When did we forget how to trade, barter and haggle? It feels as though if it’s not new, it’s not the best. I miss trading baseball cards, pogs and marbles on the playground at recess. You got one set of them for Christmas or a birthday, then it was an endless trading post. We didn’t know it, but we were helping the environment (and our parents’ wallets).
So how can we reconnect with the playground exchange? Garage sales, vintage stores and Ebay are a few examples of some of our current resources. They have the old Rolling Stones LP I’ve been dying to get my hands on, but I still have to pay for it. What about somewhere I can trade the aging 8-track for the Stones LP?
A site called Swaptree allows you to trade books, DVD’s, music and video games all online, all for free. Basically you list what you have, what you want and begin to trade. You pay for shipping, but otherwise the site is free. I’ve started using the site and am pining for Point Break DVD. Can’t wait.
