trade ordhids/seeds/starters for a curved blade french lame, a brotform banneton, and a silpat baking mat

Looking to trade for a really nice curved lame (already have a straight one) a nice wood long/oblong brotform banneton (I already have two round brotform bowls) and a 'silpat' baking mat. Anyone have extras they are willing to trade for something? I have orchids (species and hybrids), heirloom tomato seeds & 10 different sourdough starters to trade! Tell me what you want and we'll go from there! Thanks

If you're located in the US, check to see if there is an Aldi's market near you. The flyer I got in the Sunday KC Star showed two silicon mats, a small and a large, for about $6 and $10 respectively. I can't vouch for their quality but at those prices, you ought to take a look.


Maybe Bed, Bath, and Beyond is closer to you. They have a 20% off coupon available over the internet. BB&B carries SilPat and a knock off brand. I have no association with BB&B other than my money is often spent there.
