Hi, I'm Erika from Brasil. I collect letter sets, a stationery sheet + matching envelope. I swap with ladies from all over the world since 2001.
I used to swap other stuff but they were taking to much space and too much time, so I decided to swap only lettersets for my collection.
If you want to make me happy, send me lettersets! It's my main collection and it has become a passion. I like almost every design and brands and I'm very easy to please! But I have high standards when it comes to quality. I do not accept any damaged and low quality sets!
To name a few of my favorites:
Characters: Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Holly Hobbie, Sarah Kay (and all the 80's characters), Diddl, Sanrio, Snoopy, Garfield, Amy & Tim, Happy Go Lucky
Brands: Nici, Lillebi, Santoro's Graphics, Kartos, Mix & match (Chronicle books), Art-box,
Kawaii: I like almost all kawaii designs, but I do have favourites: San-x, Sanrio, CafÃ© CafÃ© Bear, food with faces, fairy tale, frogs, matrioskas, bears. I love to receive all the designs from a package of kawaii letter set, so I have the complete collection!
Korean brands: I'm totaly in love with Korean letter sets (they are bigger than the Japanese kawaii sets). Here are a few: Barunson, Morning-Glory, Papier, Yellow Submarine, Mr.k,
There are a lot more that I like, I'll continue adding names here.
There are other things that I like to receive too - though I do not swap them anymore:
For kawaii letter sets I don't like: - flowers, fruits, geometric desings. - real pictures of kids (animals are ok) - sheets damaged by the paper clips that sometimes comes with the set.
Please, don't send me sets with a single colored envelope (envelope with no designs) or sets where the envelope does not match. I also don't like sets with no designs or sets that were bent or folded. As for the designs, I really don't like couples, angels, real people, real animal, horses, Barbie, boyish sets. No damaged/folded sheets, please!
