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 NOT for 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 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.)

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!

I always appreciate grocery coupons. 

In addition, DH will be redoing DS's room in a train theme later this month.  If anyone has train items (or knows of a good place to get them at a reasonable price), I would really appreciate them.  DS is interested in things that look like real trains.  He has outgrown Thomas.  He also loves Legos.

I am also interested in zebra toys, including zebra plush, for my younger DS.  This is his newest obsession (following monkeys).


Thanks so much for looking.

I wish for:

Yarn - lots of yarn.  I don't care what type, how little you have or how much you have.  I am knitting scarves and hats for charity.  My goal is to have knitted 25 (and hopefully more) by 12/31.  I am at #20 right now.  You can see my progress at my blog in my signature.  I take photos of each scarf.  10 have already been donated.


Teas and coffees and bath products are welcomed too.  Yarn is mostly needed though.


Thank you so much for reading!

I'm looking for Campbells Soup Labels - (cut out the barcode on the back) also on Swanson or Goldfish products.

I've been ordering playground balls for our school with the soup labels. Or if you have any balls you can deflate and send, that would be great. This is the first year the kids have had balls on the playground and they love them. But we only have about a dozen balls so far for about 750 kids. (If I get a minimum by December 31, Campbells will donate free points to us.)

I'm wishing for:

  • Coke codes
  • coupons for :  glucose meters (One Touch, Breeze 2, Contour, Freestyle, etc.)  - I purchase them using the coupons and donate them to our local health clinic.
  • Senseo or Folgers decaf coffee pods - none of my local stores carry the decaf pods
  • new items for our local homeless shelter - hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, pajamas, socks - so many families and it's hard to keep the shelves stocked

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

I only wish for childrens books for my son. I'm trying to read to him every night. He's into carebears and other cartoon characters. Loves animals, alphabets, numbers and typical 5 year old boy stuff.

1. Wishing for used/cancelled stamps. I wish to add to my meager collection. (Thanks for those who have contributed all ready.)
2. Pokemon cards in quality condition. I'm collecting these for my cousin's sweet boy so please no ratty tatty ones!
3. Coke Rewards. I'm addicted to Pogo. Enough said.
4. Keys. Got some keys laying around the house and you have no idea what they go to? I will totally and completely accept any wayward keys.
5. Plastic Canvas.  I make piggy banks from empty baby formula cans, but the price for sheets are outrageous here, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

As always, please and thank you very much.

Kind of an odd request here, but if anyone has any spare accessories for action figures, I'd appreciate them. (I'm thinking weapons, equipment, other belongings like that; you know, the little tiny plastic things that end up stuck in your vacuum cleaner. *g*) A friend has an action figure who's sort of a mascot, and I'd like to give her some bits of kit for him. :)

For myself, all I really want at the moment is to sell some of the jewelry, pet toys, or Christmas ornaments I offer on my website (see my profile for the link). Finances are tough right now, I've had no sales, and any little bit would help.
