|I would be tickled - isn't that the benchmark?|
I will be stopping off at the post office today to mail what I now worry might be perceived as such simply because nothing in that box is physically large. The value of the box is almost twice that of the stated swap and contains things from The Sexy Knitter and Walt Disney World. Initially, it would have had just two items (one from each of the places) and two homemade items... but since all of the ugliness broke out, I went to the parks and picked up more things that were practically equal to the value of the initial box, but not much bigger in size. I even have cast member only items in there!
So here is what I learned -
- Don't participate in swaps just because you like the subject at hand.
- Be careful of groups that are simply swap oriented.
- Perhaps set up swaps with a circle of friends or within my own group.
- It appears my first swap from earlier this year was unusual and not the norm.
Oh well, I know the value of the box - it's way more than the price tag.
