How long does the P.O keep items before returning them? It is 18 days in the UK.
It depends. If a parcel gets 'carded', i.e. the postman leaves a card to tell you to go to the post office to collect it yourself (sometimes lying about having attempted delivery to the address but nobody was home to receive it), the card usually states, "Please collect within five days." I think the actual operating procedure is to allow ten business days, which would be (if worst comes to worst) just OK if my local post office 'starts the clock' on the day I fly out.
OTOH, which pen display case did you get?
Ferocase Pan-Gora Classic Pen Box (45 pens) [FER-930]

Hmmm, I have no idea why that link wouldn't work when I click on it, but if I just pasted the URL into a browser window it works.
