Crafty Celts have been a fabulous part of so many such gatherings and events for the last 30-ish years, and now they could use some help.
This dirtbaggery massively sucks on several levels, but one aspect that really bugs me is that a lot of these events aren't just craft shows or weekend entertainment. They're miniature communities on their own, made up of people that don't always fit that nice, neat social norms space labeled "mainstream" or "average" or "normal". They're our places to be ourselves, around other people who generally get where we're at and don't think we need a psych evaluation or an intervention because we think period digs are a perfectly awesome fashion statement, or we'd rather hang out with pre-Christian deities than Jesus, or we geek out over history and archaeology.
Ripping off artists that have put a lot of time, research, and hard work into such quality pieces and then take on even more work to bring them to their public at local festivals is bad enough. But when somebody steals from someone at one of these events, it's often more or less stealing from your own family or friends.
That pretty much means the thieves are not only pathetic little rat bastards, they're an offense to the gods and Ancestors venerated by the same cultures Crafty Celts' work represents.
May the weight of their actions come back to them in appropriate measure until they make honorable restitution (wish goes out).
