Directory Listing(s)

There are no limits to what can be traded through the LETS Exchange. Professional services such as accounting or chiropractic, hobbies such as bike repair, piano lessons, or baking, second hand goods, favours or errands for a friend - all these things can earn you Green Dollars when traded through the LETS Exchange.

Use the following space to list the Goods or Services that you will offer in the Directory. Your entries will also appear in the next newsletter. This listing(s) can be changed at anytime. It might help to look at some existing listings to get an idea of what to put in your own listing(s).



The Newsletter:

Each account holder contributes one Green Dollar for the production of The Peterborough LETS Exchanger. You have the option of either having your Exchanger delivered with your monthly account statement to you for a small fee in Green Dollars or E-mailed. The Exchanger contains New Members' listings, temporary goods and services offered or wanted, member profiles, and news about the LETS system including upcoming Markets and other important information.

( ) I would like to have The Exchanger delivered at a cost of one Green Dollar per issue.
