    June Secret Pal Swap - Sign-ups end May 31st at 8PM pst

    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. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation.

    After receiving your Secret Palís details, go to work and put together a package with
    something you think your pal would like. There is a $10.00 limit on this swap that does not
    include what you have in your stash. Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items.
    You will need to send ME (HAV4Boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them. This way I can keep my records straight.

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

    Packages need to be mailed out by June 15th, 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'. 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.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. I'm not sure if
    thatís true for every carrier or not.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

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

    My secret pal lives in the fourth largest incorporated city in her state. AND I just ordered the first part of her surprise, to be delivered directly to her. Hope she likes it!

    Okay, I don't believe Hav4 or Pamela have me.

    I have someone I have mailed to before, but have never had her as a secret pal!
