white elephant swap: flat rate box filled with magazines, notions and fabric that was still good, and usable but not something they wanted anymore, and sent it to a person on the list.The person then took what they wanted out of the box, and put something of equal value in the box, and then send it to the next person on the list. It keeps going around, until it gets back to the person it started. a good way to get rid of some of your stash, and get new stash at the same time!
