    I was watching a show the other day and saw that a European light bulb will last for close to a thousand years in a Canadian socket due to the fact that use 220 and we are on 110 volts so I naturally thought “I should see about getting someone to send me some”
    And it got me thinking, we are all from different areas of the world, maybe other people want stuff from Canada, or wherever anyone else is.
    So I decided to give this a try, I have set this thread up in hopes that we can share cheap items amongst ourselves, I say cheap because since there is no way to verify goods sent in exchange of other goods it would have to be on a “good faith” basis, in other words you would have to be willing to risk the loss of what you sent and maybe not get something in return.
    Items I can think that people may be interested in might be - Canadian smokes (yes those evil things) small denominations of currency, Canadian Coca-Cola products, Canadian stamps… and various other small inexpensive items that would be cheap enough to send worldwide.
    I suggest that if anyone is interested in an item in particular or if you have items to put up for trade to just post where they are from, and what they are looking for or what they have, then if anyone is interested in trading with you they can PM or e-mail you with information on the exchange.
    I do nnot recommend putting personal information such as your address on here and if it is something you are concerned about maybe look into getting a PO box.
