Hello, I've allowed the post below just this once but in future the only selling posts allowed will be for zines or perhaps occasional items related to penpalling/swapping. If you have something you made or are clearing out you may post it here if you want to trade it but that's it.
Sorry, but I just don't want this to turn into one of those ubiquitous selling communities.

Name ~ Abby

Location ~ Gaithersburg, MD

Interests ~ Anime/Manga, Music, Shopping Going out with friends, Theatre, Books, Writing, Reading, see user info for more specific stuff

Do you want penpals ~ Sure, that'd be awesome =)

Where from ~ I think it'd be awesome to have a penpal from Japan or the Philippines. I'm looking for someone to help me with those languages, especially since Tagalog is my parents' native language. But I'll take a penpal from anywhere really.

Grrrls or bois ~ Doesn't matter, boys and girls are fun to talk to <3333

Age ~ 15

What are you interested in trading ~ I'm a big fan of any type of anime merchandise, whether it be manga, figurines, stationary, plushies, etc. I'm also looking for the soundtrack to the latest Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. For simple things, I like getting stationary, small make-up (I'm in dire need of eyeliner), earrings, rings, anything from Claires or Hot Topic especially. I've got a ton of cute small things hanging around my house that I'd like to get rid of and I've also got a selling journal here caff3ine_junkie Basically, if you're looking for something, I might/might not have it but I most likely can get it =)

How can we contact you ~ Email address is seiya_starsniper@hotmail.com, just put like Package Pals or something in the subject and we'll exchange addresses =)

Anything else you'd like to add ~ I love getting mail! Doesn't really matter if you want to trade packages with me or not, but I looooooveeee reading letters, and I love it even more when I have penpals who send me their artwork, I'm not picky at all, and it always goes up on my mirror (it's HUGE and covered by now XD) so I can wake up to it every morning =) I love writing to people so I tend to write a lot, I don't necessarily expect the same, but it would be nice

Do you want penpals ~ I'd like swapper pals

Where from ~ anywhere

Age ~ doesn't matter really

What are you interested in trading ~ I love to spoil pals. i usually send a couple big boxes out a month stuffed with beauty products, stuffed animals, kawaii goodies.. etc. i go to a lot of flea markets so i like to put cute/interesting second hand stuff in there as well. i also make jewelry from buttons (the kind you pin on) and i love to make custom stuff for friends. you will be able to see some of my jewelry when my website is up www.glamkittie.com. I don't really send letters too often b/c i like to use email and IMs to communicate. im just into sending packages really. I'm VERY young at heart and have many friends who are younger girls. so i don't mind younger pen pals. i just would like to have pals that aren't flaky, who are good swappers. =)

Anybody want to swop? [31 Jul 2005|06:12pm]

Is there anybody from the UK who wants to swop packages with things like badges, stickers, letters, zines, etc?
Or anybody who wants to penpall?
I'm 16, from England, and love writing long letters, music and books.

Interests ~
indie & alternative music (bands like radiohead, cure, air, beck, belle and sebastian, hives, mando diao, kent, bright eyes and others are among my favorites), traveling, penpalling, shopping, decorating, movies, cute stationary, internet, fashion, supernatural and more...

Grrrls or bois ~

Age ~
i'm 25.. it would be cool if you're between 20-30 but i'm not too picky about the age as long as we have things in common.

What are you interested in trading ~
decos, a few slams, mixed cds and maybe some stationary and other items too... i don't swap fbs.

How can we contact you ~
comment here with your email if you're interested and i'll email you soonish.

Anything else you'd like to add ~
it would be perfect if you'd be willing to write the first letter. i love handwritten letters on cute and pretty stationary, but don't mind if a letter is typed now and then either, as long as it's still personal and fun. my favorite deco themes are celeb ones these days, but i also swap cutesy...

This is just a reminder that posting adverts to this community is not allowed. This is a moderated community and all adverts are automatically rejected, with the exception of penpal/swapper "adverts" and some adverts for related communities/websites. Sorry if this rule doesn't suit everyone, but I think the majority of people would rather have a community free of unrealted ads.

Mod Post.

I'm going on holiday from tomorrow (25th June) until 7th July. As posts (and new members) to this community need to be approved before they show up this means there will be a delay in their approval as I won't be able to get online. Please don't let this discourage you from joining or posting though, as they will be checked as soon as I get back.
