swap photos!

The Free People Valentine’s Swap is coming to an end. I just received my gift today! I can tell swapping is going to be addicting. I feel like I could start a mini art collection this way…
So above are some of the photos from the swap. There are a hundred more here… Leave the swappers some comments. They made really incredible stuff. And keep on the lookout for the next swap. We have to do this again. Anybody have any good ideas for the next theme?

On an off comment – free people exclusives are LIES! I just saw an “exclusive” at nordstroms!! I feel so cheated :(

I really enjoyed making my item for the swap. I would love to do another one! I think that it would be fun to do a swap with a Spring and Summer theme. Last week there were two sunny and warm days that made me love life and every last bit of the world! I think that everyone could have fun capturing the euphoria of the onset spring and the delicious laziness of summer.

Next theme should be – easter or something involving dried pasta shells, glitter, and paste – I got it, MOTHER’S DAY! a day in celebrating the uteri of the world. To past, present, future, aspiring, inspiring females across the land… cheers.

About the FP exclusives…
There had to have been some sort of mistake. If you can tell me what the item is, I can check if the copy is wrong on the website. Thanks for calling it out though!

Congratulations! The Valentine´s swap have been a great idea!

If it is a mistake, there have been MANY. Two of your “exclusives” are currently being sold on-line by Nordstrom’s. Both your Slinky Double V and Long Sleeve Stripe Deep Henley Hoodie (sold as Rugby Stripe Hoody) are available at Nordstroms. Furthermore, your Pleated Cotton Tank, is available on-line at Urbanoutfitters (as F.P. Shear Pleated Tank) along with the Pointelle Cropped legging (listed as F.P. Thermal Cropped Legging)!! Don’t get me wrong, I love your clothes, but def. feel scammed. Check it out for yourselves: http://www.nordstroms.com http://www.urbanoutfitters.com (just search “free people”)

I checked out those sites and figured out the issue. These items are exclusive to our website because the colors we are selling are not available anywhere else, even though the style was available. I can see why it would be misleading. I will pass your feedback along and maybe we can work to make the exclusives more specific. We didn’t mean to scam you!

Thank you fpgirl for organising the swap, it was so much fun watching everyone else’s contribution and to participate!

amanda -February 14, 2007, 4:45PM

something pertaining to locks and/or keys, perhaps?

I love the idea of anything green. Maybe a sort of St.Partick’s Day theme, or anything having to do with fairy folk, magic,luck, nature, greenery etc.

It’s Valentine’s Day and I didn’t get my Valentine. Did this happen to anyone else?

erin -February 15, 2007, 10:05PM

wendy -February 16, 2007, 7:30PM

Julia -February 18, 2007, 10:39PM

I loved the Valentine’s swap!!! I definitely want to do more, it’s so much fun to make something for someone and then get a present in the mail!!!

sarah -February 19, 2007, 9:55AM

This was my first swap and it was so fun! It’s exciting to make something for someone you don’t know,hoping that they will like it :) I loved my gift and I def. want to be in the next swap! I like the Spring idea or the magic,luck,nature idea too.
I hope you all finally received you swap gifts :(
Thanks again fpgirl! :)

Is a single (1) month too close to call on a theme?
I would LOVE to participate in the next theme if we were to Celebrate the Astrological New Year, March 22nd this year. Got me thinking since the Lunar New Year was just two days ago on Feb 18!
* New beginnings
* Warm weather onset
* Be Bold, Original..

The Valentine swap turned out really great, I definately want to sign up for the next one! I also think a St. Patrick/green fairy theme would be a fun idea.
