Alright, so I've recently opened up my own web shop to sell things I make, and I have an idea..

So, sometimes, I can't find the fabric for something anymore. Something happens so that I know I won't be able to make anymore of something for a long time, and so there are only 2 or 3 of the items left. But more people than 2 or 3 people want them (people procrastonate, you know how it is)

Instead of just selling them, first come, first serve, how about I send them on quests!

Lets say I only have 2 Voo Doo dolls left; I'll trade them for a Galaxy Express 999 poster instead of selling them! Or, since I mostly sell to my friends and most of us have passes to DIsneyland (and Disney will let you in the park for a hour for free for shopping on Mainstreet. Lots of 'for's right there), I could say, "You'll only get this scarf if you give me Cruella De Vil's autograph"

Is this silly? Or is this a good idea?
Thank you all for feedback!

And the earth was without form or glory.

It's an awesome idea, definately for friends. For random internet buyers, i'm not so sure they'd appreciate it tho...i would!

Ok, thank you! Thats what I was mostly wondering about; random buyers. Maybe if the webbie takes off, I'll do it once in a while or something... I donno.

More imput?
