Xerta or Cherta they are one and the same place, however this service is not limited to the friendly village along the canal and the River Ebro, it is open to Spain. After all we have Fedex, Correos (buyer collects or pay postage.)
This is an open group set up on our best e-friend and confidante a.k.a. Facebook. Here is another innovative lady in southern Catalonia, moving and shaking, inspiring us all to post our items for exchanging.
In the festive spirit, there is more – it is free of charge and with Maggie’s blessing, in serving the community.
What you have to exchange need not be mega big or exceptional, but it may be just what someone else is looking for. The old adage of bartering and swapping prevails.
“Fair enough,” I hear you say, “but what if I have what they need, yet do not want the exchange they are offering?”
“It is very easy and straight-forward. Talk to them. Persuade, debate, exchange, recycle, haggle, swap, sell or give freely.” After all, we are in the season of giving and goodwill.
There is another angle to this Fair Exchange Xerta group; you need something but they have nothing to exchange. Fair enough – put forward your request politely and be honest in what your budget limit is subject to your approval of goods.
Now this is a very interesting angle; you wish to promote an event or have a business(one ‘man’ or corporate) and want to promote your products or services. This is a novel outlet to get your business out there in less than the 30 second elevator pitch. The charging is done on a sliding scale to suit the client – be it weekly, monthly, tri-monthly, or sixth-monthly, annually or a one off.
