Clothing Give Away... Question?

So I saw on another blog a few months ago, someone posting clothing that didn't fit and then sending it off to those (on her blog) that wanted them... just wondering how that works?

I have some clothing, vitamins (that are to big for me to swallow without problems)... that I would love to donate to another Bandster.

How does shipping work, who pays for it? Once the item is posted, do I take everyone who is interested and pull a name from the comment of those interested? or does it got to 1st one who comments? Ah, that's it I guess...

Have you done it before? Is it a pain in the butt? Should I just donate to my local donation center? Just wondering???

Generally we list or post pictures of items we have and people claim them by leaving a comment - then you can contact them directly for shipping.
When I give away clothes I pay for shipping and when I've gotten clothes the giver has paid, so generally that's the way it's done. Kind of a pass on the kindness thing. I'm sure people would be willing to kick in for shipping if you wanted them too.

Yep I paid for shipping for the clothes I gave away. And it was first in best dressed! The ladies who put dibs on my clothes did offer to pay postage. I agreed to put up the first $10 towards it and if it was anymore than that they'd kick in the rest. However I ended up just paying myself as I didn't have to send out too many lots anyway.

Carmen sent me some beautiful clothes and insisted on paying for the shipping... something about paying it forward.... Maybe, someday, I'll have clothes small enough to fix one of you wonderful bloggers...LOL. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at BAND Camp..." Check out my blog at mybigfatbandgeeklife.blogspot.com
