I would drop by Velvet goldmine. I don’t think he has time for other work outside of what he sells but if you get good small talk going he would definitely know some good spots to take your piece(s) to. It’s a great shop btw

I was offered a position through a recruiter and the company is now doing a background check. I haven’t received a written offer letter or started any paperwork.

After receiving the offer I turned down a final interview with another company. I’ve also been invited to another interview with someone else.

I don’t feel comfortable continuously turning down interviews if I don’t have a written offer or started any paperwork. I want to email HR about the process but what should I say?
