I was going thru some draws and came up with a few items that I am willing to Giveaway.
The items are a mix of SAKs, tools, knives, flashlights and other small edc items.

Rather than a straight GAW, I thought I’d see if there was some interest in having a Surprise Box style giveaway.

I am going to pack as much as I can in a small flat rate shipping box, then send it to the first person chosen randomly.  That person then gets to chose 1-3 items from the box, before sending it off to the next person who gets to do the same thing and down the list until we run out of items or people.

A couple of guidelines to better understand how it will work and agreement that you are making by signing up:
1.  Due to shipping costs and not knowing if VAT and taxes would make worthwhile, only US shipping addresses.  If there is enough interest from European members, I would be willing to send some items to start a European box.

2.  Total number of participants is currently limited to 20 to ensure sufficient items.  If I locate more items, I may increase.  If so I will announce.

3.  Depending on number of items that fit in box and people who sign up, there may be more than one surprise box and list.  If so, the people assigned each box and order will be created randomly.

4. The box recipient can select 1-3 items to keep.  If more than 1 item is selected then, recipient must add at least one item to the box for each additional item selected before shipping,

5.  Anyone who signs up agrees to ship the items to the next person in a timely manner. This means willing to pay for shipping (small flat rate box currently priced at $8.45)

6.  If you feel that you get a good deal from what you get from the box, please make a donation to the forum to help support this wonderful place.

If it was clear, it wouldn’t be a surprise.

I must have one of those curvy things  :gimme:

This is an interesting idea. I have some items that are not smurf that I would be willing to put in the box in exchange for anything I take out.

I wonder how many will look at the picture and try to figure out what the curvy things are.


Great to have you.  I think we all have things we’d be willing to exchange.  Hopefully it gets interest and goes smooth, then maybe  it could happen again.

I think it's an excellent idea. I don't want to put my name on the list but I would like to wish luck to those who enter.  I did just get the 2021 Pay it Forward package which seems to be the same concept, and still have to send that on. :cheers:

A bump to see if more interest.

If not, i’ll still send out a box to those interested.

I think this is great idea, just worried about how we keep the chain going.

I know some have a long chain because it is one big box.  Because I’m doing a small flat rate box, it would only be about 5+/- per box and each person would be responsible to mail to next.  The small flat rate will make it easier to mail, because even if box is damaged and can’t be reused, they are usually available at the post office.  You can even print off postage at home without a scale and just put in mailbox or give to mailman.

Wow.  I thought this might get a little more interest, but oh well.

Seeing that it has been a week a only a small interest, I will tailor the initial plan a little.  For those who have already expressed interest ( includes pa_strunk if want), if you message me your address, I’ll send you each a surprise box with a few items for you.

If more people show interest I will still have enough to do as originally planned.

I really like the idea of a box of goodies that is sent around so that each recipient can take a few items but also gives a few items of comparable value.

I received a package from Sos today, and it was quite generous. I can't post a picture of the contents at the moment, but I will tomorrow morning.

I just realized that I forgot to do something in my PM to Sos. So I will do it now:

Thank you very much !
