My mom collects sand from around the world. She has sand from Hawaii, Jamaica, Israel, and... a couple of other places I forget. XD I think like, California and stuff. She puts them in little jars and labels them and puts them on display, and it looks really neat. So, it occurred to me a few nights ago -- you guys are from everywhere! In essence, I'm looking for someone who lives somewhere "exotic" (I use this term loosely XD) but excludes the places I already listed. Perhaps from somewhere in Europe? Asia? Do you live near a beach or lake or other area with sand? Just a spoonful or two or a small handful that won't be too heavy is fine! Not too little, but not a heavy amount, and shipped in any old thing that seals and will keep it inside (preferably unbreakable). I realize this isn't the easiest thing to do this time of year considering the weather in a lot of places. orz; I just thought it would make a nice Christmas present for her. We like adding to our collections on holidays too, right? :D
As for payment, I'm afraid I can only offer to pay for shipping, not any commission, as I'm really low on funds. I can actually only ask this of one person -- possibly two, if someone I've already asked is unable to get some from her area. This is assuming shipping to Canada would only cost around $3 as well. My Paypal literally only has CAD$7 in it, and currency conversions aren't always kind. XD
Like I said, I can only ask one person, so I'm very sorry if I have to decline people. ;_; I want to pick the place my mom might like the most. Please don't take it personally! I truly appreciate any offer, since this is basically me asking you to be a kind soul. XD
This is the first addition to my Palpitoad collection and I am SO HAPPY. They're also my first Pokemon cards. Shame on me, huh? I got them all from jeansama, along with the teensy orange Politoed sticker. He passed along the shimmery Politoed sticker that I purchased from larvitarscar to save me some shipping, which was sweet. The two Bonslys are from poliwhirl! And... and... PALPITOAD! I love Palpitoad so. ;w; SO excited for the MPC.
And a bonus photo just because I thought it was cute:
I'm off to bed now so I'll get back to everyone when I can!
