Are you the Supreme Trading Champion?
|The challenge is simple. Trade up Basil Bear for an item worth more, and keep trading for a bigger and better item until the trading period ends. You then give us the item, we’ll auction it on eBay and the one that sells for the most money will be crowned Supreme Trading Champion. The bigger and better the items, the more money the charity will make.
The inspiration for this challenge comes from Kyle Macdonald, a Canadian blogger, who traded a single paper clip, for something better and fourteen swaps later he had secured a house.
