I had the pleasure of participating in a trading game last nite. This event occurs every Thursday starting at 9 pm eastern and is sponsored by EtsyFriends.
Here's a run down of how the game works:
Once there are 10 stores participating, the moderator will request everyone to Convo your 4 choices of shops you wish to trade with. Then the moderator will match everyone up in order of convo received, (if you send your convo early you will be pushed to the end of the line for not following the rules. The moderator will post the list with your name first and the store you will "buy from" next to it.
When you see this list you will go to that store, pick out an $8 item(s) (NO MORE AND NO LESS than $8 total before shipping) you will add it to your shopping cart and check out, BUT DO NOT PAY! If you pay for the item, which means that you did not read my instructions and you will be out of some money.
Everyone will pay to ship the item from their shop, if you are worried about not coming out even; don't list a heavy $8 item.
*you MUST have at least 5 items listed in your store for $8 each for your buyer to have the option of what they want
*You may ONLY pick one $8 item from the store you are given.
*You can choose items under $8 as long as they equal $8 before shipping!
*PLEASE IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO STICK AROUND DON'T ASK TO BE ADDED TO THE LIST
*PLEASE so we know where the sales are coming from in the notes section put TRADE GAME.

They also have a separate shop that members donate items to sell for charity, but are much more than that. Use the tag "etsyfriends" to find items listed by their members.
