A few days ago, Cybele over at my beloved Candy Blog posted about a new site called Gimme Your Stuff. Gimme Your Stuff is a new "swap site." These swap sites help people from wherever trade items (food, candy, CDs, whatever) special to their locale to people from other parts of the country or world. Moving on, here is my swap list.
-The first thing that comes to mind is wine (I live about 2 minutes away from 10 or so wineries), but that's probably very difficult to ship internationally and I'd generally like to trade with Europe, where they already have lots of the good stuff.
-The next thing, is, of course, US candy. That's pretty self-explanatory.
-A lot of people don't have access to the wonderful variety of herbs and spices here in the States, so I'd be happy to offer that, if anyone wants it.
-Magazines, newspapers and other printed items.
-Anything else you can think of.
In return, I would like:
-European or Japanese candy
-From France or Italy…Fanta (Greenz, Lemon or Red Emotion flavors)
-Printed items (especially from France, as I'm learning French)
-French snack food, because it's so different. I remember the time in France when I bought peanut flavored potato chips.
