Responded to my free veggie pack. Followed instructions perfectly & sent out the correct postage quickly.
Had a great trade with Erica! She was very prompt sending her seeds (which arrived in excellent condition), very generous with what she sent, and very nice to deal with. I definitely recommend her as an excellent GW trader! :)
I had a wonderful trade with Erica! Seeds were generous and well packaged. Hope to trade again soon :)
I love trading with Erica! Her colorful seed envelopes are worth saving and the seeds are a generous amount.
She's a very special person!
Erica was a delight to trade with. Nice communications, quick mailing, seeds safely nested in clever hand-folded envelopes. I would trade with her again in the future. Jen
Had a great trade with Erica, even though she was listing for trades, I didn't have anything she wanted. She was still willing to do a sase and she even sent more than I was asking for. Will surely trade with her again. Many THANKS Erica
Great seed trade with Erica a few weeks ago. Timely, organized, good seed amounts. A very good new trader, highly recommend her.

Just had a great trade with Erica. Everything sent promptly and neatly and with a sweet card included. My veggie garden is going to be stocked up nicely thanks to her! Erica was just a pleasure to deal with - generous and kind - and I would highly recommend her to anyone. : )
Received trade quickly! Pleasure to deal with!
Erica responded to my offer of seeds for postage. She has excellent communication skills and was a pleasure to deal with. Hope to have the opportunity to swap with her again.
My second trade with Erica. Great communications, quick mailing, nice seeds. Thanks Erica, Jen
Great trade. Would definitely trade again.
She is such a pleasant person to trade with! I look forward to more trades in the future. :)
Have had multiple trades with Erica and would trade many more times. She's fun to communicate with and ships very fast--even Saturdays. Thanks, Erica!

Erica is a fantastic GW trader. I would gladly trade with her again in the future.
Had a great trade with Erica. Thank you!!!
We traded again. Erica is a very sweet person and so much fun to email. You will not be disappointed! :)
She added more than I asked for - so generous! The seeds came with a very sweet hand written card. Also, she sent the seeds in these very cute tiny envelopes. She's so crafty. She is highly recommended!
i've done 2 trades with erica. communication, packaging were top shelf. highly recommended.
Erica was a great host for the 2014 4th of July Seed Swap. She answered everyone's posts quickly and with great enthusiasm. She sent a great selection of seeds back with plenty of time before the 4th. I would highly recommend her for hosting future group swaps. Thanks Erica! Jen
Absolutely fabulous. Erica hosted the 4th of July seed swap and has totally outdone herself!
Erica's 4th of July seed swap was so fun! Her theme was any flower or vegetable that is red, white, or blue. I was pleased with the assortment she sent and would love to participate again. She is a super hostess and organizer. Thank you Erica!
Just had a great trade with Erica! The seeds were all nicely packed and labeled and she even sent extras. :). I'd be happy to trade again any time!
To begin with, Erica is an exemplary GW trader extraordinaire;...generous nearly beyond belief. If you are even remotely considering trading with Erica, you'd totally be remiss not to do so. Erica absolutely rocks! I can't possibly recommend her as an GW trader highly enough! - Should have posted this at least three days ago, really, but life gets kinda weird sometimes and I'm no more immune than anyone else. - Bottom line: You'll totally love dealing with Erica, don't pass-up the opportunity!
Erica's generosity goes beyond words as I have found myself nearly speechless reading her reviews. I too am new to Seed Trading and the forum. I hope to repay that generosity to her as well as to other new members. She's an Excellent member with a capitol "E" to follow as an example. For: a "Quick and Professional" delivery. "Extra Effort"... enclosed a warm and cheery Thank You card... and every package of seeds were individually wrapped up in a colorful display. I tried to make those little packets and Grrr, lol.
Today, I was at the local store looking to see what I could do to make my exchanges the more attractive. That's an impression she put forth. I will be more than happy to deal with her in the future. Thank You Erica for the fantastic experience!
Another uber-fab trade with Erica! I received her end of a plant trade yesterday and the plants she sent arrived in fantastic shape, happily rippin' ready for transplant! "Major thanks, again, Erica! As always, you totally rock! :)
Did a great seed trade with Erica! She sent right out and was very pleased!
We traded & it certainly rocked! Dax
I've participated in Erica's swaps and she is a wonderful hostess. She comes up with creative, fun games and she has excellent prizes. Erica has great communication and always tells you what to expect. Erica rocks!! I will trade with her anytime.
Regarding this year's (2014) Spooktacular Halloween RR Swap:
Yo-Yo-Yo!! My uber kewl package of Spooktacular seeds arrived today, just before "All Hallows Eve (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween)"! And to think, even though our fantabulous USPS, for whatever reason, delayed the delivery of my package, I was yet included with the rest of you in this totally fun swap,...thanks to Erica! So glad I didn't miss out. :) - "Major thanks, Erica!"
I have traded with Erica on private and round robin swaps, she has the greatest selection, a great sense of responsibility and she is always kind and thought full i recommend her, she make gardenweb a great place for trade and making friends :)
Did a trade and a round robin she hosted! Both went off great, she sent very good selections and even added some very unusual extras! Joy to be in her swap! and would trade again anytime!
I'm a little late :) but I had a Great trade with Erica! Fast shipper, great seed amount, and great email communication!
I love all my seeds from Erica's Spooktacular swap. She packs well, ships fast and is a great hostess. And astute judge of pumpkin carving. You will learn many things just from looking up the things on her trade list.

I've traded twice with Erica and she was a part of my Vine & Herb Swap in March 2014. She is friendly, fast and very generous when it comes to amounts to trade/give away. She is a attentive to details and a courteous communicator. I would trade with her any time!
Just did a swap in OBF with seeds rec'd from Erica! As usual, she always sends great things! Great person and trader! Melinda
EricaBraun (Erica) This lady ROCKS! We have been in more than one swaps such as OBF/FOTESS/Secret Santa Swap (SSS) 2014 and probably more but lost count. For my December birthday, she gave me a CUTE little porcupine card with a little mouse holding a small stick with a present daggling to keep away from the porcupine. TOO CUTE! She gave me not one but six baggies of seeds such as Forest Fire Sage Salvia Coccinea 2014, Lady in red Sage Salvia Coccinea 2014, Scarlet Sage 2014, Pink Salvia Coccinea 2014, Rose - Ivory Peach 2014, and Coral Nymph Sage Salvia Coccinea 2014 seeds. She is so quick in responding to e-mails and mails seeds in a very timely manner.
Mrs. EricaBraun (Erica) was one of my Secret Santas in the Secret Santa Swap (SSS) 2014. She gave me Tommy Toe and Black Plum seeds. Thank YOU for being so kind to me!!!
Erica sent a card with very nice seeds in the SS Swap. She is a relatively new member but participates with enthusiasm in every swap she joins or hosts.
Erica sent me some much desired caramel Bhut Jolokia and very tasty Black Naga ... these are hot pepper seeds. Christmas season rolls on, right into Ground Hog Day! Thanks, Erica!
Erica,...you always totally rock! Major happy dance thanks for the wonderful card and seeds you sent me for this years' 2014 Secret Santa Seed Swap! - Here's wishing you-n-yours a very happy and healthful new year full of special times and memories! :)
Good communication. A pleasant, speedy, hassle-free trade. I look forward to an opportunity to trade with her again.
Erica hosted a great Valentines Day Group Swap. She made it fun with contests and spent a lot of time and energy working on selecting great seeds. She even included many seeds from my want list and Valentines Day goodies. I highly recommend Erica for future group swaps. Thanks
As always, a great trade session with Erica. :)
I was in Erica's My Love Is Like a Valentine Seed Swap and Erica made it fun for all of us. She found some Rezha Macedonian pepper seeds for me, too. We were co-participants in the New Year Theme Garden swap, and she sent me many packets of nice seeds in that one, too.
Both of us are new to GW this year. I learn from looking up things I never ran across before, like (what did I just look up yesterday?) Mary E.
I also participated in Erica's Valentine Seed Swap, and just like her 4th of July Seed Swap, this one was wonderful! She is a thoughtful hostess who makes her swaps fun for everyone. I received so many varieties of seeds that I can hardly wait until spring to plant them.
Had a seed trade with Erica. She mailed very quickly in a bubble wrap and card.
Unfortunately, even with the "non-machinable" surcharge postage, the post office had run the envelope through the machine and some seeds are crushed.
Erica did contact me and offered to reverse the trade.
Did you contact her to let her know? I'm sure she would remedy the problem; Erica is a most wonderful trader who cares very much about other people and her swaps.
