Michael Frank from The Museum of Bad Art Trades me Space Aliens in Crayon for Old Man Murder

Michael Frank, MOBA Curator, and Rosalie doin' a bARTer Sauce trade

I hope Sean doesn't get mad at me for trading his painting to The Museum of Bad Art.

I'm assuming he won't since he wrote about how much he hates that painting. Plus, now he can say that his work is in a real museum.

You can read all about the MOBA visit on my blog.

Sean trades me "Old Man Murder" for "Fangy Tomato and Friend"

Old Man Murder

Sean lives far away, so we do all of our trades through the mail.

Now, it's really exciting for me to get a package in the mail, examine it momentarily then, rip it open in a rush to find the great art inside. And, as exciting as that is, that description probably won't remain exciting through the history of all Sean's trades. He's made a few:

Sean Trades Me Three Things For Three Other Things

This trade, like many others recently, happened through the mail.

And while I love expanding bARTer Sauce to new areas of the globe, I do kind of miss the trading in person part of it. Now, in order to spice this up a little bit, I've decided that I'll ask anyone who trades with me through the mail to tell me an extra, bonus, double-good story. Along those lines, I asked Sean to tell me about when he first learned that there was no Santa Claus.

Sean, on Santa (not in a weird way):

Blue Clown Face Painting for Kitty Cat Painting

This Package Contains Wicked Good Aht

I got a painting of a kitty cat from MOBA (Museum of Bad Art) this week.

I mailed them the blue faced, clown thing when I finally worked up the energy to walk all the way to the post office.

It's difficult to take pictures documenting my trades with MOBA because they're located near Boston and I am definitely not located near Boston. So I just took a picture of their packing job. It says: This package contains Wicked Good Aht!

Mike traded me a Holiday Moose Decoration (that I later decapitated) in exchange for the Frog Riding a Turtle statue

Statue of a frog riding a turtle

Mike's offer was for the Frog Riding a Turtle statue.

I immediately accepted Mike's offer because someone who shall remain nameless has been hassling me to get her a Moosehead. Often she will just send me emails with the following text:

"Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead! Moosehead!"

Mike gives me the monkey shelf in exchange for a naval officer hats

Here's Mike and I trading a naval issue hat for a horrible shelf like thing that is being held up by a monkey.

Mike said he traded it to me for the hat because his wife won't let him hang it up in the house. Can you imagine not wanting this in your house???
