I bought an onbuhimo from a mama here and due to some stupid messups on my dumb paypal page it got sent to our old Oregon address.<br><br>
It got delivered there and accepted (I have the tracking number) on the 9th. It's now the 21st and I have yet to see it. I was hoping the person who now lives there (assuming anyone does) would have sent it back to either the mama or that it would have gotten picked up due to our address changes. So far nothing though.<br><br>
I'm sad. I want this carrier so bad! So I am thinking of writing my old address and basically saying hey, something of mine got sent there by mistake can you send it back to the sender or forward it to me. That's assuming someone lives there. What if it's an empty apartment though? It's possibly just sitting in the box waiting for me. I know the mailman and if that were the case he knocks on the door to make sure someone lives there and if no answer takes it back until he can get confirmation, usually via an address change or utility setup/bill. He is a fabulous mailman! So if no one is living there I want to write the post office there and explain what happened. How would that letter go though?<br><br>
Or is it all just a lost cause by now?<br><br>
(This is not about the mama who sold it to me! We are in communication...this is just about writing a letter to a possibly non-existent stranger asking them to forward me a package they have no idea is actually mine or not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

I would first try calling the post office at your old address and the management office for your old apartment to see if the package is in either location. After that maybe a quick note to the possible new tenants - Just "hey, if this package showed up please contact me so I can pay shipping to my new address."<br><br>
Did you put in a change of address with the post office?
