Q: My son sent me a beautiful musical snow globe from Germany many years ago. The liquid inside is not as clear as it used to be, but the music box part still works perfectly. It has a lot of sentimental meaning for me, and I want to have it repaired. I haven’t been able to find anyone in the area who works on these. Can you recommend a company I can send it to? Thank you. — Geri Adams, email
