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 badly.  None 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!

I am wishing for baby food and some food coupons, my autistic son only eats these foods and it gets expensive.  Gerber puffs and yogurt melts, Yogurt burst cherrios, soy milk coupons, Pediasure coupons, annies organic bunny grahams, Nabisco teddy grahams and Ritz crackers.

Also a leapfrog leappad book and cartridge system if someone has one sitting around the house no longer being used. 

We are homeschoolers so any childrens books or pre-k / kindergarten curriculum that you don't want credits for I am interested. Dover books included. I don't mind if they are damaged, written in etc.

this may be a long shot but if anyone has some used toddler snow boots size 11 or 12 in toddler sizes. I can't seem to find any in the stores around here for my son that don't cost an arm and a leg. I don't want to shell out a huge amount for shoes when he grows out of them in a few months. received

I wish I may, I wish I might / Have the wish I wish tonight.  smiley

-- address labels with my name and address on them.  I'd be delighted with any design with sunflowers, lady bugs. fireflies, bees, suns, groundhogs, cardinals, bluejays, robins (since my name is Robin), turtles, Christian / Catholic, cave art, or anything else that is cheery.

-- postcards of typical food / clothes / arts and crafts of different regions, states, or countries, or postcards with recipes printed on the front (such as a regional food or whatever); can be stamped and mailed as a postcard or sent in an evelope.  Duplicates are welcome, as I can trade them.

 -- anything groundhog, as I love love love Groundhog Day.  A plush groundhog of any size or type would be extra wonderful; every year I say that I'm going to get me a stuffed animal woodchuck, but so far I have not done so. 

-- your old maps -- (road maps, atlas pages, whatever) to do papercrafty things with.

-- any seeds for clover plants, such as shamrock, oxalis crimson clover, purple clover, or other.  (These links are just to show photos of the different types of plant, not suggestions on where to get the seeds.)

I'd really love some make-up samples (or unwanted portions of that big makeup kit you got for Christmas). I wear makeup rarely so small sizes or anything unwanted would be great for me. Thanks, Adrienne!!

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

pepsi coupons

tropicana o j coupons

advil cold and sinus coupons

magnetic bookmarks
