This is where we post things we would like,(except money request or books by name). Please remember that we do not offer money for items we wish for because PBS frowns upon that. It also lessens the spirit of this thread and the forum. If you receive, try to give. Sometimes the littlest things can bring a smile.

Note: If I write to you about something you have requested, it is only to inform you that the request is not what this thread is about. If you wish to leave your request in this thread, that is up to you.

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 place to stock pantries, get all our presents for others, etc. It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family. Also, PBS rules do not allow one to ask for money, even for charities, here. You may ask for other items, such as stamps and boxtops, etc.

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 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 so that we know the item arrived. Members do not want to send things, continously, to others who do not let them know the items have arrived.

Here is my real Wish List:

- Weight Watchers recipes, from WW cookbooks, magazines, shared in meetings, anything like that; I am trying to get more into cooking with Weight Watchers recipes

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns (any kind of patterns as I want to start cross-stitching for the online charity LoveQuilts and a wide variety of themes are requested to be stitched)

- Fantasy Artwork, especially featuring dragons, faeries, centaurs, phoenix, sphinx; but anything fantasy related would be awesome (poster, postcard, sticker, old calendar, anything like that)

- Anything Doctor Who or Digimon or Marvel (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and the like) related, I'll be happy to take if off your hands, no matter what the item is

- A DVD of the Spanish romance film 'Like Water For Chocolate' 

3D puzzle or wood model or any kind of kit or model for building a model tower/building; I'd really like one of the Empire State Building but I'd be happy for anything that looks like it belongs in a modern day city; even if all the pieces aren't there or it has been used before, it doesn't matter to me, I would still be happy to have it


I have a wish for a costume piece. I know it's a long shot but I figured I might as well ask.

- Gas mask. The kind that sticks out from your face like a Halloween mask with a huge nozzle and two goggles for the eyes (similar to this: http://fav.me/d2stb1r ). If not exactly that, I'd take something close to it.

Like I said, I know it's long shot but I figured I should just put it out there in the world :)


Thanks for reading my wish list! Happy June, everyone!

June wishes:



I have recently decided that I love the ImPRESS fake nails. (admittedly, I glue them, so they stay on better) but I love the length and designs.  If anyone has coupons for them, that would be great! Also, they come in different sizes so if anyone has sizes that don't fit them/samples they don't like, etc, I would love to take them off your hands! (ha!)  Or really, any type of fake nails (These are just the only ones I don't have to trim, as I like them short) :)

Coke codes

Lean cuisine codes


Thanks a bunch!

Hello - 

I'm a JC student in the process of starting a theater company.  We're looking to put on two plays this summer, but we are poor.

We are on the lookout for published scripts, as our budget is incredibly low right now, so if anyone has scripts they'd like to donate to our cause, we'd be more than grateful!  

(By "published" I mean scripts that are or have been in the past available for sale.  Not looking for amateur works.)

Please PM me, as I'm horrid at checking the forums.

<3 Sarah P.

I'm a musician, and I like to record with a number of different types of musical instrumetns.  If you have something sitting around the house, let me know! 

I'm especially interested in flutes, a cello, brass instruments, percussion.  But I'll take anything that doesn't require lots of repair!  :D

I'm a piano and guitar teacher.  I've got a few students who are not terribly rich, so I try to lend out books to people to help lower the cost of taking lessons.

If you have any extra piano, voice, or guitar books or sheet music lying around, I'd love to help my students out with it!


Especially looking for: Pageants by Donald Waxman (all levels).

AND Easy Classical Music for beginners.

Will take: Any level of music, any type, any genre.

Not looking for: Theory books that have already been written in.


Please PM me,

I'm bad at checking the forums.
