Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/ - my question, and I have far too much!


Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? No thank you


Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)? Cat toys, but don't need hats or gloves unless ... long half fingered arm warmers wide enough for my lower arms


Do any of these knitted items appeal to you?

Odyssey Shawl

Knitted Pumpkins

Little Bear Stuffy


How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)? It's all good




I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? I only use eyeliner


Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? no thank you, skin is incredibly tetchy these days


Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? The Capatin Marvel zip hoodie


What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?)


·         turtles

·         inappropriate candies (either in shape or in contents—ex., boozy candies, creatively shaped peanut brittle…)


I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations? Seattle chocolates are always well received, and in London I want a meet up!



Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie. Chestnut or apple pie kit kats, cute washi tape or notebooks, Studio Ghibli items, a little kitsugi bowl,  Japanese 5 pepper mix, good tamari





Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love?


Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Cashews if fair trade, tamari or fish sauce


Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive? wooden spatulas, light drawstring produce bags, silicon zip bags




Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths? Impromptu Goat Yoga <3, plus also Bullseye, Generation Spooky, Lazy Daisy (even though its got jasmine), Social Justice Paladin


Would you like anything from Lush?

No thank you




Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? I am rather a medical history geek (but please don't give me smallpox!)


Kickstarter (and similar):  Any thoughts, witches? I was reading that they were refusing to allow a union and fired two union organisers and so I am now boycotting them. I have 2 Patreons and do like them.




Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share? at the top of this blog


And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? in my questionnaire 


Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? my question, I get lots from there


Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any?  What colors??  not for me thanks


 is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? I like the various geometric desk organisers, then I wandered into the cookware section and there is far too much and its too heavy, but I love the little magnetic coloured spice tins





There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I only use self sharpening eyeliner


How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks?  Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)?  New or used? Not for me, while they're usually really pretty, I no longer use them. My life feels like it is continuously The Tower.



Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? Not for me





do you have a favourite saying or quote?  

Far too many so I'll just pick these:

In order to fly all one must do is simply miss the ground - Douglas Adams

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars - Oscar Wilde

Not today - Arya Stark/Syrio Forel (in case you have no idea what I'm talking about, see https://youtu.be/ZcjQ4rQQ8H8 -  that entire 5 minscene got me through chemo on some very bad days)


How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit? Much less able to tolerate than I used to be - probably around 1000 right now. I'm hoping it improves again


How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom? I always get them and never use them so it would be a waste




A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable?  (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.)  

Any fiber issues? crochet is fine, nothing itchy please


About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! 


I'm not buying anything immediately during the round, waiting for reviews. I'm interested in:

Fall Leaves, Fall

Les Heures de la Nuit

Hypnotize Me

Songs of Autumn 1 - most interested

Songs of Autumn 4

Chlorophyll - most interested


Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy?  Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y?  And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) I drink Irish whiskey, proper mead and Jack Daniels with or without honey. 





Nail Polish: Do you need or want some?  If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? I wear it in winter when not gardening. I like pale and unicorn like for my hands, dark and dramatic for my toes. I generally only succumb to BPTP nail varnishes because that's where I see them! For darks, purples, greens, jade, teal


Does anyone else do nail wraps? Nope


What about postcards? Not for me


 Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? If you really need me to look, get someone to prod me, its all a bit overwhelming



How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt.  I have some smoked salt flakes but I forget to use it so probably a waste





I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip.  Are any of these relevant to you or your household? shortbread and caramel/fudge would find a home. I avoid much catnip because my cats are mad enough already


Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? More long pepper, but I think that's easier to get over in the UK


Would you wear any of these? 

Fern , Nuada, Manannan, Duleek Abbey  or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)? I like Duleek Abbey


Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? Lightweight produce bags for loose dry goods or fruit/veg


What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? I don't like vegan chocolate really. I like puffed chickpea snacks such as Hippeas, especially the smoky flavour, blue corn chips,  corn puff type things




 How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute?  Elegantly modern?  Totally Traditional? Erm ... Inept? 




So....we are about to process a metric f*ton of green tomato relish, which is basically bread and butter pickles but with sliced green cherry tomatoes.  Is this relevant to any witchees? I like pickles but have zero idea what bread and butter pickles are. Love relishes!


How do you celebrate Halloween/Samhain?  Do you dress up?  Would you like something for your costume?  And am I the only person left on the planet who wears socks? I don't dress up but I do wear socks, as long as they are not longer than mid calf




Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas? I like black teas, 1896 looks interesting on Art of Tea, from Adagio I like the look of Cat Scratch, Candy Apple Concoction and Thai tea

I make light-weight hairfalls, doll-style, using a variety of fun stuff, like ribbons, lace and soft batting. Would you be interested in receiving a set in the colors of your choosing?  Not for me


And a quick question here--I'm going to this amazing looking event on Saturday--does my witchee see anything they might be interested in?  https://www.facebook.com/events/903999316607440/ (the Oddities Market) This looks fascinating but no idea what I would want - maybe something strange rom the quack medicine type of stall?




How do you feel about enamel pins?  Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent? Interested if its cool :)




what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size? Usually XXL, prefer v necks




OCTOBER LUNACY!  I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye? Songs of Autumn 1, Chlorophyll, Fall, Leaves, Fall or Hypnotize Me


https://archaichoney.com/bloodmoonbotanica  (Britton used to run Haus of Gloi.)  Witchee, are you interested in any kinds of things from the Blood Moon Botanica update? No thank you, I'm on too many meds that might react



also I took some beading classes and have been making bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.  Would you be interested in any?  If so, how big is your wrist or how long would you like your bracelet?  Any preferred styles of beads? I like seed bead bracelets but I'm a klutz and would likely destroy it by catching it on something, so usually only go for sturdier things




If I was to donate to an animal rescue on your behalf as the "lucyboo" component of this swap, is there one in particular that you would choose? It would probably be a cat rescue




What is your very favorite Halloween candy? If you don't have one/don't do candy, what's a seasonal treat you love? I like Reese's Pieces and fudge and jelly belly beans
