What our Members are saying:

We have been a member of Carolina Trade Exchange since 2010. This barter group is truly wonderful. The members trade fairly and treat barter transactions honestly. They are professional and function like a concierge to facilitate trade. I highly recommend Carolina Trade Exchange.
