Swapping + Handmade = Happy Holiday Barter

Handmade fingerless glovesI’ve already shared my love for SwapMamas here, the great location for moms to meet up and swap their gently used items. But for the holidays, they’re adding a dash of Etsy and going positively medieval: You can check out the Handmade Mamas group there to swap around your handmade skills and deck the halls with barter.

So maybe you knit, but you really want some pretty hair ribbons; or you make earrings but desperately want some cute bibs.Whatever you’re still seeking, chances are there’s a fellow crafty mama out there willing to work out a trade.

Happy holidays to all, and to all a good (handmade) swap. -Mir
