Individual perfume made to your specifications

User name: forest_rose
Email: hayes_natalie@yahoo.co.uk
Examples of my work: Alas, we have no scratch and sniff internet - but I offered this for help_pakistan and the recipient was very pleased with it!
What I'm offering: A perfume made from essential oils and perfumer's alcohol, in consultation with you. I'll make it around your likes and dislikes, and try to design something that will suit you. I have quite a good collection of oils so it's likely I'll be able to accommodate your wishes - although please note I have no jasmine or sandalwood (I can substitute other things if you like these scents).
Starting bid: $10 (I will cover postage anywhere.)
Fandoms: Any or none!
Please note I won't be able to send this until April as I have my final exams this month.

Examples of my work: Here is my collection. However, those have been cuddled somewhat, so if you'd like to see some without wear, you can go here.
What I'm offering: A custom crocheted doll, about a foot high. It can be one of my monsters, a doll made to character specifications from one of your fandoms, or an original doll that you design yourself.
Starting bid: $5
Fandoms: Any or none.

User name: mind_the_tardis
Email: PM me!
Examples of my work: No examples up, as I think readings should be confidential, but check out the decks I have available to use.
What I'm offering: A 3-card reading (I might expand, if I don't get a good answer from the 3 cards I draw), using any of the decks I own (see above link), on any question you'd like (remember that I'm not a medical or legal professional, of course). I'm a new reader (a year's worth of reading on tarot, and only about 10 readings to my name), so no miracles, but I'll give it my best! I'll send you a write-up of my reading, and scans of the cards in it.
Starting bid: $5 USD
Fandoms: Here's another option: Do you RP? Fan a certain character? Reading for characters can be a lot of fun! Give me info about your character, and a question they might ask, or you want answered about them, and I'll read for them.

I love the RP reading option. $5 bid!

Offering: Homemade Jelly Candies

User name: blueleopard87
Email: blueleopard87 [at] yahoo [dot] com
Examples of my work: here, here and here
What I'm offering: 1 pound homemade vegan jelly candies
Starting bid: $15 USD
Fandoms: N/A

These soft jelly candies are made from scratch and are completely vegan! (But if you're worried about that, I can show you the ingredient list.) They're very sugary-sweet, but if you're trying to be a little health conscious, they can be made with fruit juice and a little less sugar.

You can choose two flavors: orange, raspberry, lemon, lime (pictured are orange and raspberry)

If there's another flavor you want, I can probably make it so don't hesitate to ask. :) (Listed are just what flavorings I have on hand at the moment.) You can also choose to have hearts, squares or triangles (you'll get the most individual pieces from squares.)

These jelly candies will last several weeks in the open air (but they've certainly never hung around for that long in my house), but it's recommended that you keep them in the refrigerator (where they'll last several months). If you stick them in the freezer, they get extra chewy and delicious! (And in there they'll never get completely hard and they'll basically never go bad. A double bonus!) They shouldn't be kept in very hot/warm places as they will get melty.

Since I'm starting the bidding at $15, I'll pay for shipping. I'd prefer to do continental US shipping (since I over-worry about the transit) but since these candies are mostly indestructible, if you're enthusiastic and want to chance it I'd be willing to ship elsewhere too.

If the bidding goes above $50, I'll make 1 pound of candy for the second highest bidder as well. :)
