Another Woman's Treasure Swap Meet!!!

Maybe it was due to me cleaning out my kitchen in prep for the reno...

Maybe it was due to the One World One Heart blogging event...

Maybe it's because I really look forward to spring (and the spring cleaning....

Or maybe it's just an Ellen thing...

But whatever the reason, I've been thinking of doing a virtual swap meet with all of you.

If you're like me, you have old stuff you'd like to get rid of, but can't bear to throw away. It ends up gettiing stored in the basement, in the garage or in the trunk of the car. Or, in my case, all three. Well, in the sport of slimming down our lives, let's swap it!

Post a comment saying you are interested. Then send me an email (ellen@aboutabride.ca) with a photo and description of what you will swap. AND the more you give, the more items you get to choose! On Feb 18th, I will post all items and their descriptions. Then based on the order you sent your items, you will get to VIP "shop".

For shopping, I will:
* divide you into groups, again based on order of initial entry
* send you an email as to when the store is open only for you

You will then send me your top choices of purchase. And I will then sort them out and give you and your item's previous owner each other's info for mailing.

Please note that there may be international guests to our party, so be prepared to send out accordingly.

Okay, let the fun begin! Remember to send me your item(s) and description asap for better choosing on your part by Feb 17th. The shop opens feb 18th.


  1. Don't think I'll join right now, but it's a cool idea! Lezlee

  2. Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. I was going to ask you to enter me in yours too, but I can't find your OWOH post (#277). Anyway, that's okay. I am enjoying my visit here. This is a very nice blog you have, and I'm sure I'll be back to read some more--perhaps on my trip home at the end of the magic carpet ride.
    P.S. I loved the Mitford series. I listened to all the books on Books on Tape, and at the end, I even tried the recipe for the infamous Orange Marmalade Cake, and it was delicious!
