Roadfood trading Fri, 10/28/11 4:26 PM (permalink)
Because of my thread on doing a French meal for the next Mother's Day I was gifted with a wonderful glass Eiffel Tower bottle from Rebeltruce. 
 
LLEECHEF is helping me with my menu and maybe recipes.
 
What do I have that I don't use anymore that you'd like? 
 
What do you have that you don't use anymore that  I'd like?
 
This is just an idea but we could trade or sell things that are cluttering our life.
 
I have a bunch of kitchen gadgets that I don't use. 
 
What do you want?  Which gadget have you seen that you just won't purchase for yourself?  Hey!  I might have it.

    I wish you had brought this up when I moved in May. I gave away or just got rid of tons of stuff...

            At the Glee Club meetings we do a 'door prize' / regional specialty gift exchange.  We have swapped everything from Hickory Wood for BBQ cooking to Kentucky Bourbon, and received some great Maple Sugar seasoning and Illinois Sirup (their spelling) !
              While it hasn't been a swap meet activity, it has been fun seeing the stuff folks use to represent their home area in the roadfood context.
            Here's I-95 hawking his snake-oil from Virginia at one of the CrabCake meetings in Baltimore-

                Nah... Padre Rick F ate that can of Burgoo in Memphis a couple of years ago and it made him real sick.  We got a new can to put into the trading circle next time...this one is dated in the 21st century !!
                 
                We just finished the last of the Maple Sirup that LLoyd gave us at the 2006 Moonlite roadfood meet-and-eat. It was from his native Illinois and really quite tasty !

                  I had a lightly used Bread Maker that I just sold in a Garage Sale for $3 Bucks!
                  How many of you have a bread maker that's gathering dust in a cupboard somewhere? A fad that came and went.
                  There are 2 ladies that have opened a Consignment Shop for Kitchen items only here in Phoenix. I found a Griswold Cast Iron pan there!

                  Might be a good business for you to start up in LA Mar!!

                    I have traded Alaskan stuff with many Roadfooders.....Al the Mayor, Tiki, Bushi, Poverty Pete, Redpatti, JaniceDiana, and probably others that I don't remember right now.  And they always sent me (or came to Alaska and brought me) lovely foods from their regions.  All were awesome.  I encourage everyone to trade!

                      Foodbme, I like that idea, but rents are too high even though buildings have had for lease signs up while empty for months and montyhs.
                       
                      Withour pulling everything out from the back of the cupboard"s" I have a variety of garlic press-ssss.
                       
                      I have a couple of brand new, virgin Ginzu Knives and a couple of those wire baskets that you can use in a pot for frying or boiling.
                       
                      I've never owned a bread maker.  Too big!

                        Those ladies rent a building in a low rent section of Phoenix. Granted, rents are lower over here but it could still work. They don't lay out any cash until a product is sold. They pay you your percentage and keep theirs. they establish the prices they put on your stuff. Their only expenses are rent & utilities. They use the net and rely on word of mouth advertising and PR releases as a result of curious newspaper and TV people. It's a spinoff of a Flea Market or Swap Meet.

                          It's a good idea but I've already owned a business.  The rent and the insurance which I would have to have would eat up all the profits.
                           
                          Any cookbooks wanted?  I have a wall full.
