2018 Halloween Switch Witch Questions



There are some really awesome spice shops in NYC. Would you like/need any herbs or spices?
Anything middle eastern or north african! smoked paprika is always always welcome!

Anything from this curiosity shop the type of thing that interests you? Dreadful Curiosities: https://www.facebook.com/pg/dreadfulcuriosities/photos/
Yeah! that looks pretty neat, i love funky little things.

For those of us Switch Witches who ARE witches....if you have a Book of Spells would you like a page for it from your witch?
that would be fucking awesome!
What house were you sorted into?


Practical Magic or Hocus Pocus?
omg only one?! grown up witch me loves practical magic for many reasons. spooky, halloween me loves hocus pocus for halloween and nostalgia.

Does anything from either of these shops interest you? No thank you
The Stitchety Witch stitch creations and patterns
Black Abbey Studios 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?
nothing in particular :)
What's something you want or look at, but always talk yourself out of buying (or for whatever reason never purchase)?
I can't think of anything!
Are there any subscription/subscription style boxes you have an interest in? (This could be a very specific sub like sihaya or lootcrate or an idea/concept you're interested in without a specific company in mind, like "book related candles").
goddess provisions and anything witchy or new age-y. Sihaya is nice! I make candles, so I don't need anything with candles. I wouldn't want a book one since I like to pick out my own.

Coffee or Tea?
Coffee moreso, but I like tea a lot too.

Anything from David's Tea(esp the new Halloween) that catches your eye?
WITCHES BREW!!! stormy night looks good too. ooooh and maple matcha.
What are your DISO BPAL dreams?
hellhound on my trail

Spooky stuff! D'ya like... ghosts? Skeletons? Aliens? Bigfoot? Unsolved mysteries?
Yeah! Ghosts mostly.

Is there anything from the Lush christmas line that was just released that you're interested in?
My favorite is Lord of Misrule and I love the butter bear/butter balls.
Is there any scents from the more current releases you have been wanting to try (Weenies, Motherhood/Fatherhood)?
There are a lot I want to try! ZOE AND THE GOAT, encapment of shepherds, junpier nourished, the goat and the vine, the witches ride, mostly. Samhainophobia, Lambs Wool, Pumpkin Musk and Black Oudh, The Hare, This Wan White, a certain nameless awe, a young boy and his brother. DEAD LEAVES! and vanilla incense, red carnations, maple sap, sugar cookies.

LILITHS! blue blankie, don't tell me heaven, meditation buddy, roof goblins, the dream is big enough

How do you feel about buttons, pins, and badges?
YES! I love enamel pins, and patches.


Are you witchy or like witchy things like incense, sage, palo santo, crystals, tarot, altar supplies, candles, etc.? Whatcha like/need?
This was my question and I am super witchy!

Do you need decanting supplies? Sample vials? Pipettes? Standard labels?[
No thank you!


Let's get specific about this knitting thing! Do any of these items/styles appeal? I've numbered these so you can just reference numbers if you like!

11. Little Kindness Monster (https://www.ravelry....indness-monster
12. L'il P'kin (https://www.ravelry....bitty-pumpkin-3

If your witch was able to obtain digital media that you could not access (TV, movies, books, etc.), is there anything you have been in search of for quite a while? If yes, what devices do you use to play such (i.e. Windows, Mac, etc.)?
I can't think of anything!

Is there anything you want from Japan? Some kind of food, cute stationary, fandom merch, maybe you collect lucky cats, anything!
Gudetama and Aggretsuko are my favorites! My husband used to live in Japan and also likes cute things from there. Sumikko Gurashi (omg I am butchering the spellings here) is a household favorite. Fun kit-kat flavors, kitty things, Japanese Halloween things, Pusheen, and Ghibli stuff!
Are you interested in anything from Nerdlacquer? http://www.nerdlacquer.com/
No thank you.

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?
I can't think of any!

Booze, yea or nay? Favorite kinds?
Yay!!! I love gin and whisky most of all. Bitters are also most welcome. My favorite cocktails are old fashioneds and gin and tonics.

Knitted stuff? Need/want anything specific? Colors?
Yes! I lost my handwarmers in Iceland a few weeks ago. I would love handwarmers or fingerless gloves. I like grey, mustard, dark reds and purples.

Feelings re: Lewis Carroll/Alice in Wonderland? Love it, hate it, meh it?
Very meh.

Are you thinking of participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Any merch or pre-Nano supplies you might want?
No thank you.

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)
OOOH. I LOVE moonstones and work with them regularly in my witchy practices. I don't have any labradorite pieces, but also love it. I adore jewelry and wear lots of it. I have been wanting a midi ring! They seem to have lots of pretty thing in silver and rose gold - something I've been wanting to get more of. I wear lots of rings (size 6 ring finger, or up a couple sizes for index finger) have lots of ear piercings and wear bracelets regularly. For necklaces, I prefer at least 20". I really like their moon phase stuff! I actually like pretty much everything, except for things that have a halo of stones around it or lots of bling to it.

Do you like quirky socks? Any preferred styles (ankle, thigh-high..)?
I do love socks, but I have a lot. I prefer ankle length. Bombas are my favorite brand!

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? (Witches, I'll happily send one to your witchee if they would like it)
I keep reading this as "St. Pancreas" so YES. <3

Does anything catch your eye from Future Primitive, including oos things?FYI - I don't have a bathtub. Gringott's sounds TDF! I love bar soaps, so they'd be most welcome. I don't need any lotions or scrubs. Hair stuff, perfume, and bar soap would be great!
