What are they?
Small mementos or crafts that Girl Guides and Girl Scouts will trade with each other.
I attended GM2010 (Guiding Mosaic 2010) the international camp hosted by Girl Guides of Canada where 9 countries were represented by wonderful girls (young women actually!) and women.
I love to give away the swaps I made - I had the Girl Guide stamp issued by Canada Post in 1960 and laminated it along with the camp logo.
And often I would be offered something in return.
These are the swaps that girls and women worked so hard to make prior to camp - in some cases, they made hundreds of them!
There is so much thought and hard work that goes into each one.
Thank you everyone!
