I love using PBS, but am looking for something like it for swapping kids' clothing.  Anyone know of anything like that?

I don't know of a swap, that would be a great idea. I used to sell my kids outgrown clothes on ebay but the fees are to expensive now. I do still sell them on some kids clothing boards. There are lots of yahoo groups for this too...especially if the clothes are name brand. I made about $100 on 6 outfits over the weekend

A freecylcle(you have to be part of it and have a yahoo address) has families like myself that love getting free clothes.

I know our local freecycle is full of people who want free kids clothes, but I saw fewer who were offering others.

If you have a craigslist you might post looking for people interested in swapping and see if you get a group to respond.

I wish I had a swap site to suggest, but the non-media ones I know of have all fallen apart.

Only thing is, the requester has to pay for shipping, and you have to give the site a credit card number to charge it to. It's a great site though, and has the Flylady seal of approval.

At Yahoo Groups they have a group called Tradewithoneanother. You may want to sign up for this group and see how you like it. I believe I saw many posts about trading children's clothing....

Ewww. I don't like receipient pays on trade sites.  If I wanted to deal with transfering money around I'd just go buy/sell on eBay.
