I am not actually sure who had them most recently. I wanted to be "Mysteriously" clever about it by saying you might want to post a guard at your inbox or soldier on in looking for it but, whatever. It's (deleted). I'm tired.

I was told to remove the name. Sorry.

A couple of years ago I would have been applying immediately, but there's only going to be three of us for Christmas dinner and Hubby already bought one of the company's turkey breasts from an organization that was selling them as a fundraiser.

Found it! Different company from the last time I was able to snag a shop (2013). One of the locations nearby is still available but the scenario for this location is half-ham, bone-in, and I just don't have room for it. Someone else will get this $80 ham. Enjoy, stranger.
So sad……I looked for over an hour and still could not find them.

I did find a few good shops with some companies that I haven’t done work for in a loooooong time. I guess it pays to blow the dust off my login list every once in a while.
I sent a PM to anyone that needed the company name.

I could change the scenario to the quarter ham if you needed that one. smiling smiley If it's still on the board request if you would like send me a PM with your email address.

I didn't get the one I applied for but it makes sense. I don't think I have ever shopped for this MSC, even though I've been signed up forever. There are mostly restaurants usually in my area and those don't turn me on. I am sure they've got proven shoppers so I can't blame them for going with shoppers that they know will come through.

What do you need for the pictures? Do you need to unwrap this. We will be visiting family, but I can't bring something opened over. Thanks.
There are a number of photos. Wrapped, different unwrapped views, spread the slices photo, etc. It won't work as a gift after you take the photos unless you know them very well and tolerate your mystery shopping habits well.

For those reluctant to take this shop due to the size of the ham, I did this once and after slicing, froze the leftover ham. It was still good months later!

I've noticed a lot of the companies I'm signed up for the e-mail option has been turned off. I believe they are Sassie companies.

My e-mail address is from Microsoft and I've done recent shops for them and then suddenly, I stop getting e-mails with new shop requests.

I'm not sure why this happens. Can anyone help me prevent this from happening?
This has been a Sassie problem since, well, since internet was born. Every now & then email notifications get shut off. No one knows why and no one is ever notified. The only thing you can do is check each of your Sassie accounts individually. I never get past G, alphabetically. I get bored.

I was assigned an in-store purchase scenario, meaning that I can't order it in advance. What is the likelihood of them having the large one in stock when I go to the store?

How yo got it? I could not see such shops in 150+ miles from my home. We are about the same state.

They have tons in store. I requested a shop but didn't get it but went and picked up some turkey today and they were fully stocked.
I am so happy to get one since there will be 13 household members for Christmas dinner. After taking all the required pictures, I plan to fan out the slices on a pretty plate and add garnish (pineapple and cherries to add color). It would look much nicer to bring a plate of ham than in the original wrapper.

That's a great idea. My husband said his aunt would not care. I feel it's not right. We would be bringing gifts/cookies etc so this would be extra, but the replating might work.
Two thoughts about re-plating:

1. Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death (eek! let's not go there.)
2. Some people would think it great fun and play along with you, if they found out your little secret. They might ooh, aah, and otherwise enjoy the game. This is what we do.
