#Bartering is gaining an increased popularity in this economy. Many people are getting things done by #trading with those that can provide the service. I personally would like to find someone who would trade my# painting service for a quality #guitar, preferably an #electrified #acoustic. It would be a luxury for me. However, if the work I trade is work I might not have gotten, it is actually extra money I’m buying the guitar with. The recipient of my services trades an asset they can live without (at a better exchange than hocking it or selling it on Craig’s list) and they get my service that might not have been in their budget.
