Join us for the Second Annual Fall Scarf Exchange!

I'm not sure when my love affair with scarves began. If I had to guess I would say it was the year my Grandma gifted me a beautiful cashmere purple, pink and gray striped, fringed scarf for Christmas. It was love at first sight. And now here I am many years later with a pretty impressive collection, but when is a collection ever really complete? (Pretty sure I hear Ariel belting out, "But who cares? No big deal? I want mooooore!" Anyone else?!) So I am beyond excited to be able to host the Second Annual Fall Scarf Exchange with Courtney and Liz again! 


The premise of the scarf exchange is simple - you buy a scarf for someone and someone buys a scarf for you! And then in a couple weeks, you join us back here and share what you got! 

Here's how it works :

Step 1: If you're interested in participating in the exchange (which we hope you are!), please send Liz an email with subject line of "2016 Scarf Exchange". Comments below are always welcome but WILL NOT include you in the exchange. In your email, please include your name, your email, your blog URL (if you have one), your Instagram name (if you have one), and any other social media links that you'd like to share with your partner. Exchange is open to US residents only - so sorry! 

Sign ups will close on Saturday, October 1st at 11:59pm Pacific Time so please make sure you email Liz by then.

Step 2: Partner matches will be made on October 2nd and an email notifying you who your partner is will be sent that night or on October 3rd.

Step 3: Please make contact with your partner by Friday, October 7th. You guys can discuss things like what kind of scarves you typically like (infinity, regular, etc), any fabric preferences or allergies to fabrics, etc. You can even share a picture of some scarves you already own to give your partner an idea of what you typically like. I would also encourage you to check out your partner's social media channels and blog to get an idea of their style as well. You will exchange mailing addresses at this point.

Step 4: If you haven't received any contact from your partner by Saturday, October 8th, please email Liz at chasinmasonblog@gmail.com and she will try to contact your partner or match you up with someone else.

Step 5: Mail your packages by Monday, October 17th. That gives you a little over a week or so to go shopping and get the package in the mail.

Step 6: Come back and link up your blog post with us on Thursday, November 3rd showing us your goodies! No blog? No problem! Share your new scarf with us on social media with #FallScarfExchange16 
***Spoiler alert: This is also the day after my birthday so I'm totally stretching out the celebration ;)


A little bit of additional information :

  • Please plan to spend about $20-25 BEFORE shipping on the scarf for your partner.
  • As mentioned above, the exchange is open to US residents only.
  • You do not need to be a blogger to participate. You can get to know your partner through email and social media.
  • Please make sure that you can commit to all the dates and the cost before you sign up. You don't want to leave your partner cold and scarf-less this Fall and Winter!
  • And please let me, Courtney, or Liz know if you have any questions!
I'll leave you with this collage- picture proof of my scarf hoarding  collection ;)

  3. If I were to bring one more scarf into our home, James would likely lose his mind. My collection is quiet impressive.
