WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

I would LOVE to host this one or two more times before cold weather makes it impossible to trade. Don't you want some new varieties to play with all winter? I do! Let's make this simple, add what you have, take what you want! Keep the box no more than 2 days, ship by priorty with delivery confirmation. Delivery confirmation allows us to track the box at all times and with violet leaves/plantlets, it's a necessity. I'll start the box out with 25 varieties, keep it at that at all times. And please, if a variety perishes, replace it with leaves or a plantlet. Leaves or plantlets can be added, it's up to (what you have extra). I can't promise that plantlets will be in the box at all times, but you never know what someone will be sharing with you! ALL VARIETIES MUST BE NAMED, clearly labeled.

Let's get this started, going soon! Even if we only have a few joining, that's still ok. The box will travel quicker. I'll have it occasionally stop back here for a refill (and to check to make sure dead packages are removed).

I can't wait to start! Just think.. exchanging violet leaves, plantlets for the price of postage only! Nice way to get new varieties in your collection!

I'm working on the box late tonight and preparing the paperwork (all the labels, addresses) DC papers, etc. The box will go out first thing in the morning. I have a lot of stuff to do today, or I would of worked on the box earlier. I'll post the Priority delivery confirmation number (so everyone can track the box) in the morning too.

Here is the box flight list-

I'm having the box stop back home every few stops, so I can refill it (add new varieties) and pick out some new ones too! I'm so board with my collection! ;) I can't wait for this to start!

REMEMBER- Keep the box no longer than 2 days! Always post here when the box arrives, and goes back out. Also post a Delivery confirmation number here so we can track the package. Other than that, LET THE FUN BEGIN! Start trading!

Nancy,
The box just arrived! I was only able to peek through it for a second. The Ramblin' Peach trailer didn't make it, it smashed during transit. If possible, (and you join in another RR), I'll have you right behind me again, please send me a leaf or another baby (if possible). I've wanted Ramblin' Peach for sooo long! I LOVE trailing varieties, especially the "Ramblin' series" ;)

Hugs,
Deb

I'll start up another RR tonight or tomorrow (*Round #2).
I'll let you know when box #1 goes back out. I didn't have a chance to go through it yet, it just arrived.

Be back later!

RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Hi Brenda,
I just was curious to see how fast priority's running, and the box's DC# came back as "no record of this item." Could you double check on the DC number? Thanks!
Priority seems to be taking a little longer lately, that's why I thought I would check to see the status of the box.

RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Deb,

I went to check on it yesterday as well and saw that is said 'does not exist' then i looked at my receipt and apparently they did not like the DC sticker i put on it and placed a different one in its place. When i checked it, it had already been delivered. I'm glad it made it safley.

Brenda


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

I just assumed it was a typo error (wrong number). ;)
Glad the box made it so quickly!
This RR's moving fast! ;)

RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

I received the box last night. Our wonderful post office person left it by the door. I had no idea it was there! He usually rings the doorbell. Our weather is cooler, and everything in the box is fine! I'm going to repack it tonight with all new/FRESH varieties, and mail it off tomorrow. I'll post a delivery confirmation number when the box get's mailed tomorrow.

This is so much fun!
I'll post more tomorrow!

Deb


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

The box is delayed until Monday, sorry. Our weather changed drastically! It dropped to the low 40's every night, and tonight frost is expected. I've been busy bringing in all my outdoor potted plants that I wanted to keep. The cold front is only temporary, by the weekend it's warming back up again. I'll work on the box Sunday night, when the kids go to sleep- refill it with fresh varieties, and mail it out on Monday morning. So sorry for the delay! I just couldn't send the box out with the temps being that chilly! Anyone else having weather problems?

I'll post the DC# on Monday when the box back out.

Deb

RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Sorry about the wrong #. I think I left out a 0.

I hope that helps and I hope you get the box soon! I sent it out Oct. 10th.

RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

The robin arrived today with the box. I picked out some, replaced about 5 and will send the box out on Monday. I am afraid the way priority mail is going it would sit in the post office over the weekend, since I wont be going back to towm till Friday. I will post the del. number then. Thanks! Corinne


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Hi Corinne,
What state are you shipping from? I'm trying to gauge when the box will arrive so that I can get my plants ready to put in the box. It's supposed to get pretty chilly in NY next week *brrrr*

I think I'm last before it heads home to Deb, right? Do you have a sneak peek for me? The suspense is about ready to do me in ;-)

Donna


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Label/Receipt Number: 0307 0020 0003 4317 6091
Status: Delivered

Your item was delivered at 10:58 AM on October 14, 2008.

Hi Corrine,
If possible, try to get it back in the mail ASAP (Friday shipping would be better than Monday). Monday is 5 days away, plus add time on for priority shipping (another 2 to 3 days). It's getting really chilly in LOTS of areas! Including mine! ;)

Deb


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Deb, my box was picked up, not delivered.. on the 15th, I was home on the 14th so it should of been delivered right to our home. (unless we had a sub carrier and he was just to lazy to deliver it...lol. ) This is the first time that has ever happened,plus our postal carrier knows if someone isnt home to leave it at my sons house right next doo. So, I am not sure why it is saying it was delivered on the 14. I will get it back in the mail ASAP, like I always do, but I cant see it sitting over the weekend! I'm in northern Wisc. its getting cold here as well. Corinne


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

Hi,
Just checking the status of the box.

Corrine,
Did you mail it yet? Also, please provide a delivery confirmation #.

Any 'sneak peeks' for Donna?

Deb


 o
RE: WANTED: African violet/leaf plantlet exchange... Box #1

yes, Deb..the box went flying out on Saturday morning,about 5 minutes before our post office closed, to Donna. Here is the delivery conf. number 0307 0020 0003 4317 6145. I will post the sneak peak tonight. Corinne

(I try not to take leafs everywhere I go its just reaaallly hard. I am trying to reform (leafaholic) hehehe ) Anyway I was hoping that you would be able to let me know when you would be starting this up again in hopes I could join. Please let me know.

Sorry for the delay in posting, I've had a lot going on, and have hardly been on the computer.
