Over a year ago I provided a box of items for an exclusively handmade boutique that opened up in my hometown. I wasn't there to see how it went and I won't go into the gory details here, but the short story is the shop closed last summer and I am only now getting my unsold items back. I'm only getting them back now because I threatened legal action.
It was a headache, but a good business lesson, I suppose.
A few of the reclaimed animals (a linen dog and a corduroy bear) are now up for sale in the shop, where they should have been in the first place.
