First:  Remember: this is the place to wish.  We all have wishes.  If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant,   just ignore.  Please be kind.  Don't make someone feel badlyNone of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this is Not a Christmas shopping list.  It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family.

Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use.  Obviously,  we all like certain things like  credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOTfor that kind of thing.   This is for  things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc).  **   Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread).  There may be other places for that.  If someone sends you a book, please receive it and thank the member sending it.

Please limit your list to about 10 items (Remember,  you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you.  There is a separate thank you thread so we can  keep this one clean and easy to read.   It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :)  It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread.

It's always good to check the RAOK thread before you post your wishes -someone may already have what you are looking for. (For those of you looking for them, coupons are offered on the RAOK  on a regular basis.)   There is now a separate coupon thread within the RAOK forum, if you wish to trade there.

If you post wishes, try to grant at least one wish yourself, so this place is not considered a "gimme" group,  where people post but don't send out.  PBS members can become good friends, don't abuse, please!  **NOTE:  Cathy W. (Firefly) collects cancelled postage stamps for charity.**

If you see a wish you are able to grant, just PM the poster and ask for their name and address - that's it, simple and easy and a lot of fun!

Hi all, back wishing again for:

      Sheep! I collect any and all for my inside flock. Also note cards, stickers, whatever that pertains to sheep.

       Saint Bernards - anything

       Stationery - I write to people all over the world and would love to use up your unwanted writing paper

       Bath salts, bubblebath, soap, bath powder - love it all - keep me in mind of you get some for Christmas that you don't want!

      Still looking for a music stand, table model or floor

Please remember, stationery, bath stuff and the music stand can be heavy to mail. Think about that before you do it.  Flat rate boxes or envelopes can be a money saver if you have heavy things.  This is supposed to be fun , let's not go overboard on the postage. I apprecaite your thoughtfulness, but hate that some of you have spent so much mailing me things!!


Thanks, Pat

  Here's another wish for this holiday season - put your expired coupons to good use!

These members collect expired coupons  to send to military bases.   Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please.  Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can.  Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them.   This is a great help to our military families.

Kimberly M. (nescioquis)


Lisa D. (tommygirl)
Thanks to Kim and Lisa for their efforts.  If anyone else is doing this, please PM and we will add you to the list.

In reading all the forums, I have seen people discuss the bookmates/openpage covers.  I would love a tradesize since I have been accumulating a lot of tradesize since joining pbs.  I know it's a longshot, but you never know.

If anyone makes cloth bookcovers, I would love a betty boop, comedy and tragedy  (masks) or celestial tradesize.   (or solid color- not green, yellow or orange please)

comedy/tragedy stickers

betty boop stickers

pepsi coupons

tropicana o j coupons

Copying from November:

I would love anything craft related, especially for a toddler.  My DD is almost 2 and LOVES coloring books, any kinds of crayons, play-doh, stickers, anything like that.  So if you have old supplies you're thinking of trashing, we'll take it!  

She also loves playing with purses, so if you have any dress-up purses lying around, I'd be happy to take them off your hands!

Thanks so much!

I also like tea swapping. So if you got some tea, I got some for you. (I like Black flavored, but I'm up to other tea too)
