So I was gifted a few thousand dollars and decided to splurge on a Valentino
Patent Bow bag.
I had first seen them in Nordstrom’s in Hawaii and fell in love !
I was on eBay and saw this exact style but in hot pink ! I then made the purchase and waited for it to arrive.
Time passed, and when a large box arrived, I decided to wait a few more days and savour the anticipation !
When I couldn’t take it anymore, I opened it up …..only to find a Bratz doll set I had purchased for a friend who collects them.
So I wait another week. Finally I contact the seller and ask her where it was.
She checked her tracking and to my confusion, I was told it had been DELIVERED on May 5 !
I explained it could not be - I lived alone and when something did not fit in the mailbox and or nobody answered the buzzer, a slip was left to go collect it at the local retail postal outlet.
So I knew was no way this could be ! But she said - the delivery confirmation was all the “evidence”
So I set out to find my bag!
I went to the postal outlet and there was nothing for me. She couldn’t see what happened on her computer, and gave me a number to call - which was useless.
I went on the USPS website where it did indeed state it was “Delivered” nothing else.
But when I put the tracking # into the Canada post site it not only showed who signed for it ( “Concierge” ) but it also showed the signature!
I called Canada Post and the girl was very helpful. I then learned that the postal code to where it was sent was not mine, but my old address I had moved from 2 years ago!
I went there to talk to the ladies in the office . She told me it was her signature, but she did not have the package there.
She thought perhaps it was returned to Canada Post - but I knew this was not the case.
I suggested that Mabey somehow it had been delivered to my old suite ( I also found out it wasn’t in my name - but in my Business name ! )
She called the lady at work to see if she had it ….and she DID!!
Omg what a relief ! And how nice to know that honest people still do exist.
Off to go back to the building to pick it up ( if the office happens to be open today ) I will have to update you when I return .
On another note, to console myself during the crisis …I just had to buy the same bag in black ( like in the link
Above ) but instead of the medium
Size, I got the XL!
Waiting on that one ( but yes I checked the address this time and yes it’s coming here !
Note to self -always double check shipping address even after hundreds of
Packages shipped to this address - one never knows if a screw up could happen - leaving me stressed out and bag less.
Xox Happy Sunday ! Xox
