Back to bartering

It's good to share. A new website now provides free access to a "swap shop". Initially set up as a small initiative working with local authorities and communities, SwapXchange enables users to offer unwanted items. Electrical goods, books, clothing and furniture are among those offered so far. Sometimes people swap skills rather than objects. Welcome back, bartering - it's much more fun than ordinary shopping.
