I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations?
I love coffee from different places.
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.
Ooh, Kit Kats. I’m intrigued by the green tea ones, and sweet potato and apple pie sound delightful.
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 take a bath almost every night, so I’d love to try new bath-y stuff.
Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love?
I mostly eat plant-based, so really any snacks except meat jerky are welcome. My husband likes green tea, and I’m a coffee person.
Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive?
I can’t think of any!
Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths?
Oh, so many. Cat-Lilith and Cat-Dad, Utter Sophistication, Bits of Birnum Wood, Impromptu Goat Yoga, Saturday Morning Perfume.
Would you like anything from Lush?
I love American Cream anything, Honey, I Washed the Kids anything, and Creamy Candy bubble bar.

Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any? What colors??
Mmm, probably not.
is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy?
I’m intrigued by the Elderflower Cordial.
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?
I’m mostly a natural makeup person, but I love a good pink/berry lipstick.

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 really like cider, not sure about mead, yes to fruit wines. I like beer, light, fruity, not overly hoppy.
Also, what one bottle would you like from the update?? Ooh, that's a tough one. I guess I'd have to say Cat-Lilith and Cat-Dad.
Nail Polish: Do you need or want some? If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? I love the Femme Fatale colors, and A-England brand. I'm not picky about colors, I like them all.
What about postcards? I probably don't need any postcards.
Does anyone else do nail wraps?
I don't really use them.

Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? I
I never really got into them, between BPAL, Arcana, B.Perry, and a few others, I can't afford another perfume obsession!

Um, yes please! All the sugar!
Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits?
I do like to cook, but have a slight Penzey's obsession (it's not my fault there is a STORE a few towns over from me) so I have tons of spices already.

Ooh, Fern is a style I would absolutely wear.
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?
I can't think of anything right now!
What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites?
Ooh, I like Hippeas, and I rarely turn down chocolate of any kind. Well, maybe except super dark, bitter chocolate.
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?
Oooh, that sounds good.
Are you interested in anything from Art Of Tea or Adagio Teas?
I like fruity teas, and spicy green teas.
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?
I don't think I would use those.
How do you feel about enamel pins? Love them, hate them, slightly interested, totally indifferent?
