that was started based on a request here 14-15 months ago (and that grew to a huge number!) is moving a new platform tomorrow night at 7pm PST. It's called VarageSale. If you're a member of the FB group, please visit the wall to read the pinned post for more information. It's a fabulous new option that's very, very user-friendly, but you do have to switch over and you do need to save your photos from the group to re-upload.

I think I saw it come through this morning, Melissa. Let me know if you're not "pending" in VarageSale and I can check into it.

Does one need to join the FB group to get invited to the other group?

One needs to be a part of FB to join VarageSale, but not necessarily the actual homeschool swap group linked above. Instructions for joining VS are below. That said, if we can keep our numbers growing in the FB group (we're the largest such group there), it will serve to keep drawing more and more interested people in. So feel free to join for that purpose alone if you might. You can turn off all notifications.

----
Here's the step by step version for joining VarageSale:
If you're on a computer, search for VarageSale in the FB search window way up at the top. Then choose the red VS box that pops up. Install that to your FB account by following the prompts on the screen. It will open to the VS dashboard. Scroll down to find the one named {BEST} Homeschool Swap-USA and request to join that one. That's it!

If you're on an Apple mobile device, search for the VarageSale app. in the store. Then search for {BEST} Homeschool Swap-USA and join.

If you're on an Android device, go directly to www.varagesale.com and log in (it uses your FB log in). Then search for {BEST} Homeschool Swap-USA and join.

Less than an hour -- have you saved your pictures? The new platform is so awesome. Categories from a pulldown menu, your own storefront where you can manage all your items, super duper search engine, see everything one seller has for sale, "watch" favorite sellers, internal messaging system, mobile-device friendly etc.

I love telling others there about Well Trained Mind. We don't allow discussion on the feed, just buying/selling, so when something is asked, I direct them here to ask questions.
