Haha, yarnisfun was claimed by both german participants, and here I am claiming both of the germans in turn!
I claim kianee for embroidery and stenciling supplies, and some candy (since halloween stuff is hugely discounted right now!
This is my 2nd claim.
I don't really have any specific countries in mind, I'd be happy to receive from anywhere!
*Postcards- Especially featuring architecture. I find American stuff so bleh. I would love anything with European castles and churches, or Asian shrines, temples or gardens. Or even anything depicting the local lifestyle, like fishing or farming or anything.
*Old maps- I like to see how different civilizations evolved.
*Dolls in your country's traditional clothing.
*Vintage buttons or beads
*Yarn (I'm only really familiar with acrylic, but I'm eager to try something else like bamboo, silk, or alpaca...)
*Fabric with prints usually attributed to your culture
*Coffee or tea native to your area.(~lilylola is sending me dolls, maps, and buttons, but I'd still be happy to receive the same kind of items from other countries!)
origami or washi paper thanks travelbug! bento boxes and accessories thanks travelbug!
I've seen somewhere online that a Japanese company makes double ended crochet hooks, those would be way awesome too.
