Trades are typically small items made by you (or packets of goodies that you put together) that you bring and trade with others who have made things. They are not required, but are a fun way to share your art with others. Trading can take place anywhere and everywhere at the retreat...just ask if anyone is trading, and you are sure to get a response! For more info on the types of trades people do, please see the Files section of the yahoo group.
