|My set up|
There were 85 swappers last week and I snagged a spot at the front of the room to set up. This swap, I brought the last of my square foot garden produce, which was three giant heads of Chinese cabbage. I also packed up four Kombucha starters and eight half-pint jars of my sugar-free spiced apple butter. As I learned from my first swap, it's a good idea to go with a variety of items individually packaged in an inexpensive, but attractive, manner. The jars for the apple butter were free courtesy of Katie at Live Half Full, so this swap was full of win for me. I went with custom QR tags again this time and had such a great time talking to the other swappers.
There were so many unique, delicious, gourmet treats and bites at this swap that I didn't know where to look first. People really upped the ante this month - there were gorgeous displays, beautiful labels and, of course, great food. I saw several types of kombucha, paleo donuts, lots of allergy-sensitive offerings and even dog treats! I was stuffed from all the sampling before I ever left the swap.
So what'd I get? Lots:
|Honeycomb toffee, Mexican hot chocolate donuts, pumpkin spice marshmallows, savory focaccia, challah, homemade twix cupcakes and a bag of kahlua brownies and caramel chocolate chip brownie|
|Peppermint mocha hot chocolate mix, cranberry conserve, homemade regular and jalapeno cheddar pretzels, pumpkin spice syrup, bulgogi kimbop, root beer concentrate, red pepper walnut dip, blueberry chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter buckeyes|
The next swap is Dec. 7 and I'm already plotting my plan of attack. Hope to see you there!
