2. To give people the opportunity to own some of these objects.
SWAP | SHOP serves the second purpose - offering you the chance to buy or swap something for the things you see on the site. It’s a pretty simple process, simply look through the blog, if you see something you like, copy the URL (web address) of the blog post, and email the link and your offer to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have swapped items with other people in the past, and it’s quite easy to see the sorts of things I enjoy (cameras, photography, vintage good), but you could also trade me things that you have made, like art work, prints, cards, illustrations etc.
If you’d like to purchase something, then have a quick look on eBay - see the sort of prices they are going for, and drop me an email with your offer. I’ll consider most offers - but please take into account that I will have to package / post these objects taking time out of my day -so sensible offers please!
I might be using the SWAP | SHOP logo on items that I am happy to part with, but if you see something you really love, then email me, I might be feeling generous.
I will probably work out further rules, but for now, let’s see what happens.
