Welcome to the RAOK wishes thread - more fun to be had in the RAOK!

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, you never know what will turn up here.

We must abide by PBS rules :
You may not wish for money, or monetary donations for any charities ( you may ask for things you collect for charities, like stamps, can tabs etc., but not for money)
No buying or selling or advertising.
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. You may not ask for free books of any kind sorry. (Unpostables are given away in the damaged book thread of the Bazaar and sometimes in the RAOK thread)

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. Try to pay it forward, maybe grant a wish yourself.
Unlike many other forums, we ask that you do NOT reply within the threads. We do everything by PM between members. This keeps the threads clutter free and easy to use. When you go to the wishes, you see wishes. In the RAOK, it's all 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, if you post wishes, be prepared to check in and answer your PMs. It's frustrating when people want to grant your wishes and don't hear from you!

You do need to say THANK YOU. See our monthly *****thank you thread****, or you may acknowledge what you have received via PM to the members who granted your wishes. This is very important if you wish to continue to receive things from others.

Tips :
Check the RAOK forum before you post wishes - they 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, 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 the PBS team does get involved to edit posts and accounts do get suspended. We hate to see that happen to our fellow RAOKers!

If you have questions, feel free to contact me.

I am wishing for the following:

Stationary, cards, etc. My sisters write pen pals and they love any stationary that is different than just plain ole notepaper. 

Makeup and beauty samples. I travel a lot so these come in very handy. Anything from shampoo, soap, makeup, perfume, etc.

Military related items. My brothers love the military postcards, stickers, etc.

Thanks in advance!

Here is my Wish List:

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns (any kind of patterns as I cross-stitch for the online charity LoveQuilts and a wide variety of themes are requested to be stitched, though please, no Christmas/winter/angel patterns, I'm all set on those!); I'd especially like those 'One Nighter' pamphlets 

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

Small thin pins, for the purposes of pinning down completed cross stitch for framing (would also be happy for just any advice on what kind of pins and where to find them)

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

- Anything related to dragons: statues, posters, postcards, calendars, toys, figures, anything remotely related to dragons (honestly, I want to write a book featuring dragons and surrounding myself in dragon memorabilia is wonderful inspiration; would also welcome any other mythical creatures but mostly dragons)



I have wishes for costume pieces. I know they are long shots but it never hurts to ask, right? All of these would be for an adult, nothing kid-sized, thanks!

- Poodle skirt (costume or otherwise), any color appreciated 

- Yellow (or white that can be dyed yellow) jumpsuit/full bodysuit; skin tight or baggy, either way works

- Black or purple or blue witch/wizard hat, tall and pointy; it's okay if it is worn and raggedy, that's the look I'm going for

- Red or purple full length skirt

Like I said, I know it's a long shot but I figured I should just put it out there in the world :) If you have any ideas on how I can get my hands on them for cheap, I would also welcome those suggestions.


Thanks for reading my wish list! Happy October, everyone! My favorite month! :D

My wishes for October are:

A fall themed or holiday bookmark.  Or one that looks Victorian. 

Barretts - I have long hair and use them every day.  I don't come across many that aren't just plain brown.

Anything with hearts or pearls.

Thank you for reading my wishes.  I wish everyone a blessed and happy October!  I will be listing more dvds and things too.

Hello and Happy October!

I am still wishing for prayers as my ankle is still in a boot and no weight is allowed to be put on it yet.  I go back to the Dr. Friday to see if this changes.  (I want to go back to work.)

Happy October, everyone! :)

My wishes:

- Cute accessories of any kind, like little cupcake shaped items or bracelets with hearts on them. I collect cute! Haha.

- Anything Hello Kitty releated 

- Anything Snoopy/Peanuts Gang releated 

- This one may be a longshot but I thoguht I'd take a risk and ask. :) I love vintage and retro styled dresses/skirts (from 50s to late 60s styles) and that includes anything that just looks like that style or actualy from those eras. I can wear a small to medium in most or size 2 to 4 (different brands have different concepts of size). I can give exact measurements if needed. I'd be glad to fix any minor repairs they need myself and/or, if they have been stored away for a while, I can get them dry cleaned myself on arrival.

Thanks for reading. :)

My church is collecting Labels for Eucation.

We collect them for the Baptist Friendship House in New Orleans.

This is a ministry that helps women and girls that have been trafficed. They help them get back to their families and rebuid their lives. They also help women in difficult situations and their children get on their feet

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

My October wishes:

- Owl, bluejay, or spider stuff, especially jewelry, knick-knacks, art
- scrap yarn with interesting textures, any colors welcome
- Prayers for discernment about employment.  I make sort of okay money doing what I'm doing, but am just kind of *done* with my job and can't figure out what to try instead.  More details available by PM if you'd like.
