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 big (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 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.

Happy Fall Y'all! My wishes for October...

* Coke codes (like a zillion other people)

* Any misc. medical supplies... gauze, gloves, forceps, braces, etc. I'm trying to build a nice  emergency first aid kit.

* AT&T Flip Phone w/charger ~ mine is on its last leg & I do NOT want to change to a smartphone.

* Old style hand held shower sprayer that attaches to your faucet.

* I'm new to essential oils & would like to try out some different ones so if you have any partial bottles or scents you don't like that you're willing to part with it would be greatly appreciated. Nothing lavender please, I'm allergic.

* I finally got myself a Seal-a-Meal machine & would appreciate any bags or accessories you may no longer be using.

* Men's Ties ~ There's a local lady that makes lap quilts for charity out of old ties & I've been collecting them for her.

* Any old brooches, earrings, rings, etc. costume jewelry that is the size of a quarter or larger. The bigger & more gaudy, the better.

* Coupons for the following... ALL detergent, Oxy Clean, Windex, Kleenex/Puffs/etc., Angel Soft or Northern TP, Stouffers, Life Cereal, Cheerios, Cocoa Pebbles, Cocoa Krispies, Triscuits, Pringles, Jif, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Miracle Whip, canned tomato products, Pasta & Pasta Sauces.

Anything at all Halloween related for my daughter, Raven. She wanted me to ask, said she would love anything!

Marlboro coupons and Coke codes.

Long Shot--Peanut Butter Twix not the ones with the chocolate cookie. We like the original, regular cookie. They just came back out, they say "New Recipe" I can not get these in my area, I tried Amazon, but it said chocolate cookie. I know they are out there as my sister bought one in another town. If anyone comes across any, send me 1 or 2 lol, Id jump for joy.

Thanks for reading! Happy Spooky October!

I recently began the hobby of making bead stretch bracelets and could use any beads you no longer want anymore to make some bracelets. Also any unwanted bead necklaces (broken ok) that I can take apart and reuse the beads. Thanks!

I want to thank Cynthia (clariail) for the wonderful box of beads she sent me. I really appreciate it!

This is my wish for October:
New socks - any size/color.  We are having a "Socktober" drive for our homeless students in our school.  I teach in a school that has many students in shelters.  Their brothers/sisters/parents need socks too, so any size is fine.  Must be NEW.  Thank you.

Blessed Samhain and Happy Halloween PBS'ers! :D 

Here's some things I could use if you happen across them: 

As always, I've had a TBI and I use little memo pads, note pads, post-its etc. to make lists for my daily tasks. I'm a forgetful thing these days. 

Old maps-road maps, atlas pages etc. for crafting. 

Folk artsy or vintage card fronts, again for crafting. 

Thanks for lookin' guys!

I have a strange request. I am looking for a wide leather watch band. When I searched for one they were mostly called a biker watchband. They were really popular in the 70's. They are usually about 1 1/2" wide. I have recently been given one of my dad's old watches without a band and he used to wear this type of band and I really want the watch to remind me of him. I would prefer brown, but I will take any color if anyone happens to have one.


I would put the following coupons to good use:


Polident denture cleaner

Sargento cheese

Denta Stix dog treats

any dog treat coupons

Bow Tie (one Nephew is on the search for as many as he can get, to wear with his new Doctor Who image)


Long Shots:

Rush Hour DVD (trying to get a copy before my dad's birthday) *received from BostonBooks

Water Color pencils

First time asker, I recently became the Box Tops coordinator for my PTA and I would love to get some extras to boost out numbers!!

Looking through what I can offer others,
