    June Secret Pal Swap - Come join the fun (Sign-ups close 5/31 at midnight)

    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 each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from. Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

    After receiving your Secret Pal’s details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. You will need to send me (HAV4Boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by June 17th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by June 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' 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.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight May 31 to join the swap.

    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close May 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than May 2nd.

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

    Have fun and be creative!

    Sorry for the delay this month. The first being on a weekend is always tough for me. All the names are out. Let me know if anyone has an issue.

    Have a great week!

    I forgot to add something that would be quite useful, an extra measuring tape.

    My SP riddle: my SP lives in a state that has a state within that state.

    I brought some fabric to work with me today to cut out my handmade item for my secret pal. Going to utilize my lunch to the fullest.

    Hi Guys,

    My package arrived today... Deborah (Gaijin) as always has been so generous...... I have posted a picture below. My most wanted item was some Kim Diehl fabrics as I love them and they are almost impossible to get over here.... and she sent some fabrics from two of Kim's ranges.. the newest range Seaglass is just to die for... I am in love!!!! I don't know if I will be able to cut them up... I think I might just keep them and stroke them!

    Name:  June 2019 - Received from Gaijin.jpg
