It's not Magic- It's BARTERING!

How do you turn dog treats...










...into a lovely peach cobbler?






BARTER!







So many of my fellow vendors at the Farmers' Markets have taught me a thing or two about bartering. It's easy and wonderful. Last week I traded dog treats for a bag of apples & traded the apples to another vendor for a peach cobbler. Isn't that great?! I barter with anyone who asks- even accepting things I dont really need. I'm not a huge apple fan (Greetings from WA state) but I traded them to someone who did need them & went home with a fabulous peach cobbler that I did need want.
Everybody wins.

I've been able to turn my dog treats into so many good things...





I really love the idea of bartering. In our crappy shaky lousy current economy it seems so logical to be able to exchange goods and/or services.  Why hasn't President Obama thought of this? I'd love to see the President's Council on Bartering established to encourage the practice.  I wonder if my dentist or the guy at the Chevron station down the street has a dog needing some dog treats...

"Hello, IRS? I understand the President has a dog......Have I got a deal for you!"


Dream on , Bev... but.....wouldn't it be loverly?

Hey, funny and interesting story :-) I love to barter, too. I started just like you, trading with friends and family. Now I use an online platform called barterquest.com and I can really recommend it to you and mazbe to the president ;-))

Oh, please don't say anything to any government agency about bartering. They'll figure out how to tax bartering even more than it already is taxed.

Let's just quietly do the small trading and let his royal highness (oops, mr. prez) be ignorant.

Anyway, fun way to get what you wanted. Once in a great while we can do some minor bartering in our business, too.

Too bad my mortgage company doesn't accept cookies!!
Sorry, I'm Debbie Downer!
I'd take a peach cobbler any day though...
