My Etsy Wishlist

Hi, I'm Andrea from Perth, Western Australia. I'm 40 and live with my two kids and our cat, Stella. My son Ashley is 18, and my daughter Sarah is 16.

I work from home as a transcriptionist and enjoy being able to work in my pyjamas. I also love visiting museums and galleries just about everywhere I go.

I live quite close to the beach and love anything to do with the water or marine life, love going to weekend markets and coffee shops.

I'm a history buff and love learning about people/places. I also love the paranormal and am pretty obsessed with all things spiritual. Visiting places where I can combine the two really appeals to me!

My Wish List

  • Anything featuring white orchids, prefer dainty
  • Beach/sea creature items for my house
  • Peter Rabbit/Beatrix Potter or Bunnykins themed items
  • Something from my etsy faves
  • Anything library/book themed
  • Me To You/Blue Nose/Forever Friends items
  • Ghosts, paranormal or Halloween items
  • Stationery/school supplies
  • Cat themed items
  • Tees (M, 16AU)
  • Mail art supplies
  • Tim Holtz stamps
  • Beautiful artsy or interesting postcards
  • Anything from the Papermania/Docrafts craft range
  • Travel themed papercraft items
  • Cross stitch items/charts
  • Silver Jewellery
  • Twilight Saga items
  • Miffy items (by Dick Bruna)
  • A letter about a day in your life/town

Some of my Favourite Colours & Themes

  • Pastels
  • Burnt orange
  • Black and gold
  • Olive green
  • Teddy Bears
  • Vintage circus
  • Occasions (especially Halloween and Easter)
  • French vintage
  • Post/mail related
  • Theatrical/movies
  • Anything cute and girly
  • Travel and tourism
  • Musical

Rest assured that I'm not fussy with what I receive and I can assure you that if you put together your swap with care I will cherish it - (I will also plaster photos of it all over my Flickr so be warned!)

Please Note: Unless it is a crafty type swap, please don't send me random bits of craft stuff ie. cardboard, ribbon, paper, embellishments, beads, buttons etc. I have enough random things here already!

Some Specifics

I love travelling- in particular IRELAND or FRANCE. Any souvenirs, ticket stubs, flyers, photos or stationery would be gladly received.

Anything related to airports, airplanes and travel.

Are you going travelling? One of my biggest dreams is to go to Los Angeles and set stalk movies and visit movie studios and theme parks. I would LOVE to do any private swaps for the following:

  • Warner Bros movie studios souvenirs/flyers
  • Universal Studios souvenirs/flyers
  • Any and all theme park souvenirs (doesn't have to be in America)
  • Any souvenirs from Las Vegas, Nevada (another goal of mine to visit!)

I am a COFFEE or hot chocolate drinker, I don't drink tea.

I like airline memorabilia like the kids' packs you get from airlines (I used to hunt for these on ebay but haven't in a while).

As far as crafts go, I'm into cross stitch, tapestry, mail art and papercrafts.

How Can I Help You?

I can't go anywhere without looking for things to swap! I'm always hunting for postcards, letter sets, stationery, Australian souvenirs and generally 'cute' stuff. If you have any requests I would be happy to hunt for you should I have the time to do so.

If you would like to set up a private swap, please contact me and we can discuss it.

I am a generous but fussy shopper and will make it my mission to find you the perfect items to swap!

If You Have Me As A Partner

Please note: Australia has quite strict rules and regulations about what can be sent here.

Please do not send in the mail:

  • animal products
  • plants or plant products
  • tea bags
  • untreated wooden products
  • banknotes or coins
  • soap or washing products

There are many more... sorry about this but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Obviously this doesn't apply if you are sending within Australia!

If I Have You As A Partner

Please allow up to three weeks in some cases for your package to arrive. I hate to be preemptive but I don't want this to cause problems and hurt my ratings. In most cases I send out my swaps very early to allow for this. If a problem arises please PM me and I will do my very best to make sure you get your gift. I am happy to re-send.

Thank you for letting me know my little package arrived. It's good to know that you are happy with it too! Sending you ♥ from the USA.

KristinCali on Jul 21, 2013:

I'm not sure how I stumbled upon you. Probably from a rating you left somebody, I like browsing profiles :)
