Even with the rattle the box didn't really show any damage.
Look how nicely packaged it is so far.
Nice and bubble wrapped....
Uh-oh ... Poor Amish Butterprint 444... You will be missed. I wanted this bowl but I have another one. My real concern was the rest of the shipment.
AMAZING 441 -- Balloons in almost mint condition. It was so well wrapped inside the poor destroyed bowl. It didn't even have a scratch on it. Time to see the rest of them.
More great wrapping...
Bubble wrap galore. It was well wrapped and taped up.
So far it's looking good.
WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!! Still in great shape.
YAY!!!!!!!! My balloons are up, up and away.
The rest of the story is this.... I found the 441 and the 444 Amish butterprint on Etsy for less than $20 and then the seller sent me a convo letting me know she had the larger bowl if I would like to purchase it also. I think I scared her with how quick I said YES! I am disappointed in the broken bowl but I am certain it was USPS fault and not the shipper. She had everything well packaged and still there was damage. She offered to pay me back for the broken bowl. I think USPS should be paying me back. I think they probably toss these boxes around like they were pillows.
