The night before she has a gathering of her closest friends and they organize the space, make signs and food and catch up.
The first time I attended, Elayne introduced herself, then announced that she had 14 baby Japanese Silkie Chickens that she would like to give away. I didn't know she had chickens?! I was intrigued. I quickly called my super-spouse and asked if he thought he could build a coop? He said yes, and within a few weeks we had a coop and gorgeous baby chickens! I've been hooked since!
Then the swap begins! Everyone has a moment to explain what they brought, how it's worked for them and then add any additional announcements. Regine and I were also taking flowers to plant at the Crestview Baptist Church across the street.
