    January Secret Pal Sign Up

    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can
    choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner
    every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you
    receive from. Failure to send you package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps

    You will need to send Me a PM when mailing and receiving also your SP thanking them. This way I can keep my records straight.
    You also should take pictures and post in group.

    Packages need to be mailed out by January 15th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by January 10th Firm
    If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

    For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift'. Usually on the Customs Declaration there's a box you can check. Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace).
    The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

    As an aside, padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. I'm not sure if that's true for every carrier or not.

    Our International board members are welcome to join the swap.
    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    All names are out if you did not receive your SP name please let me know ASAP. As I said before I will not be joining in this month as I am still unable to go out and do any shopping. Hopefully I will be back next month.
    Good Luck have fun post pictures and don't forget to let me know once you mail and receive and let your SP know once you receive.


    Thank you

    Secret Partner a few things for you to use to find out if I am your partner.

    If I was to take a road trip to come visit it would take me 9 hours and 26 minutes in light traffic to reach your town. That is 552 miles from me.

    Your town is one of the top 10 best towns for families.

    your town was the site of the first train robbery in your state in 1878

    Good luck guessing.
