  • book, movie, or TV show recommendations;

  • greeting cards (not note cards though, these have words inside);

  • mini note cards with envelopes;

  • vintage used postcards;

  • items that are known to be from your country or state;

  • airmail items;

  • jigsaw puzzles;

  • maps;

  • anything, and I mean anything with foreign languages on it. (e.x.: a note written by a stranger you found on the ground in Paris.)

  • antique menu/recipe books and such items;

  • novelty T-shirts from antique stores (2XL);

  • zines;

  • kawaii handmade items, honestly kawaii anything;

  • used stamps;

  • ephemera (esp. vintage);

  • audrey hepburn items (like magazines and articles and such);

  • aromatherapy anything-such as infused mittens, socks, etc. (please make sure they are big enough, size L-XL mittens; and size 13 in women's for socks)

  • rubber bracelets from clubs, rallies and such (don't worry about size, these always fit just fine on my wrist)

  • unique/crazy card games;

  • alice in wonderland items;

  • foreign newspapers (esp. Asian, German, and Turkish);

  • Coffee: I don't drink this.

  • Chocolate: in May-September.

  • Religion: I have been more accepting of this. Just do not try to convert me to your religion as I do not appreciate this at all.

  • Politics: I have no interest in talking politics. Please do not bring this up.

  • Die cuts: I have no use for these. If a swap says you can send these I will probably just pass them along.

  • Dollar Store items: that aren't pens, paper, etc.

  • Fabric Pieces: Again, I have no use for them. Though if I am in a journal swap at the time, then I use these in them!

  • Ribbon strands or samples: No use.

  • Books: Adult romance, e-books (such as sending the link for a book swap) ATTN: people have been missing the dislike tab at the top of this and mistaking that I like e-books. I don't care for them!

  • Colors: Brown, camo, orange.

  • Stickers: Kiddie/reward stickers, large (half a page or bigger) stickers, small plain heart stickers,

  • Cars (such as on postcards): sports and muscle autos.

  • Teas: I'm not much of a fan for teas like green, energy plain black flavors, or simple light flavors. (I have a hard time tasting things, even with food. Such as meat seasoning, most of the time I won't taste it after it's cooked.) So, the stronger the scent and flavor of the tea, the better!

  • People who don't rate.

  • Attention seekers.

  • Braggy people.

  • People who don't leave comments when they rate. It literally takes a second.

I do not want to receive anything that discriminates, or is hateful. Or dirty. Or has a gun theme. Please keep it, thank you.


Feathers, pollens, cat hair strands.

about me + random bits.

My name is Samantha, but you can call me Sammy. I live in Michigan, USA. I live in a small town and our little post office here can barely fit five people inside. Often we get travelers who like to take pictures next to the PO. It's so funny!

My hobbies include: reading, writing, journaling, watching TV shows and movies, walking, and gardening in the summer.

I am a part of the LGBT+ community, so if you are too mention it if you would like! I always love when someone mentions it, because it feels like a little safe community inside another safe community.

I suffer from bipolar disorder type one, ADD, an eating disorder, and anxiety. Getting mail calms and lifts my spirit. I feel a lot better when I can fill someone's mailbox and see the effort someone did to get the same reaction.

Random Facts About Me:

  • I love Germany. It's such a lovely country and I plan to visit there later in life. I also am learning German. As well as a few other languages.

  • I enjoy learning about psychology so psychology books are also greatly appreciated. (Used book swaps.)

  • I have three dogs, two hamsters, and two rats. I adore animals.

  • I reached 100 completed swaps on March 18, 2017.

  • I am a tall person.

  • I love vintage, tiny book shops on the street. It's my aesthetic.

  • I adore Johnny Depp. ;) Where are my other Depp lovers?

  • I can watch The Middle over and over and not get tired of it. Trust me, I tried it once.

What I Collect:

I collect a lot of different things, if there's something you collect, mention it!

  • stamps,

  • kawaii goodies,

  • Japanese ephemera,

  • German ephemera,

  • journals with anything in it (art, junk, notes),

  • used (any) holiday cards,

  • postcards,

  • teas

  • stickers,

  • wrappers of foreign foods/candies,

  • foreign language book pages,

  • and foreign currency

How I Rate

Standard SB five: You know, I received the swap, automatic five.

Hearts: I'm not really much of a lover of the hearts just because, you know, feelings and I don't always give them out, but when I do, I give out hearts because:

  • You're one of my few good/very close friends in the mail world.

  • I feel you put a really good amount of work into your swap.

  • You gave me a favorite, or very nice, extra. (I try to be diligent about this but sometimes the playful child in me comes out and I can't help it! Hearts for everyone LOL.)

  • New: you've sent a wishlist goodie.


This is for me to keep track and others to keep accountability.

I receive:

  • @LadySunshine (4/23) CPTYI Tag - anime cards

  • @simcoe54 ( ) Who Likes Tag - vintage greetings from or greetings from postcards

  • @annika22 ( ) CPTYI Tag - four kawaii letter sets
