Have you seen this jacket? If you do, please let me know and/or please share this post and help spread the word of what I am about to share.
This unique and special piece was not sold…..it was STOLEN. It was taken from my booth at a recent show sometime between the time I left for the day after my show set up on April 4th and the morning of the first day of the show on April 5th. I started the first day of my show by coming in to find the empty hanger on my garment rack and the jacket gone.
I am heartbroken and saddened that this could happen. I truly hope that it was not a fellow artist who would cause such hurt to another. I will probably never know who the culprit was….or why.
I can only hope that – even though it will be achieved in the wrong way and they do not deserve it – that my work brings them joy. It is after all why I create my pieces and what I hope to give each person who wears them. I guess I can also feel good about the fact that it was so amazing that someone just had to have it at all costs.
It still smarts though…..
