Title: Re: STS Spring Market 2018 **Neato stuff to know**
Post by: alteredmommy on March 04, 2018 11:20:00 AM
Shop format

Name of your shop and a brief bio, your location, allergy info…..
OPEN or CLOSED  <<remember to change this when you need too!!>>

-List all crafted items you have to offer, either by high point to low point, newest to oldest-however you like to organize your items.
-A good picture of your item makes it much more likely to be claimed
-Make sure every item has a SHORT recognizable title that can be used in claiming (and makes it much easier for cutting and pasting to the claims list)
-Clearly mark the price of the item (1-3 points) in whole numbers only please-while you can list things for .25 or .5, there has to be enough of the items so people can make a whole number claim
-List how many of the items are available
-Once items are claimed, it is your responsibility to remove them from your shop to avoid claim confusion.  Pictures can be transferred to the gallery for each round.
-Include a brief description of the item

-Craft supply items can be listed after crafted items.  Please keep these to a  manageable amount and if you have more than a few use thumbnails for pictures.  If you put the thumbnail links together with no spaces they will show up in a line.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the end of your shop please put your claims list and point total

Claims made from me -  <<List all claims made to your shop for the current round only like this:>>
to alteredmommy –  fabulous soap (2 pt)

Claims I have made -  <<List all claims that you make to other people like this>>
from loves2experiment – fabulous roving (2 pt)

Points:
Started with: 3   <<This is how many points you start the round with>>
Pending:2           <<This is the point total of claims made to you that HAVE NOT BEEN SENT YET-once you
                               send these points get removed from pending and added to current points
>>
Current:1            <<These are your spendable points from claims that you HAVE SENT-the point value of any
                                claims you make gets deducted from here
>>

TOTAL: 3           <<This is the total of PENDING and CURRENT points.  When the total is +7 you must temporarily
                               close your shop and spend (using current points) down to 5 or less
>>

A wishlist of items you would love to see in people’s shops can be included at the bottom of your shop  

 

Claim/Send/Receive pm format

All pm’s must be sent to both organizers alteredmommy, loves2experiment AND the person you are claiming/sending/receiving from.  All pm’s must be sent in the proper format to be valid, the FIRST properly formatted claim for any item wins the claim.  

Here is an example of a claim made on January 1:
To: “alteredmommy””loves2experiment”person you are claiming from
Subject: STS Winter Market 2014 Claim

Send by January 8
Phizzychick to alteredmommy – 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                        -bunch of doo-dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
Cheryl DM
10 moose eating my yard street
My town, AB
Canada,  H0H 0H0

Here is a line by line breakdown:

TO:   <<both organizers must be in this line and the person you are sending to.  We need to see all names in this line for the claim to be valid.  Make sure you use the To: space and NOT the bcc space.  Please check your outgoing message copy to see that the correct people received the pm and resend the message to everyone if anyone gets missed-this is REALLY, REALLY important and we don’t mind getting copies as long as we eventually get a correct one!  Hint- write the names with quote marks around each one except the last>>
SUBJECT:  <<STS Winter Market 2014  Claim  OR Send OR Receive – Please make sure the subject line is correct as it really helps with filing the hundreds of pm’s into the proper folder>>

SEND BY  <<7 days from the date that the claim was made, which is the date directly under the claim date on the calendar, include this on ALL claim/send/receive pm’s>>

claim
person you are claiming from to alteredmommy – 5 neato cards (1 pt)
                                                  -  bunch of doo dads .5, bird necklace .5 (1 pt)
<<the person you are claiming from goes first, you go second>>
<<use the brief title of the item on ONE line, please write the claim beside the swapper names (this needs to be cut and pasted to the list)>>
<<claims must be made in whole points, if claiming a number of items listed as fractions of points you need to claim enough to add up to a whole point>>
<<each full point claim should be written on a separate line>>
<<multiple part point claims should be written as 1 claim as above>>
your address, written as it should be for mailing

send
<<you can copy the original claim made to you, make sure you change the SUBJECT line.    Obviously when you send a claim, your name goes first and the person you are sending to goes second….>>

receive
<<again you can copy the original claim, making sure you change the SUBJECT line to receive

Any personal comments or messages (“I love this”  “thankyou” etc…..) needs to be put at the BOTTOM  of your message so we can see the claim info.



General Info

what about customs and holding claims  <<<<please read!!
Putting items on hold in your shop is up to your own discretion.  Only items that are currently listed in your shop can be put on hold.  Holds should only be accepted when your shop is open, if a shop is closed and you are itching to claim something please pm the shop owner and ask that they let you know when they reopen so you can claim.  Custom items should be posted and reserved on hold for the person you made them for, then they can submit a formal claim.  Please do not ask people via private message to hold items for you until you can submit a proper claim; this is not an acceptable way around the "first properly formatted claim wins the item" rule.  And as always please be reasonable about the time you expect someone to hold an item for you.

My points/claims don't match what I think they should. Is something wrong?
If it has been awhile since you made the claim or if any of the organizers admit to having been drunk/sick/tired/attending to life in the real world when we last updated the claims or points, go ahead and send us a PM. Otherwise, give us time to get caught up with claims. If your claim is a few days old and not has not shown up on the list, please send us a pm inquiring about it (it may have been missed in the hundreds of pms that we get or not messaged to everyone)

I think I have 7 points but you only show me with 6, am I closed? OR I think I have 6 points but you show me with 7, am I open? OR Why are my points still pending, I sent those items?
In general, if you have recently changed your points, you're probably right and the point total is probably out of date.  Please close your shop when you know you're at 7 points.  Re-open your shop when you know you are at 5 points or less. And, if you've sent us a PM saying you sent items, go ahead and spend the points, even if they still show as pending points on the list.

Why do I have to list my claims in my shop? Aren't you keeping track of my points?
Yes! We are keeping track of your points, and in any disagreement, ours is the list that counts. But to make it easier to resolve any disagreements, we'd like to be able to compare your list of what you think you've claimed/has been claimed from you, and compare it to our list.  I do go through everyone’s shops on occasion to add up points and make sure we’re all on the same page.
Also, if you keep a running list of your claims in your shop, it makes it much easier for people to look at your shop and figure out if you are open or closed in case you haven’t updated recently or when the points list hasn't been updated in the last 5 minutes!

If you have any further questions, please don’t hestitate to pm the organizers!!!

✂️ Christy's Crafties ✂️

CLOSED
 
*** Always Updating - Keep Checking Back ***

Hey! My name is Christy and I live in Maryland with my husband, daughter, and 2 small dogs.  I love sewing, so I will mostly have sewn crafts and supplies in my shop.

** CRAFTIES **

 
Scrappy bookmarks (blue or pink) -- .25 points each


PeePee TeePees (12 available) -- .25/each or 5 for 1 point
I've never had a boy, but I hear these can save mommas some self-respect during diaper changings.  Made with cotton and terrycloth fabrics, and a "no pinch" ribbon.


Random Snap Pouches (top, middle, tiny left, tiny right) -- .25 point each
Made from random sized scraps.  ***Remind myself to get measurements ***


Coin pouches (green/grey, green, scissors, polka dot, or confetti)  -- .5 points each
About 5.5" x 4".  


Tiny snap envelope needle case -- .50 point
It's a bit smaller than 3" x 4".


Bandana bibs (dot or blue) -- .50 point each


Harry Potter mouse pad -- .50 point
I made this from our old mousepad, stripped the cover off it, and recovered with Potter fabric.  


Japanese knot bags (blue or lime) -- 1 point each
I have two of the lime ones available..  About the size of a small purse.


Pokemon water bottles (Meowth, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, & Flareon) -- 1 point each
Brand new wrist strap (inside bottles) bottles from Pick Your Plum.  I cut and attached vinyl characters.  **Handwash Only* to protect the vinyl.


Envelope door hanging pocket (2 available)  -- 1 point each
Cute lil pocket envies to hold phone, keys, mail, whatev.  Cotton fabric with stiff interfacing to help it keep it's shape.  They are about 7.25" wide x 11" to the top.


Baby set (yellow or orange) -- 1 point per set
Each set includes a bib, burp cloth, and washrag.  I made these with bar-mop backings.


Lil drawstring tote (3 available) -- 1.5 points each
Kid or lunch sized tote with an expandable drawstring pouch that allows even more goodies to be stuffed in there.  First pic shows the front and back of each tote.



Snap clutch (claim as number)  -- 1.5 point each
They are 4" x 6.5".


Small boxy bags (school supplies, butterfly, or paws)  -- 1.5 points each
These work well for makeup, small toiletries, school supplies, etc.  Made with cotton and batting, so they lay flat for storage.  8.5" L x 4.5" W x 3.5" H.




Passport case (map, yellow, bird, gold, or clouds) -- 1.5 point each
Each of these are made with faux leather-ish and cotton material.  The fabric on the strip is the fabric on the inside.
I have 2 clouds available.




 Microwave bowl holders (waves, blue/green, red, chevron, or black flowers)  --  2 points per set
 These bowl holders are made with 100% cotton fabric, thread, and double layer of batting.  They are perfect for protecting your hands from hot bowls![/i]




Big boxy bag (paws, vintage ladies, or cassette) -- 2 points  
About 9" L x 5.25" W x 4.75" H.
I made one of these to carry some treats and a few fav toys when we travel with our dogs.  


I made this one using a reusable shopping bag and a random free motion quilted fabric lining.  The shopping bag "fabric" gives it a plastic-y crunchy feel and helps it hold it's shape better.


This one is a bit shorter and fatter 8" x 6.5" x 3.5".  Made with a Half Price Books cassette reusable shopping bag with a quilted cotton interior.  It does have a handle on the side (I just realized it doesn't show in the pic).


Minecraft Creeper panel  --  3 points  
I had planned to make this pieced panel into a pillowcase (explains the solid strip on the left), but my daughter wasn't really interested in Minecraft creeper decorations by the time I finished the panel, uggg.  Would be a good start to a lap blanket, too!  Approx 30" W x 23" H.


** SUPPLIES **

Washi Tape Notecards and Matching Envies (approx 4.25"x5.5") -- .25 pt for all
I got these in a random destash swap on another site, so I'm not sure who actually made them.


3 Rolls of Ribbon -- .25 points
All three!

Jewelry from far, far away!
All the way from Bremen, Germany from a pet- and smoke-free home.

**** closed ****


I’ll keep adding items as I find or make them. I'm always happy to make a custom necklace or pendant for you! All items will be sent via registered mail so there will be tracking provided for most countries (USPS for example is very good about it!) – but this also means that they will have to be signed for on delivery.


*****************************************************************************

Beaded items


Multistrand Necklaces
These necklaces are a very comfortable 53cm/21" along the shortest strand and 65cm/22.5" along the longest strand. Silver plated lobter clasp (I can change that for you easily), the tube thingies are at least free of nickel and cadmium.

Worn they look like this (in very poor lighting):
(https://flic.kr/p/U2rAp4)

Multistrand necklace teal (2 points) 2 available
(https://flic.kr/p/SJY5tE)

Multistrand necklace blue (2 points) 1 available

(https://flic.kr/p/TPU3er)
This one is a little shorter and has only 8 strands of 5mm seed beads.


Lattice Style Necklaces
clasps and lengths as pictured, cm more accurate than inches!


claim as ruby (clear silverlined seed beads in a deep red, no clasp, longer, 50cm/20") (2 points)

1 point each as is,
2 points if you want me to shorten/lengthen the necklace and/or change the clasp:

Many more shortish ones between 14 and 20 inches here sorted by colour! Will provide measurements for each. These are from my early days of beading, I'd say from 2004ish (I know I made lots during my honeymoon), mostly strung on linen thread (not stretchy). I've added pictures that show the lengths, the necklaces are in the same order in all pictures.

Blues:
Claim as Blue 1, 2, 3, 4, 5



Blacks:
Claim as Black 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7



Reds:
Claim as Red 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8



Yellow (orange hued, with iridescent accent beads, shortish)



*****************************************************************************


Other jewelry

Sweetheart Bracelet (1 point)
Silver plated chain, clasp, headpins with purple & grey glass & crystal and metal beads (nickel & cadmium free according to my supplier). Longish. This is from 2014, so the silver is a bit tarnished already. I can also add to or reduce the length.



Day of the Dead bracelet (anna.wahnsinn style) (1 point)
This is a brand new bracelet, longish.
Silver plated chain, clasp & headpins, various glass and crystal beads, skulls are "natural stone beads/imitation turquoise" (whatever that may be). Nickel & cadmium free again.
Again I can also add to or reduce the length.



Silmarillion necklace (.5 point)




Cobalt blue memory wire bracelet (1 point)
(one size really fits all)



Cabochon necklaces
(1 point each)


Bird cabochons, two each available. Claim as square bird or round bird.


Square cabochons: claim as green flowers, teal flowers, purple flower, purple damask.

More to come soon!

The solid, heavy settings are silverplated. These cabochons come with a silver plated chain necklace; brown, black or purple leather; or black, brown, pink, blue or green satin cord. Choose your clasp, either a silver plated or black regular lobster clasp, silverplated toggle clasp, magnet clasp. I also have a few heartshaped lobster clasps left! The length would is up to you, too.


*****************************************************************************
Miscellaneous crafted items

Rainbow seed bead stitch markers (0.25 point)
for a set of ten markers, 10 sets available. 5 sets for 1 point.
Beads are 3-5mm, rings 8mm I think.



*****************************************************************************
Supplies

Cabochons (pick 5 for .5 points or take all 12 for 1 point). Of course I can also make these into pendants/necklaces for a point! The cabochons measure about an inch across.



Liberty Sewing Box (never been used) 1 point

Shop is:  CLOSED!

Hi! I'm Ann, in Maryland, crafter of all kinds of random stuff.

All items from a house with a cat, but no other standard allergens that I'm aware of.

(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=732318)

Slightly used w/ slits at the back to thread on a ren faire style belt, closes by winding the ribbon in a figure 8 around the buttons.

cuff bracelets, 0.5 points each:


Claim as Red, Wide gray, or dragonfly

Clay bits:


Misc oddments:
round bits with leaf & seed head imprints,  .5 points: green, brown, or blue w/ holes for hanging (sort of intended as a tiny windchime top)
Star ornaments, .5 points

dark glazed small vase or bobby pin holder, 1 point

Grab Bags! (if you have a specific project or preferences in mind, let me know when you claim & I'll see what I can do.)

Papercraft:
*Vintage stamps: mostly US, mostly 1950s-1980s, I will fill a snack-sized ziplock baggie for 1 claim

*Collage bits: very miscellaneous assortment possibly including maps, old sheet music, vintage photos, puzzle pieces, origami paper, pictures I cut out of teen magazines in the 90s... whatever turns up in the file cabinet when I go looking.   A bunch of stuff in one of these bubble wrap-lined envelopes Amazon keeps sending me for 1 claim

Fabric:
*Quilting cottons: specify if you'd rather have small bits, large bits, or both.  (large will be fat quarter sized or more, there may be blue &/or flowers inherited from my grandmother.  Nothing too tiny unless you request it.) Again, probably filling up an 8x10-ish envelope, 1 claim

*miscellaneous: Little bits (& not so little bits) of all the fabric-related things.  Not kidding. Similar size to above, 1 claim

Machine Embroidery!!  2/claim unless otherwise specified

Fleece:

snowflakes, dragon, birch rondel, jellyfish (glow-in-the-dark thread)


teal tree (picture is a bit light/washed out)

Denim:

pink girl, 2 horses (these are too close together to cut easily, so you get both for 1/2 claim)

Felt:

Make beautiful things, stay weird, little but fierce


dragon skull, 3 candles


Tentacle teacup (glow-in-the-dark thread), swirly deer


Pink horse, "don't quit your daydream"


gear heart, I read past my bedtime (book is slightly wonky)


slightly puffy swirly dragon with bonus wonky "save the chubby unicorns" (two for 1/2 claim)

Machine embroidery, custom:

Any pattern I have from the pinboard here: https://www.pinterest.com/interfacemasque/embroidery-designs-i-have/

Most designs are 1 claim, if it's small enough to fit more than one in the embroidery machine's 4" hoop I'm happy to fill up the hoop w/ multiples.  Multi-part designs are 2 points, complex freestanding lace (teacup, boxes, envelope, succulent) are 3 points

I can embroider on fleece (lots of colors), felt, or quilting cotton, and I have a few decorative papers left that I can do embroidery on also.  Lots of thread colors.  PM me with color requests when you make the claim & I'll see what I've got.  Also feel free to reach out with questions before claiming.
