Bartering or Trade is giving, trading or donating stuff from other people in your surrounding area - could be furniture, clothing, bikes, DVDs, CDs, Videos, collectables, records, small animals, anything you want to get rid of and don't mind trading, barter for it or giving it away to someone who wants it. "One human's trash is another human's treasure!"
IDEA: If you no longer want something and are throwing it out...why not donate it to a human being rather than a landfill? If it is donated to you please offer to pay for any postage and handling.
Rule 1: Everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate for all ages. Rule 2: Follow through with barter or trade. Rule 3: If it is to be a mailed item, please at least offer to pay postage and handling. Rule 4: When you have something to give away or something you're looking for, post it in the forum along with an email address you check regularly - feel free to post phone numbers if you feel comfortable with that. Rule 5: Posting a picture along with the offer would be great, but if you don't have webspace to save pictures, a detailed description will do just fine. (I highly recommend photobucket.com - it's really easy to upload pictures onto your account from your computer or the internet and even gives you the tags you need to post them here!)Services could use a picture, examples or an email for a reference. Rule 6: Please label each item you list as "LOOKING FOR" or "HAVE" and also state your city or zip code. Rule 7: Once an item has been claimed, please post "GONE" or something like that at the end of the thread. It's up to the givers and receivers to coordinate a time and place for the goods to change hands. Rule 8: Please do not post about the sale of sex or illegal substances. Rule 9: I, as your moderator, can change or edit these rules as I see fit. Rule 10: NO SPAMMING OF GOODS OR SERIVCES! This is a barter/trade community. We are not interested in buying anything! If you do you will be reported to Live Journal for SPAMMING and deleted from the community.
