A few weeks ago, I ordered some goodies from Moorea Seal. Do you know about Moorea? I met her in 2013 when I spoke at Camp Mighty, and at the time, she was selling her own handmade jewelry on Etsy. Fast forward two years, and Moorea now runs an online shop with goods from more than 50 brands, and she’s got a gorgeous storefront in Seattle, and her first book, The 52 Lists Project, was just published. Also cool: As part of their Shop By Cause program, Moorea Seal donates 7% of all sales to non-profit groups in five categories.
Anyway, back to the point of this post! I ordered some goodies from Moorea Seal, and later that day, I got a shipping notification. Now, I LOVE tracking numbers. If I have a tracking number, I will check it three times a day and sign up for text notifications just so I can obsess over where my stuff is and how soon it’s going to be in my mailbox. This time was no different, except…well, except instead of arriving in my mailbox, my package decided to take a ridiculous 17-day journey around New York City, hitting post office after post office in two boroughs. I kind of wish I had transcripts of my phone conversations with the USPS, because it’s pretty amusing to hear people find creative ways of saying, “We have no idea where the package is, why we’re not able to find it or stop it, or if you’re ever going to get it. Thank you for your patience!” Anyway, somewhere around day 14, I decided the package was never going to show up, and Moorea Seal’s excellent customer service people sent out a replacement.
Then, of course, both packages showed up. On the same day. Hah! So now I have two sets of goodies, and instead of sending one set back, I suggested that I do a giveaway. Thanks, USPS!
