    I am building my own jewelry design business and as a form of advertisement I thought I would leave some of the items I make in the caches, now I want more cool stuff to trade! My husband and I only like looking for geo’s that might have swag in them.

    Hi Lorne. Found your swag out at the Frank track. Thought I discovered a treasure map at first. Walked back to the car immediately to obtain my specs. Can’t see s$#@ with out them. Was pleasantly surprised to find a geomagnetic. Thank you. Left my name and date. Will keep my eyes peeled for more.I walk all over the place, preferably quiter areas. I have a small horse for a dog, scares folks because of his size. Really just a big goof, black lab x newfie.

    Thanks again. Love it!

      Thanks so much for your post. I’m so glad you like my geomagnet. I try to leave something handcrafted in most caches I find so I expect you’ll find more of my stuff.

      I enjoy quiet walks in forest settings for me and my dog too. And the Halton Tracts really fit the bill.

    Lone R,
    I found a red Key ID Ring at Giant Fairy Tale … I will put it on my keys to remember I can stop anywhere to enjoy my surroundings and experience a good cache or two. I also have not heard of geoswag, but now that I have I will come up with my own to spread the love.

    • *R* says:

      Fantastic. I’m happy to hear that you’re going to use the keyring on a key. And that you may be creating your own swag. I hope to find it some day.

    The best homemade geoswag I’ve found to date is TheBarnSwallows’ “muggle rock and tag” kit, complete with story. Made me chuckle and very memorable! I’ve loved the homemade bracelets and other bits I’ve found, although I have mostly continued to move those along. My faves that you have collected are the wooden nickel and those homemade dragonfly magnets; anything unique.

    Hi, because of the facebook entry on geoswags, I tried to find more information about them. In Belgium, I have not seen one yet in a geocache, only travel bugs and geocoins. But your site really inspired me. I’ ll try to find the proper craft for me, and distribute some here. Maybe we could start geoswag outhere as well πŸ˜‹

    • Lone R says:

      Interesting. I don’t do facebook but googled it and found the Utah group. Nice manufactured coins. I’m thrilled to hear that my handcrafted geoswag blog has inspired you. If you ever set up your own geoswag blog, let me know.

  6. Cejlpfamily says:

    Thanks for some great ideas. We are putting together our second hide and want it to be special.

  7. I love leaving friendship bracelets and rexlace key chains with caches I find πŸ™‚

  8. Love the items you have here. I’ve found a few cool things as well and love the hand made stuff. I tend to leave Friendship bracelets and laced key chains as swag. I’ve also done cute “shooting stars” with fun foam and glitter.

    I’ve seen a ton of your swag out and about, but I finally decided to grab a card with just the quote from Pippi Longstocking. I love the quote! Thanks for making all this amazing swag.

  10. Rob and Diane says:

    We found one of your magnets with the picture of the hikers and the comment “Bring a GPS…it’s awkward when you have to eat your buddies.” We have a tee shirt with the exact same picture and comment so of course we had to take your swag!

  11. Carol says:

    Found your purple key ring. My first geoswag. New to geocaching so your geoswag and this webpage made me aware of what some of the items might be inside the caches. I’ll definately be taking a much closer look at the items inside the cache from now on. Thanks for the enlightenment. Cheers

    Found one of your key id rings. Our families first geoswag. Thank you.

  14. Horsegirl104 says:

    I found a second geoswag. Also the same thing I found before just a different color. It’s a Key ID Ring.

  15. Casandra says:

    I have found the geoswag in the Drumbo Boneyard series. Our family found the key ID ring, for your car keys. Thank-you it was an awesome find.

  16. DrStrange01 says:

      You’re very welcome. I’m glad to read that my signature items and blog are inspirational. Looking forward to seeing what people come up with.

    Lone R,
    I found a glass marble magnet on April 22nd/2011 in the Bone-Yard Series: Trillium Trail (GC29BDD). What a wonderfully cool idea! We loved it – thanks.

    • Lone R says:

      Thanks for logging your find here, rattlerant @ ben10. I’m so glad you like the glass marble magnet. I’ve gotten some really nice feedback about those so I intend to keep on making them. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the swag — a key identification ring (maybe I won’t have to fumble with my house keys anymore to locate the door key).

    I love the idea of making swag. It takes geocaching to a whole new level.

    Thanks!

    Jen

    • Lone R says:

      Thanks so much for leaving your message Jen. I’m glad you might find some use for the key i.d. ring. And I’m happy to hear that you like the idea of making swag. I hope you make some of your own. I would love to find more personal hand-crafted swag. πŸ™‚
