I just wanted to post a quikie! man, I am pissed. I went shopping today... found a marvelous antique mall here in birmingham. they were having great sales. I found an ornate sterling silver letter opener by reed & Barton... in great shape, btw. it was 50% off of $10!!! I had so much stuff, the gentleman helping me was keeping everything up front at the check out. well, after I paid, I felt a little uneasy...like something was wrong! I got home to inventory everything and my letter opener conveniently "disappeared"!!! I hate it when that happens! this is the second time in 2 months this has happened to me. arrrggggg!!! why do they do that? the last time I bought (or was going to buy) a gorgeous French lace tablecloth. showed it to my friend and took it up front while I dug around some more. the sales lady (also a vendor at the mall) asked where i found it...said it was beautiful. later, when I went to pay, the table cloth was gone!!! the sales lady had the audacity to shrug and tell me she didn't know which tablecloth I was referring to!!! it just disappeared into thin air!!! why!? I thought I'd feel better if I vented, but... not so much :-(
