|J.C. Penny Happy Chic Jonathan Adler Canisters|
Click, click, click. Done.
When I picked the box up off the porch I heard a disturbing sound. Somewhat like broken pottery jiggling around. Boo.
And this is what I found inside. Very little wrapping.
And broken canisters.
One looked okay. But when I pulled the plastic tape off the lid, the paint came off.
Now, on the very same day yet ANOTHER Bauer rose bowl arrived from a seller on eBay (I am a little obsessed with getting a set in white to decorate for parties).
Now that is how you ship a ceramic!
No way did I want to pay for postage back on three ceramic canisters in a giant box, so I dutifully complied with the instructions to return my order to a JCP store "... this is the quickest and easiest way to return merchandise."
First I had to find a JCP and learned they are NOT conveniently located near my home. Then I had to take the giant son with to haul the hefty box into the store. After tromping up several escalators with said box, and waiting in a long line, we learned that we could only return home goods at a JCP Home Goods store (not mentioned in the return policy). Luckily, one was across the parking lot. Once in the store, we couldn't return the canisters at a regular counter, we had to take them to the "internet returns" desk. What a pain in the a _ _.
Sorry JCP. That was my last online purchase from you, and I primarily shop online. To be fair, the Jonathan Adler stuff was really nice. The linens were awesome actually. I stuck to my guns and exited the store.
We do love happy endings on this blog.
My patience was rewarded. Found these little pretties at a Pier 1 Imports a week or so later. In person, no shipping and half the price. I may actually like them better. Kind of goes with the Australian Art Nouveau tile.
Which is a whole other story.
