Loop the LOUPE!
In November I sold a very beautiful old jeweller`s magnifying glass loupe to a wonderful lady in the US. It was to be a very special gift for her mum.
With the French postal system there is no tracking for items under 2 kilo, so, if something is special it is wise to pay for the extra tracking service.
So, I paid for a full followed and signed for service and of course......it went missing!!! The tracking stopped dead in December at a Paris airport.
My lovely buyer was very, very patient and we all waited for its arrival " just in case" the Christmas post was backed up somewhere.
A week ago it had still not arrived so I refunded my lady fully as La poste had not come up with any answers.
Then to my surprise this morning there was a box on the doorstep! The loupe!!!
No explanation just a label stating " Unclaimed".
So after all it`s travels and wherever it has been it will be listed again this evening.
A very well travelled petite loupe!!
Bon weekend mes belles
