Here is my wishlist of things I wouldn't mind receiving in swaps. I'm very easy to please, so I'll probably enjoy whatever is sent to begin with. Still, it never hurts to have a list one can receive hints and help from.
Anything involving Detective Conan. This is my all-time favorite anime and I'm constantly trying to add to my collection. Let it be official or even handmade merchandise, I'll gladly and graciously accept it. I'm very much fond of the relationship between Shinichi and Ran, but Shinichi/Conan is my favorite character from the show.
Miniature perfume bottles. Being a female, it's only natural that I love perfume. However, I'll also love the smaller bottles more than the larger bottles any day. Whether they're empty or not, I'll deeply appreciate receiving these.
Anime figurines. While I'm a collector of many things, anime figurines are what I enjoy collecting most. Not to mention, I also use them in quite a bit of my photography projects - so they have far more than one use for me. Big or small - I'll gladly and graciously accept them.
Honey. In all honesty, I could never have enough honey. I use it in recipes often, but the main use I get out of it is taking a spoonful or two of it for headaches and it works wonders for me. I would prefer single servings of honey to where I could have them on the go (and it would be far cheaper to ship), but I'd be happy with any size.
LadurÃ©e or Paris themed items. I love Paris, but I also love LadurÃ©e. Even if it were something as simple as one of their napkins or bags, I would be extremely grateful. Everything about that lovely establishment is just so gorgeous and I'd love to be able to have an item or two of theirs displayed somewhere in my household.
Individually wrapped sugar cubes. I have an extremely large soft spot for these civilized pieces of work. Unfortunately, they're not very easy to retrieve in the United States. So, if you end up being a swap partner of mine and you have easy access to these, it would be deeply appreciated if you could send some my way.
Decorative tape. As amazing as this is, I have never owned a single roll of the stuff and I'd love to start getting on the roll with it. No pun intended, of course. Haha.
Address labels. I have a fantastic printer for my artwork and photography. Unfortunately, it's extremely fickle with me whenever I want to make my own address labels... which saddens me. If you're able to make address labels without any problems, I'd deeply appreciate it if you could throw some my way. If it wouldn't be any trouble, I'd love it if the address labels could either have kawaii characters, characters from my favorite anime (listed above) or even my own artwork. If you're interested in making some address labels with my artwork, just let me know - I have a lot of pieces perfectly sized and ready to go that I can send to you via e-mail.
Qoo bottle caps. As I'm sure a lot of individuals already know... Japan definitely knows how to make their packaging look adorable in more ways than one. One of my personal favorites would be the bottle caps on Qoo bottles. I've been trying to save up as many of these as possible, but am having difficulties in doing so. If you, by some miracle, have some on hand... then I would graciously and lovingly accept them.
Anything involving taiyaki. I'm head over hills for this Japanese pastry. Always have been and always will be. Let it be candy, accessories, toys or the pastry itself - there's no doubt that I'll not only love it, but also accept it with the most gratitude.
Vintage wooden spools. Like many individuals in this world, I love vintage items. While each vintage item has it's own charm to it, there's something about wooden spools that I can't help but love. I've yet to be lucky enough to get a hold of some of these, so if you have any extras - I'm definitely your girl and would graciously accept them. However, if it's not too much trouble... I'm mainly interested in the wooden spools like the one in the photograph - the type that have their name and whatnot carved or "stamped" into them. To me, they just look far more charming than the wooden spools that have paper labels on them.
Chocolate coins. I could never get enough of these. There's something about the chocolate used on these particular candies that just make me fall in love with them even more every time I partake of one. Not to mention, it was a treat I would eat often whenever I was a child, so the nostalgia feeling that comes along with it is great. Just like everything else, I'm sure that there's so many of these that the world has to offer... and I'd love to be able to try as much of them as possible at least once.
Dotee dolls. Unfortunately, I can't make these for the life of me... which saddens me. Even so, I've always found them absolutely adorable and would love to start at least a little collection of them to display around my arts and crafts area. Besides, how can you not smile when looking at those little darlings? While I may not be able to make one in return, I'd deeply appreciate it if I could receive some from future swap partners... as long as it wouldn't bother or trouble you, of course!
Vintage ephemera. Face it, we all know how awesome and useful this stuff is. Any vintage ephemera I may receive in swaps would be deeply appreciated and graciously accepted. While I could never choose a favorite, I have to admit that I'm quite fond of the illustrations on vintage patterns.
Mameshiba and Nya Nya Nyanko merchandise. Anyone in this world that loves kawaii has a favorite character of theirs and these two are mine. I just can't get enough of these little darlings. Not to mention, since they're based around food items - I get to display them lovingly around my kitchen area!
Chocolate molds. I enjoy cooking and baking like there's no tomorrow. I recently became just as hooked on making my own chocolates and candies and am really wanting my mold collection to grow.
Vintage bingo cards. Amazingly enough, I own none of these whatsoever and that saddens me - especially with all the ideas I have for them for my arts and crafts projects. If you, by any chance, have any extras available and wouldn't mind giving me some - it would be deeply appreciated and I wouldn't be able to thank you enough.
Anything involving peppermint. I always have been and forever will love anything and everything that's peppermint.
Anything that's girly and cute - especially from Japan.
Clothing and accessories for my Azone and Pullip dolls. Handmade or not, I'd love to have more clothing and accessories for these little friends of mine. I'll be extremely happy and grateful for pretty much any style, so there's no need to fret or worry about what I'd prefer.
Stickers sacks, memo pads and letter sets. I honestly have no preference as they're always adorable and I've yet to see one I dislike. However, I have to admit that my absolute favorite memo pad would be this one by Kamio and I've yet to get a hold of it. If you're somehow able to or even already own it and wouldn't mind passing it on to me, it'd be deeply appreciated.
Kiss Me Heroine and Bihada Ichizoku products. Because I have very sensitive skin, it can be quite fickle on what make-up and facial products I use. These two brands, however, have never had a negative effect on my face and I can always use more - especially with how difficult it is for me to get in the first place.
Felt food. Unfortunately, I'm not one of the special individuals that can make these. Even so, I've always had an extremely soft spot for them and have always wanted to start a collection. So, if you are one of these special individuals blessed with this talent - I'd not only be happy, but also honored, to receive such an item and will gladly display it.
Maple tea. I'm not looking for a particular brand - I've just never tried it and would love to at least once. Besides, I've heard it's really good!
Vintage Polly Pocket items. Let it be the compact, the little figures, or both - I have an extremely soft spot for these. I will admit that I'd get more use out of the figures, though. Either way, if you (by miracle) have some vintage Polly Pocket items on hand and wouldn't mind putting them into a swap - I'm your girl.
Swizzels Matlow love hearts. I saw these in a photograph that a swapper took and I immediately fell in love. I've always been head over hills for the Necco conversation hearts during Valentine's Day, but had no idea that such a candy similar to them were sold elsewhere all year round. If you end up being a swap partner of mine and live where these are available - I'd deeply appreciate it if you could send some my way.
Anything with pretty packaging. Even if I were to dislike whatever is in said packaging, it's the packaging that's most important and useful to me. With all the arts and crafts that I do, I tend to save packaging for whatever projects that may come along and they've always became useful at some point or another.
Individual servings. Let it be servings of peanut butter, jam, or whatever else that may be in an individual packet or container. I'm not only in love, but also have an extremely soft spot for these sort of things. Why? Mainly for the fact that it's small, cute, and extremely efficient (at least for me). You can find these type of items in either a restaurant or even a store. The best part of all? Because such items are so small and light, it wouldn't be expensive to ship. Now, that's something everyone can be happy about!
Kitchen supplies. My beloved and I have moved into our own place and I'm really wanting to get some kitchen supplies together. I'd prefer supplies from Japan and/or with Japanese characters (an example would be Sanrio) but as long as they're cute and girly I'd be content. The kitchen supplies could be anything from oven mitts, dish towels, cookie cutters, etc. As long as it'll be helpful in the kitchen, it belongs in this category.
Kinder Eggs and Kinder Joy. I could never get enough of these. While I've only had a Kinder Egg once and have yet to try a Kinder Joy, that was more than enough to get me to fall in love with them. So, if you end up being a partner of mine for a swap and are able to purchase these in your country, it'd be deeply appreciated if you could add at least one to my package. I'd love you forever!
Individual packets of tissue. Just like everything else, there's different varieties of tissue packets and I'm real interested to see what the world has to offer. Not only that, but they're also be extremely useful for my beloved - whom has terrible allergies.
Bento supplies. I love making bentos not only for myself, but also for my beloved. Alas, I'm very low on supplies. Whatever bento supplies I may receive through swaps would be deeply appreciated and very helpful.
Anything involving Starbucks. Like a lot of individuals in this world, I could never get tired of taking a trip to Starbucks. From their delicious coffee to their packaged treats, I just love it all.
Envelopes made from magazines - As simple as these are/seem to make, I just can't get the hang of it. Which, in all honesty, is very disappointing since I love the heck out of them. So, if you have the talent and folding skills to make these, then I'd love to some.
Anything with a dessert theme. What I mean by a "dessert theme" could be anything from cakes, ice cream, cupcakes, pastries, etc. As long as it's cute/girly and it involves a dessert, there's no doubt that I'll love it.
Candy cigarettes. I'm not a smoker, but I constantly crave candy cigarettes as much as a smoker craves real ones, haha. I used to live near a store that sold them, yet they removed them not too long ago... which left me with nowhere to get them. Like many individuals, I ate these often as a child and there's nothing like tasting nostalgia to bring delightful memories rushing back.
Used postage stamps. Just like buttons, I find postage stamps magical in their own way. To me, they all have a little story to tell. I'm able to use postage stamps for a lot of my arts and crafts, so sending even a few of these in a swap would be extremely appreciated and helpful.
Anything involving french macarons. While I (unfortunately), haven't been able to partake of this delightful treat, I'm deeply in love with their look and immediately fill with glee just by looking at photographs of them. So, whether you're able to send actual macaroons themselves or items with a macaroon theme, I'll be a happy camper.
Cigar bands, tea tags and milk caps. These two items are extremely useful (and wanted) in my arts and crafts. So, if you have any extras around your household or just have no use for some that you may own, then I'm definitely your girl.
Foreign foods and candies. I'm willing to try anything once. If I may not enjoy it, that's fine. If I end up enjoying it, then I'll know that there's something else in this world to look forward to a second time.
Foreign magazines, ads, postcards, napkins, menus, etc. I make a lot of collages so all of these are very useful to me. There are a ton of chances where I end up framing and hanging them around my household, however. My personal favorites are from Japan and France.
Paper punches. Small, medium, or large - these are usually a must to own for individuals that do a lot of arts and crafts. I, unfortunately, don't own too many and would love to have that changed. I assure you, I can make a use for any paper punches - no matter the size or the shape. So, if you're willing and/or wanting to put a paper punch into a swap, there's absolutely no need to stress yourself out over choosing.
Anime and/or Japanese fabric. I see a lot of Etsians using these and I can't ever seem to get a hold of it. Long or short lengths, I won't be bothered by what you're able to send as I'd be able to do anything with it.
Handmade items. Some of the most precious and creative things in this world are handmade. I could never grow tired of receiving such items.
Foreign coffee - instant or not. I'm a coffee person all the way. I can try whatever my heart desires in the United States, but it's a bit difficult for me to enjoy other tastes the world has to offer. If any of you are willing to help, then it'd be deeply appreciated.
Miniatures - Re-Ment or not. As long as it's a miniature version of something, I'll love it. I have an odd, yet huge love for these kind of things. It doesn't have to stop at toys, either. For example, if there's a miniature version of a larger container of jam and/or sauce, then I'd be hopping all over for the miniature version.
Every time I remember something, I'll be sure to update this list immediately. So please be sure to keep an eye out!
Here is my list of items that I dislike or items that I'd have no use for that wouldn't be best to send to me in swaps.
Ankle socks. I much prefer crew and especially knee-high socks.
Items with snakes or spiders. While I'm sure there's a lot of people in this world that do enjoy these two, I'm scared to death of them. They're just downright creepy to me and I really want nothing to do with them.
Every time I remember something, I'll be sure to update this list immediately. So please be sure to keep an eye out!
