Swap & Tell #2

I am hoping to swap a vintage bobbin of French gimp

It is time for another Swap & Tell where sellers can swap a sample of their merchandise with another seller.

A unique way to promote your shop.


Last week I swapped with Diana Adirondack Girl @ Heart!

A jar of lace with a Frozen Charlotte for a vintage tin with handmade tags.  I cannot wait to see them.

Looking forward to what wonderful items are available tonight.

Speaking of co-hosts, I am pleased to introduce you to Ann at Tarnished Royalty and Heather at Woods of Bell Trees . These lovely ladies each have unique and fun blogs and personalities, each with a growing following. Be sure to pay them a visit! Your link will show on all three blogs simultaneously, meaning more opportunities! If you are just now finding out about Swap & Tell, you can read more about it here.

And also! We’re looking for a 4th co-host! Tina of What We Keep had to drop out due to being over extended (miss you, Tina). So we decided to put a co-host spot up for grabs! Interested in co-hosting our brand new link up? Read more about our co-host opportunity.

I'm so ready to get to the swap, but first, please read the rules:

*This link up is a SWAP so please ONLY link up posts that contain a picture of an item you would like to swap and have fun shopping around! Links that are not for swap will be removed to preserve the authenticity of the link up.

*Link up a post from your blog, Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram that contains a picture and description of your swap item, using a permalink to your specific post not your general URL from your chosen source.

*Look around at the other links until you spy something that interests you. Visit as many as you like and when you find something you'd like to swap for, leave the other person a comment with a link to your posted item.

*Once you have committed to a swap, please edit your post with a note that your item is already swapped so you won't continue to get offers.

*Exchange address info with your swap partner. Each person will pay shipping for the item she/he is sending.

*Please be prepared to ship your product no later than one week from the time the swap ends. (The timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)

*Product reviews should be posted no later than two weeks from the time the swap ends. (The review timetable for services will be worked out between those swapping.)

*The review should contain a photo of the product received; your own scoop on the product; and a link back to the product, shop or person (their choosing). (The review for services may or may not include a photo, details to be worked out between those swapping.)

*Please include the Swap & Tell button or text link back to your host in your linked post.

*Etsy does not allow outside links within a product description. So if you are swapping a product from Etsy, the workaround is to post it on a blog, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram before linking up.

And finally, have fun and remember, it's all about promoting and helping one another. The value of the swap is in more than the products received, but in the exposure you will receive from reviews. A swap means a review for your product too!

Let the party begin!
