I've been waiting for ages and just noticed that Swap Don't Shop has an event this Saturday! June 19th from 10am-4pm at 300 Bloor St. West (Bloor St. United Church). For women, it's $8 plus 5 swap items, and you get to leave with a bag. Add an extra $5 if you don't bring items for swapping. I think I will be bringing the items that didn't sell during my brief experimentation with ebay! (For guys it's only $5. Like haircuts, swapping is cheaper for the lads.)
I'm looking forward to it. And I can end the day enjoying playing in a Euchre tournament fundraiser for my End Cancer Walk team. I LOVE to play euchre. It reminds me of endless evenings and summer days when I was in my 20's and had all the time in the world to just hang out. But, we don't play it often enough now, mainly because it involves getting 4 people who know the game in the same room at the same time, without a bunch of other people who will feel bored/left out if they are not included. It was fun then to play for the sake of playing something, and to not worry so much. Perhaps I will cultivate channelling those values on Saturday.
