Welcome to the Creepy Mailbox!
CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WILL PERHAPS RE-OPEN FOR HALLOWEEN SWAPS NEXT YEAR
We put the 'care' in 'scare'!
What on Earth is our purpose?
Well. We like recieving things in the post from strangers. Not things like soiled underwear and dead animals (although, different strokes etc), but nice things that we might like. We're a bit unusual. We like things done a different way, and perhaps we march to a different drum beat. We don't like care packages. 'Care package' sounds like something your mother sends you when you've just left for University, full of things you'd purposefully left behind. They sound wholesome. Perhaps they would contain home-cooked biscuits and extra-warm thermal underwear. No thanks, we prefere our post to be a little bit more interesting. We put the 'care' in 'scare'!
So, what exactly do we do again?
We trade "s-care packages" (i.e. small boxes full of nice things) according to different themes, usually of a gothic/spooky nature (but not necessarily!). Our members either chose who they fancy swapping with, or The Powers That Be partner them up with someone else who's interested in sending/recieving a s-care package of the same theme.
Rules (boring, yes, but without rules there would be chaos)
Finally, remember that good communication is the secret to all working relationships. Keep talking to each other until the transaction has been completed. Any problems or delays should be shared with your swap-buddy as soon as possible.
