Title: How it works
Post by: chainmaille on January 02, 2011, 02:40:04 PM
Basically if you have something that you are ready to part with post it here. Crafts, supplies, books etc. can be posted for sale, trade, or giveaway. Any details for an actual transaction should be handled privately by email or personal message.
I put this area up on our little forum so that our members could share their extra stuff with each other. For those of you with crafter ADD who have tons of stuff you'll never touch, time to clean out and let one of our fellow members have a shot.
Please post a new topic with details of your items and terms.
Thanks and let me know what you think.
Andrew

I think you are trying to tell me it is time for me to clean out my room!  :police:

I consider trades on all my supplies in my Etsy  store http://tutreasures.etsy.com (http://tutreasures.etsy.com).  Me and Janelle are negotiating a trade right now.  Thanks for the reminder to post it here.  Happy New Year everyone! 8) :D ;)

I just wanted everyone to know that the trade with Tut (LDG) went over fabulously. She was happy, and so was I.  :D

Sure enough.  I can't wait to see what we create from the new goodies we shared.  Thanks again Jan.

Oh ya buddy, I do linens for the wedding industry and post the yardage length that is usually the waste fabric from a job.  It's generally 8" by anything from 36" to 180" in length.  This is awesome fabric for quilters.  If you need a long piece of fabric for a border etc but don't want to buy the full yardage, this is a gift.  Email me, I have tons of it and don't take the time to post all of it on my site.  I have several jobs in the works right now with a lot of yardage available.

I handle all of my transactions through Etsy as well, URL is below my post  :) I have beaded and resin jewelry that I am tired of seeing in baggies all over my crafting table!  There is a wide selection in the SALE section as well!

Hi all! Just joined today and thought I would let you all know I have a supply store. I but a lot in bulk and I buy just because, well I buy too much! I have a shop on ArtFire that is having a sale till the end of the week. Stop by and take a look. I am not making a lot of money on my items, just selling the extras. My jewelry is my main source of income, stop by and take a look there too! Thanks!

This is a really great idea to do this in the forum.  This could be a huge help to me right now as I got laid off my job on June 1.

I know I have a tendency to hang onto some things that I never will use again. LOL

Thank you! :)
