Calgary woman ‘ecstatic’ her lost jewelry found

"The Quail's Gate winery restaurant staff found the box and they had it behind the counter waiting for someone to claim it."

A Calgary woman’s plea for help in finding her lost jewelry box has been answered.

Quails’ Gate Estate Winery in West Kelowna alerted Christine Lundahl on Tuesday that her jewelry box was found with all the contents inside.

In a story published in Wednesday’s Kelowna Capital News, Lundahl explained the winery was one of three places that Lundahl believes she could have misplaced the jewelry box last Sunday.

“I’m just ecstatic. Wasn’t that amazing? The winery restaurant staff had found the box after it fell out of my purse and they had it behind the counter waiting for someone to claim it,” Lundahl said.

“It was my mistake losing it in the first place so I give full credit to the staff at the winery for helping find it.

“I am very thankful to (the winery staff) as it already was a difficult trip because of my uncle’s condition with Alzheimer’s disease but losing the jewelry box made it that much worse. “
