+krisandmel Posted July 8, 2006 Share Posted July 8, 2006 Hi everyone, I've seen a few, okay, several threads recently about the kinds of caches or swag that people dislike. (McToys, losing lotto tickets, lint, pennies, ad infinitum...) On the flipside, what kinds of stuff do you like to find? I really don't want to spend more than about $2-3 per item that I place in trade, but I don't want to really cheap out and leave stuff that people don't want. My goal is to leave things that people will take and use/appreciate, rather than just taking to drop in another cache. The local hardware store has a table near the checkout loaded with clearance stuff. For under $3 you can find sets of mini-bungees, small tape measures, keychain items, tiny screwdriver sets, small flashlights, etc. So far, I'm doing most of my swag-shopping there, instead of at the dollar store. I'm a bit of a photographer too, and I'm thinking of placing a cache that is loaded with 5x7's I've shot. To prevent damage to the prints, I'd probably seal each one in a FoodSaver bag. I suppose garage sales could be a good source too, as long as the items are still good. Anyway, I'd like to hear what stuff you like to find and/or stuff you like to leave. Thanks, -Kris Quote Link to comment
