Barter Bistro - Day Four / Setting up the Barters

The Red Paper Clip Barter Story was True!

I researched the story I heard years ago about someone trading a paperclip eventually for a house. Dang, that story was real! It took him a year and he got in the Guiness Book of World's Record Book for the most successful trade.

I would like some worms and I have a confirmed appointment at least tomorrow am to barter some jewelry and moccasins for something that will fit in the El Camino. I hope this man likes what I have and that I too will feel I am getting a good deal.  It is not like I am trading a Fieval Goes West VHS tape or dental floss.

I am buying hubby breakfast at Whataburger for going with me and to be there at 9:00 am sharp.

There was a worm tower on Craigslist that I called on today and it was sold. Rats.

Bought a potato vine for $2.60 to snazz up a planter to barter and an adorable, ceramic plaque at Goodwill that was a NIB saying that said "People Who Do Yoga are Flexible" for $1.50. It was very cute and will hope it will be a trade-worthy item in the future.  I do not do Yoga.

I read a hub that baked bread is a successful item to barter. I do not know how to make bread but I still have the breadmaker from 20 years ago.

We have discussed if Henry (dog at Mutts and Meows / see Day Three) was available.  Nooooo, we just need one wonderful dog.  Really, hubby, really.

Following along. Like the way you think here, getting things to enhance a trade item is ingenious ...
