Salisburys LETSystem was started in 1993. We trade using
a local currency called the Ebble. Traders negotiate a price to
suit themselves. Salisbury LETS members offer each other a wide
range of skills and services from babysitting, cookery and curtain
making to photography and proof reading.
Services, skills and goods are advertised in the LETS Directory
(Offers & Wants). Some are traded purely for ebbles, with
the going rate being about 10 ebbles for an hours work.
Other deals involve part payment in pounds, where materials or
parts are needed. Ebbles cannot be converted into pounds
it is a wholly different system.
When you join Salisbury LETS you will be sent full details of
how to trade, along with the Directory and other information.
A small sterling charge is made to cover the material costs of
administering the system. Admin work is paid for by an annual
ebble subscription levied on members.
