Here's the ever-changing list of questions from the SW thread, updated as much as I can keep up with it...
Anything from this curiosity shop that interests you
OMG yes everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is there anything you want from Japan? Some kind of food, cute stationary, fandom merch, maybe you collect lucky cats, anything!
I don't know what to ask for... I LOVE weird candy and snacks (nothing too out there for my Americanized palate, though...) I like Gudetama (sp? the weird depressed egg??) and really anything foreign fascinates me so... sure!! OH!! someone once sent me a strange, tiny penis warrior statue which reminds me of the fertility fest in Japan where they parade the giant cocks around... I like strange little figures and such...
Practical Magic or Hocus Pocus?
Didn't really know that was an either or thing... probably haven't watched either one in a dozen years. I do like The Craft as others have said...
Does anything from either of these shops interest you?
The Stitchety Witch (https://www.etsy.com...estitchetywitch) cross stitch creations and patterns
Black Abbey Studios ( http://www.blackabbeystudios.com)art w/ a gothic tendency
Is there something (either a specific item, or type of item, like bath/body, perfume, candy etc) you're really looking forward to or hoping to get?
I don't really go into this with expectations... probably will love anything you send... that said... I guess I DO always hope for something that I wouldn't have bought for myself that is in line with my tastes... or something from a company I've not tried/heard of that I will enjoy... something new and surprising.
What's something you want or look at, but always talk yourself out of buying (or for whatever reason never purchase)?
hmmmm... there are so many many things...
a lot of jewelry
most of the things on my amazon WL lol
On a slightly related note, does anyone have a favorite source for vintage or handmade jewelry?
I shop a lot of the local artists markets here where I live. Bohemian Jewel and Finery Elaborate Adornments (both on Etsy/FB/Instagram) are two of my favorites (and full disclosure: owned by two friends of mine)
NEW QUESTION! What are your DISO BPAL dreams?
Always DISO Voodoo Queen...
a bottle of Hellion would rock my world...
I tend to buy up all the Snake Charmer I see, but I have enough I don't think it qualifies as DISO anymore...
Aged Perversion (like cobalt bottle aged, preferably)
Are there any subscription/subscription style boxes you have an interest in?
YES!!! I've just recently found out about such things, never tried one, and am DYING to order something... not sure what I want though so I haven't pulled the trigger. All these look cool...
Brat Box (pins and patches)
and BarkBox or one of the similar pet ones
Is there any scents from the more current releases you have been wanting to try (Weenies, Motherhood/Fatherhood)?
Inside the Golden Amber of Her Eyeballs
Witch Bride (?)
This Wan White Humming Hive
The Night is Waning Away
The Great He Goat
Zoe and the Goat*
Pomegranate: Snake Oil*
My Little Pop Star
Don't Tell Me Heaven is Under Earth
The Dream is Big Enough For Everyone
Pumpkin Spiced Perversion******* (how the fuck did I miss this?!?)
For those of us Switch Witches who ARE witches...….if you have a BoS would you like a page for it from your witch?
I'm not really that kind of witch
What house were you sorted into?
I do not know my House
Are you witchy or like witchy things like incense, sage, palo santo, crystals, tarot, altar supplies, candles, etc.? Whatcha like/need?
hmmmmm... yes is the short answer.
I love incense, sage, palo santo, etc. I adore crystals and am actively trying to learn more about them (so books on crystals are awesome, as are actual crystals I DO have the The Crystal Bible by Hall but other books welcome)
my whole house is a giant alter of sorts so supplies are always good... things that are decorative are always good such as table runners, scarves, alter cloths, etc, or little dishes/bowls to put offerings/herbs/whatever in... I don't do a ton of rituals that involve "action"... more a lot of "prayin' and layin'" as my friends call it.... sort of a purposeful display of sacred objects with intention whispered over them more than something you'd see in The Craft or whatever.
CANDLES!!!! I love candles...
Do you need decanting supplies? Sample vials? Pipettes? Standard labels?
I don't really decant
Would you like a postcard from the fancy schmantsy St Pancras Renaissance hotel that I'm about to stay in several times over the next month?
Sure, frameable postcards are always awesome
Does anything catch your eye from Future Primitive, including oos things?
I have never heard of them before but the lotions look amazing
Speaking of OOS/Discontinued - Are there any old favorites from no longer operating companies that you would like if either anyone had a stash OR could find a reasonable dupe?
meh... unless you can find me some Voodoo Queen
Booze, yea or nay? Favorite kinds?
most definitely YAY!
I drink tequila almost exclusively...
but I'm not actively opposed to anything except gin and jack daniels.
Knitted stuff? Need/want anything specific? Colors?
as I said in my questionnaire... Texas = hot... but with that in mind... knitted things are awesome...
Feelings re: Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland? Love it, hate it, meh it?
love love love love love
Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Any merch or pre-Nano supplies you might want?
no spare time
I just recently discovered MoonMagic -jewelry with a focus on moonstones but also opals and labradorite. They currently have a sale. Anything that stands out to you? (moonmagic.com)
omg! everything?? faves include: majestic ornament, radiant luster, lynx light, cosmic love, eye candy, eternal bliss, gothic affair, ... I could go on and on and on...
Are you interested in anything from Nerdlacquer (nerdlacquer.com)?
so...I JUST spent too much $ on a bunch of BPTP claw polish and don't NEED any more...
that said, the Electro Flash lip stuff looks awesome and I'd totally WEAR and USE more polish (their stuff looks wonderful)... I just refuse to window shop for some as I fear it will negatively impact my pocketbook LOL
