Trade #1 - Vintage Monopoly Car for Psychology Textbook w/Workbook

It is official!  After 13 month, I have made my first trade.  Over the last year and a month, I had 3 offers for trades, but they always fell through.

Item #1 - The Vintage Monopoly Car - Est. Value $.50
The wait was long, but hopefully, the first trade's completion will spark interest in my project, and will lead to more and more interesting trades.

As readers of this blog will know, I started with a vintage monopoly that was in a drawer at my late grandmother's house. You can read all of the back-story at my inaugural Vintage Monopoly Post.

I was offered the trade of my Vintage Monopoly Car for the Psychology For Life Today textbook and workbook set.  I made the trade with Travis Barrett, a local businessman, and when I say local I mean it, as you can see in the video below, I walked to this location to make the trade.

Mr. Barrett plans to put the Vintage Monopoly car in his desk at his car lot.


Mr. Barrett came across these books while searching a junkyard for car parts.  The books were rescued from an old jalopy.  Who knew they were destined to become part of my story?
Item #2 - Psychology For Life Today w/Workbook - Est. Value $2.00
This copy of Psychology For Life Today was printed in 2004, and is copyright 2002 from The American School®.  The workbook is in excellent/unused condition.  The book is Accredited by North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council.

If you are interested in making a trade for this book set, please contact me via email @ curtissmeltzer@gmail.com.

Like I've mentioned previously, I am looking to trade for something bigger or better than my current item.  Your trade doesn't necessarily need to be more valuable than the current item (but that's fine).  The stipulation of the trade is that you let me document it here on my blog.  I am willing to travel to your location to make the trade, provided that the trade is bigger and better, and you're prepared to tell me a bit about how you came across the items, take your picture and/or video and what you plan to do with my item once we trade.

You can find this available at craigslist in the Fort Wayne barter category.

UPDATE:

See where the Psychology Books went.
