How To Use Item Descriptions in the Swap Shop

Many times people just post items on the swap shop, simply stating, "Here it is.  Here's the price."  However, if you truly want to see an increase in results on the swap shop, try telling people a little more about the item.  Some questions that might help spark your creativity:

Where did you you get the item?
Is there something special or unique about the item?
Why are you selling it now?
What history does the item have?
Where is the item located?
Will you deliver, or is it for pick up only?

These questions are just starters to help you think more about what you are wanting to sell.  Don't just post a picture and a price....TELL A STORY!!

Happy swapping!
