Bartering at the Market

A wonderful lady at the local farmers' market makes wreaths -- amazing wreaths. Today I brought this one home!
The fun thing is, because we're both craft vendors, we did a little bartering. She chose two pairs of fingerless gloves and a pretty wreath card, in exchange for that huge wreath. I think we were both pleased with the arrangement.



Bartering -- well, maybe this would be more aptly called swapping -- is so much fun! Now I have both a fall and Christmas wreath made by Chris! Here's a link to her Etsy store, if you'd like to see her amazing wreaths.

I've added her shop to my Etsy favorites! I love your wreath- so fun and different!
I do enjoy a good barter- it is becoming a lost art but fun when the other person is willing.

Bartering/ swapping, whatever you call it it is a good thing.
Too bad the middle two photos don't appear at least not on my computer. I wonder why not.

That's really pretty! I can't see the two middle pictures either. I used to do a little swapping at the market too. It was fun, and didn't have to use part of my hard earned money to bring home something special. Going to visit her Etsy shop now.

Kathie, I find it less stressful than exchanging money with a friend, for some reason. Makes it feel less like a business transaction :)

Well, I don't know, GM! That's odd. Maybe because I lifted them from my google photos and copied them here? Sorry about that! It's pictures of the two pair of fingerless gloves.

I thought so too!

Exactly, HP. I'm happy to swap yarn and a little paint, but don't ask me to let loose of my cash, haha! I'm gonna try to go fix those pics.
