Announcing my "Very Vintage Summer Swap"!....

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

Last year at this time, I was hostessing a series of swaps that I entitled, "Very Vintage Swaps". In these swaps I was encouraging the participants to create swap boxes for their partners filled with "vintage- inspired" items. So with Summertime just around the corner, I am most definitely feeling in the mood for a bit of antiquing!....I am wanting to hunt up some "buried treasure" & bring it home and create a few fresh new corners in my house!.....You know how a few charming trinkets can bring all you have back to life!...So with this in mind I've decided to host a
"Very Vintage Summer Swap"!

Now with this swap, I am giving you all a little more time to sign up & a little more time to spend putting together your swap boxes!....I don't want anyone to feel rushed or stressed!...afterall, summer is supposed to be carefree, is it not?

I am asking that each participant fills out a detailed "information sheet" so that their partner can truly fill their box with vintage items that they will indeed love!....With this swap I really want you to go to thrift shops, antique malls & flea markets looking for sweet vintage treasures that will simply delight your partner!....( limit for your swap box w/o postage is $25)

* If your partner loves old dishes,... try & find her a few lovely "old dessert plates"!....
* If your partner loves gardening,...hunt up a small, antique "watering can" or some "heirloom tomato seeds"!....
* If your partner is into antique jewelry,...choose a pretty flea market "bobble"!...

And with this swap, please don't use items from Big Box" stores or shiny new items!....This should truly be a "Very Vintage Summer Swap"!...

I will allow "handmade" items as well as they are accompanied along with "vintage items" too!

And include a favorite summer recipe!.....

And as always I ask you to wrap & present your box in a beautiful old fashioned way!!!
Example: pretty wrapping papers...lovely ribbons...darling tags & hand-written notes....

I truly think this swap could be a delightful way to begin the summer season!! If you would like to join me, please fill out the information sheet provided & e-mail it to me at And do fill it out!... in detail!

You will have from now till Friday, May 28th to sign up! And please let you friends & fellow bloggers know as well!.....I will e-mail you each a partner on Sunday, May 30th. You will have till June 18th to make up & send off your "Very Vintage Swap Box"! I hope you all will want to join me in this swap!....Afterall, Summer is for antiquing, thrifting & making new friends!!

Your friend, Heidi XO
