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.

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
