When I find a great piece of furniture, decor, accent, you name it, it’s tough for me to pass it up. As a result, I switch home items around often and like to switch things up. But there’s a dilemma– what do you do with it all once you’re ready to change it out? Enter Swapdom.
I wasn’t familiar with Swapdom until they asked me to help kick off their new home swap, launching today.
Swapdom is a website where you can trade pretty much anything you like (fashion, kids’ clothing, toys, and gear, and now home goods) for something else you want. I was so fascinated with how it works. You sort through the listed items other people are willing to trade, and when you find something you want, you post an item you’re willing to swap for it. The genius is you aren’t swapping directly with the person who owns the item you want– Swapdom lines up all of the items swapped within a group of people so everyone gets what they want. No exchange of money or listed values.
I’ve listed three items for my first swaps:
A pair of antlers
A pair of solid brass ducks
And a Jonathan Alder Happy Chic photo frame
I looked through the listed items and quickly found a jacket similar to one I’ve been coveting for quite sometime. I offered up the antlers, and I’m now waiting to see if anyone bites.
I’m so interested to see what I end up with, and who wants to swap me for some of my items. What a neat concept. Trade out what you don’t want for something you do, without spending a dime, with the exception of shipping and a $1-$2 fee. Brilliant.
Also as part of the home goods launch, Swapdom has a little challenge/contest happening.

Well, this sounds like the coolest thing around! I’m heading over to swamp something now!!
Can’t wait to try!
I’m dedicating this weekend to going through storage in my apartment!
Oh wow!! This is cool.. thanks for sharing.. time to join another valuable site.. (and to think this was something me & my sister do with our items with each other – should have thought of this on a global scheme of things – oh well)..
