Dollhouse miniature swaps


Participating in swaps is nice way of collecting one of kind (hand-made) miniatures. Before starting swapping in this wiki we need to define the rules very carefully. If someone wants to start hosting a swap, please contact Johanna and discuss the rules of your swap.

See mailing minis for tips on packaging



This is the place for the picture.

Swaps in general

There are different kind of swaps.

Pair swap

In pair swap there is only 2 people who are swapping the miniatures.

Group swap

Let´s say there are 10 people in a group. All of them make 10 miniatures and send them to the swap organizer who then sends each participants miniatures made by 10 different people.

Surprise sender swap

The receiver does not know who is sending the swap for her and she needs to guess who it was.

Theme swap

The swap has a theme, e.g. toys so everybody are making toys for the swap.
