Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Last weekend's Kimball Arts Festival was visited by thieves who came in the night and burglarized several tents.
Police say sometime between 1am and 6am Sunday a person, or group of people, burglarized seven booths. Two of the items stolen were hand-carved wooden chairs valued at $11,000.
"I found out about it as I was walking down the street this morning 39 back to my booth someone had some chairs stolen," said Ron Benoit of Woodensound Fine Woodworking.
They weren't Benoit's chairs, but the artist in the booth next to his. Along with the two chairs, several art pieces and a handmade jacket were stolen. A sculpture was also vandalized.
This is a long running and highly respected festival.
What precautions do you take to prevent this from happening to you?
