It works similiar to this site, but it is a Yahoo group.  Direct sales company reps are a part of the group, but they are not exclusive.  Basically, you send items out for credits to use on other people's stuff.  Sound familiar?  Great way to get Avon items, handmade items, etc without any money changing hands.

You can also swap gently used items for credis as well.

I swap handmade soaps and Kat's Coffees items on the site.

Check it out.  If they ask while evaluating your membership, tell them that Jennbarr told you about it.

It is quite a mix of things.  You can swap gently used items as well.  I have seen clothes on there, toys, books and more.  There are a lot of handmade items as well.  In addition to the before metioned soap, there is at least one lady who crochets and makes towels and such.  It is a mixed lot of available items.

You are required to post 3 listings up for grab a month.  New items can be anything from a shirt you purchased and no longer like to a playset your child never used.

 

Hope this helps

Jenn,

Another great way to swap is to join Box O Books feature here on this site.

I am in my 2 year there and still enjoying swapping books!
