I sent my sister a Priority Mail package for her birthday. I scarf that I knit. It was supposed to arrive in 2-3 days. It took 10! Now I use Fed Ex ground.

I've had problems with things taking longer than they're supposed to also. Its such a bummer when you see its just been sitting somewhere for days (in your case a few weeks). Maybe there's you can talk to someone at the post office who can help you out and let you know what's going on with it because that seems really abnormal to me that it would be sitting in NJ for 2 weeks. Also, I'd suggest letting your buyer know what's going on, I'm sure most peple will see that its not your fault and hopefully be understanding. I hope everything works out for you.

Ugg, the post office near my father's house was run by a bunch of crooked employees. They would open packages frequently and take stuff, and even delay the delivery of holiday and birthday packages by six months or more!
