Loose Tea: sure
Laptop Sleeve: no thanks
Vinyl: no thanks
Office supplies: I'm good (hoping to destash mostly)
Knitting: No thanks
Hellboy samples: testable sniffies of just about anything within the past 2 years is always welcome, I've been very behind on my BPAL as of late. Specifically, if it was possible, a testable sample of the beard oil for the Sith would be nice.
Decorative bowls/plates/chopsticks: I could always use a pair of pretty chopsticks, but not small bowls/plates currently. (for some bizarre reason, sis only ever runs off with *1* single chopstick, and she never uses the ugly/disposable ones, she always grabs my pretty sakura/floral ones, so now I've gone from having 5 complete very pretty sets to 3 random chopsticks. 😠
Mugs: I am swimming in them, thanks, I don't need more
Make-up: I have a ton, but especially if it's colorful/sparkly, I am almost always interested in new playful make-up (mostly eyes/lips)
chapstick: eh, I've got a lot, and unless someone's getting rid of some old Haunt lip lusts (I lost all mine!) or Haus of Gloi's fruity ones, I tend to have enough to have one in the pocket of every coat I own (and I hoard coats/jackets).
I am currently reading: The Name of the Rose... slowly... and Second Nature, at the office, so also very slowly.
Movies: I don't get to see many movies in the theaters (SOOO expensive!) but I did see The Spiderverse. It was fun, but no attachment to it. (The honest last was "Biggest Little Farm" documentary screening (was free), I did love that!)
Looking Forward To: Right now I am mostly looking forward to my upcoming vacation. May 14th - June 3rd I'll be bopping around South America (Bogota Colombia, Peru (Choquequiero and Machu Picchu), and then to Galapagos Islands)
Cookies: I have been having SUCH a craving for GOOD homemade peanut butter cookies lately!
I have so very much, unless it's something really different or a total glitter-bomb, probably not.
I will be pruning both of my bay laurel bushes and will dry the leaves for culinary use (stews, casseroles, roasts, Mediterranean recipes). I will have A LOT, so could you use any?
Do you mind makeup palettes that have been very lightly tested? (Definitely nothing lip related as that's just not hygienic!)
I don't mind, but I'm generally not a fan of makeup palettes - generally there's 1 or 2 I like, and the rest I ignore, it feels wasteful, so I tend to never get them.
Vintage glass items? - weakness! I have very little space for things like this, but I am a sucker for old glass, especially old glass vials/bottles, etc. The smaller or weirder the better!
And yes, can vouch for neptuneanblues baking!
NEW: I always ask - does anyone want/need/can use any type of loose crystals, minerals, or gemstones (I'm always destashing from my Izile's Oddities' jewelry days)? I've got a few raw, but mostly polished and/or cut, all sorts. So very .. very.. many..
And for myself, I'm moving more towards raw/uncut/unpolished specimens (mostly for altar or curio use), and I will always rehome strange raw crystals.
Do you have strong feelings about receiving a book from a series that is not the first one in that series? Does it matter to you whether each book can function on its own despite some backward reference? - Unless it's a book in the middle or further down the line in a series I've already begun (a la Discworld), this might make me twitch. I still largely avoid fiction series due to fear of never getting to the end (author dies, just doesn't publish it, it goes out of print...) Books in a series I'm already invested in (even if it's not "next") are totally welcome!
Men's cologne - oh no thank you!
Comic books: I do like comics, but it can be SOOO expensive to keep up with them I don't often buy them (except for I've bought the trade for Pretty Deadly 1&2, and I had trades of Fables 1,2,3(4?) from a swap and enjoyed that line, I used to collect JTHM and all spin-offs, as well as Poison Elves (I've tended to like small-batch weird comics over Marvel/DC (with Gaiman being an obvious exception), oh, and I'm currently working through Warren Ellis (I would take almost anything from Warren Ellis, honestly, whether I've heard of it or not).
