Believe it or not, I didn't get that many shots during Sunday's swap! The lighting wasn't optimal, plus... I was just talking to everyone too much. Ha! So, on the left is a photo of all the wonderful things I was able to swap for.

Thanks so much to Marika's Coffee House in Manitou Springs for letting us use their space for this swap! The turn out was amazing.  Everyone had a really great time and commented on how lovely this location was. Thanks to Leslie of Crunchy Betty for being our special guest host! As always, many thanks to our lovely co-organizer Wendy for helping.

Our swaps having been going on since late March of this year and I can see friendships continuing to grow after each swap. I love seeing familiar faces and hugging everyone, and this time there were quite a few new participants! Thank you all again for making these swaps so successful, but more importantly... SO FUN!

Anyway, our next swap is scheduled for Sunday December 11 and Lindsey (The Goat Cheese Lady) has invited us to have a swap at her place! This will also be a potluck, which is optional if you can only stay for the swap. Be on the look out for RSVP emails, with more information, at the end of November.

In January, we will be taking a break... but we will be discussing future plans for swaps in 2012. So, I hope to see you in December!

LOOKS WONDERFUL TO ME. My haul had the bread, magazines, soaps, lotions, and potatoes too, plus some dried herbs and some great canned goods that were no sugar for us. AWESOME DAY! THANKS again for having is out. What a great way to self promote but find sources as well. Looking forward to more swaps...Gary and Marilan, Easter Egg Acres.

I brought homemade "spicy" chai mix and caramel sauce. I came home with instant cocoa mix, blended vegetable soup, cranberry orange sauce, spiced ginger cake with rosemary apple butter, "pumpkin" custard pie with ginger whipped cream, carrot cake, a handmade mug, mixed greens, homemade goat milk soap, and pickled multi-colored peppers. :)
