Hi, and welcome to the forum.  You were asking about exchanges, I just got an email for swapnights.com.   I am not sure what this site actually does but it may give you a start.

Very interesting!

Alas, I only speak English so applaud anyone who can speak another language as well as their own!

a.s.o. appears to mean "and so on..."

Interesting! So guests who really like a particular piece of furniture (or bedspread, or what-have-you) could buy it on the spot and take it with them? Do you have a stockpile of spares available to re-furnish a room before the next guests arrive?

okay

I was looking at your website and I think you need a little help with English and what you are trying to say. Maybe you are redecorating? Innkeepers on this site might be able to help.

Dear Seashanty,

 

Thanks a lot for your comment and yes you are correct that our English is of course not perfect.

We are not redecorating - our B&B is a Boutique B&B which means you are able to buy every bed, table a.s.o. if you like it. The furniture is all antique. This is the idea behind it. I don`t know where you are situated, but this might not be common in your country, or ?

Have a nice evening.

Best wishes

The only B & Bs in the States that I have ever seen this were also antique shops - EVERYTHING except the innkeepers and the dogs were for sale (and it would take much of an offer for THIS innkeeper to send Pudding Man to a new home! - don't worry, an inside joke with the regulars here).

In the UK it is very unusual for things to be for sale within the B&B - maybe a few pictures by local artists but not the furniture. Boutique simply means small but perfect
