OK Ladies, here we go!! I had a fabulous response to the Vintage Button Card Swap idea and I think I've worked out the details pretty well. Mind you, I'm not perfect and I'm positive I missed something so will someone point it out to me?? :)
1.) Vintage/Antique Buttons only! NO new buttons please!
2.) At least 4 buttons on a card. They don't have to match, but should be similar.
3.) If your Button Card is HANDMADE because you do not have/can not find any vintage cards you will receive a HANDMADE button card in exchange. Tit for tat, so to speak.
4.) This is 'one card' for 'one card' swap. If it works fabulous, then I'll do a larger swap (ie.. 3 for 3) later.
5.) International floozies are more than welcome! Please come and play!
6.) CLOSED SWAP.
7.) You do not have to be a 'registered floozie' to join the swap, anyone can join!
8.) I will need all participants to EMAIL me their mailing address, website/blog address and what type of card you will sending (handmade or vintage).
9. ) IMPORTANT DATES:
- All button cards should be received by me by August 15th. (this gives ample time for International floozies to get their cards to me.)
- All cards will be shuffled around and mailed back out to you on/before August 18th.
10.) Do unto others.. SEND WHAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO GET!! I will do my best to distribute the button cards as evenly as possible (era, quantity, quality, etc..) Please remember the joy is in the GIVING- the nicer the bundle you send, the nicer the bundle you will get in return!
11.) PAYMENT: Unfortunately I'd love to pay the entire kit and caboodle but alas, I cannot. Soooo...
- Please include $2.00 for shipping and packaging within the US. You can either paypal it to me, hidden cash, OR include a postage paid PADDED envelope (about $1.50 for postage) with your button card.
- If you would like them quickly, include $5.00 for Priority Mail instead.
- Canadian Floozies please include or paypal $3.00.
- International Floozies please include or paypal me $5.00.
12.) Shipping: Having sold many buttons through my Etsy shop, I have had the unpleasant experience of the envelopes getting chewed up in the postal machinery. PLEASE send your button card in a small padded bubble mailer to ensure it's safety! (not too much at Walmart)
All button cards will be mailed to you in a padded bubble mailer.
If that is not an option, sandwich it between two pieces of heavy card stock. I'd hate to have some lovelies get damaged or lost!
13.)THE PLAYERS: Here are the floozies who have let me know already that they want to play, as I get in emails/comments, I'll add your name to the list. Once it's full, it's full! We are already over half way there!!
