An "item" is a particular thing or set of items sold at a single price. For example, a ˝-lb of cobalt blue glass cane - price $20, is a single item. A set of 3 baggies of frit for $10 to one person is a single item. In a daily thread, (8) individual items at a single price each would be allowed.
3. A proper post should include:
(a.) All information describing the item you are selling or seeking to trade;
(b.) Price of Item or what Item you are willing to swap. (The Glass Swap Shop is NOT for the taking of Bids or for taking orders on items.)
(c.) Photo of the item (if applicable); no links please.
(d.) Contact information.
4. When your transaction is complete, please click the 'report' button at the top of your post -- the red (!) triangle -- and fill out the form, to let the Moderators know that the post can then be removed.
5. All posts expire and will be removed within 2 weeks.
6. Please refrain from posting your needs in someone else's thread. Start a new thread for yourself. The Glass Swap Shop is NOT a chat or technical forum!
