OK I've noticed lots of people have been including foils in my trades (that I haven't requested).  Currently I have my foils listed in my swap list. Should I not list my foils and just send them as "extras"?  Also, I was trying to think of fun "extras" to send with my swaps/trades. I thought of candy, but am a bit worried about allergies. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks a bunch!

I don't think there's really a right way to do it.  :) I get plenty of swaps that have just what I asked for & I'm totally ok with that. But I've also gotten swaps where people include tons and tons of extras!

I list mine on my trade list just so everyone knows what I have, because some people (including me!) do like to swap for foils. However, I do include extras with my trades & if it happens to be one of the foils on my list, I just remove it. If that makes sense. I always do a little 'stalking' of the person I'm swapping with & try to include either a few foils or one deluxe sample based on their wishlist/posts. 

 

Candy is tricky! I feel like some sort of hard candy would probably be ok for most people, just not chocolate or anything. 

I've also received those twistband hair ties, stickers, pins, etc. as extras. Always fun! 

 

Honestly, I always just get excited when someone includes a thank you card. I think that's just so nice & thoughtful!

Thanks for the response, I do currently include a thank you card, and I like your idea regarding stickers or hair ties!

I tend to save my small foils for extras, too. I try to match them to people's wish lists where I can. I used to keep a list of them but I just have so many of them that it's kind of a pain in the butt to track.

    • Hello! I still wouldn't give up headphones. I can’t do without music) At my house I made a large audio system with a modern receiver. It gives amazing sound quality. You can visit the site to Compare AV receivers. Do you feel what opportunities open up for music lovers? I even argued with my friends about this. However, they acknowledged my point when they listened to the music of Lindsay Stirling in my home.
    • I have had no problem whatsoever applying false eyelashes (with adhesive) for the past 10 years or so of my life. For some reason within the last month absolutely no matter what product I use (lashes or adhesive) my falsies refuse to stick. I try holding them down and they simply spring off once I remove my fingers. It’s incredibly bizarre. I can’t recall having changed my beauty routine in the last few weeks and my skin is not oily, nor am I using oil based products on my eyes. Does anyone have any idea what’s happening or what I might try to fix it!? 
    • How many people - so many opinions. I really like music but can’t use headphones. This puts pressure on my head and my head begins to hurt in an hour. I NEVER saw my friends really high-quality headphones. They always have flaws in sound. Only the option from the recording studio suited me completely. This is a very, VERY expensive option. Therefore, I limited myself to buying a home theater with surround sound and a good audio system in the car.
    • Always welcome, can I help you with something else?
    • I sympathize with you. It’s not normal to control a loved one. I can give you a hint anyway.
