Who Am I?

My name is Abby, I'm in my early 30's, and I love collecting stationery and trying all kinds of arts and crafts.

I love reading, cats and video games. I live in Witch City (Salem, MA) with my spouse and 3 kitty boyos: a fluffy Maine Coon with thumbs named Chowder, and two young littermates named Noodle and Bean, adopted earlier this year.

I have almost 2000 rolls of rare and weird washi tape and I love to share! I'm open to private swaps, so if you're interested, shoot me a message.

Send me these!

Goodies: Art prints, postcards (I love illustrations, not so much photos), letter sets, Japanese & Korean stationery, patterned paper, postal stamps, ephemera, string and twine (I love Avril yarn!), stamped images, handmade envelopes, enamel pins.

Themes/ Aesthetic: I love all shades of green, watercolors, abstract patterns, nature/botanical, painted landscapes, field guide illustrations, bizarre/surreal, cityscapes, graffiti, video games, grungy edgy fashion, rainy days, daily life/monotony, cozy scenes, outer space (especially Saturn), creepy, Halloween, skeletons, sweary or crass, butts/nudes, 420.

Animals: Cats, insects (scarabs and beetles), raccoons, skunks, pandas, donkeys, red pandas, birds (crows, ravens, owls, seagulls, parakeets).

Rare/interesting animals like Tapirs! Okapis! Axolotls! Capybaras! Ostrich! Walruses! Quokkas! Lemurs! Pufferfish! Blobfish!

Characters/ Fandoms: Gudetama, BT21 esp. TATA, Studio Ghibli, One Punch Man, Mob Psycho, My Hero Academia.

Comment: Interesting. I have been slowly getting to know the scene. The illustrator was very talented!! I thought it was Korea, but see that you made a note of where it was and it's actually China! The washi tape on the back is really cool. I haven't seen one like that before!!

Eulegirl rated for WIYM: Touristic Postcard #2 INTL on Aug 2, 2022
Comment: Oh, wow! I would love to tour the secret staircase! How cool is that?
Comment: When I was in Salem, I considered touring the House of the Seven Gables, (still haven't read the book) but I thought the admission was steep. Is it worth the tour?
Response: It's totally worth the tour next time you come! I've taken the tour twice so far, but I'd happily go again whenever I have visitors.
