About Me

๐Ÿšญ Updated Feb 21, 2021

I'm very sensitive to cigarette smoke and have to throw it all away. I'd rather you keep your things and we will work something out.

Hi, I'm Allie! I'm new to Swap-bot, but not to swapping. I'm a postcrosser , postfun-er, philatelist (stamp collector), and more recently a geocacher (always willing to swap trackables)

I've narrowed my interests in stamps to these subjects and countries:

  • China

  • Japan

  • Hungary

  • Britain

  • Space Themed

I love postcards and cards of all types, but especially love Sci-Fi, Horror, Bigfoot, UFO, Kawaii, propaganda posters, real photos of people, tarot, odd/weird, and space related ones.

I love thrifting to find weird stuff. Love, love, love unusual, strange, funky, absurd, yellow, teal, neon pink, funny things!

If it makes you guffaw, snorkel, huff, puff, scream, tsk, or Vworp, I'm probably into it.

Always up for direct swaps or trades.

Favorite Crafts

Right now, I'm expanding my creative brain into ATC's, writing, and creating an entire Frankendeck of groovy playing cards.

I will always try to do some sort of mail art on your letter or package. Each letter is special to me because we are forming a type of friendship. It's been very difficult for me to connect with people in the real world and the pandemic has made me a little paranoid. I have one social media account- Instagram. I post ATCs and bullet journaling.

Things I Don't Appreciate

Some things I'd rather not receive are the following:

  1. Loose glittery messy stuff or confetti

  2. Childish dollar store stickers/Kiddie stickers/Food stickers/glitter stickers

  3. Marker or pen cancelled stamps ๐Ÿ˜’ it just hurts me.

4. Please ๐ŸšญNOTHING SMOKEY- I have an allergy to cigarettes.

Things/Topics I Appreciate

I appreciate when people read my profile and take the time to send meaningful swaps. You took the time to send to me and it is a special gift that could only come from you

Here are some things I know I like:

  1. Bold, bright, high energy colors/ Abstract

  2. Pop/Pop punk Art

  3. Philosophy

  4. Spaceships, planets, stars, astronomy, and anything Space related

  5. Stamps

  6. Kawaii any/everything

  7. Japanese block print

  8. Nature themes

  9. Quirky stickers

  10. Graffiti Art

  11. Pulp Fiction Art

  12. Bigfoot/Mothman legend type things

  13. Retro Art

  14. Curiosities

  15. Tarot / Occultism / Crystals / Magik

  16. SURPRISES!! ๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒ 

Mail Questions and Answers

Q: Why might the sent mail time stamp on swap-bot not match with the postmark you get on the letter or postcard?

A: All the mail from my housing area goes straight to Charleston. It's a 2 hour drive in normal circumstances so what is that in mail carrier time? Perhaps 2 days? I always mark it "sent" as soon as I place it in the mailbox. Then it must travel up to get sorted and cancelled. It's not ideal, but that's the reason. Please be patient with the mail system. It's not usually slow, but international mail takes around 16-24 days while USA mail takes about 5-9 days even if it's the next state over.

Q: Help! My swap came with postage due or was torn in the process of handling.

A: Please send me a photo of the postage due or torn package and I will repay you with unused postage stamps or resend the items. Let me know and I will fix the issues.

Q: Do you use saliva on your letters?

A: No, never. I use glue and tape, but not packing tape.

Q: Do you rate? When do you rate?

A: If you didn't get a rating from me, the rating must not have taken because I rate as soon as it comes in.

Q: When do you send your swaps??

A: I send all my swaps out on time- always, I don't flake!

Updated 3/24/21: I've had one mail get lost from Feb 21st-22nd, 2021 and I've never experienced that in my whole life so if you don't get something from me, it's lost or chewed up or an alien took it. I take pictures of all my swaps with postage just in case I need to recall what it looked like or when I sent it. Message me and I'll send another out right away!

Comment: Thanks for all the great cards, and so many extra! I like them all. I especially like clear cards, and the one you sent me is the first clear card I've received, so I was happy to see that one. I just bought a set of postcards that are covered bridges in Oregon, so I'll have to look to see if the one on the card you sent is one of the postcards. It's amazing to me that I've received 50 cards in swaps so far, and no duplicates! And I absolutely LOVE the stamps you used on the envelope!
Response: Oh wouldn't that be neat, to have a matching card and postcard! Thank you for rating and for the heart! ๐Ÿ’œ
