I want to swap stuff

I would really really love to exchange souvenirs from all over the world.

I would happily go and buy some local souvenirs and send them to you, if you send me yours. We could do that with money involved, or without, like an exchange. Do you know web page where I could hang with people that want the same?

Totally local? I have souvenirs from all over including some interesting gifts from grad students. Tell me what you would like.

It would help if you mentioned where YOU were located.

Anything that is unique to your country. Whenever I go on a trip, I bring home little things, fridge magnets, little figurines, mugs, you know... anything you would find in a typical gift shop and bring home to your friends. Send me a message if you would like something from Croatia.

I'm in San Antonio, Texas. This is a cool idea.

Postcrossing.com also has forums for people who want to send things other than postcards to each other. I'll bet if you posted a query there, you'd find others who'd be happy to trade with you.

i would recommend joining travelpod.
then jsut make direct contact with lots of people that you want stuff from.
or they are a good crew that work there, they work full time on the travelpod org.
contact them and make a suggestion for a section to be added to travelpod.
