Super long list of wants for the Upcycle Exchange at Strange Folk Festival

The Upcycle Exchange is a super cool program created by Autumn Wiggins of Strangefolk fame. The idea is for people to donate goods to local artists to help out the local artists and to keep the donated goods out of the landfills.
Each artists creates a list of supplies that they would like and people bring them to the Upcycle location to drop off and then they are given a coupon to be used. Most artists are offering a free gift for those donating and some are offering discounts at the festival or on their websites or Etsy stores.
My coupon is for 10% off my Etsy store or a free small skull magnet while supplies last. So save these items, bring them to the Strangefolk Festival, help local artists, save items from the landfill and get yourself some goodies!
These are just my wants. To find out what other artists are accepting check out the
