I have never done a SS swap but I would love to be included in the Spring one :)

June is approaching fast! Should we plan this to be in July more in the middle of the summer?

Maybe the middle of July? That way we can celebrate the 4th without having to worry about tracking numbers and shipping.

I was thinking of staring when the current circular swap concludes?

 

That sounds fine to me, I love swaps  :wub:

Since the circular swap is winding down. I wanted to get your opinions, do you all want to do this like a circular swap where we take items from the current box, then pass the box to the next person. Or would everyone prefer a secret santa type swap like we did this past winter?

I am good either way

I love the secret santa, buying for one person is so much fun! We can make it super simple too, like maybe start a thread where we can all list allergies, etc. that way we don't need to go through the hassle of elfster or making a separate wishlist anywhere. Just a thought, I'd like to see anyone else weigh in as well.

I really want to keep the circular swap going. I'm in for this round and probably every round after!

I am in depending in dates. I'm sure the swap would work out either way because I could swap my position if needed. As for the secret santa, love the idea, would love to participate, but I will be away for about two weeks starting in later July. So that just depends on timing. But I will do it if the timing works.

I would love to do what @@Bizgirlva said on the circular swap topic, having the circular swap box continue and maybe doing a secret santa. For the circular swap box I feel as though the whole summer is very tricky to get a date that would work for most. Also I would love if we could change up the order of where you are on the list. Excited for this one! (p.s. I am on the secret santa bandwagon, hopefully more people would join as well! The holiday one was super fun :wub: )

It's true summer is hard with vacations and what not. I'd love to hear ideas on how we could make it work, possibly with a flexible swapping list or people sign up for a one or two week time slot. It's a little tricking depending on USPS to meet the 2 day shipping window each time.

@@Queennie, I think that Reija draws names and they go in that order.  Maybe if we kept going during the summer months, and say the next person that is supposed to receive the box is going be out of town, maybe the next person could get the box and that person that is out of town would take their place.  Or if you are out of town, you fall to the end of the list. So that way the box does not get held up.

So are we leaning towards no secret santa and just continuing the circular swap? Cause the circular swap is fun but ss swaps are more personal and its nice being surprised, IMO. (Plus I need a bit of time to stock up for the next circular swap.)

Maybe we can do both? I'd love to continue the circular swap and also do the secret Santa. Both are so fun! Just depends on if we have enough participants.

I'm in for the summer round.

 

I agree it will be hard for those taking summer vacations. Maybe after the list is drawn up, each person can submit if/when they are on vacation so everyone can keep that in mind as the box makes its rounds. And then we can agree that you can swap out with the next person in line in order to keep the box going and not miss out. I'm sure there are a lot of ways to manage this, just my thoughts.
