I have to say that I LOVE the trade room in the etsy chat forum. I've gotten some cool stuff. one time I spent 3 hours in that room talking to people and trading . One trading buddy is in Rhode Island. Since i am in Massachusetts we get our trades the day after we send them :) I trade mostly for pendents or something I can reuse to make jewelry.
I received a purple shell pendent and a glass sea horse pendent from http://UnexpectedTreasure.etsy.com
A fairy pendent from http://AllThatGlittersbyKML.etsy.com
and magnets from http://glamazon08.etsy.com
