    Here is an example. They come in all sorts and types, from plain to very decorative.

    Quite common here. They are used for advertising, little party favors, small gifts, giveaways, that sort of thing. You said summer, so I thought fan. :D

    As I said, it was mostly meant as a joke.

    I guess you would need them more there!

    Lapel badges sound good Sam, or what about charity badges/wrist bands? That would be giving something back too

    Originally, when we started exchanges the purpose of the exchange was to trade a local "item" for a local "item."

    I believe it started with calendars. A person in the US would trade a local calendar with someone in the UK or other country for one of their local calendars.

    Exchanges can be whatever the members would like, but the concept of exchanging "local" is what I believe, made the exchanges interesting.

    Christmas decorations are another sort of exchange. They are not as subject to the "local" type of context, but it is still nice to trade a decoration that comes from a local area as much as possible.

    I remember exchanging tshirts, but can't honestly say that I recall it being here. I just remember with whom I exchanged one.

    I recall an early discussion back in 2008 about starting up exchanges here, but that discussion was in reference to calendars and Christmas cards.

    At any rate, exchanges can be quite fun, especially when the item to be exchanged is selected by the members. My fondness for local items is just that, my personal preference. I don't expect it to be shared by everyone.

    What about 'international' exchange? We buy something which can be only brought in our homeland?

    Daniel now wears the tshirt I got Johnie, I like the idea of local things too Tink, it celebrates the fact that we're from different countries. Jeff that's what we tend to do..buy a magnet for example that has your local area on it or similar

    I do like the international theme. I always like getting something local :-) I can't say that I'm really sure what exactly would be only available here to send.
