You may remember back in November I posted a blog about a gallery show I was going to be in called Soft Served. Well I posted my stuff off to them on 16th November and by the time the show opened on 11th December my stuff had still not arrived. By 7th January when the show closed my stuff had still not arrived. I went to our local post office 5 or 6 times between the end of November and the middle of January and asked them to track what had happened to these parcels. Each time they gave me some excuse about why it was still too early to track and I should come back another day. Eventually after much persuasion I got them to fill out the search form. Every time I've been to the post office since then I've asked for news of my parcels and been told- nothing yet, you must wait. Today - 28th February I went to the post office to send something. I had totally given up hope and wasn't even going to ask about my parcels today - but amazingly, as soon as I walked in, the man told me that one of the parcels I had lost had been returned! Looking at it I can't see any evidence that it even made it to USA other than the fact that the return to sender label is printed in English - but I don't even know if that means it was returned from USA. Any American readers recognise that RTS sticker? It hasn't been opened by customs or anyone else - when I opened it everything was inside just as I had sent it!
Who knows what kind of journey these little people have been on and although I was sad that they didn't make it to the show, I'm very happy to have them back again! They will be available in my Etsy Shop soon.
And here's to hoping that the other lost parcel will return very soon :)
