    Gift-it-on

    Time for a little more good will!:)

    What I propose is another little 'gift-it-on' (made the name up myself!:eek:) which works a little like this..............

    [​IMG]


    I will send this little gift (a mini stainless Trowel with pouch) to the first person who posts they would like it!

    ............. and the catch!? ;).............................. ............ the recippient then offers something to someone else and so the chain continues:D

    We tried this before and it got rather messy so to recap it should go like this.....


    • I offer a gift
    • Person 1 posts in the thread that they would like it
    • I mail it to Person 1
    • Person 1 offers a gift
    • Person 2 posts in the thread that they would like it
    • Person 1 mails it to Person 2
    • and so on....

    this way you only post for things you want and we don't end up with a 'waiting list'. First person to post they would like it gets it, simples

    so watcha think - anyone want to join in?? - there is no restriction to what you want to gift-on and I already have another little something or two in case I want to 'jump back in' ;) - fill yer boots friends!! ​

    Nice idea :You_Rock_ . I already have a trowel, but I'll keep an eye on the thread.

    Out of interest, is P&P paid forward or backwards? i.e. pay for the item(s) sent to you or that you send .... There are pro's and con's each way :confused::eek::confused:

    The only problem I see with this is people offering too early then the next person takes it and offers and it all gets a bit backed up! I'm sure so long as we are all not greedy it should work out fine :)

    True - my worry exactly....... as long as people don't offer till they have 'won' a gift we should be able to keep on track

    I'd be interested in the blade.

    In return I can offer one of my handmade leather strops.

    Only thing is that the mackerel decoration isn't quite as neat as I'd like - I must have had a bad night when I was doing it! This was for a commission, but I wasn't happy with the first mackerel I made, so made a second one. This is the first attempt.
