    I haven't gotten around to taking photos of anything, or even deciding what to swap in/out. I'll do so tonight.

    I think it is agreed that we'll sort this out Thursday.

    In the meantime - mymil, please take photos, and only take one Yellow Hook tie max (if you take any). Remember, replace with equal or greater value. If there is a question on value, the TSB participants will weigh in.

    mymil, squares are also welcome :slayer:

    This is what arrived. I don't see the wool ps I added last time, and I don't recognize the linen lavender one, so somebody must've swapped.

    Since I don't have an address to ship out, I hope nobody minds if I make my selection tomorrow. These are the ones I think are the best: [​IMG]

    Mymil - Looks fair. Did you see the Isaia pin I included in the box?

    Atlas and Stitch. Thank you both for your interest in the order of the box. As both of you are interested in the YellowHook Ties (great choices gents), the only "fair" way to do this is to see what you both propose adding to the box in exchange for one YellowHook tie.

    Gents, please post photos. The goal is to strengthen the box to ensure the strength and future success of the TSB for this iteration and generations to come.

    MyMil can then decide who to send the box to next.

    Stitch and Atlas - the box has the two Yellowhook ties and other goodies. You mentioned that you are both interested in the Yellowhook ties (you can only take one).

    Therefore, post a photo of what you WILL swap for the Yellowhook and keep it moving.

    FYI, to keep this geographically sound, once it goes East coast, the TSB will stay East coast until back out West.

    Let's decide by Friday AM, so MyMil can ship out.

    Actually, I think that's a pretty unfair request, especially in light of my having been skipped over twice now. I expressed my willingness to wait for Stitch to get the box ahead of me, but now you tell me that this would mean I have to wait for it to go to everyone on the east coast before I get my turn. Apparently I have a shot at getting it sooner, but only if you approve my offerings in advance after comparing them to stitches'?

    Can't say I'm feeling the love here boys, but I'll gather up a few pieces I've been thinking of putting in.

    i think in all fairness, it should go to me, and then atlas, or visa versa, regardless of what our additions are. with priority usps it only takes like 3 days coast to coast anyways. atlas certainly should not have to wait til the end of the round.

    and if atlas is cool with it, it can just go to me, and then off to him. i will take 1 or less YH ties, so he can at least have a chance to see them. i think my track record is pretty good.
