One of my favorite things about doing craft shows is trading with other vendors. It doesn't really even matter if what I trade for is something I needed or even wanted in the first place. I love trading for something handmade. I think there is something so cool and special (you can tell I have a thesaurus on hand right?) about having something that someone put their time and effort into.
Well on Etsy I have had a few requests for trades, sorry to some that I ignore (oops), and I have not really sought them out myself, but the idea is still the same, I am sending something homemade out to someone and in return get something really cool! Well last week I traded a cocoon for this cool clipboard from the Etsy shop Slim Digm Designs. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6032967 She has lots of cool designs, and I really like the idea of the alphabet one for a present for your child's teacher. It comes with a bracket for wall hanging on the back, or a hole with a wooden dowel to prop up.
