    Default Idea: coth tack/clothes swap?

    Dunno if this will fly with the mods but, what about a coth swap thread like for tack and items one no longer fits in or wants?

    You could probably do it easily with a facebook page.

    The Bits and Barter Board on proboards was started by COTHers some years back. It has swaps and sales of tack. It doesn't seem to be very active at the moment, but could be used.

    I'm in. I have a dressage girth and need sliding side reins. Plus I'd be happy to trade some FS breeches! And other stuff that's been sitting in the "photo for eBay" pile for quite a while.

    I'm in too. I have a stack of full seats that are too big for me now, as well as sundry other riding clothes. I need a dressage girth, and can always use square dressage pads.

    I'd love to know what size FS breeches everyone has - looking for plus-size (2x-3x)! Also interested in draft riding tack. Nothing to trade yet, but give me time -- I'm sure I'll collect some stuff.

    Oh I have some stuff to sell too! And some stuff I need! I've listed stuff on Tack Trader, but I don't have many hits on it there.

    OMG I am addicted to English Tack Trader on FB

    If we started a COTH one, I'd probably end up quitting my job (or getting fired) and become a full time trading junkie and/or hussy!

    I think chocomare was one of the Bits and barter founders. Maybe if you pm her.
    I have used it in the past and think it's a great resource.

    I like bitsandbarter and have bought and sold there often, but for some reason, it has been terribly inactive lately. Maybe everyone is moving over to all these Facebook groups I see mentioned, but I refuse (I do not use FB)!

    After the invention of Facebook, I think most folks use the Bits and Barter Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bitsandbarter/

    I do like the BB, and wish more folks still used it. However our Facebook page has over 1,000 members on it!

    If anyone has any issues joining the Message Board, please contact myself or Chocomare.

    But there are those of us that refuse to do FB. I just placed some listings on the BB so hope people continue to check there. Kind of sad to see the BB with so little traffic.
