I Need Your Help - Giveaways and Blog Candy?

Hi there, I’d like to get your opinion on what is proper etiquette for giveaways and blog candy.  I really need to destash my craft room because I have far too much and it’s cluttering my mind.  Some things are new but some are gently used.   Would posting my stash from time time be of any interest to any of you for future giveaways or blog candy offers or is it not proper to offer gently used items?  Just something I’m mulling over in my head .. haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet but I’m interested in hearing your responses.

If you haven’t visited my January Technique Blog Hop yet, please go take a look now.  It’s not a huge one .. only 8 participants so it won’t take long to hop through.  You can find it HERE

Thanks for stopping by.

I sometimes sell stash on my blog and also give it away as blog candy everyone knows we gather to much I just let them know it's a destash I've seen giveaways that where just scraps of paper all odd sizes but useable it's what ever works best for you :)

Sure, go for it! I think as long as you let people know then it's not an issue. Besides, what you may not have used maybe ideal for someone else ;)
Hope everyone is doing okay :)

I think that is fine, as long as you are honest about the condition of the items. one crafter's trash is another's treasure...it might be something you have no use for and another crafter has been searching every where for! you never know!

I love candy of any sort and I don't mind if it's used. I am no longer able to work so my craft budget is limited - I would love to win your candy! I will watch for it!

In the past, I have purchased used items from people who just want to get rid of some of their stuff. Maybe you could do that...........they listed the items on their blog or on Ebay. Used things, in good condition and a good price are great to me, since I, too am on a limited budget. Then, you could take the money and go out and buy some new stuff that you may want!! LOL

I think it is perfectly fine to offer used items. I have given away used items on my blog and love to win them too! LOL It's fun to see what you can do with someone else's stuff too. And, they don't end up in the trash or a box unloved.

I also think offering used items as blog candy is appropriate. Like others have said just let folks know up front. When your craft budget is limited, used items can be a great blessing. Sometimes, things are still in great condition but not your style anymore or it's a paper stack that you are just tired of using. Someone else may LOVE to give them a home and get lots of use out of them.
