Losing my marbles over missing puzzle pieces


For everyone who donates to local thrift stores, please don’t give stuff that’s incomplete. I am a buyer of certain brand puzzles and hunt them out; “home town collection” is one, and when I find them, I buy. But, when I got one home and started it and found marbles in the box, that should have been a clue.

If the puzzles are missing more than 5 pieces, don’t donate. The one I got was missing about 100. Just trash them. I have to trash it now, but thanks for the marbles. Maybe I can use them later when I loose mine.

I am not involved with any thrift store, but do go to all on South End.
