    We did this a couple of years back, and it was really fun/successful :D

    Everyone who participates will go to a tourist spot near them and buy touristy items (t-shirts, postcards, mugs, pens, keychains, etc) which they will send to the person on the other end of the swap.

    You'll be matched up with (hopefully) someone from the other side of the country/globe (if you're willing to ship internationally).

    So yay or nay?

    Here's the old thread for reference:

    As long as it is a decent price range, and we have enough time to do it in, I am all for it!

    Last time the limit was $10-$20.

    Really, the cost isn't important since you can pick up brochures, t-shirts for like 5 for $10 lol at most touristy places.

    We should probably have a minimum post count for people to participate with, also.

    Last time we decided that members must have 150 posts. Thoughts?

    Mandy you can still do it! Just send something that's mostly Canadian and not American.

    As far as the post count? No idea... I doubt anyone with less than 150 would want to participate anyways.
