This is where we post things we would like, except money request or books by name.   

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 NOTfor 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.

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.

I am wishing for:

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns

- Bandanas, as they are the only means of controlling my hair. Any colors and patterns are welcome, but I especially like blues and greens

- 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 Digimon related: figures, cards, books, stickers, toys, anything like that. My little cousin has become obbsessed with Digimon: Digital Monsters recently and I wish to feed her addiction ;)

- Old board games: even if all the pieces might not be there, that's fine by me; especially Scrabble

Long shot wishes:

Dog carrier basket/bag for a bike or a backpack carrier for a little dog. I want to start bike riding again (haven't done it in a very long time) and I want to take my little dog, a Papillion, with me. If anyone has either of these items they'd be willing to part with, my dog Penny and I would put it to great use! I would also be happy with suggestions of where I can find these for cheap.

Fake plastic cookie. I want to do a silly gag gift for a friend and that would involve a fake cookie. You know, like the fake plastic cookies a little kid would use to play make believe in their play kitchen. I've seen sets of whole kid kitchen items that have cookies but I'd rather not get a whole set just for one plastic cookie.


I have wishes for costume pieces. I know they're a long shot but I figured I might as well ask.
- Motorcycle helmet. Not a bike regular helmet that only covers the top of your head but one that also comes around to protect your chin/jaw, if you know what I mean.
- Gas mask. The kind that sticks out from your face like a Halloween mask with a huge nozzle and two goggles for the eyes (like this: http://disparue.org/gallery/7/doctorwho/1/109/images/doctorwho109_1919.jpg). If not exactly that, I'd take something close to it.
- Black cloak and hood. Nothing special for this one, just your typical black cloak, either with a hood attached or as a separate entity.

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

Thanks for reading my wish list!

My wishes are the same as they have been.  Thanks for looking!

In reading all the forums, I have seen people discuss the bookmates/openpage covers.  I would love a tradesize since I have been accumulating a lot of tradesize books since joining pbs.  I know it's a longshot, but you never know.

***If anyone makes cloth bookcovers, I would love a betty boop, comedy and tragedy  (masks) or celestial tradesize.   (or solid color. stripes, dots or patterns- no green, yellow or orange please)  ***still hoping

comedy/tragedy stickers

pepsi coupons

magnetic bookmarks

Thanks to everyone who has granted my wishes.  I post in the thank you thread, but in case I've omitted anyone, I want you to know I appreciate it!

Remember -

These members collect expired coupons  to send to military bases.   Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please.  Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can.  Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them.   This is a great help to our military families.  (Only regular coupons, not those  for specific stores, please.)

Thanks to Kim, Lisa and Cassie and Jessica for their efforts.   If anyone else is doing this, please PM and we will add you to the list.

September wishes:

To help out our school

Box Tops

Campbells Soup Labels

Community Coffee labels (think this is a Louisiana only thing)

And if anyone has new Early reader books - especially multiples of the same that you would make a deal on, please PM me.  I'm trying to help our Literacy coach provide books for all the kdis in our school - or suggestions where I can find "cheap" deals too.  ;)

And personally - any small tupperware containers (muffin/cupcake size) or cute food bags, etc.  My kids and I are doing Random Acts of Baking and sharing with neighbors, teachers, etc.


Ok - longshot addition - my 4 year old has started dance, so any Toddler size 10 or 11 ballet shoes would be great.  The teacher doesn't like out "slipper" style one from Walmart, but until I know she really wants to do this, I'm not buying new ones for $25.  ;)
