The Big Page Of Bartering


Rules:

  1. I have the right to turn down a trade offer at any time.
  2.  I aim for a financially equitable trade; a $30 pendant should be traded for $30 worth of something else give or take. If you're not sure what something is worth you can make an offer and we'll barter from there.
  3. Remember that the dollar value of trades have to be reported as income on your taxes.
  4.  Please write clearly with complete thoughts/ideas. Or as close as possible. Thanks!

If you'd like to offer a trade just send an email to palaeosinensis@gmail.com .

Experiences

I crave memories. I'll gladly trade my art for opportunities to go places, see things, or do things I normally wouldn't get the chance to. Own horses? Offer a trail ride for me+my husband. Do you have guest tickets to a theme park? Let's trade! You've got accommodations for something or somewhere you aren't going to use or are free for you? I'd love to the opportunity to go.  Do you work with animals or hunt and can take me along to watch? Please take me with you! Are you going on a collecting trip or doing species counts? If you'll give me a ride & a place to sleep I'll gladly trade art. The world is a very big, very vibrant place I need to see more of.
