Update on International City Swap 2010

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Great International City Swap this year!

Here are just a few of the comments about packages that flew back and forth across the world:

Goodies from Canada

"I just received the greatest parcel from Nashville.  It was filled with magazines, a deck of playing cards, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a CD with a selection of local artists, a bag of goodies from the Loveless Cafe, some beautiful postcards from a local design group, a print from Hatch Show, some guitar picks, and a brilliant letter detailing all of the goodies in the box.   Each item came numbered with a little tag and then the letter described each item in detail.   I was so pleased with the package."

"Mine was great!  I took pictures, but I haven't uploaded them yet.  Juliette is from Ottowa, Canada, and she is a photographer, so she sent me a really cool picture that she took herself.  She also sent candy and a magnet--always good choices.  It was such fun!  I really enjoyed getting to know her and reading her blog.  Definitely sign me up for next year!"

"Anelle sent me some goodies from her home country of Swaziland!  Rooibos tea, photos, info on Swaziland, handmade candles, yummy candy and a beautiful beaded necklace!"

Colorado swag!

"I received my package today from Jenni today, and I'll do a post on it later on. She sent Elvis coffee, lots of little knick knacks from the Loveless Motel, postcard, magazine, jam, and a Goo Goo Supreme which I have not had in ages!! Oh, and a cd and a bandana too. Lots of lovelies!"

Everyone seemed to have a great experience and many have asked to participate again next year. Lessons learned: 1. give everyone at least a month to gather their goodies 2. Post shipping rates

A question for all: What time of year do you think would be best to do the city swap? (fall seemed pretty busy)

Thanks again!
