  1. Welcome to this years Secret Santa gift exchange 2019. FESTIVAL OF FOSSILS The Secret Santa exchange is when you enter your name into a pool and get matched with another player to exchange gifts. We try to keep gifts to around the maximum $30. range so no one is sending an overly extravagant gift or too menial a gift. When making your selection on what to send, ask yourself "would I be happy receiving this?" All are welcome to play so long as you adhere to the rules. This is a Secret Santa exchange. The catch is that your partner will not know who is sending the gift or what it will be until it is received. Your name will in turn be chosen for a different "Santa" to send a gift to you. It is crucial that the identity of who it is coming from to be kept totally unknown, so no hints or contacting who you are sending to! Sign up for entering this fun event will start today October 13 and will be open until the cut off for entry on Sunday October 27th Midnight Pacific Time. You will then be matched with your exchange partner and the names and addresses will be sent out by Midnight October 30th. Please PM me ( caldigger ) with your full name and mailing address. There are three choices you can make for your exchange partner. Do you want to send Domestic ( US only ), Overseas/ International ( could be anywhere outside the US ), or the greater European realm ( for those in Europe and close surrounding countries who don't want to ship overseas ). Send off deadline for International (overseas ) packages will be on November 12th due to the holiday shipping lag times ( busy postal departments and customs delays ) that occur at this time of year. Domestic send off deadline is December 4th. * It is important to get the gifts sent off by the deadline! Delays can and will happen, so please do yourself and your partner the curtesy and send on or before the deadline! It has been requested by many members that since this is a Secret Santa exchange, that everybody either hold off on opening their received packages or at least take pictures of what you received and not post the photos until Christmas ( December 25th ). *** A few handy tips we have learned from past exchanges that may help the shipping transactions run more smoothly and help avoid unnecessary holdups. *- Make sure your items are cleaned of dirt and dust the best you can. Most customs departments frown upon having foreign dirt coming into the receiving country. *- Check the box on your customs form as "Gift". This portrays a better indication the contents are not being brought in for commercial resale. *- In the past, when writing the description of the contents on the customs form it is found best to write something very simple such as "Geological specimens for educational studies" or "Study grade fossils for educational purposes- No commercial value". You don't want your gift to incure taxes because the customs office thinks they are going to be sold. *- For the contents value box on the form make sure you give it a low valuation ( I personally write $10. No matter how much higher the contents value may be ). Many customs departments will charge the receiver an additional charge based on the declared value on the form when entering the country. It is a gift, we don't want the receiver to have to pay to get it released from customs! Also do not put "0" value on the form either. That automatically raises a red flag to customs. Nobody is going to spend money shipping a package that is worth nothing! *** Please, please, please package your items very well with lots of packing material. The parcel may seem well packaged when sitting upright on your table, but they get tossed around, jumbled, have heavier boxes stacked on top, placed upside down, etc, etc. You almost can never have too much padding, especially when traveling half way across the world. There is nothing sadder and more frustrating to anxiously await a package to find the sender did not take the time to assure all was properly padded tight. If you can feel the slightest movement in the box, it will likely break. Pad every item and all spaces around them. OK, it must be said. This exchange is based and built on trust. All participants are putting their items they have either found or purchased on the line in hopes the other player has done the same. I can not control what members do, so please play fair. Do not sent a box of trash rocks. We all want items that we would be glad to have in our collections and your gift should reflect that. ~Remember this exchange is for the December 25th holiday!!! ~ A major part of this exchange is to post pictures in this thread of the goodies that your Santa sent you. Please take pictures and post them for all the other Forum members to see. That's half the fun!!! ~If you don't feel the rules and deadlines are going to work for you, please refrain from signing on to this event. ~ We have had great fun with these exchanges in the past and hope to keep it that way. LET THE FOLLIES BEGIN!!!!
  2. Welcome to the sign up portion of this year's Secret Santa Gift Exchange 2018! Each year this event gets bigger and better with more players. OK, let's get down to it. The Secret Santa is a gift exchange in which you enter your name into a pool and get matched with another player to exchange gifts. We try to keep the gifts to around the $30 range so no one is sending an overly extravagant gift like a complete Sabortooth skull or too skimpy of a gift like a single broken clam shell. When making your selection for what to send, ask yourself " Would I want to receive this?" It is a Secret gift exchange. The catch of this gift exchange is you won't know who that person sending you the gift will be until you receive your package. Your name will in turn be picked for someone else to receive a package from you. No two players will be matched the same. It is crucial that the identity of who it is coming from be kept totally unknown. Sign up for entering this fun event will start today October 8th and run until the cut off for entry on Sunday, November 4th. Midnight Pacific Time. You will then be matched with your exchange partner and the names and addresses will be sent out November 6th. Please PM me with your full name and mailing address and whether you would like to trade with an international destination or keep it within the U.S. only. European players can indicate if they want to stay within the European region as well. *For packages going to an international destination, please send off your package within the week following your receiving the name and address information. We have found some packages take many weeks to arrive during this busy time of year, especially where customs offices are coming into play. It has been requested by many members that since this is a Secret Santa exchange, that everybody hold off on opening your packages and posting the contents on the Forum until Christmas to keep with the seasonal spirit of the event. A few handy tips learned from past exchanges that may help the shipping transaction run more smoothly and avoid unnecessary holdup. * -Make sure your items are cleaned of dirt and dust the best you can. Most customs officials frown upon letting foreign dirt come into the receiving country. * - Check the box on your customs form with "Gift". This portrays a better indication to the customs officials that the contents are not going to be for commercial resale. * - In the past when writing your contents description in customs forms it has been found to write something that is very simple is best. Such as: "Geological specimens for educational studies" or " Study grade fossils for educational purposes- No commercial value" *- For the contents value on the forms make sure you write a low price value ( I personally put $10). Many customs departments will charge the reciever an additional charge based on the declared value on the form when entering that country. It is a gift, we don't want the reciever to have to pay to get it released from customs. Please don't write a value of zero (0) on the form either. That automatically raises a red flag to customs. Nobody is going to spend money sending a package that is worth nothing! *- Please, please, please, package your items well with lots of packing material. The package may seem well packed on your dining room table, but they get bounced around, buried under other heavy packages, etc. when moving through different postal systems. Nobody likes being exited to open a package only to find everything broken from lack of padding. Just please pack them well. I think that should about do it. Remember to PM me your name and address information and whether you want international, domestic, or either one. For those international packages, kindly get them sent out within the next week of getting the shipping information for your exchange partner. Some of those destinations take a long time to arrive, so the sooner the better! Please refrain from opening your gifts until Christmas to keep it in the holiday spirit. Kindly post pictures of your recieved goodies when you do, others love to share in your joy. One last thing. This exchange is supposed to be secret so let's keep it that way. You might know who sent you the items when you get them, but don't "spill the beans" for the rest of us. Thank you for your cooperation. Now let's have some fun!
  3. Dear Forum Members, I will gladly exchange Solnhofen fossils (there are several floating crinoids plates of different sizes, coprolites, aptychi of ammonites) and Polish Oxfordian ammonites (from Ogrodzieniec quarry) for Ordovician cystoids or Jurassic crinoids. If you need more detailed pictures, please send me a private message Regards, Kasia
  4. Hey guys, I've been reading the past Secret Santa gift exchanges. I think it's quite interesting as you really don't know what you get. I was wondering if I or other forumers can have the blessings of Moderators and members to organize another random trading event for TFF! Thanks, please comment down below what you think.
  5. Greetings, after collecting and buying fossils for a few years and getting out of space at my home for all of them I have realized that it could be a good idea to exchange them for other fossils (I have dozens of ammonites for all around the world, brachiopods and micraster and pecten from spain) so my question is, do you know somewehere on internet to exchange fossils? Is it possible to exchange them here? Thank you very much.
  6. Hi brachiopod lovers I wonder, is someone in this forum interested in exchanging fossils? Maybe this is an interesting proposal for you: I have devonian brachiopods from France, Belgium and Germany and some nice ones from the jurassic of Spain to offer. There are a few miscellaneous fossils too, for example neogene and devonian gastropods, shark teeth from Germany and cretaceous echinoids from Spain. I´m looking for devonian brachiopods, without any preferences. (But any other devonian fossils are welcome too). If you´re interested, just send me a PM. The attached pictures show only some examples, there are 56 pictures with 43 different brachiopod-taxa. I prepared a small google-album and i will give you the link ;-) Cheers, Nils
  7. The Singapore Fossil Collector's Group just had our quarterly meetup. Eight of us gathered in one collector's house for a very eventful afternoon where we discussed about the on-goings of the fossil world, had a great show-and-tell session of our own beloved fossils, and of course fossil exchange and trade! Among the fossils being showcased and traded were Several quality meg teeth A full set of Cretaceous marine predator teeth Dinosaur teeth and claw Various shark and croc teeth LOTS and LOTS of amber Several fish Miocene plant slab Many spiny and high-quality trilobites Many ammonites Gastropods and other marine invertebrates Washington crabs Here are the pics of that incredible event.
