dang it!

Not to steal Soon2be's thunder, but I gotta vent, too.

I'm so sad...I ordered these super cute personalized fruit candy tins for Margaret's bridal shower favors this weekend. I had them shipped to my parent's house since that's where we're having the shower. I came home today and found the package had still not arrived, even though it shipped out on 8/30. So I called both UPS and the company (www.beau-coup.com) because the tracking shipment page said it arrived in the bay area on 9/5...so I figured it really should've been here (it's been 8 days!).

UPS told me to call the company to put a tracer on it. The lady at beau-coup was actually really nice and talked to UPS about it and came to the conclusion that it's a lost package. She offered some other options, but we both realized nothing was realistically going to happen between now and Saturday afternoon.

I'm not too stressed or angry because I have other stuff for favors, but the tins would've been a nice touch. At least beau-coup was pretty nice and understanding, so really I blame UPS for losing the package and myself for not checking on this earlier. Dang it! =\

Kristen,

A friend of mine works at this wedding favor store in Walnut Creek called Unveiled Favors, Gifts & Accessories - http://www.unveiledeventsandgifts.com/. I am not sure if they have the same fruit candy tins, but you can definitely go check out what they have available at this last minute. Her name is Cheryl and if you do go, please tell her that Evonne Wong referred you. Good luck!

Ooooh I saw that store at a bridal faire and loved everything there! But sorry about the shipping troubles, that's really a bummer.
