It's a dying way of dealing with purchases and deals, but it's still around -especially with siblings. I think it's an art that should be reintroduced. Everything should be negotiable. Recently, I was able to make a trade for some work that I wanted done for some baking that someone else wanted done.
We all have things that we don't need any more and things that we do need. Wouldn't it be great if there was somewhere that you would be able to say what you have to give away for something that you needed? If there is such a place, please let me know. I think this is a great way to stay frugal.
That said, I am looking for two different items, should anyone come across where I can buy, trade, or whatever with the owner I would love to know. I am looking for a flute that works still. I use to play and am having a strong desire to play again, but can't find a used flute to start out with to make sure it's what I want.
I am also looking for a seamstresses dress form. If anyone knows of a used one, please comment here or email me at smile_zil at yahoo dot ca.
Tell me, what have you been able to barter or trade with and for? Do you think this is a practise that is alive and well, or something that should be brought back or just left alone?
Enjoy your evening!
