Sign in to follow this  


Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/   I'd really like to try their conditioning hair rinse, their bubbling scrub and their in the buff scrub.  Scents that interest me are Dark Carnival, Sylph, The Gloaming, and Witch Cake. 


Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of?   Um......Oh!  The Mummy (2019) 


Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)?  I'm a knitter myself, so I'm pretty good there, but having said that I love when other people knit for me!!! 


Do any of these knitted items appeal to you?

Easy Fingerless Mittens

Pfeilraupe Asymmetrical Scarf

Odyssey Shawl

Close to You scarf

Rikke Slouch Hat

Simple Yet Effective Cowl

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)?  Yes please!  I do a lot of shopping at thrift shops and consignment shops because with my health issues I find that I need to wear mostly natural fibers and they are way easier to find there than anywhere in retail stores, at least without spending a small fortune!!! 




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?   Yes, especially any of their lip products!! 


Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands?  Sure!  I'll try them! 


Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated?   I looked, but nothing jumped out at me.  I do need to go in an check out their bras though? 


What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?)  Animal Rescue or Dogs are my top two choices!  I wouldn't say no to inappropriate candies though! 


·         animal rescue

·         pie

·         dogs

·         bears

·         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?

Oh yes!  I love See's Candies, especially the the Toffee-ettes.  In London, I love Thorton's Alpine bars and Liberty of London's fabrics.  In Paris, macarons, tea from Mariage Freres (especially anything vanilla or chocolate flavored) or Hermes (hahaha) or heavy cotton or linen pillowcases or sheets found at a flea market!  (again, hahahaha) 


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. 

None of those Kit Kats, but I'd love a Starbucks mug, or a cell phone charm or two, cute stationary, fun disposable fountain pens, pocky, yummy seaweed snacks





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?

Not sure?? 


Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love?

Barley tea, almond flour, I'd like to try a chocolate based RX bar to see if they are any good or not


Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive?

Not that I can think of?




Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths?  The two that interested me were Justice for Mary and Storge 


Would you like anything from Lush?  I don't think they are in the current rotation, but my two absolute favorites are Potion lotion and Pied de Pepper foot cream!  Other than those two, not really......




Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees?   I've been collecting coins from the different locations that I've visited, and I need (okay, want) a cool coin from Canada, like a Tooney or one of the neat painted coins.  


Kickstarter (and similar):  Any thoughts, witches?   I'm a patron of Kickstarter and I've got a couple of projects that I have open right now, but none coming up that look interesting to me.  If that changes I'll be sure to notate that!! 




Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share?

  On my signature 


And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size?

  bracelet 7.5"

  necklace depends; I have a couple charms for a 24" length, and I like longer, but I also do wear shorter.  


Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy?

  No tea for me right now please!! 


Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any?  What colors??  

  My question, but I can use some uber thick ones 


 is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? 

  So much, so so much.......





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)

   Long past.....


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 at this time......



Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye?

     Not at this time, but thanks - I have a ton already but I am not using them 





do you have a favourite saying or quote?

   Lucky I'm insane after all I've been through



How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit?

   Pretty mild, but I really love the flavors 

How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom?

     I have several, but would love to have a Firefly or Star Wars one!! 




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

Any fiber issues?

     Yes, and no! 


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! 

     None bought for me as none really tickle my fancy 


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)

   Now that I am not taking daily narcotics, I am starting to regain my taste for booze.  I like gin, vodka and tequila.  In wine/ciders/meads I like the really sweet stuff, like ice wines.  I love ice wines, absolutely adore them, the sweeter the better!  I'd love to try some local stuff, bring it on! 





Nail Polish: Do you need or want some?  If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? 

   Nope, but cuticle oil and/or cuticle balm is always welcome 


Does anyone else do nail wraps?

   Yep, and my favorite is anything steampunky 


What about postcards?

   from your local area??  Absolutely! 


 Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)?

    Ooohhh yes please!!  And note, that imps or partial imps are more than welcome, a full bottle isn't necessary; 

   Dark Ghost Velvet; Squid's Ink; Hemlock Cat


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. 

   Yummy, I'll take it thanks!!  My table salt is Crazy Jane's mixed up salt if that gives you any idea? 





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?

    I love a really good buttery sweet shortbread, choc chip cookies, seven layer bars (also known as magic cookie bars).  No poundcake because I make my own, and I can't really do caramels.  Catnip my grandkitties would love!! 


Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits?

   Yes, and I love spices!  I think I answered this in the thread with more specifics.......



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)?


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?

    Do elbow crutches count?  Nope, not really, thanks......


What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites?





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




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?


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?




Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas?

     Yes, but I have a ton of tea to drink before getting any more 

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 right now thank you.......


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)

     Answered in thread......




How do you feel about enamel pins?  Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent?

    Love them, and I would love a canvas bag or banner to put them on 









OCTOBER LUNACY!  I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye?

     Bourbon Vanilla and Yellow Carnation Perfume Oil


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?






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?
