Interference Swap Meet?

With the holidays now having come and gone, I've been (slowly) cleaning up and cleaning out, and I'm realizing exactly how much stuff I have. Books, clothes, household items, CDs, DVDs...you name it, I have it. I suspect others of us are in similar situations.

What I thought might be cool would be if we had a thread where people could maybe post something they're looking for--anything, really--and if someone else has that item, they could get in touch with that person. As well, people could post stuff they want to get rid of, and arrange trades that way, too.

This would be de-centralized--NOBODY has time to keep track of all this, LOL--and details could be worked out via PM or e-mail or messenger. It would give us an opportunity to clean out, to upgrade, and to get new stuff at minimal cost from trustworthy people we already know.

What does everyone think? Anyone want to try?

Sounds great! I'd have to hit my mom's basement to find some stuff I can unload, though.

Give me all of your old books and I'll give you some cinnamon apple tealights.


(Like I need more books.... I have about 20 I've never even read!)

Wow, I couldn't even begin! I have classics, contemporary fiction, plays, poetry, humor, memoirs, religion, philosophy, art... on and on and on.

The book that got me thinking of this was Barack Obama's autobiography, which I'm not finished yet, but I thought that maybe when I was done, I could swap it with an FYMer for something else...and then I thought, hey, why limit it to books?

I have that, believe it or not, but I doubt it's one you'd be interested in--it's just the regular Vintage paperback edition with the picture of the little girl's legs on the front.
