      I've just had one of my missing parcels, sent from Ireland to Holland, turn up after 72 days! a record as far as I'm concerned.

        My brother who lives in New York once made me the best mixtape ever, but the postal service lost it. I still think about it sometimes...

Has anyone seen one of these yet? I'm wondering if it's possible to get a roll of those as well or do they print the barcode at the counter?
          You can get a roll of the barcode ones. Wow, my first post of 2021 is the dullest ever - things can only get better!

            Good to see you back round this neck of the woods anyway The Divine One.

            I seem to have been lucky with my record parcels both pre/post Brexit - an Lp ordered from Portugal in December arrived in good time and an Lp from Germany ordered last week landed earlier this week.

                I had an LP arrive from Holland within a week (posted the 3rd of January) but am still waiting on a tape (yes really) coming from Sweden that was posted end of December but that is still early days yet. Definitely more conscious of not buying from Europe at the moment unless it is a must have rarity

                    Much to my amazement, an LP posted in France on Dec 1st which I'd assumed was lost just turned up today. No clues on the package as to where's it been the past 84 days. 84 DAYS. So there's still hope..! Maybe.

                    (full disclosure: it's the 1976 French repress of Tangerine Dream's Zeit double, accidentally pressed off master tapes running backwards by Barclay. Does this mean I might travel backwards in time when I play it? Guess I'll find out soon enough).

                      A first for me: I sent 3 LPs to a buyer in Belgium. The LPs came back to me and the buyer told me that the Belgian Post Office hadn't even attempted to deliver it. When he contacted them, they apparently said: "We don't know what happened". This is a parcel sent tracked and insured. They don't know what happened. Maybe they should become vegetable farmers instead.

                        Another first. The Netherlands Post Office contact a buyer of mine to say, they can't deliver the tracked insures parcel because they can't read the address on it. All the info is in the system, and they actually contacted her. WTF? You couldn't make up this idiocy. Still waiting on the results of this one.
