At the recent ChiDope, Zyada mentioned that she thought the board could use a white-elephant-type jewelry swap. Great idea, says me. I was cleaning off my dresser last night and ran across a couple of things that I think would be perfect for something like this - f’rinstance, a silver and garnet cabochon ring that is too large for my ring finger, but too small for the rest of my fingers. Worth maybe $10, so it’s not really worth jumping through hoops to sell, but I’d like for it to find a good home. Same for a spiffy tweed cap I picked up a while back - too big for my little pinhead, so it just sits there, sad and unworn.
So, I suggest that participants describe items up for consideration, and any willing barterers can figure it out from there. Other than that I can’t come up with a viable way to do it, as there are size and allergy considerations when it comes to jewelry, so it can’t really be random/surprise drawing. Plan improvements are warmly welcomed.
