Hi Everyone,  I'm Debbie.

I've been on PBS for a while and I'm addicted to books lol. 

I can no longer do the following crafts: Ceramics, Crochet, Plastic Canvas, Cross Stitch and a few others, my hands have been shaking sigh.

I have 100s of magazines, patterns, leaflets and they can't be listed in the regular PBS so I thought maybe I can do deals for credits. I have never done a deal and not sure the best way to do this with everything I have.  I was thinking 2 for 1 , does that sound fair?

What do you think is the best way to set this up?

I have a sleeping problem so I am up and around different hours of the day/night lol.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Have the doctors given you a diagonsis for your hands shaking?  The reason I ask is my   has DH Benign Essential Tremor which makes his hands shake.  There is medicine you can take for it.  If they haven't said what is causing yours, it is a possibility.

When you set it up let me know what you have. I can always use ceramic and sewing things.

Might be interested, I'd want to see a list first. I've got some credits coming to me when people recieve the books I sent.


2 credits for 1 mag? Or 1 credit for 2 mags?


Actually, someone is listing Bead and Button mags for trade here-they are doing it 3 mags per trade. I think I found in under a bead jewelry Posted Books search.

How are they mailing them?  I've 6 binders of crafting magazines.  I'd love to send them out for credits, but I figured having to use parcel post would raise the price high enough to not be worth it.   Am I overestimating the cost of shipping magazines parcel post or are they using media mail (and shouldn't be)?
