:shock: THE MLPTP'S 2020 HALLOWEEN SWAP :shock:

* Update: Partners have been assigned. Please contact Skybreeze (or any mod) if you need help when choosing your ponies or how to pack up your boxes. Don’t forget to add a seasonal card with your box telling your partner who you are. ;)

How does it work?
Everyone will send/get one or several ponies from their wishlist, along with Halloween goodies.
The package must also be wrapped with Halloween decorations, etc. It's all about spooky fun, fun, fun!


Rules


- There are 2 spending tiers for this swap,
Tier #1 is $25-$30 (including pony/ponies and extras),
Tier #2 is $45-$50 (including pony/ponies and extras).
- These amounts do not include shipping costs.
- You must include a pony in the package.
- All items must be wrapped. Think about it... how FUN is it to unwrap gifts?
- Delivery confirmation or receipt of sending is required!
(This way if something is lost, we're not mad at you, but it will be the post office's fault.
For international shipping, as long as you keep proof of postage, you are OK.)

- When shopping for the pony, keep in mind:
It should be in as near MINT condition as possible!
(If you are unsure the condition of the pony please message myself or another mod.)

- Send a package that you would be thrilled to receive yourself.

I'm afraid of the Deadly Virus
So I'm not about to take multiple buses to get to Toys R Us.
Plus, I'm just in debt right now...

So I'm eliminated though if it were a Card Exchange then that would be in my budget and physical traveling abilities...

Don’t worry, we try our best to do swaps during most major holidays and usually in the summer. So you will have lots of opportunities to join one.

Boo. Hopefully soon you will be allowed to venture out. You and E’s box will be missed this time around. <3

We have other things planned for those who can’t join the swap this year. ;)

I would love to join, but unfortunately there aren't many cheaper ponies left on my wish list, maybe one or two G3s. :( Besides, I would prefer to swap with someone else located in Europe, as postage to the US or Canada that includes tracking (the cheapest option doesn't have tracking) would cost more than the contents of the box. :shock:

I think (I could be wrong here, sorry if I am :unsure:)you could say that you don’t want to ship internationally right? And then you would be paired with someone else in Europe so it wouldn’t cost as much to ship

Yes, I think you're right, but I don't know if someone else located in Europe would join as well. I've noticed that the Trading Post seems a bit less international than the Arena (but I still prefer it because it's more personal and technically up-to-date :)). Even if there were other European participants, I still have a wish list consisting mainly of hard to find ponies. Well, I could do something about that perhaps, if not having any ponies on the list that can be bought new in a shop isn't a prerequisite. :)

Oh that’s true, I suppose you could sign up but tell Skybreeze that you can only do it if someone else from there joins? Most of the ponys I’ll be putting in my list can’t be found in stores either cause they’re g3 and g1, that’s what online shopping is for! Haha though it does add shipping costs, there should be a My Little Pony store where they just have like a giant warehouse of all the ponys that ever existed and all you have to do is go find em :lolpony: Then nopony would be too hard to find

Y'all know it is totally possible to shop for everything required for a swap via the internet, right...? :winkpony: Members have been doing that years before there were any stay at home orders in place.

So, you can absolutely say that you’d prefer not to ship internationally. ;) In the event no one else from Europe doesn’t sign up, then I would let you know ahead of time and you decide if you want to continue or not. As far as your wishlist is concerned, you can always link your list but add things that are more affordable for people too. Maybe some MLP merch (Hallmark ornaments/mugs/cards/etc) in place of the traditional pony? Other items you might enjoy? I know that @Gingerbread is pretty complete as well and she often puts things like plush/pony wear/merch on her lists for swaps.

Still waiting on that pm my friend. :p

As well most store/big chains are offering home delivery now. As well as curb side pickup. I know I’ve taken advantage of both options for my groceries and general shopping.
(I might be a bit of a hermit now :blink: )

Overall, the Halloween swap has always been a fun event for everyone. With everything going on in the world we felt now is as good of a time as ever to do a swap. If you want to join, please do. We understand restrictions of life/Covid/medical and would NEVER ask anyone to put themselves at risk for anything. This is just a fun tradition we wanted to offer to our members again this year to brighten spirits.

For the spending tiers, is that local currency, or American value? $50 American is pretty different from $50 Canadian. :/
It’s $45 to $50 of your local currency. If you decide to purchase a pony outside of your currency value, the buyer is responsible for shipping of said item and exchange rates. These fee’s are not to be included in the end “value” of the box.
