Start thinking Christmas Swap
Posted 21 November 2017 - 01:14 PM
Mailed priority. Included a book of stamps in case someone was light on postage. There is a little gift for you in there as well. Thanks for undertaking the most difficult of swaps for the swapmeister.

Thanks Kudu. Stamps should be well covered in this swap. People are being more generous this year. Better economy? JOKING... As far as gifts for SM, yes there were a couple I glommed on to but for the most part everything extra in envelopes except money went into a big box of goodies. I am hoping I don't just send someone's gift back to them but if I do it is an accident of chance but as I fill envelopes going out I will just grab a few items from the goodies box and include them. Pure chance on those items and there were some who sent a lot of nice stuff to go out to members. Funny thing is that as I have done for a few years I ordered a Christmas package from the Mad Scientist to include with gifts so everyone should have a couple of items under the tree. Maybe someone else can run a swap for flies tied using something in the Christmas packages.
As far as those including extra flies, these with one exception for display I have put back into boxes. My need of flies is minimal and my desire to gift this Christmas is great so it should be a good year under the trees.

Please keep its fresh roasted and ground Baxters coffee, Lake Cumberland Blend. Its for you bud.

Kudu, I don't know why that didn't hit me right away. I've actually ordered from them a few times and yes...even though I'm no coffee connoisseur but Baxer's was good. Hard to keep in mind ordering and run out from coffee jar and had to break down and get store coffee. If I read you right it will be used. Tried a few and only I didn't care for was their Morning Blend. I told the wife they should rename it the Morning Bland. I mix my coffee kind of on the weak side and that one just didn't have the taste of their other blends I tried.
ps...Or just thinking about being fair to all I could toss a few scoops in the envelope along with hair and dubbings..........

Guys, this swap has some extraordinary boxes for some lucky swappers. All of the boxes are great and I'll be putting on a separate thread soon to try to give a few options. There has also been a really large amount of goodies come in to add to the Christmas stockings. Not quite sure how I'm going to work that out but my plan now is to put everything in a box along with the Mad Scientist Gift Box stuff I ordered and make sure everyone gets a couple of random items to go under the tree also. On these items too if I can make it work I'll try to give a little choice in what you really use at your desk.
By the way, picked up like seven packages today from PO plus the return of those great steelhead hair wing flies from atx's swap. Great day.

I am glad it all worked out Vicrider. I am also looking forward to getting my package with some new flies to try out.
Thanks for hosting.

Couple have theirs in the mail, couple had personal reasons to drop but I think I took them off, otherwise we'll still have a great swap out of this.

Thanks Vic for hosting. I am starting to understand what a pain it may be.
