THIS BARTER HAS BEEN COMPLETED!!
I am a Bath and Body Works fiend!! I love that store. I am addicted to the CO Bigelow Menta Body Wash. It is infused with peppermint and leaves your body all tingly. Last Christmas, they had a limited edition of the body wash called Ginger Mentha Warming Mint Body Wash. The only thing better than tingly would be warm and tingly right?!?!? So I bought the 8 ounce size of the body wash. I have tried it two times and it is just not the same as the Menta Body Wash. So here I am with a (at LEAST) 95% full container of the stuff.
That got me to thinking. I am really trying to reuse, thrift and re-purpose so why not add barter to the list. I have something that YOU might like and you just might have something that I might like. I have decided to launch a little experiment and we shall call it
The premise would be that, maybe once or twice a month, I would put something up here on the blog and will barter it for something that you might have. If the experiment does not work, we will just give it up. No harm no foul.
Now before you stop reading because you think you do not have a thing that I want I would ask you to please keep reading. I am very interested in bartering for: paper supplies, ephemera, glass beads, glitter or anything that is sparkly, crafts, old aluminum measuring cups and spoons, glass juicers, containers, your art, a fondue pot (I would rather this be a retro one and not a new one), coupons or anything else that you can think of. I will add to the list.
ALSO, I want to barter for things like Etsy store credit, a professional looking header for the blog, someone to move the mail part of the right part of my blog over just a tad to the left, something put behind my words so that I can change the background to anything and people can still see the blog and BUTTONS...blog buttons. I would love to have some for pantipalooza and swaps that I host.
If this really works, I will keep a list of things that I am willing to barter for on my side bar along with this that I already have that I will offer. I will be responsible for the postage to mail my item to you and you would be responsible for the postage to mail your stuff to me.
So up for barter today is the Ginger Menta Warming Mint Body Wash. Original value was $12.00 and I have used less than 5% of it. The description of the side reads: Ginger Extract 1%, Peppermint Oil and Extract 1%. Our luxurious lathering formula spiked with warming crystals surrounds the body with the radiant glow of comforting Ginger and a twist of refreshing Peppermint for a rejuvenating shower experience.
So what do you say? Wanna play?? If you have something that is not on my list feel FREE to throw it out there. You may have something that I do not know I want/need yet!
And even if you do not want to barter, please leave me a comment telling me if you think that this is a good or bad idea? How would you do it? What would you tweek?
..wants to past the REJUVENATING experience on to you!
