I belong to Yahoo Group Swap Shop. One of the swaps they do is a birthday swap. In the fall we sign up for it, listing our 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices of items we'd like in miniature and the scale we would like. I, of course, asked for Raggedy Ann items and tea shop items and blue and white vases, dishes etc. As you can see, it was a lot of really nice items.
The birthday swap is by far my favorite. I love the anticipation.
