Can anyone help me get the items that I sold to a company back? They were precious to me and others. Now not a day goes by when I don't think about my stupid mistake. I wish I could go back in time and change what I did. Can anyone take their time to help me think of a solution. As my items may be in Europe or in a second hand shop now :'( I have realised what I have done and I do not want to give up my search, as I know these items are somewhere on Earth! So please help!

What sort of items were they? Have you tried contacting the company? Don't give up hope; but don't forget that they are material belongings. I'm not by any means attempting  to downplay any emotional attachment you have to them, or any guilt you feel for selling them. You do have memories of them. If you can't find them, then you just need to ask for forgiveness. You could try looking on some of those websites where people sell used items.

Best wishes and God bless,


A backpack and a pair of boots... I know they sound like lame items but they were my boyfriends and my mother's.  I have a lot of memories of them in those items.  Yes several times but they weren't really interested in helping me and were mean to me over the phone :'( yes I know that, but my life would be so much easier and I would be much happier if I could get them back not just for my sake but for my mother and boyfriend too. Ok thank you I will try that, I've been trying to contact several second hand clothing wholesalers,  but they won't go through large bags for separate items :'( Thank you, it was nice to talk to someone who understands :-)

You're more than welcome, I'm glad I could help you to feel a bit better. I know that things that may seem small can mean a lot because they hold so many memories, so much sentimental value. I've been in the practice (and sometimes it's difficult) of trying to place more value on memories than on the objects I have (or had) that represent them. Two things you can keep in mind that may help: your memories cannot be taken from you, but belongings can...and somebody who may really need a backpack, or a pair of boots, may get yours from a shop;  then you've really helped someone- and you still have your memories. Don't feel bad about selling them. What's done is done and there's no use in making yourself feel bad about it, okay? I wish you the best.
Thank you again,  it's more than some people have done for me recently. Yes I understand that, and I will try. I will also keep trying to get in contact with second hand wholesalers and second hand shops in Europe. As I have quite a lot of spare time anyway and it's usually wasted doing silly things, so this gives me something useful to do and think about. It still worries me though,  and I just wish I could turn back time and go back to the day where I made that huge mistake :'( but unfortunately that's not possible. :-( thank you, I wish you well too.
