    I know it's been a long time since I've been on Catskills. But here I stand, reaching out to the fine people of this shard, the shard I still call 'home', even though i've been on Lake Austin for years.

    A horrible injustice was done to my husband, due to an oversight on his part. He accidentally had a few boxes in his home set to friends/guildmates. From that accident, someone happily helped themselves to his prized possessions. He's lost all his snowglobe sets he worked for years on completing, along with many tokens (including 2 x-shard), all his dye tubs (the old non-vet black ones as well) and lots of ranger armor (along with other named armor sets).

    While we both know that the tokens are worth the most, we also know we can't possibly replace them. However, the snowglobes were truly his pride and joy. He really worked so hard on completing all 3 sets.

    So what am I asking? I'm asking, if you have any snowglobes, would you please consider parting with them? I will happily pay. I know I have a few here and there, and can probably start rebuilding his set, but I never collected the city ones, so there I start fresh.

    This whole situation breaks my heart. My husband is such a 'collector', he prides himself on getting full sets of anything and everything. He also goes out of his way to help others and will give them the shirt off his own back if they were to need it. The worst of all of this, is knowing that someone we trusted did this.

    Neph, been a long time my friend. If you can give me a day or two I'm pretty sure I can find a bunch of globes and stuff. I seem to be the pixel crack queen. I just have a few houses I have to dig thru. Can you PM me what you are looking for and ill go thru my junk and get together what I can.

    Thanks so much Anne. :)

    We have all the time in the world, really. It took him 6+ years to finish the snow globe collections, I feel it may take at least that long to put his collection back together again. I will PM you when I take stock of what I currently have to start piecing up sets.

    Thank you so much. It warms my heart to see such kindness. In one day, we went from realizing we had lost all those snowglobes, to having all but one single snowglobe back. :heart:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Sadly, that's not one of the duplicates I have - I wish you luck getting that last one, I'm sure someone can help you out.

    Luvmylace - that would be so lovely of you. I won't be able to log on until this evening (after 6pm EST), as I'm at work today. Will that be ok? I am available evenings all week (or should be, as long as I'm not stuck working o/t this week)

    That was the last snowglobe we needed to re-finish the set. :)
