What have you got to swap?
I have a red paperclip to swap for something else-What Have you got to swap for it?
I live in the Mablethorpe area (Lincolnshire UK) so any swaps outside this area will have to be by post for obvious reasons, I can sort out photo's via. email if necessary!!
All My exchanges will be photographed or filmed as far as possible and put onto this squidoo lens (maybe via youtube) for everyone to see while my experiment progresses.
