Thieving Makes me so Mad

An Update: Last night my market bag was stolen from Mum's car in her garage. It included all my inventory plus tools and supplies - both handmade and boughten. So between this and the owner of Flirt ( which she closed) not returning my stock (retail value: $1140), I have nothing as far as my jewellery practice is concerned.
Soooooooo I may not be at the market for a bit and I am really not sure what I'll do. There were some custom orders that I finished up this week and the part that makes me feel the worst is that those items are gone too. My sincerest apologies to those who entrusted me with their beads or had special requests on the way.
.........................argh
Here are some recent examples in case you see them on the street....

Oh Tamara! That is horrible! Grrrr...I am growling for you! People are so nasty! And, the worst of it is it was probably some dumb kid. Last week someone took John's backpack from our car in our driveway. They dumped out the smelly gym clothes though, apparently they didn't want those! Hopefully it will turn up once someone realizes that they can't use what is in the bag!

That store owner thing is terrible too. Last summer, I put just a few pieces in a well known store here in Charlottetown. And after about a month and a half, of no sales, and not being totally happy with how they displayed my jewellery, I decided best to take another route (my website) for selling. The store bagged everything up, I even left a gift bracelet for the store owner. When I checked items off the invoice, I was short four items. Earrings and little pendants. Not a huge value. I contacted the store owner, she nicely said she'd check, perhaps they sold and I just didn't get paid yet. And then nothing. Not one more word from her.
Now whenever I hear someone talking about her store I cringe. It's just such a horrible way to do business! I'd never rip anyone off. Never. I'm making myself mad again...lol.

Sorry Tam for your troubles...feel for ya.
