How exactly does this work?
You befriend "Payitforwardsurprise" and add a list of items that you are looking for to this thread. Others will do the same. If you have an item that you don't need anymore and want to give away, you look through the lists on this thread to see if anyone needs your item. Then, you message Payitforwardsurprise and ask them for that person's address. You get the address and then you can send your unwanted item to that person as a surprise. This is not an exchange, just a nice little thing to get rid of unwanted items and help someone out who may need them. Others may have an item they don't want anymore that is on your list, and they will send it to you. Some people may find an item in a store or thrift for an amazing deal that they happen to know someone here was looking for, and will buy the item and send it to them just because, also. It's all about "paying it forward"...doing something nice for another, just because!

you explained it perfectly, witchyKitty, Shortly I will be going through some totes in the basement, I need to down size seeing as I don't go to the campground haunts any more, I know i have items that folks can use, I would rather some one who I know would be happy with it and get good use out of it have it, rather than donate it to good will or something,,,,


BTW, we need more folks up dating here! even if you just copy and paste, come on all!! we have a LOT more signed up for PFS!

MAIN NEEDS:

*I am REALLY in need of more outdoor decorations and lighting! (See my albums to see my graveyard to see if there is anything you could send for it to match...I also have a large back yard that I can put decor) Must be weather/wind/rain/snow proof.
*Halloween kitchen/baking items
*Witchy/magical decor for my new veggie/herb/pumpkin patch garden.
*Looking for, at least, four Halloween, XS (mini/toy dog breed...small enough for a cat to wear) pet neck bandanas...my kitties wear them for Halloween, and mine wore out. I haven't been able to find new ones. (Not the over the collar ones, just regular tie ones.)
*Funkins (or any fake, carvable type pumpkin like those): any size or shape, orange or white. I plan on turning my back garden into a Halloween decorated pumpkin patch, so I need many fake pumpkins, lol. (I have some tall orange ones, now, so some round or short ones would be great.) Anything that would work for that theme.
*Orange and/or purple LED string lights.
*Halloween subway art word signs like seen at Gordmans, At Home, ect...or handmade! Something like these: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/35325178300760780/ or https://www.pinterest.com/pin/500744052296788541/

GENERAL LIKES:
*Witches (not super ugly, evil ones, though)
*Cats
*Owls
*Pumpkins/Jack-O-Lanterns
*Anything Autumn, Fall, Harvest inspired, especially natural things like pumpkins, apples, grapevine, berries, acorns, hay bales, burlap, corn, spooky trees, fall leaves, ect.
*Crows/Ravens
*Ghosts
*Skeletons/Skulls
*Bats
*Spiders (I'd like some posable, black fuzzy spiders for indoors)
*Vintage Halloween...especially with witch, cat or owl prints!
*Scented wax cubes/tarts (NOT the kinds in the air freshener aisle like Glade or Febreeze...I don't care for air freshener smell.) Autumn scents like pumpkin, apples, caramels, leaves, campfire/marshmallow, harvest, spice, vanilla, cranberry, ect.
*Candles in above Autumn scents...must be jar candles or tea lights. I worry my 4 kitties will knock over votives, tapers or pillars.
*Graveyard items-Realistic, spooky/creepy is better...not gory/zombie, though.
*Lanterns (LED, if light included)
*Mercury Glass Halloween items like pumpkins, skulls and owls in oranges, greens, browns, black or silvers. I LOVE that stuff!
*Folklore/ghost story type stuff like "The Headless Horseman" (Love HH!!)
*Books related to Halloween info and traditions, ghost stories, ect.
*Scarecrows: spooky/creepy or pumpkin head ones.
*Halloween socks...fuzzy, regular crew, or knee high
*I also collect Skelanimals. Kit the Cat is my fave, and then Oliver the Owl and Diego the Bat...but I love the rest of them, too!
*Cute is okay if it's something you think I will really like, just not overly cute or too much of it. (...though cute owls and kitties are always acceptable!)
*Painted wooden crafty items and other assorted crafty items/props you all make so well!
*I know some of you like to send treats and Halloween toys for our pets, which is cool with us! We have four kitties!
*We have no (human) children...it's just my husband and I...and my mom, who is staying with us.


DISLIKES & DON'T NEEDS:
Clowns/dolls
Zombies
Gore/gross stuff
Bugs (except Spiders...spiders are awesome!)
Satanic things
Aliens
*I'm a vegetarian, so no dead animals or animal parts, including real leather, real bone, ect. please!!*
Not a fan of decorating with movie characters...such as Freddie, Jason, Saw, ect.
Don't need Pirate
Don't need Scientist
Don't need blow molds
No glitter, unless it's firmly sealed and can't fall off.
Potion Bottles...I have sooo many of them. (Unless you find a super cool one you think I NEED to have, lol.)

**I have a Pinterest board link in my signature with several Halloween and Witchy boards.**

THEME:

Working theme for GobblerHollow's Haunt 2015: Carnival of Freaks


LIKES:
~ Things oriented to carnival theme, side show items
~ Cool fabric remnants, trimming, etc - could be used in costuming work
~ Extra craft paints, all colors. (Will be needed for painting various signs)
~ Anything Witch/Witchcraft oriented. There HAS to be a witch involved in a Haunt, no matter the theme. Perhaps more Swamp-Witchy / Hoodoo this time around.
~ Items to be used for a Halloween Tree (R. Bradbury style) - Really want to do that this year.


DISLIKES:
~ I'm not into super bloody / gory. Just not my deal.
~ Otherwise, I'm pretty open, working around things I posted above.

You're welcome!! Don't forget to friend request payitforwardsurprise and give them your real name and address!

***Oh, and for those just signing up...make sure if you have additions for your list, to add it to your original posted list by editing it, rather than making new posts. It's easier to find everyone's needs if they are all in one place and it also keeps this thread shorter and easier to sort through! I, myself, forgot something I wanted to add to my list, so I just edited it and added it on.

I want to have a section of the graveyard for famous witches, wizards, tellers, etc. I have a stone for the Wicked Witch of the West that is pretty cool and has her hat on top of it. Would love a stone for some other famous witches, wizards, tellers, etc. or just general wizards, witches, tellers.

Spell books or wands, or potion books for a witch or wizard or VOODOO would be great. I hope to use a lot of bookshelves and need props for them.

Someone asked me why I always do witches---I just love them. I am really farming out most of my other stuff to my daughter and friends. Who knows I may be sending some of it in some of the Secret Reapers.

Maybe a scyring mirror or a great wizard's larger size wand or staff . Like Gandalf, Dumbledore or Merlin. If anyone has done the Harry Potter theme and has things left over they would be great. I WOULD LOVE to have a SORTING HAT or even Mrs. McG's tall hat. Or most anyting HP. I am thinking about that theme for maybe next year.

I will always need spiders, toads, owls, etc. though. They are a witches right hand. Right? Would love a big white owl.

I'm doing the theme Conjurers Consortium this year. I love witches and wizards and have expanded this year to include the wizards and all conjurers. I have tons of witch stuff, but could use more for the wizards and other conjurers.

What would make my little heart go pitter patter would be things to expand for VOODOO or witch doctors. I would love to expand the conjurers to all kinds. The first big reaper is just ending, but already I have seen so many wonderful things that are on the voodoo theme and I am wanting to go and scoop all of this wonderful stuff up. So, if you are creative and can do something along those lines I would LOVE it.

I have almost 20 full size witches, and about that many total of fortune tellers, wizards and sorcerers of various types.


Woud love some more Runes or bones to throw or other mojo type things to decorate with. Also staffs or signs to fit that theme. Especially if I can put them on stands of some kind since this will be in the yard. Skulls and skull or bone necklaces or hats for a voodoo guy.


I love thrift store, repurposed, new and things that are just off the wall. I just love the hunt for things as much as the receiving and decorating. You send it and I will love it---PROMISE
