    Unfortunately due to postage costs, we will have to limit this round to US participants only.
    Before you sign up, please make sure you are okay with the rules.

    1) Minimum of 100 posts to participate. If you are close to 100 and want to participate, please PM me, or check around the boards and see if you can contribute to any threads and increase your post count.

    2) Within the US, will be using large USPS flat rate boxes - this assures everyone pays the same price for shipping (approx. $17) regardless of weight; we can track the package; and the next person will receive it in 2-3 business days. Also, please post if you are willing to pay additional shipping to mail the box from US to Canada & vice versa, as we will need 1 person in each country to do so.

    3) Must be able to send delivery confirmation/tracking number to next participant; instructions on how to buy delivery confirmation and print labels from home are here: http://www.ehow.com/how_4927923_crea...ge-labels.html

    4) Must send off package no more than 1 week after receipt; PM the next person on your list for their address once you receive the box.

    5) Since this relies largely on the honor system, please try to contribute an equal amount (or more) items than what you take. (**exception is if the box is just too darn full to close - feel free to remove items in order to make room for your goodies!**)

    6) Items should be in new or good condition - something you wouldn't mind giving to a dear friend. This doesn't apply to vintage items, naturally! If cosmetic items are used, please sanitize them by wiping with alcohol. Makeup & hair brushes should be washed & clean.

    7) Please wrap up your items (especially liquids & nail polishes, tape pump sprayers closed, etc.) carefully so the next participant doesn't get a wet, sticky mess (or USPS pulls it; please don't send anything illegal: http://www.usps.com/aviationsecurity/).

    8) If for any reason you are on the list and can no longer participate, please let us know ASAP!

    9) You must be able to take pictures of what you've taken to post on the thread, or at least post a list of what you have taken out. This keeps excitement up for the ladies watching by keeping things transparent. No need to take pictures of what you are adding into the box - that way it keeps the rest of the box a surprise for the upcoming participants.

    10) *Any* beauty items are allowed. This includes nail & hair products, styling tools, body products, cosmetics, anything related to beauty. Since this is the Fedora Lounge, we will also include vintage items relating to beauty - magazines, packaging, wave clips, curlers, whatever!

  2. I am definitely in.

    Let me check my supplies, as I may have enough to be able to start the box. (We're moving and I'm trying to pare down, but I haven't gone through my beauty supplies yet.)

    I would like to participate this year. So if I understand this correctly, as the box comes around, we take something and put something else in? Are there any additional rules I need to know about?
  6. Yes, so if you have five items to put in, take out around 5.

    If you put in something like a used lipstick, I cut the used part off and wipe down with alcohol. (I did a few lipsticks a couple of years ago, i just cut them off and poured rubbing alcohol on the ends). You can put in products you've tried as long as you have "cleaned" them up.

    I think we said before you have to send it out within a week of receiving it.

    In the past, I've gotten lots of lovely things out of the box, stuff I never would have bought myself to try.

    What can we do to drum up a little more enthusiasm? I've always wanted to do one of these & can't wait to begin!
  12. Ohh... is this possibly still a go ? I've participated in 2 rounds of this in the past & would love to do it again !

  14. I dumped a lot of my stuff when I moved, but I am willing to separate with some of the stuff I moved with, if it's a go!

    Hello, Im still in. Was waiting for more ladies to join in. Slowly its coming around. Oh and if we do start sending out the box now we'll have to ship it before the end of May here in the mid-west that is when summer begans. And I would not want any of the products to end up melting or busting do to the heat.

    @St. Louis I agree, hopefully more ladies will join us so the beauty box has more items to choose from.

    I'd love to join you, but I'm not sure I have enough products to contribute.
