    November Secret Pal Swap (Closes Midnight Oct. 31) Come join us!

    Please Fill Out A New Form For This Month.
    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 November 17th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by November 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 September 30 to join the swap. Please do not use a prior month’s form as I have made changed to the form.

    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close October 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than November 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!

    Generally I can follow the board and mark them off. This time of year work is busy and crazy so it is more difficult. We are over the hump. so hopefully it will be easier for me.

    SP in your state no more than two people can share a single drink. Ministers are forbidden from eating garlic or onions before delivering a sermon. Dishes must drip dry. Your single digit zip code is 8.

    Had fun today at our local community bazaar and found a few treasures for my secret pal. Hint: we’ve never swapped before.

    I have a request for the person who gets and the person who receives my sp package. I am not able to post pictures of the items received and sent so if you could take a picture and post them I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance. BrendaK
