This is where we post our wishes - maybe things we collect, something we can no longer find in our area, things we have always wanted etc, etc. No wish is too unusual (though common sense is appreciated!); you never know what will turn up.

We must all abide by these PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities.  You may ask for things you collect for charities, such as stamps, pop can tabs, etc., but not for money. This includes 'gofundme' and other fund-raising events.
No buying or selling or advertising. No spam posts.
No wishing for credits.  Credits are bought, sold and loaned only in the Book Bazaar forum, or use the PBS Kiosk to purchase.
Do NOT ask for books, since books are swapped on the site and book deals are made in the Book Bazaar. Sorry, but you may not ask for free books of any kind. (Unpostable books are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread.  There is also a Damaged/Unpostable Virtual Box in the Games forum.)

Our own RAOK rules: 
Please do not offer payment for the things you are sent, including postage. RAOKs are given freely, asking nothing in return except a thank you. You could pay it forward by granting a wish yourself.
Please limit your wishes to no more than 10. Lists could get very long. You can always edit as you go along.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PMs between members. This keeps the threads clutter-free and easy to use. When you come to this ***I Wish*** thread, you see wishes. In the ***RAOK*** thread, it's all about things we are giving away - simple and easy. And to protect your privacy, please do not post your address in the thread - it's all done via PM.
Please check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!
PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly ***Thank You*** thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Check the RAOK thread before you post wishes -- the thing you want may already be there for the asking!  If you see a wish you can grant, just PM the poster for their address.

And please remember, if one of the moderators contacts you about a posting, then we are only trying to keep the forum running smoothly and according to PBS rules. If you are asked to change, move, or delete your post, please do so. Most of you know that the PBS team does get involved to edit posts, and accounts do get suspended, if rules are broken. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

October is seriously the best month (well technically November 1st when Halloween things go on clearance).

Spooky wishes:

  1. Halloween craft/scrapbooking paper or just solid darker colors (prefer skulls, bats, etc than pumpkins or things that say Halloween).
  2. Halloween stickers (same as above, prefer skulls, bats, etc versus pumpkins or things that say Halloween)
  3. Solid colored tissue paper.

Thank you.

🍂🍁🍃  Happy Autumn Everyone🍂🍃🍁

•   I'm taking my client to a Halloween party this year, and thought it would be nice if I wore a costume. ( I don't normally dress up so I currently have no costume...). I was thinking about being a gypsy or fortune teller and was wondering if anyone had anything that they are planning on getting rid of that fits either category.  Examples are scarves, costume jewelry, fortune telling cards , large round sequins, anything that looks like a gypsy would wear. PM with any questions.

Thanks 🍂🍁🍃

I would love to have anything ( bookmark , magnet , wallhanging ,etc) with the Serenity Prayer on it.  I had one when I was a teenager but somehow it got lost in one of our moves.  It has always helped me get through some tough times with my medical  issues. and more surgeries coming up again In November.

thanks so much!    Lisa

Happy October Everyone! :) Happy Weekend as I edit this post, too :)

Thank you in advance to Beth84 for making me labels :)

Mona Claus is making another Trunk or Treat appearance this year at church. The event will be from early evening until 8 on the 29th. I think it gets dark now closer to 7. I would appreciate any ideas for getting a sign to glow in the dark such as where to find glow in the dark markers, letter stickers, or paint pens. I have looked at Hobby Lobby and Michaels, not finding anything. Oriental trading has some cute Christian pumpkin designs that would be cool to try but again would need something that would show in the dark.

Long shot: I am changing this big wish because I found today a green striped T shirt to wear as my top. My costume is all good :) Does anyone have any extra prelit or battery operated Christmas decorations? Nativity would be awesome and lol could use a stuffed or blow up reindeer for my car roof :d I would need anything by October 26th so I can know what I have for that weekend. I do respectfully request nothing Happy Holidays or xmas. For me, it is always a Merry CHRIST-mas celebration.

Hugs and much thanks, always for all your friendships! God Bless You!

Does anyone remember the little Scripture cards that came in sets? They were printed on stiff paper and about 1x3 inches or so. Some came in little boxes or stands, so you could put them on your desk or table and change them every day.

I can't find them anywhere and sure would love to have a set.

Thank you.

I would like to remind all wishers who post in this thread to please remember to thank the person who grants your wish.  Here is an excerpt from the guidelines for this thread (see the first post):

PLEASE say THANK YOU to the person who grants your wish.  You may use our monthly ***Thank You*** thread, or you may acknowledge what you have received via a personal PM to the member(s) who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Sadly, I have already heard about 4 recently granted wishes that were not acknowledged.  The most likely result is that the kind people who fulfilled these wishes will not do so again.  Please respect their time and effort and thank your senders for their generosity.  We understand that your lives are busy and that things can get overlooked, but this is not very much to ask.
