Local Product Box Swap

Boy do I have an exciting announcement to make today! We bloggers are from all over the country and world, which is great because we get to see what life is like all over the place, but it's so sad we can't teleport and visit each other. So until I can build a teleportation machine (don't hold your breath), Kelli, Miranda, and I have the next best thing: a Local Product Box Swap! Kelli had this AWESOME idea and I hopped right on board. Local products are the BEST (I live near the Amish so we have the best stuff!) and we thought it'd be fun to have a swap where you and your partner get to exchange cool stuff that you can only buy locally.

Important Dates

- Tuesday, January 28th- Sign ups begin and continue until Sunday, February 2nd

- February 6th- Matches are announced.
- February 6th-20th- Communicate with/blog stalk your partner.
- February 26th- Boxes must be mailed by this date.
- March 5th- Box reveal link up goes live!

The Rules:

- Open to US and Canada residents only. 

- Make sure you email your partner within 48 hours of the match-up.
- The items you send must be new, and local to your area. If you find that this proves to be extremely difficult, at a minimum get products made in the USA (or Canada if you're from Canada). 
- Get a tracking number when you ship your box. 
- Include a note to your partner describing each item and why each is special to your area. 
- Please spend at least $15 (before shipping) on the items. 

- Grab a button and link up with us on March 5th with a post showing the awesome stuff you got in your box!

  1. Oh, I like this idea! I'll be in a new state then though haha I'd have a million ideas for New Hampshire, but nothing for Arizona!

  2. I love this idea too... I'm from New Hampshire so it's easy haha

  3. I love this idea but I have commitment issues. Either way I will love looking at all the local products when swaps are revealed!

  4. I love this idea! I don't buy local enough so I'm going to have to come up with a game plan for local products haha. We do have a fantastic downtown area though full of small businesses.

  5. SUCH a cute idea! I'm going to start researching specific MI things! :D

  6. I LOVE this idea!!!! Definitely will try to see if I can participate in this!!


I love reading your comments and I always respond, promise! Just make sure you're not a no-reply blogger :-)
