Good news/bad news. Good news: The Burberry package showed up! Bad news: Damaged. Dude's co-worker (he's on his honeymoon) says it showed today all beaten to hell. I Tyvek'd the hell out of it, so I'm hoping its fine.
And on the other one: Good news: Buyer actually responded to my polite email with a polite response. Bad news: He's basically backing out. Good news: He probably would have returned anyway, so he's just saved me some hassle.
Wow, that's about as good as it gets in my book! A bit of honesty on a few strangers' part and you don't have to deal with returns. Congrats on all of that.
