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 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!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me, I will try to help.

I know this is a long shot, but I just spent $3200 on a new furnace so I don't have a lot of extra money right now. My daughter would love any soccer(any team), Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, or Wisconsin Badgers shirts/jerseys. Size medium in mens or a large in womens.-used is fine 


Another long shot, but a size 8 1/2 or 9 tennis shoes a 17 yr old girl might like-used is fine

Coke codes

pop tabs-for Ronald McDonald House

Jewelry-new, broken, old

Soccer socks

Coupons for anything except baby items

McDonalds monopoly codes

women's workout clothes-size large-used is fine

Bananagrams, Appletters, or Pairs in Pears games

I'm working on filling up a bag of hand-sewn dog and cat toys to give to a local shelter around the holidays. (The previous batch I gave them was a huge hit. If you'd like to see what the toys are like, there are pictures here.) If anyone would like to contribute to this effort, here's what I could use:

Stuffing: the Fiberfil/Polyfil-type stuff, or even batting scraps left over from quilting. This is what I could really use the most, as some of the dog toys are fairly large and take a lot of stuffing.

Fabric: corduroy, denim, woolly/fleecy fabrics, other sturdy stuff like that. (Denim I would prefer in colors/patterns other than plain blue, because I've had donations of old jeans.)

Thread: Any color you have a surplus of or don't have any use for is welcome.

My wishes:

- Stuffed owl of cuddle-able size and softness
- Owl or spider stuff, especially jewelry, knick-knacks, art
- felting needles/punch tool
- cue cat or other barcode scanner
- old green nylons.  They can have runs as long as there are a few intact spots I can use to make a small set of wings for a craft project.
