Looking to barter children's garb

Not sure if this is even in the right place, but while getting the family ready for Nor Cal Faire this past weekend, it finally dawned on me that we had saved every scrab of garb  our 3 kids have outgrown- and the oldest is 12, youngest is 7,  and with a couple of grandparents who also did faire and constantly sent over goodies there's a LOT of surplus kid's garb overflowing the trunk... Is this the right forum/board to try to barter such items? If so, is there any interest at this time of year, since faire season is pretty much over?  Or, would I be better off waiting until after the first of the year when people begin gearing up for the spring round of faires?  Thanks in advance for any info you collectively can provide.

You know on the index board all you read is "Looking to barter children"! ;D

Maybe if you put what kind of items you would like to have that could help. ;)

Hi, Kilted! A few of us are interested in kids' garb - both sewing it and collecting it. But this Faire & Family thread is usually pretty quiet.  You might have luck posting or cross-posting to Buy-Sell-Trade at

As to the timing, I don't think it matters too much. As our northern faires close, garbing season is heating up, so to speak, in the south, west, and southwest. :-)
Garb: lovingly hand-washed, gently pressed, and hung in climate-controlled closet. Mundane clothing: usually on floor.


Hmm... getting a message that that board is off limits to me... is that because I'm a new account?

Yes, there's a minimum post count to see Buy & Sell & Trade. I don't recall that it's much, maybe 5 or so? Pop in a few threads and say hello and you'll be all set.


Ahh, I figured it might be something like that... Thx much!
