|Looking to do something new with your odds 'n' ends? Howabout a trade?|
In sorting through garage sale leftovers and potential thrift donations, I’ve been considering a few options.
- I can rent a space at a flea market to sell some previously loved junk.
- I can restock my Etsy shop with a few toys, books, bags and a miscellany of other vintage wares.
- I can simply bag everything up and donate it to Goodwill.
Sure I’d like to make a few bucks when I can. And Lord knows I’d like everything to be neat and organized. But I would also like to try something different. I’d like to consider the possibility of a trade.
I’ve seen other bloggers attempt a virtual trading post, such as the always innovative professional thrift blogger Selena of Apron Thrift Girl. And I imagine things can get complicated in terms of comparable value of the goods involved. But I’m willing to give it a whirl.
In the next few weeks I plan to create a separate “page” on Let’s Go Thrifting dedicated to available trades for anyone interested in participating. I will use InLinkz for other bloggers to post and share links to any items they would be interested in trading. I will also extend an invitation for non-bloggers to participate via email. Just send me photos and descriptions and I will post the goods on your behalf!
Rules and further details will be posted in the near future, as well as a preview for some of my own junk ready to be traded.
Interested in the Let’s Go Thrifting Trading Post? Gather your goods for a photo shoot, jot down some details and prepare for a fair trade.
What would you be willing to trade-in?
