Swapdom is another new swapping website. I heard about this site via a blog post by Kellie. You can list items, search for items you want, offer your stuff in exchange. Swapdom helps to arrange the swap.

The premise of the so-called “recommerce” outlet is fairly simple: Users turn in their gently worn (perhaps even designer) duds for virtual currency, which then can be spent on anything in the store. If a coveted piece is just out of reach, the store also allows users to buy those in-store “bucks” to close the gap and make the purchase. The company relies heavily on the participation of those with high-end closets to maintain a steady flow of barter-worthy items, but it’s not the first to make a go of the strategy (and turn a profit).
