I'm excited about joining Gimme Your Stuff.
I have gotten so many requests, and I'm sorry that I haven't replied to everyone. It has been really busy just keeping up with the swaps I do have! So I have decided to limit myself to one swap a month. I'm sorry if I don't get to you! If you really want to swap with me, just leave a second comment, and I'll try and get back to you!
Here's what I have to offer from wonderful Northern California:
-my handmade jewelry
-Jelly Belly jelly beans, their factory is nearby.
-San Francisco souvenirs
-Berkeley paraphernalia (nothing illegal!)
-Berkeley bowl goods (it's a famous supermarket, kinda like a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, but BIGGER!)

-yarn and yarn and more yarn
-cute tote bags
>> New things to offer from Berkeley, CA (San Francisco and the Bay Area)
