After reading the "unused pastels" thread, I wondered about a different approach.

We've all bought sets of pastels that include colors we will never use.

This is the web: we could set up a kind of trading system. I list my unwanted pastels, you list yours, and we set up a trade, perhaps 1 for 1, or, if we're trading, say, Unison for Rembrandt, maybe 2 Rembrants for 1 Unison. Keep it as simple as possible. Maybe we need to consider condition, too: only very good to excellent condition pastels for trade.

If anybody else likes the idea, we could try it on a small scale and see what happens.
