Sounds like a good idea, but how? I am using what I have left, my husband has a collectors car he wants to trade for a motorcycle     Federal Reserve Banking Systemwhich seems to be a 'good luck' event . .

Working back to a cashless society wouldn't be bad . . we hate banks.

Great! Does your hubby have a picture(s) you can post here? I'm going to start a thread called WHATCHA GOT?! Take the details and description there after you get them together ?

Classic cars have sentimental value to many. People drive clear across the Country to make a deal and drive their dream car home.

Hi AJ!!  Welcome girly!!!!    Glad you joined!!!!     [ send green star]

I just received the invitation to join this group last week & saw the request for co-hosts. I let Donna know that I believe in bartering-in fact since childhood-and mentioned a couple other quaifications for hosting so I became a host too. I recall as a child seeing a dollar bill in my mother's hand & thinking we should give each other things instead of using that stupid money. I admitted to now liking a few dollar bills in my pocket but still believing in bartering. In fact I have a lot of stuff in my apartment & storage unit that I could use to trade in for other stuff if there were a store that would do that. paula  [ send green star]
Paula November 13, 2006 12:58 PM

Hello! November 17, 2006 7:15 AM

I'm Diana, and I like the format of this group.

I have been trying to accumulate some good items to sell on E-bay but increasing shipping has me a bit worried about this. I'm trying to get creative with that and would like to share shipping ideas here, also.

I have beanie babies, also, and have been meaning to make baby/small child quilts to go along with them for a functional fun gift.

I have several quilts in various stages and MAY consider selling/bartering, but only to good homes! I have alot of craft and quilt supplies and may consider bartering a few...

Oh, yeah, this is supposed to be an introductuion...............

HI! Happy to see you here! Please invite those on your friends list so we can get a lot of people here to Exchange with.  The more people the better!

If any of you need to Exchange on a local level because of prohibitive shipping costs or large items, you can find those members in your immediate area by checking any group on Care2. Members in your area (if any belong to that group) will show up in the lower right hand corner if you scroll down on the groups home page. Invite them to this group individually by going to their profile.

Hi, Sherrie! December 31, 2006 11:22 AM

Thanks for inviting me, and HOW DID YOU KNOW?!  My whole house, my whole life, is early yard-sale and thrift store and I wouldn't want it any other way!  God meets my needs in such wonderful ways, and I make so many friends doing the yard sales.  Last Friday my daughter-in-law complemented me on a plum-colored (50¢ from a yard sale) sweater I was wearing, and I'm not used to being told at this weight (90 extra pounds from steroids) that I look good.  Yesterday I was feeling house-bound and went to the second hand store where, in the window, was a lovely fuzzy sweater (I have nothing like it) green with large plum-colored blocks AND my size.  $2.50, a trip through the washer, and it's waiting for me to wear today!

Well, I can't put my ex-husband on the board, he's taken (big surprise there!).  My cats are also not up for grabs....  Let me get the hang of this and maybe we'll have some fun!

Hi Everyone,  

Nice to join this group as I think a cashless society would be part of the 'answer'. 

I've just moved and gotten rid of tons of stuff...gave away what was wanted, and the rest to the dump.  However, I'm curious.  Do you ship things that someone else wants in another place, is shipping does that work? 

No one lives near me.  I'm behind the 'redwood curtain' up in northern California.  Very few people and very little technology where I am.  I have to have satellite to connect to the internet.  Anyway, people give me things all the time and maybe I'll have something of interest to someone else. 

Now it's after the dread 'holiday season' and I'll have more time to keep up. 

Oh - one more thing.  The link that I get from this group in email does not connect with the group.  It hooked me up with a women's group that was closed to new members.  Not much sense in that.  I had to navigate to find this group again.

Yes, now that Christmas is behind us the New Year is a great time to clean out our domiciles and the cobwebs clogging our mind of excess possessions.

I'm going through my DVDs now....

As to shipping, unless one lives in the same area, each party is responsible for their own.

Any other questions, feel free to start threads on the topic if there isn't a thread already.

Hi everyone. I am Kathleen and live in the St Louis area. I think this is a great idea and hopefully everyone can benefit from someone else's "junk". I personally LOVE the stuff other's seem to be tired of. I once was in a dumpster of an office building that was doing a total remodel and they were throwing away some beautiful paintings and frames that were worth hundred's of dollars and would have been gorgeous in my home, when I hear, " Come out of the dumpster". I kept working on my stack of things I was so thrilled to have found and wondering if I had really heard someone say that. It was about 2 in the morning and surely no one else  was here. Bang! Bang! Bang! I looked out over the top of this huge dumpster and it was the police! Guns drawn, pointing at the dumpster! I thought I was going to wet my pants!

I was told that I was stealing and I had to leave so that was the end of my dumster diving days! lol And I had to leave those beautiful frames in the trash!

This seems like a much safer place to trade or exchange things. No guns!

Thank you for the invite Donna. I usually just free cycle or donate, but this is a great idea.

Hi Laura, Glad you've joined us November 09, 2008 5:35 PM

I used to Freecycle too until I discovered it was causing pollution from gas emissions due to too many people doing it. 30 people going out competing for one item isn't cost efficient either, especially when some of them are hoarding what they find or reselling it on ebay, yard sales or their own second hand store.

I would never put any kind of appliance or electronics on the curb either. Scrappers cut the cords off and then the item really does end up in the landfill instead of being reused by someone who needs it. What a waste.

A Clubhouse is more efficient, cuts down on pollution and keeps the items safe until someone spends their points on them.

Thanks Laura H for the invite. Good idea. Right time. We need as many options as possible like freecycle, local currency, barter groups like this, now that the global economy is so massively deflating.

hi all... January 06, 2009 10:43 AM

I think this is a great idea. I hope that I can get actively involved in some exchanging! It shouldn't require a crappy economy for people to want to reduce waste! Whatever it takes, I suppose... Anyway, I'm glad to be here! Cool! Thanks for the invite Real Donna!

newbie - Introduction March 26, 2009 4:05 AM

Hello I am Guillaume Besson.
I really like the idea of this group.

A friend of mine and myself have decided to do our bit too to change the world. We've created a website where can all exchange favors for free.

It's quite simple. You help someone first in order to get helped by anyone else in the world.

Example: I change someone's window so that anyone else can do my translation in Spanish. The translator gets some clothes sent to him/her for helping me before etc...

I thought you might like the idea! it's called

All the best

anonymous Glasgow was on the right track November 16, 2011 5:04 AM

I used to live in Glasgow, Scotland and they were the best at exchanging.  People would use charity shops to donate to and buy everything and anything in.  They also had places where people would leave 'stuff' so that others could come and find it if they needed it.  Lastly, we had a site called GumTree.  You could buy/sell/ barter/ donate anything on that site. 

It's about time the rest of the world started using this sort of exchange.  One person's junk can really be someone's treasure. 

I'll spread the word.

Thanks for the invite Wild. When I was in business I used to barter with electricians, plumbers, sign makers, etc......good idea, everyone was always satisfied.

Got a muscle car that your tired of?

 I have a 41 Chevy 2 dr, Special Deluxe str 6 and a 51 Packard conv, 327 straight eight [not to be confused with the Chevy 327 V-8 same cubic in.] Looking for a 68-70 Chevy Malibu 396 SS four speed. Do the math even trade no money exchange

Thanks for the invite! I am a avid beader who is looking to start my own business this year offering custom jewelry. I have sold pieces in the past but with my job and other interests most of my pieces have been for personal use.

On a side note, I never buy anything new. (well hardly ever) I shop resale, estate, and garage sales for most of my clothes and household goods. We build a house a few years ago and I think that it's perfect. The only "store bought" items in my house are a new mattress and couch/loveseat combo that I got from a discount furniture store. I have managed to collect some pretty impressive and unique pieces over the years and I could not be more thrilled! It's in the family... my mother owns her own estate liquidation business.

I donate everything useable to Goodwill although it's always a different one then I shop at. I once picked up a piece of pottery to buy when my husband reminded me that I had donated it a few months ago! LOL

I would love to start a household and clothing swap locally with like minded people!

Again, thanks for the invite!

A SHOUT OUT TO THE REAL DONNA November 19, 2011 4:47 PM

Donna was the first one I met here,last march. And because of her friendship, and encouragement in the Nature Provides group, I am now a care2 regular,with a group and petition of my own. Would like to thank you,Donna,for everything,including the invite to this GREAT GROUP. Used to belong to a trade association, when I owned a small b&b in maine. It was a fabulous success, such a wonderful idea..... everyone benefits, and nobody gets scammed.
