OK, desperately in NEED of a fancy, well, a nice party dress, the bigger the size, the better -thinking XL up would be OK. Been looking all over, and I don't wanna pay a fortune nor want any granny type of tent.

If you have a nice dress in the back of the closet, I can trade you anthing for it. It can be a loan.

Either that or I'll take the wedding dress and dye it.

Anyone has those child-gates? The larger the better. Will swap for coffe, cash, too. :D

Have an extra battery and charger for Samsung cellphone. Make an offer in books or candies.

Oh, and I gained weight, so the dog pouch does not fit anymore. If there is a trim Forumosan who wants to take doggie as baby in a pouch, lemme know.

I miss reading this thread. I have so many things to swap, and no one in India believes in swapping or reselling :loco:

I'm teaching at a local area school and I would LOVE to get some English-language materials for beginners, like flashcards, flipcharts, posters, little phonics readers... Does anyone have something like this they are no longer using that I could swap for homegrown vegetables, baking, homemade drinks? Or an IKEA computer chair?

I have some US second grad level stuff, if you're interested. Mostly, I have reader workbook type things. I've given away quite a few, but I'm sure I still have a couple more.

Belgian Pie and Housecat,

Yes, I am interested in both of your offers, thank you! Please send PM if you find the items, and let me know what kind of things you would like to swap.

In need of household stuff...
hangars, dishes/cups/utensils, ice cube trays, a desk lamp (mine broke last night gah).

I can swap for uh.... heh. Yea, I just got here so I don't have much except cash to offer ... um... I can babysit :D!

Updated list, all to a good home, no offer too ridiculous:

Doggie carrier, vest style. Fits small dog under 5kg, and a trim owner.

5 plastic drawers, sort of like this, but each drawer is independent and can be separated, or stacked up, depending on your space:

a computer table -currently being used as clothes hanger- with bookshelf on top. has seen better days, but still useful. more or les slike this: http://www.archiexpo.com/prod/bestar/co ... 02045.html
