Stolen goods

Hi, I just wanted to ask if people could keep an eye out for a necklace like my ‘tiny girl’ diorama necklace. Today a shop I sell at had numerous items stolen and I lost almost a months worth of shop rent. The pieces I lost are quite recognisable as they are all one offs, I’m on my phone and am away from my computer so can’t post pictures right now. We think they are holiday makers that have stolen for gifts or personal use, but I’m going to keep an eye out online too. I’m gutted! The shop is in Conwy, north Wales. Thanjs

That’s awful Lowri, I’m so sorry this has happened to you. Your items are instantly recognisable, so hopefully they’ll be spotted by someone and returned.

That’s horrible news, it’s such a nasty feeling too having your work stolen. I had a few items stolen myself from a shop Im selling through but there has been no sign. I hope you either find the culprit or get your items back.

Oh gosh, hope you’ll have all your pieces back Lowri…Fingers crossed police catch them.

Thanks everyone, I don’t think any of us will get our stuff back but I wanted to put it out there incase anyone does spot them. They stole from 4 crafters in total, and the shop owners 8year old daughter who was selling bracelets she made. Awful stuff

Honestly some people are just disgusting in the way they behave.How can they get pleasure from something knowing they stole it :person_frowning:

It’s strange isn’t it. A while ago I worked for a well-known catalogue shop, and we had items shoplifted from time to time. The only time I saw the manager completely taken aback was when thieves stole a large singing santa decoration. As he said “How can you steal something like a decoration? How could you look at it?”

There are some strange people out there! I just don’t understand stealing, if your children are starving and you literally have no money to spend then I could understand stealing food but otherwise it’s just ridiculous!
