I'll post answers to questions and my wishlist here!
Paintbox Soapworks - Demeter, Forsaken; Red Right Hand, Pumpkin Daddy, GTFO, Perdita
Sihaya and Co - Black Roses, Sisterhood of the Moon, Amber & Velvet, Samhain Dusk, Secret Society, Dark Crystal, Spell Weaving. Also Gilly's Tiger Eye Chandelier Earrings
I love chime or taper candles of all colours. Incense is always good, particularly rose or lavender. I love crystals, candlesticks, incense holders, suncatchers, altar cloths.
I’m extremely addicted to coffee and my favourite tea is Stash’s Christmas in Paris. I don’t like maple or butterscotch
Online shops I love (that I forgot to include in my questionnaire): Nui Cobalt Designs, Lucky Mojo, sock dreams etc.
Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things, I've probably already bought it! 🤣 )
Rook & Raven and Bell Book and Candle sound amazing in all things.
Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of?
I’m a wimp. Horror is not my thing.
Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific;
I am here for fingerless mittens and slouchy hats.
How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)?
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?
Sure thing! I have misplaced my Written In Blood lipstick and I am devastated about it.
Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands?
OH, and any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated?
No thank you.
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
- 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?
No, I can’t think of anything specific..
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.
Again, nothing specific. I’m pretty easy to please!
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?
I’m not familiar with their offerings but again, super easy to please!
Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive?
Unsure! I like sweet and salty, I’m game for new things!
Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths?
I got a bunch of decants because everything looked good.
Would you like anything from Lush?
I love their Olive Branch scent, and their Ocean Salt. I'm particularly fond of bath bombs and bubble bars, too!
Kickstarter (and similar): Any thoughts, witches?
I've backed a few tarot or oracle decks. I'm not averse.
So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have. Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees?
I'm not much of a collector, period. I tend towards minimalism.
Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share?
And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size?
I like chokers or super long necklaces. I could always use more silver chains in the 18-22 inch range.
Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy?
I really like tea! I like lavender the best.
Knitting questions have been asked, but how about washcloths, anyone need any? What colors??
I'm set here.
is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy?
Again, I'm pretty happy with everything.
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)
Again the Rituel de Fille answer above.
How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks? Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)? New or used?
I love decks. I collect ones, but I'm pretty particular about aesthetics. I like Art Nouveau, or very minimalist decks. I've had my eye on the Maiden Oracle for AWHILE.
Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye?
I don't wear much pigment kind of things.
do you have a favourite saying or quote?
All in the fullness of time,
“I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” ― Anaïs Nin
How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit?
I'm a wimp for spice.
How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom?
Sure. Flowers or pretty things.
A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable? (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.)
Any fiber issues?
I'm easy either way. I just don't like itchy or scratchy yarn. I have incredibly sensitive skin.
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've actually not purchased any for myself. But
Kisses for Us All
That Ere Wolf
The Blood is the Life
The Country Gets Wilder as We Go
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)
Yes but good luck shipping any of this to Canada!
Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in?
Zoya is my favourite and I could always use more pinks and reds and everything really.
Does anyone else do nail wraps?
What about postcards?
Again, I'm not much of a collector.
Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)?
No thank you
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 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?
Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits?
Would you wear any of these?
Hooded things generally appeal but I have narrow shoulders so regular scarves tend to fall easily.
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?
What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites?
I'm not vegan so I don't tend to pay attention to whether something I am eating is or is not vegan,
How would you describe your crafting style? Whimsical & Cute? Elegantly modern? Totally Traditional?
I don't craft.
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?
No thank you!
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?
SOCKS ARE AMAZING.
This halloween I'm dressing up as Jessica Jones Rabbit, and my costume is done!
Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas?
I enjoy anything with Lavender. I found one that was a Citrus Sage Lavender that was just delicious.
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?
No 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)
No thank you
How do you feel about enamel pins? Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent?
Love them! Anything with a feminist bent, I'm here for.
what is your T-shirt/shirt of choice Size?
I'm actually pretty particular about t-shirts, and generally prefer tanks. I can't wear crew-necks. I usually stick with a deeper V or a U.
OCTOBER LUNACY! I know turn around time is unlikely, but just saying (JUST SAYING), dear Witchee, did anything catch your eye?
PALO SANTO AND SANDALWOOD!!!
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've got a ton of beaded jewelry, so thank you!!
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?
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 just got an email from Lush that their Christmas stuff is now up online! anything you might like?
I love anything Lush!
If you were my witchee, would you enjoy home made (canned) preserves? I'm going home to Can All The Things & I'm thinking some bananas foster butter/sauce might be a nifty thing for you.
No thank you
I am in Las Vegas is there anything you would want from here?
No thank you!
