  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

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..............




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:

St Austell.
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.
