Mend and make do

The enterprising Zanazaz from Have dice, will travel... recently set the ball rolling on a bold new-and-used venture, the Scavenger's Depot.

It's up and running now and ready for exchange of anything sci-fi-, fantasy- or horror-related, from gaming materials and miniatures to books and posters, even toys. The first items await.

I've added it to the fuller spectrum blogroll on the left. If you blog, why not link up too? It might be too late for Christmas, but it could make dreams come true in the New Year.

When you're in the market, don't forget Santa Cruz Warhammer also has its Barter Bucket, which is an excellent place to search for Games Workshop products.

If even the sky is a landfill, this is the way to go.

Thanks for the shout out. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the sister Yahoo group, the Scavenger Zone up. However, if anyone has lots of stuff to trade, then I can make them a contributor to the blog. Well, even if you have only a few things you can become a contributor as well. Just send me a message.

Thanks for the recommendations, Porky. I've traded through the Barter Bucket successfully a couple of times and was quite satisfied. Best wishes to Zanazaz with your Scavenging endeavors!

@ Zanazaz - It's a really good idea and ought to do well. I'm definitely keeping an eye on it.

@ Papa JJ - I've never used the Barter Bucket, so it's good to hear the approach works in practice. I think there's a bright future for this kind of community collaboration.

Will definitely have a look.
