4. Once they agree, one of the two (decide in your PM's to each other) will send me who you are trading with and what you are trading.
5.Edit your list and take off, cross out, or add items. If you have 100 knitting needles and are only trading 2, then feel free to keep that item on your list until you do not want to swap it anymore. Only edit your list so that it is on the thread ONE TIME!!!

I have:

--Knitting Magazine.  Oh, do I have knitting magazines (and booklets and patterns).  I rescued them from being thrown away, but I don't knit.  I have 150+ from all decades from the 1950s to 2003.  Yikes.  And I want them gone, so prepare to get a great deal if you want any of these.  (Here's my classifieds listing for them: https://www.craftster.org/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=1801)

--Modern magazine clippings.  Great for collages, etc.  Lots of tv shows, stars, and other stuff.  See the classified ad here: https://www.craftster.org/classifieds/showproduct.php?product=1812

--Ephemera - tons of original vintage stuff.  Let me know what you're looking for.

--Three hole punched black construction paper.

--Wallpaper samples - I will never use all of them.  Again, let me know what kind of stuff you like.

--Quite a few plain, white/offwhite shirt buttons.

--Stickers - I don't use them much, so if you're looking for something, I might be pursuaded to part with them.

I want:

--Vintage fabric - funky but nice.  Let me see what you've got.

--Solid colored fabric - preferably cotton.

--Flannel fabric

--Old towels (doesn't matter what they look like)

--Tatting supplies, especially needles.

--Crochet hooks

--Trims and ribbon and buttons and things...

--Cool old hardcover books.

--Some paper/ephemera (always looking to expand my already ridiculous collection).

I'm in Oklahoma.
